Brighton Wedding Photography
Wedding Season is fast approaching again and I already have a few winter weddings and bookings into summer and next year. Over the next few months I will be seeing lots of wedding couples looking for their perfect wedding photographer.
Your wedding day is the one day in your life when you are surrounded by all your friends and family, so you want to be sure that you get it right! Using an experienced, professional wedding photographer is going to mean that your memories of the day are not left to chance.
When looking for a wedding photographer there are three main things to consider:
Do you like the style of the photography? Every photographer is different and has their own style, from traditional to modern, posed to natural. Choosing the photographer with a style you like is so important. Make sure you don’t just see the best 20 wedding photos on a website but try to see complete weddings and a good range of work.
Do you feel comfortable with the photographer’s personality? This is just as important! The photographer will be walking through your wedding day with you so you need to get someone you feel comfortable with. Make sure you meet the photographer properly and don’t commit to booking someone until you are ready.
Is the price right? This is perhaps the trickiest decision of all as you will inevitably know if you like the style and personality of the photographer. At the end of the day you have a budget, but it is the most important day of your life and you will want good photos to remember it by. Wedding photography prices range from a couple of hundred pounds to a few thousand and there are no guarantees that spending more will result in better photographs. The most important thing is to find out what you are getting for your money. Some photographers will include prints and websites, some will put restrictions on usage of the digital photos, some will professionally edit your photos, some include wedding books. Be sure there are no hidden extra charges and that you get what you pay for!
Other considerations are: How long has the photographer been in business? Does the photographer have all of the appropriate insurances? Does the Photographer use a mixture of film and digital cameras? Does the photographer offer additional extras? Does the photographer have a relaxed and friendly personality so guests and family are natural in the photos? Can the photographer deal with differing lighting conditions? Is the photographer able to orchestrate any group photos efficiently and speedily? Are there additional charges?

There are lots of things to consider so take your time, see as many photographers as possible, ask lots of questions and don’t be pressurised into making a commitment until you are completely sure.
