Understand your Preferred Style of Photography 


Before hiring a photographer, we recommend that you take the time to understand what style of photography would suit your individual needs. Considering that your wedding will be a once-in-a-lifetime event, it's essential to understand the types of photos you would like. If you aren't sure where to start, platforms such as Pinterest have many wedding collections that you can look at. Here are 593 pins for Indian Wedding photo ideas. In addition to platforms such as Pinterest, you can also take a look at other visual platforms such as Instagram or browse a few wedding blogs for some additional inspiration. 


Take the time to browse photographers portfolios 


Once you know what type of service you want, it's time to find the best photographer for your needs. The optimal approach is to look at online portfolios for photographers you are interested in working with. In addition to this, you should also factor other variables such as location and cost to find what makes sense. Once you filter down your options, take the time to contact the photographers to decide which choice is best. Always remember, however, to take the time to browse the photographer's online portfolio (specifically for wedding photos). If a photographer's portfolio is not accessible to you, you can always contact them directly to ask for their previous work. Also, make sure to better understand the services the individual or agency you are planning to work with offer. Most common photography services include:





Plan ahead of time 


There is no doubt that weddings are huge events that require a lot of logistical planning. When it comes to hiring an Indian wedding photographer, make sure that you book as soon as possible. By booking in advance, you can ensure that the photographer has time to accommodate you. Ultimately, being proactive about your wedding plan is critical in ensuring that your Indian wedding is a success.


Communicate with your Photographer or Agency


When looking for an Indian wedding photographer, it is key that you are able to freely express your ideas and thoughts. At the end of the day, you have the vision, but the photographer is the one that paints the picture. Having said that, be sure to take the time to establish a means of communication with your photographer. Effective ways to do this include:



Although this might seem like a strenuous process, it is an excellent way to help you get comfortable in front of the camera during your wedding day. After all, the more comfortable you are, the more natural your photos will turn out.


Think long-term 


The reality is, the right wedding photographer will not just deliver to you a gallery of photos after your wedding day. Instead, you may find yourself working with your chosen photographer for about your first two years of marriage as you embark on a life-changing journey with your significant other. With that being said, it is important to think long-term and hire a photographer who delivers the best customer service to you. Some factors to be on the look out for include:
