Congratulations on your engagement and welcome to Santa Barbara Wedding Photography and Videography!
As a Santa Barbara Wedding Photographer for 8 years, I have been asked many times, ”how do I choose the perfect Wedding Photographer?” Or, “how do I make a decision?” Santa Barbara has so many Wedding Photographers, and the prices are all over the board, which can make the process very intimidating. I have a bit of advice that will help you select the perfect Wedding Photographer in Santa Barbara and may save you lots of money.
Beware of portfolios!
As you know, a portfolio shows the best work a Wedding Photographer has ever created throughout their career. Ask to see 3 or 4 recent weddings for better representation. The more recent weddings the better! You may be surprised at the difference between portfolios and recent work.
Ask to view all the Wedding Photographer’s images!
A handful of 'photoshopped' images are not enough to make an informed decision when chosing Santa Barbara Wedding Photographer. If the Wedding Photographer captured 1500 images during the wedding, be adamant about viewing at least some of them. Assuming the Wedding Photographer allows you to do so, check for consistency and quality across all the photos. Look for erratic exposure, focus, and inconsistent lighting. Again, you may be surprised at what you find.
Lastly, come visit us as soon as you can. We are happy to meet with you anytime and consultations are free. We would be happy to help!
Hopefully this advice will help you select the perfect Wedding Photographer in Santa Barbara.
