Deciding the best photographer to capture your wedding day should be right there near the top of your priority list. After all, what’s the point of the perfect dress, the gorgeous reception and spending all those hours having a face beat?
Luckily, there are plenty of photographers out there to suit you and your budget, but firstly you’ll need to figure out the kind of look you want from your finished photos.
You should also think about the shots of you and your spouse and even that of your humble guests.
Do you want a highly stylised portrait session or are you happy to only have incidental shots? Do you want minimal editing? Do you like old-fashioned effect or modern-style? Once you are able to give answers to all these questions, you can start to narrow your choice of photographer.
Get inspirations by looking at wedding magazines and photographer’s websites. Remember to keep a note of the outstanding photographers that are outstanding. You can as well get recommendations from couples you know have already taken the plunge and look out for those photographer who have been featured on reputable websites and blogs.
Once you have narrowed it down to just a few potential photographers, starting making enquires. Know their prices and fit that into your budget to decide whether or not you want them.
Before committing to a photographer it’s important to go through at least their complete wedding album and not just their edited work.
You need to assess how they photograph the getting ready process, ceremony, speeches, dancing and all the moments in between.
