Anyone can take photos at a wedding, but not everyone can be a wedding photographer. When it comes to your special day, you need the right person to produce the record your memories which you will treasure for ever. After all, the pictures are going to last much longer than the invitations or the bridesmaids’ shoes!
Clearly, you need to check any potential photographer is available on the day you are getting married. Next, if cost is a primary consideration, check their price.
Then you’ll need to see some past work samples. If you like them, don’t be put off by a higher price than you initially budgeted for. But be sure to see the work of the person who would be behind the camera on the day.
Don’t get too bogged down in detail – such as whether they shoot on film or digitally – what matters is work which looks behind the standard line-up shots to capture the joy of a wedding day in an original way.
Finally, personal rapport is also important – find someone you like!
