1 . What’s your photographic style?
When you are commissioning a photographer that person will photograph your wedding in his or her own style. Be sure to have an understanding of that photographer’s work so that their portfolio aligns with your aesthetic. While Severin Photography focuses on timeless and photojournalistic photography, our experience and fashion photography assignments definitely influence our work. If photographic style is important to you, be sure that the photographer practices this style.
Now, if you think, well, Martine, I don’t know what style I like. My response to you is to trust yourself. If you love your photographer’s images then most likely that’s the style you want.
2. Please show me two to three full wedding galleries?
Wedding photography takes skill, expertise and experience. Having a nice camera does not make a wedding photographer. Seasoned wedding photographers train for years, attend workshops to continue to sharpen our technical skills, and assist seasoned photographers so before taking up a camera.
A full wedding should have images that are well-composed and well-lit, despite lighting situations. That wedding should include artistic images as well as photos you expect to see at a wedding, such as family formals, candids and photos of the ceremony. So, if you plan on having a photographer to be at your wedding from the getting-ready to the night-time dancing fun, be sure that your photographer has work that will reflect this.
