Are you getting married in NJ? Who will be your NJ wedding photographer?
Here is a list of some of the things you should consider when looking for NJ wedding photography.
//1 PERSONALITYWhen selecting a wedding photographer you are selecting more than just a photographer for your wedding day. You are hiring a wedding photographer that will be with you, your family and your group 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 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.
//2 WEDDING ALBUMS
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 photographer should provide for you. 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 wedding.
When selecting a wedding photographer you should look for an album that best represents you and your new family. Wedding albums come in all shapes and sizes. Questions you should ask your potential photographer 1) How many pages come in the wedding album? 2) How many images will be in the wedding album? 3) What leather options are available for my wedding album?
While price is always a factor when selecting wedding photography, it should not be the only thing that matters. All too often we hear horror stories from brides who made a decision for their wedding photography based purely on price. It turns out to be foolish in the end. When its all said and done, your wedding photography will be all you have to remember your wedding day.
//4 NUMBER OF PHOTOGRAPHERS
How many 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 photographers at your event, your wedding photography needs can best be met all while ensuring that nothing gets missed from your big day.
Something often overlooked when selecting a NJ wedding photographer is the number of hours that will be offered during the coverage of your NJ 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 NJ 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.
Unfortunately, most couples who are looking for a wedding photographer just assume that the photographer has insurance. We are surrounded by many "weekend warriors" who are popping up by the dozen. While their photos may be nice to look at, many of them are not running a legitimate business and even more are not insured. Almost all venues (The Venetian, The Park Savoy, The Ashford Estate, Mallard Island Yacht Club, to name a few) require their vendors to carry insurance. No one ever wants to think about something unfortunate happening on their special day but by having vendors that have insurance, your special day can be protected from the unexpected. Be sure to ask before signing a contract.
