3 Things to Consider When Choosing Your Wedding Photographer:

  1. Cost – We all have a budget which we need to consider
  2. The Style of photography that the photographer produces
  3. The Photographer’s personality – Is he or she going to bring the best out of you and your partner on the day, do they make you feel at ease and comfortable?

It is very important to set up a meeting with a few potential photographers and chat to them to get to know them; come with a long list of questions. You could look at so many photographers’ pages and just love their work, but somehow your personalities maybe just don’t gel on the day and then you end up feeling irritated or on edge on your big day.

Choose a photographer that you feel understands the vision of your day and is there to support and capture all the things and moments that are important to you. It is always good to let the photographer know of little moments they need to be aware of, like a gift for the groom or a special person so they can make sure they are ready for this moment.

Always use a professional photographer, they are experienced in what they do and have the creative eye and knowledge to capture beautiful memories for you.
