Which Sandpoint Idaho engagement photographer is right for you?

Most couples who are looking for aSandpoint Idaho engagement photographer will want to use the pictures for a save the date card or use them for their actual wedding invitations. You will want to meet with at least 3 photographers before you choose the one who is right for you. Some things to keep in mind:

1. Do you love their past work? You want to choose someone who has past work to show you. It is important that you like their style of photography.

2. Do they have professional camera equipment. I feel it is important for my clients to know what kind of equipment I use so they know that they are getting a good value for choosing me as their photographer. I suggest asking what camera body they use and later check if it is considered a professional camera or not. There is a lot of photographers out there that charge a very high price using substandard equipment. Believe me it makes it big difference in how your pictures look.

3. What are their prices like? Are their prices going to fit into your budget. It is easy to break the bank when planning for your wedding and yes the photographer is important but you want to choose one that gives you great images for a great price too. And one that offers affordable products such as albums and enlargements.

Finding the Right Photographer for Your Engagement Pictures in Coeur d’Alene Idaho

Understand that the best photographers will fill up their wedding appointment book very fast. Some will even be booked years in advance. As soon as you set a date, you need to be looking for a photographer. This is the first decision you should make and you can even make this decision before you have a place booked for the wedding and reception.

You want to search online and find out if the photographers you are considering have a website and an online portfolio. This will help you to see their work and figure out whether they really are a talented photographer with a passion for taking pictures, or if they are just out to make a few dollars with an expensive camera.

After you have viewed their work online, and you like what you see, it is time to meet them in person. You want someone that is going to be very laid back with you and will make you feel comfortable. Planning a wedding and getting married is already stressful enough. You don’t need any added stress from a photographer that is not professional and relaxed.

Make sure you take the time to see their physical portfolio and ask them if they have any recent wedding pictures they have done for other couples. The recent pictures will show you what they are currently capable of doing. Sometimes the portfolio will be the absolute best shots they have taken, whereas seeing actual wedding pictures can show you the variety of what they took for one couple.
