How To Choose a Wedding Photographer?

Finding perfect wedding photographer is never an easy task. After the cake is cutted, first dance finished and flowers wilted, only your photos will remain and keep your memories from being forgotten. We asked Rebecca Hansson, a wedding photographer, to share her advice for wonderful wedding imagery and answer some of the most common questions.

Rebecca, how would you describe your style of wedding photography?

Once you choose your wedding photographer, it is very important that you love the photographer’s style and you understand each other. This is, after all, a person that will capture the most important moments of your special day and therefore it is important that you have good collaboration. My advice is to look through various photographers’ portfolios to see what suits you in terms of style and finally get to know each other. You can use social media as a tool to get more insights and information.

I would describe my style as emotional, calm, with soft lighting and  pastel shading. When I say calm, I mean that I always opt for cluttered backgrounds and fully focus on my wedding couples. The wedding day is emotion, there is laughter, tears, anxiety, flashbacks. That’s what I want to capture in my pictures highlighting the relationships between people.

What is your favorite part of the wedding day?

Wow, I have so many favorite parts of the wedding day. There is always something special to capture when the bride getting ready and feel emotions and the nervousness is in the air. If I have to choose just one moment, it would be the moment when the bride and groom are seeing each other for the first time. It takes my breath away every single time!

How far in advance do we need to book our photographer?

The earlier the better. Majority of bookings are made approximately a  year before the wedding day.

What is included in the wedding package?

It may differ from photographer to photographer. This is where you need to speak together  with your partner  and think about what you want. You can choose to have photos that require a lot of editing or rather opt for the images capturing the whole day in a documentary way. It is important that you ask for a photo book example. If you find some photos that are not included in your package, but you still want to have the, you can buy them afterwards. Do not hesitate to speak with your photographer about that.

I have chosen to set an hourly rate and then included all of the photos that I take during the specific time. To tell the story of your wedding is important to me so I decided to try to capture as many important moments as possible instead of focusing on photo albums. Printed version is always available and you can purchase it additionally after your wedding day.

How many hours do we get?

My wedding package starts with 5 hours and goes up to the whole wedding day.

How many pictures will we get?

I can offer packages that include approximately 70 frames per hour.

Can I give you a list of specific moments  that we would like to have captured?

Absolutely, I always discuss with my couples which images are important for them. Sometimes it can be hard to capture every single happening as it is so many things that are going around on your wedding day. However, I always give my best to preserve couples’ memories.

If you request photos that does not fit into my style, I am afraid I need to say no to it.  There is always somebody who specialise in that kind of style and might be more suitable for you.
