Finding the perfect photographer for your vow renewal can be a challenging task. You want to find someone who has both the skill and creative style that will help you capture this very special occasion just as you imagine. Today, most photographers have online portfolios that you can browse to get an idea if their style is what you are looking for. They may also offer reviews and references from previous clients online. Depending on the level of formality of your vow renewal and your budget, you may want to go with a well-known photographer or opt for an up and coming one. To find new creative talent, check with your local community colleges and universities for names of students to contact. You will want to make sure that you discuss how they price their services including their photographer’s fee, prices of prints, and if they offer digital files that you can print yourself or use online. Make sure you discuss having them capture plenty of candid photos at the reception! They are often the best and most favorite photos later on. In fact, you may want to opt for a professional photographer for the ceremony and posed shots and a student to stay late at the reception to capture the fun once the party really gets going.
