The right picture will immediately take you back to the happiest day of your life! As wedding planners, we know how quickly your wedding is going to fly by for you and your loved ones. Capturing the day in photographs and video is the only way to remember all those beautiful little moments, so don’t underestimate the importance of a professional and experienced wedding photographer.
Here’s what you need to consider in order to choose the right wedding photographer for your Israeli wedding:
Start searching immediately
The first step is to start your search as soon as possible because most of the best wedding professional photographers book their schedules in advance. Especially if you are planning to have your wedding on a Thursday or Friday in the spring or summer you will need to book your wedding photographer in Israel at least live to six months in advance. However, if you are planning your wedding out-ol-season, there is a good chance your chosen photographer will be available with less notice.
Know the “look” that you want
Know your taste and what kind of style you want. Do you want something more traditional, or do you prefer a more light-hearted and playful theme? A great photographer will work with you to achieve your vision. After deciding your look and style, call 3-4 wedding photographers in Israel, and make appointments to interview the candidates in person.
Ask for wedding Photo Samples
Don’t be afraid to ask to see photo samples of weddings your photographer has done. Consider how well they perform in different settings and environments. For example, if you are thinking of a beach wedding, then you have to search for a photographer who is stronger in filming outdoors. Examine the essential things of the pictures like color, clarity, exposure, graininess and composition. Take a close look at the photographer’s ability to capture the emotion of the day. Does he capture the happiest moments of the wedding? Did he capture little spontaneous moments well? Luckily there are many great wedding photographers in Israel to choose from.
Know your budget and formalize everything with a contract
After you select your photographer of choice, discuss pricing, different types of packages, and deliverables. Your wedding planner can help you understand what is customary in Israel and what you should expect. Make sure to have everything written in a signed contract so that there are no surprises on your wedding day.
