Tips On Choosing The Right Wedding
When you're getting married you experience a magical moment filled with an abundance of joy,
happiness, and love. We understand as a wedding photographer , located in Toronto, how stressful
planning such an event can be. With the vast variety of photographers around how do you even know
where to start? What are the specific things you need to know when deciding on a Toronto wedding
photographer. Prices range from the hundreds to thousands but how do you know which one is actually
the right one for you? Since the digital camera has come out many people deem themselves to be
photographers, many of whom advertise themselves as Toronto wedding photographers when in
actuality they haven't received on bit of training at all. These amateurs don't use professional
equipment and are often not insured. You would also need to note that they usually don't have access
to a studio. This is the reason why choosing a professional wedding photographer is very important as
they will have everything as previously stated. I'm a Toronto wedding photographer and I will help you
with your decision.
How do you start looking for a photographer? Well there are many ways but the two most popular ways
are from word of mouth and search engines. Typing in "Wedding photographers" will bring up hundreds
of thousands of results which can make it more difficult to decide. This is why searching for area specific
photographers is key. Being a wedding photographer in Toronto, my clients would often search the
terms "Toronto wedding photographer" or "wedding photographer Toronto". This would give you a
more narrow list of photographers to choose from. You might also want to choose a photographer who
specializes in weddings though as they may be more experienced in that field although it's optional. So
how exactly do you choose a wedding photographer?
If you are searching online then please pay attention to the photographer's pictures and not their
website. Many photographers often buy a nice flashy looking website but their skills are way under the
radar. Don't be fooled by these amateurs, pay attention to the photos provided in their galleries. Also be
careful when choosing a photographer from a "Professional trade organization" as some of the
organizations only ask photographers to pay an annual fee to join. When browsing through their
websites make sure to check their pricings first before you book an appointment and consult with them.
Your wedding may already be very expensive and most would often look at cutting the cost in the
wedding photography part to save money. But this is often a big regret that many people end up having
because their photos come out dull, not positioned right, and just plain ugly. Don't make that mistake.
In my city many make this mistake when they don't hire a quality Toronto wedding photographer.
When consulting with the photographer make sure you address the following; If they are insured,
negotiate on prices (they would often be open to negotiation), what is included in your package, do they
outsource their services, do they provide a written contract, do they have back up equipment incase
their main ones fail, do they visit the site prior to the wedding, and if they provide online galleries. You
also want to tell them that you want a digital copy to keep for your sake, you could also use this digital
copy to send out to friends and family who couldn't make it. Also, when you're talking to the Toronto
wedding photographer you have decided on, make sure they aren't the type to impose their ideas on
you unless you ask them to as this can be very frustrating to deal with. Imagine after signing a contract
with a photographer you find out that they only want to do it their way, not something you'd want to
deal with. The photographer would most likely be spending most of the day with you so be sure you'll be
able to get along with them as well, this will make the process much easier if your personalities match.
Always remember to ask for the written contract with everything that's included in your package written
in it along with the pricing so you could save yourself the hassle. Remember these advices given to you
from a Toronto wedding photographer and you should be on your way to an amazing wedding!
