Our Key

Requirements and Criteria

To maintain a high level of trust, each and every Wedding Maps photographer is manually approved by the Wedding Maps team. This selection process ensures that the curated list of photographers meet the standards of quality, creativity, and client service we expect from leading industry professionals. Our system of approval includes following requirements:


Creative Skill

We require that our photographers deliver a high level of creativity in their photography. We want to see photographers who find unique compositions, identify interesting lighting opportunities, and deliver a range of images from shoot to shoot.


Technical Mastery

We require our photographers to have a technical mastery of photographic concepts.  Photographers are not accepted into the directory if their work consistently shows technical issues such as unintentional blur or soft focus, white balance issues, flash or lighting issues, and more.


Storytelling and Photojournalism

We require that our photographers capture emotion and stories in their photography.  We believe that wedding photographers should have an eye for storytelling and anticipate impactful moments before they happen.



Prior to acceptance, we analyze the online reviews of the photographer to identify any consistent complaints or issues with the photographer’s client service experience.



We require that our photographers have at least 3 years of experience as a professional photographer and at least 30 weddings of experience.
