When you are planning your wedding you are going to want to find an event photographer. You will want them to possess a few qualities such as style, motivation, experience and good communication. An excellent event photographer will only posses these qualities through experience, so make sure that they are well trained and can focus on what you want is important.
Every event photographer will have their own style. The photographers style should coincide with your idea of the type of wedding pictures you want. Otherwise you might end up having a horrible experience. Every event photographer will have a different style. Traditional and wild are two extreme styles of photographers. Photos of the bride and groom, and the wedding party are examples of a traditional style. Making funny faces and having completely serious faces might be considered a wild style.
When choosing an event photographer you will want one who is highly motivated. You do not want to have someone who is inactive and sitting around missing all the good pictures they could be capturing. Motivation is not just about wanting to do the job, but finding a way to enjoy it and bring trust as well as good verbal communication to everyone as well.
Experience can only come to an event photographer over time. Make sure you ask your photographer how long they have been in the business, where they attended school and for how long, and who they were employed with before they went into business for themselves (if that is the case). This should help you when making a clear decision on an event photographer. Ask their previous employer what kind of work they produced if they are now in business for themselves. Its better to find out now even if it is kind of a sneaky way of getting the information.
Being relaxed around your event photographer will make things go smother. And they should try to make you feel comfortable and relaxed when around them. Later on at the wedding, this will help them to capture the precious photos. If you are nervous around your event photographer you will see that emotion in your wedding pictures.
