What to Look for When Viewing Galleries

One of the most important things you can do when looking for a wedding photographer is look through ENTIRE galleries from a wedding. The more you can view from your photographer the better! By viewing full galleries, you’ll have a better idea as to the quality and quantity of photos you can expect. When viewing galleries some things you’ll want to look for are;

Reception Photos

Receptions are often dimly lit, and it’s important that your photographer knows what to do in this situation


These are photos of the bride and groom by themselves. About 90% of the photos we see printed are from the creatives. It’s important to have a wide variety of creatives so that you can have a diverse album and prints for your home.


A staple of most wedding photographers, details are one aspect to the wedding day we have the most control over. As wedding photographers, we can move the dress, rings, shoes, etc. around, change the lighting, and create the overall mood of the image. Details need to be tack sharp, lit well, and creative.

Family Formals

We typically only spend 15 minutes on family photos. Knowing how to position groups, and providing them quick tips so they can look their best is essential to efficient family formals. No one wants to wait an hour and a half between the ceremony and reception, so it’s best to remain efficient.

Grand Exit

Grand exits often take place outside at night and with very little ambient light to help. Being one of the more challenging scenarios, it’s important to see how well the photographer can seize and freeze the moment. For help finding the best grand exit for you, check out our Grand Exit Ideas Blog!
