Choosing the perfect photographer for your wedding day


by Fennes

Our wedding day is a moment which will always stay with us, in our minds and in our hearts. Which is why it’s important to have a flawless collection of photographs to remember it by. Most people regret not hiring a professional to capture snapshots throughout the day, this is because it can be stressful, rushed and easy to make mistakes without an expert touch. This guide gives you some helpful advice for picking the best cameraman for the job.


First: Decide on your photo style and price range

Modern, traditional, artistic or dramatic, whatever style you want they’re tons of photographers which specialise in the one you want. Sit down with your partner and have a chat about how you would like your wedding photos to look and how much you’re willing to spend. You can make a story out of your wedding day by using photographs, make sure to add your original twist to it. If you’re thinking about having a blend of two or more styles, such as some photos in sepia and some in colour, this is also something which most photographers offer. It’s important to work with your partner when deciding this, as it is something you’ll both remember forever.


Second: Do your research

 Once you’re set on the theme you want and a budget which will suit you, get on the computer and scour the internet for your ideal photographer. Handy websites, such as Easy Weddings can be extremely helpful in searching for professionals in your area. Make sure to read reviews from recent newlyweds to get real and truthful advice. Next, make a note of potential photographers and check out their portfolio/website. By looking at their previous work, this can give you a great indication of their unique style and whether it fits the one you’re after. Finally, check out the photographer’s social media content. Do they regularly update it? Do they have good feedback on recent projects? These are important factors to keep in mind when conducting your research.


Third: Meet face-to-face before the wedding

There’s nothing worse than being unprepared and meeting your photographer for the first time on the day of your wedding. When you’ve done enough research and settled on someone you would like to hire, schedule a time for you and your partner to meet them. This way you’re getting to know them on a personal level and having a chance to talk about how you can combine their photography style with your own wishes. Also, any questions regarding finance, time and place can be settled before the actual wedding. Not only will it save the awkwardness, but your photographer will feel more at ease after meeting in person before the big day.
