Some of these styles include documentary, edgy-bold, portraiture and fine art. The documentary style is one that are real spontaneous pictures that are taken in the course of the event instead of the series of posed photos. The portraiture style is taken by a professional portrait photographer who is focused on making classic moments of the event.The fine art style is another style which is similar to the documentary one but the difference arises in the fact that the shooter in this style has more artistic license.

Additionally, the customers may post their views on social networks so it is worth to utilise Facebook and twitter pages.
Interview the potentials; having conducted a thorough research the client will come up with a list of potentials which will be used to call them or book an interview appointment.

This interview will be useful in knowing the type of style a wedding photographer specialises in, his/her availability and also if not available the type of associate who may take up the job. In this forum the bride and groom will get to assess the potential photographer’s portfolio to get that which looks impressive. The assessment shouldn’t’ be based on what is only seen in several photos, rather it’s advisable for the client to view some few wedding albums. This is because some of the photographers only show best pictures in their gallery and leave the others. During this review all moments of interest that are captured should be carefully analysed.
Personal connection; the photography industry is one that deals with frequent interaction and thus at times it may require an individual who is social. Such an individual will make communication easer thus meeting the client’s expectation. Also this personal mesh between the photographer and client is important as it will dictate how well the two parties relates.
Packages comparison; photography is part of the budget that the bride and the groom are running on. Depending on the type of budget the style and type of shooter also varies. During the interview the question of the packages they offer should be discussed at greater lengths.
