[Information] When Looking for a Photographer...

Booking a Photographer for your special day, is a daunting task, you’ve heard bad stories about people booking photographers and getting bad photographs, you’ve seen amazing photographs but didn’t think they’d cost as much as they do, but you need to be able to find the photographer that is right for you.

So here are a few tips for you when you start looking for your Photographer:

Ask: Ask recently married friends, or work colleagues about who they used for their photographer, ask if you can look at their wedding images (if you’ve not already seen them) and ask for both good and constructive feedback, were they 100% happy with the service, and do they wish they had got something else that they didn’t get…

Also, ask your venue for recommendations and if you have other suppliers booked - ask them. A lot of people will have worked with photographers, but once you have a list of photographers you are then able to start going through your list, looking on websites and then able to have a list of your favourites - the ones that you would like to meet.

Research: Do not just look at google, you will be better looking at some of the Wedding Magazines, websites and Wedding blogs, rather than relying on the ones with the best search rankings doesn’t mean they’re the best photographers. Also, try and go to Wedding Fayres, once you know what style of photography you like - then you are able to research a little better and make a better choice.

Meet: Meet the photographer you are thinking about booking before you book them. It is important to make sure that they know who you are as people, and that they understand you. Use this to look at more of their work, and not only that but get a feel for them as a person. Trust your gut instinct. I always say, when you find the one you know, and it goes for your venue, your dress and even your photographer!

Book: Do not leave it too late to book! Some people leave it to chance to see if they can get a better deal by booking closer to their date, but this could leave you disappointed and unable to find a photographer you like. Most good and great photographers can get booked up more than a year in advance, especially for key dates.

Remember: Ask. Research. Meet and Book! And trust your gut instinct!
