Every wedding, whether big or small, must be documented. For one, the bride would want to always remember her very special day through photos and videos. Secondly, the family of the groom would for sure want to review all the great memories during that big, important day. Thirdly, families would also want to share those special moments and pass on those fun and memorable photos to the next generation. Hence, having or hiring a wedding photographer is a must.
Now if you’re on the lookout for a good professional Hong Kong wedding photographer, here are some helpful tips:
1. Never downplay the power of referrals. It will really help if someone, preferably a friend or a recent bride, will refer a professional Hong Kong wedding photographer to you. It will, of course, mean that they had a good experience with that photographer. This will also be good because you now have someone to ask.
2. Check the wedding photographer’s portfolio. How many weddings has he or she covered? Does he or she work with a team? Does he or she have back-up photographers and do they have enough equipment such as lights, remote flashes, different types of lenses etc? Don’t hesitate to ask if you can look at his or her previous clients’ wedding albums. See if you like his or her style of photography.
3. Ask for a trial photoshoot or better yet, schedule a pre-nuptial wedding photoshoot. This way, you can see if you and your wedding photographer can gel together. You can also see if you like his or her style of wedding photography. Before the photoshoot, you can discuss details such as location, theme (do you want it to be formal or a little funky and fun?), types of clothes to bring along, makeup style and even the time of the photoshoot (do you want to capture the sunrise, sunset or do you want to use natural light all throughout the shoot?). This way, you will already have a feel of how to move and act around your chosen Hong Kong wedding photographer.
These are just some of the tips you may want to consider in hiring a professional wedding photographer in Hong Kong. Just remember that it is, after all, your big wedding day – a very important and special day in your life – so you have all the license to be as picky as you want and need to be.
