Nerves and anxiety kick in. The quest to find the perfect photographer begins, but there are hundreds of options, the Internet is full of professionals and companies offering these services, but their rates are so high that I would probably have to mortgage myself to be able to get married and have great wedding photos.
What should I look for to make sure I hire the best photographer?
My first option comes in!
The first photographer I contacted had a very professional book. She explained different ways to carry out a photo session, she proposed different locations, a private session with my future husband, she would bring a make-up artist and a wardrobe assistant with 5 different outfits. On the day of the event, she would bring along four assistants to help her record the wedding from five different points of view, along with sound editors and a drone, and it was then when I thought… Am I getting married or recording Titanic, The Sequel?
Her rates were out of my budget. When you’re getting married you must prioritize, and I couldn’t spend so much budget on this. Besides, I didn’t want to hire a company, I wanted to hire a trustworthy expert who could do this work for me, a quality job but in a more intimate and reserved way. So, I thought I should look for someone that hadc previoucsly worked for one of my friends or contacts, someone recommended; it’s easier working with someone suggested, it gives you more confidence, so I began my quest.
A friend who was already married told me about Joaquin, a young and talented photographer with a desire to work and do his best. We met to talk about my desires and expectations, and he simply understood while contributing new ideas that gave me peace of mind.
“It is vital to work with a photographer that knows you enough, because he or she should be able to understand you and your partner and capture the best of you as a couple”
We did a first session, near the beach, a natural setting, my boyfriend and I, we laughed, had a good time, and felt so comfortable that on the day of the wedding, it was just a matter of explaining the logistics to him so that he could make the arrangements to be able to record everything and eventually create something that would give us an enormous amount of happiness and gratitude. He took beautiful pictures, on the big day he made sure me and my fiancé weren’t the only protagonists but also included our friends and family in the video, he recorded testimonies from some of them and came up with different dynamics to create material, the result was a success.
Every time we go through our wedding pictures, we realize how lucky we were to find such a reliable person, someone who exceeded our expectations and that is now a part of our contact network. Whenever I meet someone who is looking for a photographer I recommend Joaquin, his work continues to grow and his costumer network keeps expanding, always working with people that recommend him.
This is the satisfaction you get when you work with people who give their best.
