When choosing a photographer to capture one of the most important days of your life, there are many other things to consider besides price. While budgeting is a key factor during the wedding planning process, price shouldn't be the only determining factor for an important part of your special day.
A wedding photographer's style, equipment, experience, skills need to be well researched before making a decision – as well as their character and personality. You can contact professionals who have magic mirror experience in their photography profession.
Style: While each photographer has their unique style, most can be defined as photojournalism, traditional/classic, or visual arts. With the photojournalistic style, photographers strive to capture the day as it unfolds and tends to take more candid photos than other styles.
A traditional or classic style photographer focuses on important wedding events such as the first dance, cake cutting, and flower bouquets. Photographers will also spend more time posing, formal portraits of the newlyweds and their family members, with less attention to open or action photos.
Cost: When calculating your budget, keep in mind that the cost of professional wedding photographers and videographers is usually around 10% of the total wedding budget.
Fees may depend on expected results and services, including length of shoot, number of photographers, engagement photo sessions, image reproduction rights, professional editing, and portfolio. All of these factors can dramatically change the price of a package. Therefore, you need to decide what is most important to you before meeting a photographer.
