Bay Area Wedding Photography Galleries

One of the most important things to look for when viewing wedding photography galleries is the type of portfolio that is posted. Is it a compilation gallery of the photographer's best work or does it properly show a number of pictures from only 1 wedding or event. In my opinion a gallery that shows you the wedding photographers "greatest hits" from the past 10 years tells you nothing about what you might expect to receive if you book a wedding date. Unless you can see how a photographer captures one complete wedding, it will be difficult to understand how they will capture yours. Just about any professional Wedding Photographer in the San Francisco area can get 1 great shot per wedding. Is it luck? Perhaps not, but what IS clear is that seeing up to 20 images from one single wedding gives you a much better idea of how your final images and/or wedding album will look. What kind of posing techniques do the photographer's utilize and how good at choosing backgrounds are they? These questions are much easier answered when looking at an entire wedding. In addition, it gives you more confidence that you wedding photographer can produce multiple great shots and not just 1 "lucky" shot. We have arranged our own wedding galleries to reflect one whole wedding per entry. There are a few exceptions, but for the most part this is how our portfolio samples are arranged. The same goes for portrait portfolios, ideally you would like to see a cross section of work with many different poses and backgrounds.

What to Look for in Portfolio Galleries

In order to make a truly informed decision when comparing Bay Area wedding photographers, its important analyze the presented photos. Here is a summary of some of the things you should look for when making this all important decision:

  • Lighting and Dimension (depth)
