Looking for a Las Vegas wedding photographer? The sheer volume of weddings that take place in the region each year means that photographers in Las Vegas may be relatively easy to come by. But choosing the right one for your special day can be a little more difficult! When researching your Las Vegas wedding photographer there are a few things you can do to help create your shortlist. And the best part? You can narrow down your search all from the comfort of your own home. Here’s your guide to quickly and easily finding your perfect photographer in Las Vegas.
Take a look at their wedding photography
In this digital age, viewing a portfolio is often as simple as heading to Instagram or a website. Once there, you can peruse a deluge of gorgeous examples of work in a variety of settings. This strategy is particularly useful if you have not yet decided on the photography style you’d like for your wedding day.

Create a list of questions to ask your potential Las Vegas photographer
Meeting your photographer over the phone, on Skype or in real life gives you a chance to get down to the nitty-gritty. So formulate a list of questions to ask to get a sense of how they work. Some of these questions could include:
Unruly guests, a rouge best man or a runaway flower girl can cause hiccups. You want to feel confident that you are in good hands if the unexpected happens!
Ask about delivery times of your images and what you can expect from the process. This gives you a clearer idea of how each photographer works and if it will work for you.
Have they photographed your venue before? By asking to see photos in your chosen setting, you’ll start to imagine exactly where you’ll be standing, for instance.
Read reviews or contact past clients and ask about their experiences
Again, social media is irreplaceable when it comes to research. So, head to Google to read reviews on business listings or simply hit up Facebook and see what past clients have to say about your potential photographer. Furthermore, it is not uncommon for brides-to-be to contact newlyweds and ask for their first-hand impression of a wedding photographer. Think of it as a word of mouth recommendation that is made a lot easier by technology.
Identify your budget for your Las Vegas photographer and stick to it
Ah, budgets. Perhaps budgets are not your favourite topic when it comes to creating the wedding of your dreams but knowing your price range will make your research a much more seamless process. You can do this by thinking about how many hours you will require your photographer to attend the event and how many images you would like to purchase. By knowing (and sticking to!) a budget you’ll narrow down your list of favourites in no time.
Go with your gut
You probably knew it was the dress for you the moment you looked in the mirror. And, maybe you even knew you had met your true love the instant you saw them…or you certainly knew it by the time you got engaged. Likewise, choosing a wedding photographer, venue or bridal party is a similar experience. So do as much research as you like, but at the end of the day you have to trust what your gut tells you.
Once you have narrowed down your list of wedding photographers, you can begin the process of comparing contracts, prices and pros and cons.
