Q. What should I look for when searching for photographers?
I would say 3 things: Experience - Personality - Flexibility. You want to make sure that the person you are choosing has the experience, your wedding shouldn't be their first one ever. When someone lacks experience it's harder for them to troubleshoot at a moment's notice or help you make the best decisions on your day. Personality is HUGE because you will be spending A LOT of time with this person. You have to make sure that you get along and you're on the same level. If you don't like them as a person it's not going to be a fun day for anyone and that will show in your images. Flexibility, weddings have so many moving parts that one aspect can affect the entire day. The best man is late, the flowers haven't come yet, maybe catering needs more time. Timelines fall apart often and you need someone that can stay cool and aid in the situation rather than add to the stress.
