Expensive doesn’t always mean good!

Don’t judge the photographer by the price tag. The expensive quotations depends on a plethora of reasons—inventory of equipments, industry experience or the only form of income. Look for consistency in the portfolios instead—is the editing consistent? How would you describe their work—light, airy and romantic or dark and moody? Is the style consistent across the gallery?

What is your ideal style? Find it!

It is important to know what you are looking for. Is candid your style or do you prefer the traditional art of photography? What is the essence that you want—light and chirpy or dark and intense? Your photographs should speak of your taste, preference and style. The key word is YOU!

Don’t judge a book by its cover!

After shortlisting photographers go through the complete wedding sets. You don’t need 10 masterpieces but an album that tells the tale for a lifetime. Analysing the quality across the complete set is essential. It gives you a better understanding of the art of storytelling through pictures.
