This is why we decided to make a list with tricks and tips in order to find the photographer that adapts to your needs and offer you the best service. Have a look!
CHECK OUT THE PORTFOLIO
Before hiring your photographer we recommend you to devote some time to view the online portfolio. Inside you will find the type of photography and style of the photographer. It will be easier for you to imagine the photos you will get by watching the pictures that the photographer already did, and you could select some of your favorite ones and tell him/her to take you that kind of photographs, or on the contrary, to tell him/her which ones you don´t like. Note that each photographer has different styles or preferences. For instance, it would not make sense to hire a photographer experienced in nature for your marriage proposal, or a photographer experienced in architecture for a family photo shoot. Inside every portfolio you could clearly see the experience and professionalism of the photographer, so we recommend to devote time to view his/her work.
CHECK OUT THE OPINIONS ON THE INTERNET
A good thing about the internet is that you can easily find user´s opinions of every commerce, and photography is one of them. In Tripadvisor you could read with total assurance what clients think about a single photographer; if he/she is professional, creative, punctual, etc. So we recommend to read several opinions in these websites before hiring your photographer. If you eventually hire your photographer and he/she makes a great work leave a review so you can help other people to choose the right one.
MAKE SURE HE/SHE SPEAKS YOUR LANGUAGE
A common mistake that many people make when hiring a photographer is not to check out if he/she speaks the same language. Indeed communication is essential in photography. Note that the photographer will have to give you instructions during the session in order get the proper pictures of you. So before hiring him/her we suggest you ask about the languages he/she speaks. This way you guys could understand each other and make a photo shoot fluid and effective.
CHECK OUT HIS/HER AVAILABILITY FOR YOUR DATE
Once you have already selected your photographer the next step is to know if he/she will be available for your dates in Madrid. As usual, the better the photographer is the busier he/she will be. So we suggest to ask him/her in advance so he/she can plan his/her agenda for your holidays in Madrid. This way you will travel quite and safe knowing that your photo shoot is already booked.
