A professional wedding photographer must be completely versed in the technical side of the Wedding trade, while also remaining both artistic and creative. This combination of personality traits is not usually packaged together. Having great Nikon 🙂 camera and technical photography skills will allow the wedding photographer to capture properly exposed, well lit images regardless of the lighting situation and time constraints they are working under. On the other hand, having a good eye and great creative skills will allow the wedding photographer to approach each shot with a unique perspective and artistic vision ensuring that the wedding shots are not just photos, but photographic art that you will have for ever and ever.

4. EXPERIENCE “PROFESSIONAL OR BEGINNER”
Once you have appraised a photographer’s technical knowledge, style, and personality, the next thing you should be looking for is actual wedding photography experience.

With experience being definitely important, some of the best wedding photographers in san diego and around the world are experienced photographers, but relatively new as wedding photographers. In situations where you love the photographer’s style, but are concerned with them not having enough wedding photography experience being then that only do it as a part time or a second job, make sure to check out their wedding portfolio which should include not only their best images from each type of event they have shot but a complete wedding that they have done.
To help you make sure that the wedding photographer you are hiring is well experience.
