What to look for in a wedding photographer

There are probably hundreds of wedding photographers in your area, but only a small number will be full time wedding photographers who are booked every single weekend, and possible some weekdays. To find a truly professional photographer it’s important to look out for a couple of things on their website:

Their experience

Do they show they’ve photographed lots of weddings, state they have 10+ years experience or admit they’re new to the field? Honesty is always good and a good photogrpaher who’s confident in his or her ability will be comfortable talking about their experience.

Their photos

Do they have 10 nice photos, 100 fabulous photos or just 3? A good photographer will have lots of photos to share, so a website without much content may be a sign they’re not the finished article just yet. We advise you opt for an individual with experince photogrpahing a range of weddings.

Cringe Weddings – We’ve all been to them, right?

As much as I love weddings, I can be quite difficult to please, and all too recently I’ve had too many cringeworthy weddings. What is about them that makes me quiver? Well, I’ll talk you through the last one. The bride and groom must have walked into the shop and bought the first dress and tux they’d seen, it was traditional in every sense. Then when it rolled around to the speeches nobody did one! The best man didn’t even do a speech, it was awful! Following this, the bride and groomed danced to ‘I don’t want to miss a thing’ by Aerosmith, yes the one from Armageddon. Hasn’t that already been done? Nothing was original or special about this wedding, and I’m glad I never have to go though it again. Oh, and congrats to the happy couple.

Getting a good deal on wedding photography

Prices for wedding photography can be extremely high, just it is for catering, cake baking, chair decorating, planning and management. That said, there are opportunities to save money and it’s all about looking in the right places. There are some great wedding photographers to be found on Gumtree, in local newspapers, on Facebook, or through a friend of a friend. Just by running one search on Google you may find that prices for a full day are well over £1,000, but the more you look elsewhere the more chance you have of finding a cheaper alternative. There is one problem with this, however, and that’s the fact that most photographers are expensive for a reason and most photographers who are cheaper, are cheap for a reason. So you should always look at the quality of their portfolio carefully. If you need a photographer for your wedding make sure you ask around and spend a good few days looking at different prices and portfolios in in your area, that way you’ll find an individual who is right for you and within your budget.
