Why EVOKE Photo & Video?
Selecting a Houston Wedding Photographer
ideas from one Houston Wedding Photographer
Congratulations on your engagement and welcome to EVOKE Photography and Video! As a Houston Wedding Photographer for 15 years, I have been asked many times, ”how do I choose the perfect Wedding Photographer?” Or, “how do I make a decision?” Houston has so many Wedding Photographers, and the prices are all over the board, which can make the process very intimidating.
In light of this, I have a bit of advice that will help you select the perfect Wedding Photographer and may save you lots of money. (Note, this advice applies even if you do not choose EVOKE as your Wedding Photographer!)
First, beware of portfolios. As you know, a portfolio shows the best work a Wedding Photographer has ever created throughout their career. For a better representation, ask to see 3 or 4 recent weddings. The more recent the better! You may be surprised at the difference between portfolios and recent work.
Second, insist on viewing all the Wedding Photographer’s images. A handful of “photoshopped” images are not enough to make an informed decision. If the Wedding Photographer captured 1000 images during the wedding, be adamant about viewing them all. Assuming the Wedding Photographer allows you to do so, check for consistency and quality across the entire body of work. Be on the lookout for erratic exposure, focus, and inconsistent lighting. Again, you may be surprised at what you find.
Lastly, come visit us as soon as you can. We are happy to meet with you anytime, Tuesday – Saturday 10-6, and consultations are free. We would be happy to help!
Hopefully this advice will help you select the perfect Wedding Photographer. Your wedding is too important and too expensive to get wrong.
