Your wedding photography is likely to be one of the most enduring mementos of your wedding day. These photos are likely to be on the walls of your home for the rest of your lives and there are no do-overs. You'll only have one so it's important to get photos that you're happy with. And that all comes down to hiring the right wedding photographer for you. In this guide, we give you some tips on how to do exactly that.
Don't Choose Wedding Photographers Purely Based on Price
We understand that if you're strapped for cash, price is going to be a factor in your decision making process. However, going cheap on their wedding photography is a common regret of newly wed couples. That's definitely something to keep in mind and if it should come to it, maybe it's worth doing without something else in order to get the wedding photographer you want.
Look At a Wedding Photographers Portfolio
When considering a particular photographer, look at their portfolio of previous work. They say the camera never lies, but photography is an art and different photographers stylise their photos in particular ways. Do you like the style of photos you're seeing? If you don't, do not try to tell them what you want. Find a photographer whose style you like.
Try A Pre-Wedding Shoot
Pre-wedding photo shoots are becoming more and more common and are much cheaper than wedding day photography. This could be a great way to trial a photographer before committing to them for your actual wedding. If you're happy with the pre wedding photography, including the service you receive and the time it takes the photographer to supply you with the photos, that is at least an indication that they will be able to deliver on your actual wedding day.
