1. Do Your Research

 The first step in choosing an elopement photographer is to do your research.

Look at portfolios and read reviews to get a feel for each photographer’s style and personality.

Make sure you like their work before you even meet with them!

When you are looking at York Maine wedding photographers’ portfolios, be sure to pay attention to the types of shots they take.

Are they the type of photographer who likes to take a lot of posed shots, or do they prefer candid, natural shots?

Also, think about your own personality.

Do you prefer someone who is more laid back and relaxed, or do you want someone who is more high-energy and organized? (I’m a little of both)

2. Ask For Referrals

Another great way to find the perfect elopement photographer is to ask for referrals from friends and family.

Chances are, someone you know has been married recently and has had a great experience with their photographer.

Ask them who they used and what they thought of them.

3. Look At Portfolios

 Once you have a few photographers in mind, it’s time to look at their portfolios in more detail.

Be sure to look at a variety of weddings to get a sense of their style.

Do they have a style that matches what you are looking for?

Also, think about the lighting and scenery in their photos.

Is the photographer a professional Maine wedding photographer with tons of experience?

If not, is that something you are willing to compromise on?

4. Meet With Photographers In Person

 Finally, once you have narrowed it down to a few photographers, it’s time to meet with them in person or over Zoom.

This will give you a chance to get to know them better and see if you click with them.

It’s important that you feel comfortable working with your photographer – after all, you will be spending a lot of time with them on your wedding day!
