What Is The Best Way To Search For A Wedding Photographer?
There are lots of different sources to search for photographers.
Here are some examples.
*Wedding Blogs 
*Asking a friend who got married recently about her photographers' contact details. (Sometimes they are not willing to share it)
*Google and Social Media Search (It may take a long time)
*Online Service Providers where you can post your project & budget and have professionals bid for it. (Avoid posting too low of a budget). Remember you are paying for photographer’s experience and expertise. Weddings are once in a lifetime events, with too low of a budget you will not reach the photographers with the proper skill.
*Stay away from “One stop shop” Wedding Vendors, like entertainment companies who also provide catering, photography but don’t give you photographer’s info.
*The same thing is true with large studios that contract out weddings (I cannot stress this enough!) Always have a direct relationship with your photographer before the wedding.
At the end of the day, the most important thing is finding the photographer you click with. Chances are you are going to spend more time with your wedding photographer than with your maid of honor on your wedding day, so you want to make sure you like them.
Always be sure to at least interview several photographers.
Whatever the search method you choose, narrow down photographers whose work you like, and also whose philosophy that resonates with you.
It is important to set up an in-person meeting or a phone call, facetime or a Skype session. Then you can determine if you like them.
