    You can check the following things:

    1) the photographer's style
    2) the price
    3) the personality of the photographer
    4) sufficient equipment & backup to deliver the job
    5) experience(shooting more than 10 weddings etc)
    6) skill of editing, knowledge in photography
    7) freebies that come along with the package

    You can totally check up on each photographer through their online portfolio. You can also inquire what photography style they are experts in doing and see some samples. Maybe they will compliment your own taste.

    Hi all, just a few notes on style:

    I have seen photographers claiming that they have a journalistic style or like to call themselves photojournalistic wedding photographers.

    For anyone who has heard similar phrases, please help yourselves by doing the following 2 things:

    1. Take a second look at their works to see if the people in the pictures ever look into the camera.
    If you see nearly all shots do not have eye contact, the portfolio was probably built from occasions the photographer was a guest at those weddings, which probably means a lack of experience in shooting weddings.

    2. Ask what they mean exactly when they call themselves photojournalistic wedding photographers or have a photojournalistic style.
    I have seen a number of photographers passing off fly-on-the-wall, standing at one corner, taking shots that are natural, un-posed and candid as photojournalism.

    Photojournalism style DOES NOT solely mean fly-on-the-wall, standing at one corner, taking shots that are natural, un-posed and candid.
    The photographer should "appear" outrightly in front of you sometimes to get proper, posed shots. So do ask to see their proper, posed shots.
    Especially so because you need those proper, posed shots of yourselves to answer to your friends, relatives, family after the wedding.

    For me

    Photography style
    Price
    Personality ( Those standoffish ones I dun like. I also dislike people rushing me. So I think have to find someone you r comfortable with)
    Work ethics ( I was a 'sister' for my friend's wedding many years ago, her AD photographer was very late. Late until by the time he arrived, her make up and dressed all done liao, he totally missed the 'make up' session. He din informed her that he would be late. He didn't look apologetic, nor did he offer any apologetic gesture. She was really angry but she endure cos she dun want to spoil her wedding day.)

    Really have to do some research before engaging PG.

    All these are really good tips For me, I think it's important to check out their portfolio first and see if you like their style, and next, whether you can click with the photographer. If you can't, the pg will not be able to bring out the best in the couple and might not get the best photos!

    We go by...
    The Style of Photography (able to capture AD moments, expressions...)
    The Package (price, deliverables etc)
    The Personality of the PG (friendly, accommodating, understanding etc)

    And, am proud to say we have made the right choice! Just got our softcopies and they are great!

    Personality
