5 Tips for Finding the Right Event Photographer for Your Needs

No matter what your event is, you want to hire the right event photographer to perfectly capture the special day. However, if you have never hired one before you may not have the first idea of what you should be looking for. Keep reading to discover five tips that can help you find the right photographer. Then contact Neue Focus at (424) 303-1351 to learn more about our services.

1. Pay Attention to Their Style

You should look at the quality of a photographer’s photos, but more importantly you should consider their style. Do they do artistic photos? Do they remind you of photojournalists? Or do they do posed, formal photos? While a good photographer can tailor their services to your needs, it is also true that their core style is likely to come through.

2. Take the Time to Get to Know Their Personality

You are going to have this photographer around during the event. You do not want to hire someone you do not feel comfortable around or who does not feel comfortable around people. You want to hire a photographer who makes you feel at ease if you need to ask questions or make specific requests.

3. Don’t Be Afraid to Ask Questions

Before you hire a photographer, make sure you have asked them any questions you have. This may include whether or not they will be working alone or with an associate, if they have backup equipment, how many events they shot last year, if this is their full-time job, and if they are a member of any professional associations. It is okay to work to get to know the full backstory of your photographer.

4. Talk about the Fine Print

You should have a photographer who is licensed and insured if appropriate. Ask them who will own the copyrights for your photos. Get answers to any questions about payment schedules, rescheduling, refunds, cancellations, etc. There is no detail too small.

5. Work with a Photographer Who Also Asks Questions

They should have plenty of questions for you as well. They should want to know what your vision is, what the timeline is, and all the details about your event. They should discuss price, value, and details of what they can offer you. They should ask questions that make you believe they are trying to really uncover what you are looking for.
