Planning your wedding day in Philadelphia? This task can be exciting and tough at the same time. With all of the variety of wedding venues, wedding photographers, videographers, florists, caterers, wedding make up artists and hair stylists, photo booths, at some point you can feel too overwhelmed and helpless in this multitude of diverse services the wedding industry has to offer.
Just type in Google 'wedding photographers in Philadelphia' and you will be amazed by how many great professionals are out there. So how are you going to make your choice and where to start from?
1. Make a list of all the professionals that you loved and narrow them down to 10. Contact them. See who are available and review their pricing. Narrow them down to 3-5 and schedule and in person meeting or a Skype session.
2. Ask your photographer to show you a few complete wedding galleries. This will give you an idea of how the day is documented from the beginning to the end and what you should expect. Preferably, ask the photographer to share a gallery of the wedding that was photographed at the same time of the year as yours. Trust me, Philadelphia summer wedding at Waterworks, for example, will have a completely different look at winter time. Keep in mind, that you don't have to be concerned if your photographer haven't worked at your specific venue before. Simply ask to share a gallery with a similar setting and style of the wedding venue instead.
3. See if you are making a connection on a personal level with the photographer. In the end of the day, this will be the person that you will probably spend more time then you will spend with your future husband/wife on the day of the wedding. Make sure you feel comfortable and relaxed with this person.
