-- Upland, CA - The old adage goes "a picture is worth a 1000 words." This is very true when it comes to wedding photos. It is important to find a photographer experienced with weddings in order to ensure that the photos from your big day speak the right words. How do you choose a wedding photographer?
The key is to find a professional whose work you like. You only get one chance to photograph your wedding. The first step is to review the portfolios of potential photographers. There are a few different ways to go about this:
Phone Books: The traditional method of contacting local listed photographers, followed by scheduling appointments to see their portfolios.
Search Engines: Modern method of using Google, Bing or Yahoo, etc., which offer traditional and image search options, so that you can visit individual photography sites or the respective search engine's image galleries.
Angie's List: For a small fee, consumers can search the review site, which may or may not include images, but includes feedback on listed businesses.
Yelp: Another popular review site, which sometimes includes images and feedback from previous customers.
Craig's List: A user-friendly website dedicated to providing listings from businesses in your area, that occasionally include images or links to websites.
A newer method which includes portfolios from the best, pre-approved local businesses, such as photographers, in easy to use image galleries.
Once you have reviewed portfolios, you can choose the photographer whose work you like best and finalize the details. You can rest assured that your photographer will truly capture the moments from your big day. And last, but not least, the memories of your wedding day will live on through the photographs.
