A wedding is a memorable day for not only the lucky two but everyone involved. It brings together families, creates friendships and bonds and is a beautiful, sacred day that will live on in many people’s memories for years to come. And of course, with all the love and happiness going on throughout the day, we want to capture these special moments to look back on. With that in mind, it would be prudent to recognise and remember a few crucial key points when booking your wedding photographer.

I’m sure you’ve heard of the wedding photographer nightmares that have happened before, the photographer not turning up, being late, being a lousy photographer or losing all of the footage and photos. It’s not uncommon for that to happen, so it makes sense to pay the right guy/girl to do the right job. 

A wedding photographer may sound like an expensive outlay for some, but considering the grand scheme of everything involved, it’s a minor fee to pay to capture the most unforgettable moments that you’ll cherish for a long time.

  1. Portfolio and reviews

A reputable wedding photographer should always have a viewable portfolio so that you can see previous work and see if it’s what you’re looking for. Photographer styles often differ, and some may not capture moments the way you want them to be captured. A different style doesn’t mean that any photographer is worse than the other; it merely means their style isn’t suited to your taste. Though any photographer that doesn’t have a portfolio, usually means they’re new, (which isn’t necessarily a bad thing) or they’re simply not of a professional level.

Positive testimonials or reviews are always a good sign too. If people are happy with the service offered, they’ll usually shout it from the rooftops so you can be sure you’re in line for an equally as professional service.

  1. Cost

An expensive wedding photographer doesn’t always mean a good one. You can get yourself an affordable wedding photographer that will do a fantastic job; you just have to shop around a little and do your research. Though this swings both ways, a dirt cheap photographer may be dirt cheap for a reason, so stay clear of those and refer to point number 1, check the portfolio. This will always paint a picture of what they’re capable of. Many professionals out there will supply a general pricing list/structure on their website for your viewing. These prices are usually not definitive as many people want a tailored package because as you know, not all weddings are the same.

  1. Services offered

They don’t just snap photos, a lot of them will offer a whole package of services that you may not have even thought about. Videography is a service that is usually part of the package, and they can capture those funny speeches, first dances and other memorable parts of your wedding. Your photographer may also offer a variety of printable options for your photos, meaning books, framed pictures, keyrings, etc. It would make sense to speak with them about these services offered and try to get a reasonable price for a package deal.
