When it comes to hiring a photographer, be sure to make your decision sooner as opposed to later. A good photographer is essential to capturing your wedding day. If you've heard the expression, "You can only make one first impression," then you can understand the need for excellent pictures. When you interview potential photographers, be sure to ask for examples from previous weddings. Certain photographers usually specialize in one type of photography.
If you want someone who isn't going to get in the way of you or your guests - then you should look for a photographer who specializes in photojournalism. These photographers are most likely to make cxreative use of the architecture and surroundings at your wedding and reception locations. They are very skilled at using outdoor lighting - sun, clouds, rain - to their advantage and making the most of any opportunity they see.
On the opposite end of the spectrum, if you want group photos with all of your immediate family, your extended family, your sorority sisters from college, your husband's fraternity brothers, your best friends from childhood...AND a picture of you with each one of them...individually...in the time span of an hour...then you really need to find a photographer who specializes in portraiture. These photographers can bring backdrops, lighting and can get family members in-and-out in a flash (no pun intended...ok, well, maybe it was).
