After becoming engaged, the planning begins. There are flowers to order, dresses to buy, invitations to mail, rings to have sized, and the photographer to hire. The photography for your wedding needs to be performed by a professional that will provide you with a beautiful finished product, something you can enjoy for the rest of your life. Although you will find hundreds of options in your area, just because a photographer has a listing in the phonebook does not necessarily make them a qualified photographer. Not only is this a big investment from a financial standpoint, but also from a position of memory. Your photographs are what will capture the most important day of your life and you want them done right.

Probably the most important thing you can do is plan well in advance. If you are not sure where to start, ask family and friends or recently married co-workers for references. If possible, look at their photographs to see if you like how the job was handled. Once you have a list of several photographers, set up time to meet with each one to get better ideas relating to style, cost, and availability. When you sit down with each photographer, ask him or her ahead of time to bring several wedding samples of their work to the interview. This will show you firsthand the level of their skill and if their style matches your expectations.

You will want to create a checklist of everything you want captured at your wedding. Although professional photographers are experienced and know what to capture, sometimes the bride and groom will want something out of the ordinary. Therefore, if there is something special to you, make sure you discuss it with the photographer beforehand. For example, perhaps there is a special friend flying in from another country and you want to make sure there are several pictures of you and that friend. Maybe this is a second marriage in a blended family situation and you want to have something special done with the kids.

Once you have made your selection and discussed your checklist with the photographer, you need to make sure the contract includes what you have discussed and that it is signed by both parties. Unfortunately, there are times when couples run into problems primarily because they did not get things in writing and the contract was never executed. This is your wedding and a business deal. It is your responsibility to make sure it is handled in a business fashion. If the photographer does not want to write all of the details or refuses to work with a contract, go elsewhere.

Finally, make sure you know exactly what the price includes. Some photographers will give you a great bargain for photographing the wedding and a nice little leather proof book. You walk away thinking you have been provided with an exceptional value but once the wedding is over and the photograph ordering begins, you discover there is an additional price for the album, which is quite costly. Remember, you can always negotiate. If you believe something is a little high, come right out and ask the photographer if they can give you a better offer. They want your business and more than likely will work with you to ensure you are both satisfied.
