What to Look for When Hiring a Wedding Photographer

Your wedding is going to be one of the most memorable events of your life – and planning your wedding will no doubt be one of the most stressful. Even relatively small weddings have lots of moving parts that have to work together in order to make a wedding a success. Since hiring a professional wedding photographer is one of those moving parts and something that you don’t do every day, Bella Luca Photography would like to offer a few tips on what you should look for when hiring a professional wedding photographer.

In addition to closely reviewing a photographer’s portfolio to make sure that you’re a fan of the photographer’s style, you should also consider:

Access – how easy is it to communicate with your professional wedding photographer? Are phone calls and emails answered, or does communication seem slow and choppy? Bella Luca Photography works diligently to make every client feel like our only client – which is why we promptly respond to any questions and concerns that you might have leading up to and on your wedding day.

Regional Familiarity – how well does your photographer know the local area? Hiring a local comes in handy for more than just making sure that your photographer doesn’t get lost on the way to your venue, it’s also a good way to get some truly unique wedding portraits. A local photographer will know all the best hideaways off the beaten path to serve as backdrops for beautifully stunning portraits of the bride and groom. Bella Luca Photography has worked for clients all over the United States – but Memphis, TN is our home and we’ve spent years exploring the potential backdrops that exist in and around the greater Memphis area.

Teamwork – two heads, they say, are better than one. Bella Luca Photography is a husband and wife team that gives clients two experienced and professional wedding photographers for the price of one. We can work together or split up and photograph from two different angles as the circumstances dictate. Clients usually enjoy having two photographers around because it allows the client the chance to ask questions and communicate with the photography team without interrupting the flow of photographs being taken.

These are just a few attributes that you can consider as you shop around for a professional wedding photographer. Ultimately, you’ll want to choose a photographer who’s easy to work with and who will listen to your input.

Bella Luca Photography has been professionally photographing weddings since 2000. We’re a family owned photography business that would be honored to photograph your wedding and wedding portraits as you begin to build a family of your own. We carry all of our own equipment and you won’t have to lift a finger to help us setup.

When you decide that you want to hire a professional wedding photographer that’s accessible, familiar with the local Memphis area, and that comes as a pair for the price of one – then contact us today or browse our online portfolio at BellaLucaPhotography.com.
