Los Angeles Wedding Photographers: How to Find the Right Wedding Photographer in Los Angeles to Capture Your Special Day

There’s perhaps no city as versatile as Los Angeles. With stunning vistas, iconic landmarks and perfect weather virtually year-round, it’s no wonder so many couples tie the knot in the City of Angels. Luckily, Los Angeles is also a mecca for artists, including talented wedding photographers.

What to Look for in a Los Angeles Wedding Photographer

Los Angeles offers a wide array of photographers due to the city’s bustling scene of celebrities and entertainment culture. With so many options, it may be hard to focus on who would be the right photographer for you. Start with your budget: How much can you and your fiancé(e) afford to spend on a photographer? If you’re not sure how to answer, budget-planning sheets can be a real lifesaver to offer a visual queue as to what you’re planning on spending, and where you may need to make adjustments. You can predict to spend about 10 percent of your wedding budget on a photographer in Los Angeles, which may range anywhere from $1,500 to $3,000.

Once you settle on a price range, you can move onto the real fun: Flipping through photography portfolios. Whether this is done from the comfort of home or in person during an interview, you should identify areas of experience that matter most to you.If the wedding will be outdoors, it’s important to find a photographer who has experience shooting in natural light. The story the photographer tells is also important – you’ll want to see your love story reflected back in your photos, so finding someone who matches your personality is just as important as their skillset.

Gardens and Fountains and Skylines, Oh My! Scouting Los Angeles Wedding Photography Locations

Since the golden age of Hollywood began, Los Angeles has been a staple of the big screen –and for good reason. Los Angeles wedding photographers will have no shortage of iconic places to shoot. Head to the Santa Monica Pier for a beachy, relaxed shoot. Pose with the iconic ferris wheel in the background, or if you’re feeling adventurous, why not shoot on the ride itself?

Skyline views also make for gorgeous wedding shots. Check out Vista Hermosa Park, where you’ll have all of downtown Los Angeles at your back and adorable benches to perch on for photos. The Griffith Observatory is another great option for couples looking for wedding photos with sweeping landscapes – and their policies are very relaxed. Pose anywhere you’d like, indoor or out – just be careful with the telescopes.

California Dreaming: Factoring Weather into Your Wedding Photography Plans

Photographers often aim to work during the “golden hour,” the time of day when the light is most flattering. California is home to the weather equivalent of the golden hour, meaning there’s virtually no bad time for wedding photography. Breezy days are possible, and the odd thunderstorm can’t be ruled out, so make sure to plan for a picturesque indoor option to shoot should the weather not cooperate that day.

What good are photos if nobody sees them? A great hashtag can set the tone for your special day and allow you to easily collect images your friends and family share. Need some ideas to help you find your hashtag? WeddingWire’s hashtag generator is a great place to get started on your journey toward capturing your wedding in photographs you’ll treasure forever.
