In the name of complete transparency, click here for access to a complete gallery that I’ve delivered a past couple of mine. This is exactly what they received from me.
If you’re still deciding between multiple photographers, here’s a hot tip; get access to full galleries from the photographer. Anyone can make an Instagram feed or website home page look pretty.
- Can you see yourselves in the kind of photos your photographer takes?
- Do you love the way all of the images look – the editing, the colours, the vibe?
- Going beyond just the ‘hero shots’, does the whole gallery look great quality & consistent? Do they nail the family photos, the ceremony photos? Does everyone look comfortable in the photos?
If you can honestly answer all of these questions together, you’re most of the way there in deciding your wedding photographer. And importantly, you’re also going to have a really good idea of the product that you’ll receive after your wedding. With no nasty surprises; like ‘Shit, my whole gallery doesn’t look anything like the photographers fancy Instagram feed does.’
You should only have good surprises in your final gallery; such as awesome fleeting moments that you didn’t see happen on the day, or creative shots that you never expected.
And, the two of you looking like total rock stars in front of the camera.
