Wedding Photography - Where do I start? PDF Print E-mail

When your big day has come to an end after all the months and weeks of planning, preparations, finalising details and then finally marrying the love of your life - what’s left after the dust has settled? Memories, a few mementoes and the photographs…

As time progresses and the memories fade it is the photographs that you will rely on to remember and reminisce your special day with. The photographs that you will show your children and remember how you looked, all the beautiful flowers and decorations, the cake, the kiss and all the guests who shared this amazing day with you…

Choosing your photographer is one of the most important decisions you will make when planning your wedding day.
Great wedding photographers don't offer their service cheaply so the saying “you get what you pay for” applies in this instance - don't make the mistake of choosing your photographer on price alone. However, this does not necessarily mean you need to go and book the most expensive wedding photographer either. A professional wedding photographer has the experience, having proven themselves over and over with many couples. They keep up to date with the latest photography trends and they don’t just take pictures – they see things that you don’t see, an insight which enables them to capture your day perfectly tailored to your personality, style and expectations.

Research is the key, ask friends and family if they were satisfied with their photographer, what they received for the money they spent and were they happy with the quality of the images and album? Bridal expos are a great place to talk with potential wedding photographers and view their past work and bridal magazines are also a great starting point in your search for the right photographer.

Looking through a photographer’s portfolio will give you a sense of their style and quality of their skills as their book samples the best of their past work so it is very important to spend time looking and taking note of what you love and also more importantly what you don’t like, make a list of shots that are very important to you both – communicating these things to your photographer should ensure that you are nothing less than thrilled with the results.
