I saw a few full sets of weddings that my photographer shot. I saw my photographer on a lot of blogs and always loved her work. When I met with her, it sealed the deal. She was so sweet and personable. I’m thrilled with our wedding photos. Out of 1200, I have 700 that I just LOVE and are my favorites! Very hard when picking out photos for an album and the walls.

Online, it’s just the best of the best photos. A photographer should have at least 100 good shots at each wedding. Maybe your photographer has an online slideshow of a wedding that he/she can show you that includes 100-200 photos? It’s definatley something for you to check out and not someone else because it’s such a personal choice. 

Good luck!!

Why can’t you view digital portfolios? I don’t think there’s much point in seeing the prints when you should have access to much, much more digitally. Have you seen a complete wedding shot by your photog? That’s really important.

For me? VERY important. See photos of their latest weddings too.

Portfolios are good in the sense that you get a feel of their style, but out of the hundreds of weddings they shoot, only a handful goes in there. you NEED to see the latest weddings as well to see if they ARE consistent.

A blog (thats updated) is a good indication on work/style. When we blog a wedding it includes quiet a bit of photos, many more than whats in the gallery. You can always ask to see a gallery of a whole wedding.

I just had a look at their website, and their photos are very good. I don’t think you need to see their physical portfolio. My suggestion is this.. have a chat to them over the phone about their work. See if you feel comfortable with them. Ask them things such as what usually happens during the day, how are they with requests, etc. And if you think you guys have a good connection, go for it!

@ourwedding_july2013:  When it comes to  numbers of photos shown it’s usually blog posts – albums – and then online proofing galleries from least to greatest amount.  I don’t know of any photographer who shoots digitially who does not use an online proofing gallery.  Those galleries contain all of the edited photos from an event.  Photographers usually password protect them for the privacy of their clients, but most wouldn’t object to sending one or two if you were having a hard time deciding.

I didn’t meet my photographer until the day of the wedding. We talked a lot in email and I was on her blog site, website and facebook constantly checking out new weddings she had done but really that’s all I needed. As long as you’ve seen more than a few weddings from them I think it’s not that important to meet in person to see the same photos again. Now if you want to meet them and see how you connect and how their personality is… I understand that. =)
