Choosing and Using Your Wedding Photographer – A Guide to Help You Every Step of the Way
Choosing the right wedding photographer can be one of the most stressful decisions in planning your day. Before their wedding, most people won’t have hired a photographer. The sheer choice and varied styles are mind boggling. Every photographer will work in a different way and bring their individual dynamics to proceedings. Some you’ll love right from the beginning and others won’t resonate so much. I feel that the ratio should be around 50% photography and 50% personalities. If you don’t click, it’ll potentially spoil your day and could even show in the finished photographs.
Then, when you’ve chosen someone, there’s the day itself to negotiate. My wedding photography guide is provided in several easy to follow chapters. It takes you through the key stages of the process, both from your own and your photographer’s point of view.
From choosing your perfect photographer to the day itself with the preparations through to the first dance. Packed full of tips, ideas and advice on things that may not have otherwise occurred to you. I try to cover everything such as ideal light and how best to deal with venue rules on photography… a tricky subject in itself!
As well as masses of information, I include a plethora of photographs to illustrate various points. Hopefully, at the end, you should have a clearer idea of how to begin and negotiate through the process of having the most important day of your lives documented to look back on for years to come…
