When talking to prospective wedding photographers it really helps to have an idea of what you actually want from your wedding photography. Do you want a majority of candid photographs that tell the story of the day with the odd formal group, or would you prefer a large number of formal groups or a mixture of candid, fun and formal photographs?
When setting your wedding budget, strike a balance between cost and quality and choose an affordable wedding photographer who has a proven track record of capturing the romance and emotion of wedding events.
Once you have an understanding of what you are looking for it will make choosing a wedding photographer much easier.
Talk to your prospective photographers; ask if you can view a gallery or two of complete weddings, not just their favourites. Even though you are not looking at your wedding there should still be a connection.
Make sure you talk to your prospective wedding photographers and explain what you are looking for. Make sure that your styles match, it’s much better to do this early than receive your wedding photographs after your big day and realise that you don’t like what you’ve paid for.
Bear in mind that you will be spending a large portion of the day with your wedding photographer so make sure that you both get on as it will make all the difference!
Price is a consideration, but the least expensive photographer won’t be a bargain if your wedding photographs are a disappointment.
