About Booking Wedding Photographers
Compare and hire Wedding Photographers, find a Wedding Photographer for Weddings, Parties, and Events on Gig Salad, the event planners resource.
Hiring a wedding photographer is a great way to capture the magical moments of your wedding on film. Whether you prefer black and white or vibrant color photographs, Gig Salad will connect you with a local wedding photographer to help capture the special moments of your big day.
First and foremost, find an event photographer with a style you like. Ask to see a sample of their previous work. Did they connect with the couple to capture the magical moments? Are they more traditional photographers who take snapshots of formal poses, or do they prefer spontaneous artsy shots? If you want special effects, check to see if they offer black and white or sepia tone options. Ask to view the package options. Be sure there is an option that suits your needs. If not, can they create a special package for you? Ask when proofs will be available. Do you get to keep the prints, or will proofs only be accessible online? Are special matting options and albums available? How many shots will they take at the wedding? On average, a photographer will shoot 500 photographs on your wedding day. It is important to choose a photographer who you feel comfortable with to follow around behind the scenes of the wedding. Some of the best candid shots happen while family is helping in the dressing room or when the couple sneaks away from the crowd for a kiss.
