Things You Should Look in a Cairns Wedding Photographer

Your wedding photographer is one of the most important people in your wedding party as his job will decide how you are going to remember this special day for the rest of your life. You want a photographer who captures every moment that is unique and special. Caring only a few things will help you make sure that you find the best photographer in Cairns for your wedding.

Arranging interviews

You can not go with just looks- you must meet your potential photographer. Start by looking at their website, and if you like what is in front of you, ask if the photographer will be available on the date of your wedding, and then call for an interview. You should interview at least 3 to 5 photographers, see their works, understand their style and check whether your personality goes together well. You can also check out their websites such as to see their portfolios. 

Is your photographer asking you enough questions?

Unless your photographer understands the event, your needs and what you expect from the job, how can you even think that he will do the job the way you want? A professional wedding photographer will ask you many questions, right from where you are planning to do the wedding to the number of events, the type of photography you want, moments that you want to be captured and so on.

Do not go with just his portfolio

A photographer will show you only the best work in the portfolio- and you can never make a choice just based on that. It will not give you a very accurate idea of his work. You have to ask for at least 2 to 3 full-length album from real weddings that they shot and no one else in the company. This will help you to get a more accurate idea of how your photo will look like after the big day.

Questions to Ask Your Wedding Photographer

The wedding date is set! Already, the excitement is building for your big day. You want amazing wedding photos. But the challenge feels daunting. You know your family shutterbug Uncle Ned is not who you had in mind. Chances are you have never hired a photographer before. So where do you start? You know you want to interview candidates, but what will you ask them? Here are some great helpful tips to keep in mind before booking your wedding photographer.

1. Are you full-time? When did you start shooting full-time?

The truth is most wedding photography operations are very fly by night. Photographers make their photography part-time with negligible photography experience. Do you believe your once-in-a-lifetime event should be on-the-job training for your photographer? I do not think so. Full-time photographers have made quite a lifetime investment of their energy, time and money to make valued and trusted services. 

2. Why would you like to photograph weddings?

These questions help you to measure the photographer as a person and artist. Take stock of one's spirit and energy. Does he/she seem enthusiastic or kind of flat? People who love what they do have a tendency to be very good at what they do and work with them is always more fun and enjoyable.

Also, knowing a little about what makes the person tick is a good way to feel out what kind of a personality you may share with the photographer. After all, you will spend the whole day with your photographer, so do what you can to make sure the person you choose will be really happy to be there throughout the day.
