The island of Maui is a magical destination where dreams are made and memories are born. If you are planning on having your big day there, you need to hire the perfect Maui wedding photographer. This is a big decision and one that you need to carefully consider before you make up your mind. The following information should help you decide.
You will most likely be booking the person in advance before you arrive. So your first place of research will be on the Internet. All the top people will have an online portfolio. Do not choose to work with someone who does not. The portfolio will show you what they can do with the camera.
Once you have viewed the various examples of work on the Internet and found someone you like, it is time to make contact. Be sure to talk to this person over the phone. Have your pen and paper ready as well. Ask them about their favorite locations to take pictures and what they would recommend for your style of wedding. Once you have this information, research these places yourself to see which ones you really like.
Investigate testimonials. Most websites will have listing from satisfied customers. If they do not, then note the name of the artist and do your own research online. Type their name into a search engine and if there are some negative reviews of their work, you are sure to find them.
Your next concern is price. People that are offering their services for a dramatically lower price than the competition should be approached with caution. Just why are they doing this? This could be because they are inexperienced behind a camera or maybe just enthusiastic newcomers to photography. This can possibly produce poor results. Find someone whose work you admire and whose cost is in the upper-middle price range.
Talk to the artist and ask them if they are willing to turn up to the wedding early. This way you can get to know the person and they can also take some picture of you getting ready for the ceremony. Photography is a personal experience and the more comfortable you feel, the better the end result will be.
Your opinion matters. Offer suggestions on location and combination of guests. If you are uneasy or do not like what they are doing, be sure to let them know. They want to make you as happy as possible and if you do not offer input, they will have no idea if they are doing the right thing.
Relaxation is important. This is why the artist should be more than the person taking your photographs; he or she should also be your friend. The more relaxed and comfortable you feel, the more the camera has to catch and the better then end result will be. Your Maui wedding photographer can help you capture your unforgettable day with unimaginable style.
