On the topic of choosing a photographer for a wedding, I already wrote in general terms in this material... The topic is actually important, so here I will describe the process in more detail.
Naturally, every couple before the wedding asks themselves the question: "How to choose a good wedding photographer?" Everyone wants to keep the memories of this day in the best possible way. The next step is the actual selection process. There are several ways to do this. I will describe the main 3 scenarios, their disadvantages and advantages.
1) Choose by portfolio
To do this, you need to go to the Internet (google, yandex, vkontakte) and browse the sites of photographers, first of all entering the portfolio section, and only then finding out the prices. By the way, when viewing a portfolio, pay attention to the diversity of photographs (so that they are taken in different places, shooting conditions, surroundings).
So, we make a list of photographers, call and clarify whether the photographer is free for this date and how much his services cost. An important point: when you ask about the cost of services, immediately say how much the photographer will have to be at your wedding and what he will need to photograph. Sraztsu specifically answer the question "how much does your wedding cost?" without specifying the duration of filming is impossible.
This is actually the most correct option. Thus, first of all, you will evaluate the quality of work, and only then you will choose the optimal price / quality ratio.
2) Choose by price
The beginning of the search for a photographer coincides with the previous option: we go to the Internet and look at various sites of photographers. The only difference is that with this approach, attention is first looked at the price, and then at the portfolio. Advertising on the Internet is replete with messages "wedding shooting 1500 UAH for the whole day" or "wedding photo and video 2000 UAH 14 hours of shooting."
In fact, the choice is not in quality, but in price does not lead to anything good. You need to understand that good work costs money. If you're on a tight budget, it's better to order a good photographer for half a day or a few hours than ordering a bad one for the whole day. After all, a relative may be filming the rest of the day. But in the registry office and on a photo walk you will get gorgeous photos.

3) Choose by acquaintances
The option is actually more risky than it seems. The recommendation of acquaintances, in theory, should ensure that this specialist is already proven and can be trusted. In this case, you will rely on the opinion and taste of your friends, which may not coincide with yours. You need to get acquainted with the portfolio of the person whom you are recommended and look at other photographers in any case.
