1| Personality

When selecting a Chicago wedding photographer you are selecting more than just a photographer for your wedding day. You are hiring a wedding photographer that will be with you, your family and your group all day on your wedding day. Personality is a huge part of the selection process and should not be overlooked or discounted in any way.

Your Chicago wedding photographer’s personality can set the tone for your entire wedding day and your bridal party. Ultimately it can impact your wedding photography altogether. You will more than likely be working with your wedding photographer for a year, or longer in some cases, by the time you factor in your engagement session and post wedding photography and albums.

2| Price

While price is always a factor when selecting your Chicago wedding photographer, it should not be the only thing that matters. All too often we hear horror stories from brides who made a decision for their wedding photography based purely on price. It turns out to be foolish in the end. When its all said and done, your wedding photography will be all you have to remember your wedding day.

3| Coverage

Something often overlooked when selecting a Chicago wedding photographer is the number of hours that will be offered during the coverage of your Chicago wedding. Typically you will want your wedding photographer to be with you to document all the moments of your wedding day. After all, that’s what you are hiring them for. That being said, typical coverage requirements for your wedding day should be about 8-10 hours.

Be careful here. Some Chicago wedding photographers offer cut-rate prices by offering you less than adequate wedding coverage for your day. These become hidden costs and once you realize it, it’s often too late.

How many Chicago wedding photographers will be at your event? Most events need at least two wedding photographers. This ensures that your wedding photographer is focused on working with your group and directing the day and allows the second wedding photographer to have coverage going on at the same time.

We find that by having two Chicago wedding photographers at your event, your wedding photography needs can best be met all while ensuring that nothing gets missed from your big day.

5| Wedding albums

What will you do with all your images from your wedding photographer? Most people opt to place them in a beautifully designed wedding album that your wedding photographer should provide you with. Don’t underestimate the importance of a wedding album from your wedding day. This is your first family heirloom and your one keepsake you will have forever to remember your Chicago wedding.

When selecting a Chicago wedding photographer you should look for an album that best represents you and your new family. Wedding albums come in all shapes and sizes. Questions you should ask. Your Chicago wedding photographer 1) How many pages come in the wedding album? 2) How many images will be in the wedding album? 3) What cover options are available for my wedding album?

6| Engagement sessions

The day of the wedding is usually a very hectic and rushed with lots of moving parts. Everything needs to be on schedule and the various vendors and venues need you to be in and out at a certain time. In such an atmosphere it is sometimes tough to get a quiet moment in to collect your thoughts and emotions. Pre-wedding sessions or Chicago engagement sessions provide just that, it allows the bride and groom some time together alone to have some fun and get some images in a more relaxed environment. It also gives you a variety of artwork for your home. You don’t want all the pictures in your home to be in your wedding outfits. Ask your Chicago wedding photographer whether they include engagement sessions or is it a separate add-on that will increase your cost.
