FINDING AN OREGON WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER
Oregon Wedding Photographer Jack Adams offers Oregon brides the very best in wedding photography
Are you getting married in Oregon? Who will be your wedding photographer?
Here is a list of some of the things you should consider when looking for a wedding photographer in Oregon, or elsewhere in the Pacific Northwest.
/ / 1 PERSONALITY
When choosing a wedding photographer you are selecting more than just a photographer for your wedding day. You are hiring a wedding photographer that will be with you, your family and your group all day on your wedding day. You want someone with whom you will be able to have fun with while capturing some amazing imagery that tells the story of your wedding day. Personality is a huge part of the selection process and should not be overlooked or discounted in any way.
Your wedding photographer’s personality can set the tone for your entire wedding day for you, your bridal party, and your guests. Ultimately it can impact your wedding photography entirely. You will more than likely be working with your wedding photographer for a year, or longer in some cases, by the time you factor in your engagement session, post wedding photography and albums.
/ / 2 PRICE
While price is always a factor when selecting your Oregon wedding photographer, it should not be the only thing that matters. All too often we hear horror stories from brides who made a decision for their wedding photography based purely on price. It turns out to be foolish in the end. When its all said and done, your wedding photography will be all you have to remember your wedding day.
/ / 3 WEDDING ALBUMS
What will you do with all your images from your wedding photographer? Most people opt to place them in a beautifully designed wedding album that your wedding photographer should provide you with. Don’t underestimate the importance of a wedding album from your wedding day. This is your first family heirloom and your one keepsake you will have forever to remember your Oregon wedding.
When selecting a wedding photographer you should look for an album that best represents you and your new family. Wedding albums come in all shapes and sizes. Questions you should ask your wedding photographer 1) How many pages come in the wedding album? 2) How many images will be in the wedding album? 3) What design options are available for my wedding album?
/ / 4 COVERAGE
Something often overlooked when selecting a wedding photographer is the number of hours that will be offered during the coverage of your Oregon wedding. Typically you will want your wedding photographer to be with you to document all the special moments of your wedding day. After all, that’s what you are hiring them for. That being said, typical coverage requirements for your wedding day should be about 8-10 hours.
Be careful here. Some wedding photographers offer cut-rate prices by offering you less than adequate wedding coverage for your day. These become hidden costs and once you realize it, it’s often too late.
/ / 5 NUMBER OF WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHERS
How many wedding photographers will be at your event? Most events need at least two wedding photographers. This ensures that your wedding photographer is focused on working with your group and directing the day while allowing the second wedding photographer to have additional coverage going on at the same time.
We find that by having two Oregon wedding photographers at your event, your wedding photography needs can best be met all while ensuring that nothing gets missed from your big day.
