Are you getting married in Rhode Island? Who will be your RI wedding photographer?
Here is a list of some of the things you should consider when looking for an RI wedding photographer.
When selecting an RI wedding photographer, you are selecting more than just someone to take a few pictures on your wedding day. You're hiring a wedding photographer that will be with you, your family, and your friends, all day on your wedding day. Personality is a huge part of the selection process and should not be overlooked or discounted in any way.
Your RI wedding photographer’s personality can set the tone for your entire wedding day and your bridal party. Ultimately it can impact your wedding photography altogether. You will more than likely be working with your wedding photographer for a year, or longer in some cases, by the time you factor in your engagement session and post wedding photography and albums.
While price is always a factor when selecting your RI wedding photographer, it should not be the only thing that matters. All too often we hear stories about brides who chose their wedding photographer based purely on price. It turns out to be a mistake in the end. When its all said and done, your wedding photography will be all you have to remember your wedding day.
Is a photographer offering a lot for a "budget" or "discount" price? Where are other photographers cutting corners? Are they professional, or merely a hobbyist? Will their albums last? Is their equipment reliable? Are they backing up your images off site? A photographer's prices even affect whether they can afford to maintain their vehicle and make it to your wedding.
What will you do with all your images from your wedding photographer? Most people opt to place them in a beautifully designed wedding album that your wedding photographer should provide you with. Don’t underestimate the importance of a wedding album from your wedding day. This is your first family heirloom and your one keepsake you will have forever to remember your RI wedding.
When selecting a RI wedding photographer you should look for an album that best represents you and your new family. Wedding albums come in many shapes and sizes. Questions you should ask your RI wedding photographer: How many pages come in the wedding album? How many images will be in the wedding album? What cover options are available for my wedding album?
Something often overlooked when selecting a RI wedding photographer is the number of hours that will be offered during the coverage of your RI wedding. Typically you will want your wedding photographer to be with you to document all the moments of your wedding day. After all, that’s what you are hiring them for. That being said, typical coverage requirements for your wedding day should be about 8-10 hours.
Be careful here. Some RI wedding photographers offer cut-rate prices by offering you less than adequate wedding coverage for your day. These become hidden costs and once you realize it, it’s often too late.
How many RI wedding photographers will be at your event? Most events need at least two wedding photographers. This ensures that your wedding photographer is focused on working with your group and directing the day and allows the second wedding photographer to have coverage going on at the same time.
We find that by having two RI wedding photographers at your event, your wedding photography needs can best be met all while ensuring that nothing gets missed from your big day.
