I had a question come to me recently about choosing a good wedding photographer when there aren’t very many to choose from. How do you choose the best photographer when you have only a handful to pick from. In this situation most photographers may look the same, have the same ‘competitive’ pricing and may be desperate for the work. It is important to take things slow. Don’t rush into a deal with a wedding photographer, especially when you only have a few to choose from.
How About A Destination Wedding Photographer?
Have you looked into finding a destination wedding photographer? Even though you may live in a small town like Weiser Idaho, that does not mean you can’t find a photographer would would be willing to travel to you on your special day. Many destination photographers enjoy the experience of new places and the idea of traveling. Some will even do the wedding photography for free as long as you pay their way to you. There are countless numbers of destination wedding photographers out there, but choosing one doesn’t come without risk. Since you don’t know who they are, you have to trust everything you find about them on the Internet. From their past work, past clients and from reviews about their business.
Here Is A List To Help You Choose The Best Wedding Photographer In Idaho
- Look at their website and see their past work. (You can open multiple browsers and compare their work).
- Compare their prices and see what each photographer offers and doesn’t offer.
- Don’t go with the cheapest in order to save money. If you like one photographer over the rest, try to negotiate. Many photographers who work out of small towns may be willing to negotiate their prices or packages.
- How for will each photographer have to travel? If you like a photographer in Boise Idaho but your wedding is in Weiser Idaho (a good hour drive), then will they be willing to drive the distance or be willing to give you a deal.
If you can’t find a good wedding photographer in your location, many photographers love to travel. This might be a good option for you if you found someone you liked in another city. Our friends Kelsey and Kyle love to travel and even though they are wedding photographers in Maple Valley Washington, they don’t mind traveling to other states or location weddings. You can even entice the photographers to be at your wedding if you choose a tropical paradise. Most of these traveling photographers waive their normal fees and just charge their travel expenses. Be sure to ask some of your favorite distant photographers how they handle distant weddings.
