What To Look For In A Tampa Wedding Photographer

By Cathy Mercer

A couple’s wedding day is a meaningful event that merits being captured in high quality photographs to forever serve as a reminder of this special occasion. Pictures are only as good as the one taking them, so it is essential to hire a gifted photographer. When choosing a Tampa wedding photographer, these key points should be taken into consideration.

A couple must not delay in locating a good photographer as those in demand often book customers a year ahead. It will be necessary to have already set a date in order to reserve a spot with one of these pros. Booking six months ahead is usually fine for weddings which don’t take place on a Saturday in the spring, as this is the busiest time, and usually requires six to twelve months before the date to safely secure a time slot. It’s important to know how big the photography budget is beforehand too.

Finding a respected photographer is usually not hard because they tend to advertise more. It can also be helpful to ask people one knows or others whom have been hired to provide various aspects of the wedding preparations, if they can recommend someone. Professional studios are also usually listed online, and can be consulted as well.

Making a list of several to consider is the first step. Then, the couple needs to research these individually in a number of ways to choose the one which is most suitable. They should have websites with examples of their work people can look at to decide if their quality, style, and price is a good match. If they have references, calling them is a good idea, as is checking out their standing with the Better Business Bureau.

Next the couple must pay each of these possible candidates a personal visit. This interview is the best opportunity for clients to see a wider range of the photographer’s work, they should pay the most attention to that which has been done of weddings. The quality of the prints, photographic mood and style should all be noted.

Some more detailed information about the studio’s experience is useful. Having years of experience in photography is one thing, but more importantly is how long have they been specifically shooting weddings. The customer should ask how long they have been offering wedding services, and how many they have actually photographed.

It’s advisable to also find out which equipment will be used. If film is used, one should make sure the studio only works with professional grade, and if they use digital photography, image should be 8 megapixels or larger. Film is known for producing better enlargements, while digital is readily duplicated and easier to work with. The photographer should bring an assistant to help and have extra equipment in case of a mechanical failure.

When the couple makes their final decision as to which Tampa wedding photographer they wish to hire, the pricing will need to be discussed. A contract must be drawn up which states everything the customer will be paying for, and then both parties will sign in agreement. The process of finding and hiring a photographer will be more successful and easy by remembering these tips.
