Ottawa has an over abundance of people who claim to be pros in the wedding industry, many even have elaborate web sites that may give the illusion they’re professionals, but it isn’t the fancy flash presentation of a web site you should be concentrating your focus on but the quality of images you’re looking at. Ask to see one or two entire wedding they have shot; look for consistency in their work. It’s easy to choose a couple nice images of a wedding to insert in a portfolio. Look for consistency from beginning to the end. If the photographer has consistent work, then you’ll know choosing 60 to 80 images for your wedding album will be a pleasant experience.
Speaking of which, I would like to think my work is very consistent from beginning to the end. The vast majority of my wedding clients will upgrade to a larger capacity wedding album. Every single client who upgrade all say the same thing: “There are too many nice shots, we just couldn’t narrow it down”.
Also important to note, some will shoot as many as 1500 shots! (yes that’s right, I said one thousand five hundred!) Can you imagine the daunting task of choosing among 1500 images? After all, the content of your wedding album should be anywhere between 30 to 100 images. Remember, it’s not quantity but QUALITY!
