Where does one start when searching for the best South Florida Wedding Photographers to choose from to capture a wedding day?

When searching for the “Best South Florida Wedding Photographers”, you should first consider what, “Best” means to you personally. Photography is an art form, and is very subjective. What someone else loves to see or moves them might not be to your liking or taste. Wedding photographers also vary greatly on specific styles and approaches to capturing a wedding day.

Wedding Photographers may also be strong in certain areas such as posing, editing, lighting or composition, but weak in others. So looking to see “Who are the best South Florida Wedding Photographers”, might have you chasing your tail. Your approach to finding a wedding photographer is to find Who will be the best wedding photographer for your wedding?”. Finding the best wedding photographer for your wedding is more important than trying to find the best Wedding Photographer. Start by looking at websites for styles and more importantly consistency. Here are some things to look for when searching for the best wedding photographer for your wedding.

Your wedding photography budget – How much are you ready to invest for the best South Florida Wedding Photographer?

Your wedding photography budget plays a big role in which wedding photographer you will invest in capturing your wedding day. Wedding Photographers range in price from several hundred dollars to several thousand dollars. One saying that truly applies to wedding photography is, “You get what you pay for”, holds true in the wedding photography industry.

Never hire a South Florida Wedding Photographer or any wedding photographer from places like craigslist, Gigmasters, or Thumbtack. People that advertise on these sites are typically just starting out or don’t have the professional equipment to handle a wedding. A wedding photographer can’t afford to have a website and properly market themselves most likely don’t possess the skills, experience and equipment to properly photograph a wedding day. Many couples find themselves at a loss and disappointed when they choose to become frugal on wedding photography. Again, I have met couples who did hire the supposed, “Best South Florida Wedding Photographers”, and hated every image.

I once spoke to a woman who was convinced she should hire a wedding photography studio very popular in Fort Lauderdale Florida. She explained that she wasn’t prepared to purchase a $2,000.00 album in order to receive her wedding day images. Unfortunately, she was left with no choice and after several months of saving received her photos. When discussing her experience sh recalls being very disappointed that every image was staged, posed and unnatural. What she was looking for a more photojournalistic style of wedding photography, but because of this studios popularity she was convinced to hire them. You should expect a professional wedding photographer to charge anywhere from $1,800 – $4,000 for 4 to 10 hours of coverage.

Searching for your Wedding Photographer! – How do I find a “Best South Florida Wedding Photographer” for me?

Looking for a wedding photographer can be very confusing! There are so many places to look, so which is the best. Speaking to friends and family to see who they recommend is a good start. Search the web as well, The Knot.com and Weddingwire.com can be great resources, but keep in mind vendors pay for placement. Some vendors can invest hundreds of dollars to list at the top of searches, leading you to think they are top rate vendors when they aren’t, leading to disappointment and headaches. Keep in mind vendors can game the system with fake reviews misleading you as well. Remember to research any potential photographers thoroughly. Check their websites, Facebook, Instagram, Google +, Pinterest, and in Google searches for any negative press.

The Bad ones – Be Cautious

One of the most notorious Wedding Photography studios in South Florida is Hitchmeweddings.com. They may be operating under another business name and stole thousands of dollars from couples without providing any images. I blogged about them when I accidentally came across them on the web. Click here for the blog post. Meet with your chosen wedding photographer and ask to see prints and photo albums. Look for consistency and look for complete wedding galleries on a photographers website. Consider if a photographer only has to show his best photos, this doesn’t show consistency.

You want a wedding photographer that can handle various scenarios and lighting conditions. You also want to see what he or she looks to capture during your wedding day. More importantly, can they have the skill, experience, knowledge and equipment to capture a wedding, your wedding!
