Few people say weddings are a headache. Well, okay, that's not true; a wedding has the potential to be one of the wonderful celebrations of love and friendship that you can ever experience, but achieving equilibrium between all the moving parts that go into wedding planning can be a massive task. Perhaps the biggest challenge, other than saving up a lot of money, is that you're relying on all your various friends and relatives to come together in the same room for a full day. When you're not keeping up with requests about who they'd rather not sit next to, you're fielding their suggestions on every single detail from the dress through to the jewelry.
And when it comes to opinions, people tend to get fairly combative on the topic of best wedding photographers. There are some that will warn you to increase your budget more for your wedding photographer than for your wedding dress, as a good wedding photographer can make a cheap dress look good. There are others, though, who blindly believe that because everyone, including your Aunt, can operate an iPhone these days, there's no need to invest in a pro. It doesn't take a genius to find that the right approach is probably on neither the 'bankruptcy' nor the 'just wing it' like it's the end of the world. That being said, finding the best wedding photographer in Chennai for your event can still be quite a big task.
Undoubtedly, for one of the most important days of your life, you'll need to turn to the best wedding photographer to capture the most important moment for your life. That's a given. But how to choose a wedding photographer? And how to establish the best relationship with them?
How can you tell whether or not someone is a good photographer?
What makes a 'good' wedding photographer is very subjective, so do your own research. Take time to look through different photographers websites, including their branding, social media, full galleries and if everything looks good, then you have a winner. Also, communicate with your photographer through email or speak and meet with your photographer wherever possible.
Why it is important to spend time with a prospective photographer before the event and what you should be expecting?
It is really important for a photographer to create a rapport with a couple before the wedding. I like to have an actual conversation, in person if possible, if not over the phone. The couple needs to feel comfortable and relaxed, as they're inviting the photographer into one of their most romantic events, into their family, and often also in their home. So, it's vital that everybody feels at ease. Wedding photographers are pretty mobile these days too, so don't rule out a photographer from a different area to your wedding.
