Share your tips for selecting the right wedding photographer.
There are several steps you can take to ensure you receive beautiful photos. Naturally, the key is finding a reputable photographer who can offer the types of shots you desire. Here are some pointers to keep in mind when selecting a photographer and arranging wedding photos.
- When interviewing photographers, ask to see photos from a complete wedding. Any photographer, even a poor one, can piece together a portfolio of his best work. By viewing all the photos from a particular wedding, or even better, the proofs, you can get an idea if the photographer knows his stuff. Your best bet is to go with a referral.

- Set aside enough time for photos. Don't book your ceremony and reception back to back, otherwise the photographer might feel rushed, and it will be evident in your photos.
- Clearly spell out the types of photos you'd like in your contract. If you want photos with all your family members, a shot with your prized pooch or any other particular photos, be sure to speak up.
- Get all extras and special services in writing. Black-and-white photography, digital enhancements and extra prints may cost more. Don't be caught off guard when the bill arrives.
- Confirm all details a few days before. Provide directions to and from your home, church and reception site. No one wants a photographer who is missing in action.
