Even the world’s best photographers are going to have a hard time creating a light and airy feel in the dark. Whether it’s a windowless ballroom or an outdoor reception at night, they can only do so much with what they’re given. Because of this, it’s important to study how potential photographers handle lack of light. Consider what the light will look like at your venue throughout the day, and ask your photographer how they would handle that kind of lighting. Look at an entire album, and see how they photograph and edit once the sun goes down, and make sure you love that part of their work, too.
