Are you officially engaged? Congratulations! Now it’s time to find the perfect photographer for your engagement photos. Here are some tips to help you find the best vendor for your needs.
Not every couple chooses to have engagement photos taken, but if you have your heart set on sharing news of your engagement with some beautiful photos, then we have some tips to help you find the right photographer for your needs.
Consult with Your Bridal Coordinator
As soon as you get engaged, it’s a good idea to hire a bridal coordinator. Regardless of the size of wedding you plan on having, a bridal coordinator will be an invaluable asset to you during the planning process, and they will help you get everything in order right from the get-go, including hiring a photographer for your engagement photos. Bridal coordinators are experts in the bridal industry and have contacts and recommendations that you won’t find elsewhere. They can help you find someone who is experienced, trustworthy, and that meets your budgetary needs.
Meet with Different Wedding Photographers
If you’re looking for a photographer that specializes in engagement photos, chances are you will come across mostly wedding photographers. This is normal. Even though you might find photographers that specialize in family or baby portraits that also shoot engagements, it doesn’t hurt considering photographers that specialize in weddings only. They know which types of shots to capture, and if you like their work, it’s likely you can use them for your ceremony and reception as well. This gives you a chance to test someone out before you hire them for the actual wedding day.
Go to Bridal Shows and Ask Around
The moment you are engaged, it’s also a good idea to find out about local bridal shows from your local bridal boutiques and vendors. Bridal shows are great places to find and meet vendors, and you’ll have access to a slew of photographer recommendations as well. These events sometimes offer promotions for package deals, too. You might just find the best photographer for your engagement photos at your first bridal show.
