Find Miami, Naples and Fort Lauderdale Wedding Photographers

Apr 8, 2008
You have the perfect dress, the reception center, the church and the food taken care of, but now you've got to find a great wedding photographer. And, since pictures last forever, this is an important decision. Here are some qualifications to look for as you sort through all the Miami, Naples and Fort Lauderdale wedding photographers who are vying for the opportunity to photograph your big day.

Photographer Qualifications

Portfolio
Every photographer you consider hiring should provide their clients with an extensive portfolio that show cases their work. If one picture is worth a thousand words, then a whole stack of them should make a powerful impact when you are trying to sort through your options. As you look through portfolios, pay attentions to details like lighting, framing, image clarity, common poses and photographic style. If you can focus on these details, you will be more likely to judge the photographer's skill rather than how attractive their clients have been.

Publications
Ask potential photographers if their work has been published in any in bridal magazines, shops and other venues. If their work is well-known, you can rest assured that they are capable of capturing your wedding photos.

Training
Some people may be able to become accomplished photographers through diligent reading, experimentation and practice, but training can make a huge difference in a photographer's skill. Look for notes on their certification, training and experience when you visit a studio or a website.

Personality
Every personality is different so it is impossible to recommend a cookie cutter mold that you should look for. But, it is essential that you get along well with your photographer. If they are going to be hired to catch you looking your best, you will need to feel at ease around them. Hopefully, he or she is also very good at making you laugh and smile.

Flexibility
Since a wedding is typically meant to be your day, your way, it may be important for you to find a photographer who is flexible as far as style, travel and poses are concerned. If you have preconceived notions about the kind of pictures you want, share them with a photographer and ask them if they feel willing and able to meet your criteria.

Price
And, as sad as it may be, price may be another determining factor as you select a wedding photographer. The more famous a photographer has become, the more in demand they will be. And this will be reflected in the price. If there is any event worth splurging on as far as pictures are concerned, a wedding has got to be at the top of the list.
