Finding the perfect wedding photographer

But theres so many, how do I decide?

Finding the perfect wedding photographer is one of the most important decisions to be made when planning your big day. There are many photographers in the market but finding the right one means you will have the best photos to remember your special day in full colour. Every wedding photographer has their own style so one of the best ways to start choosing the right photographer for you is to take a look at some portfolios. Instead of looking at the backgrounds, look for the positions, lighting and general feel of the images. This will tell you a lot about the photographer behind the scenes. When you’ve found the style you’ve been looking for get in touch with your chosen photographer to find out their availability. Meet up with them before your nuptials to discuss what photos you would like to get on your day. Some examples of photos many couples have taken at the wedding are:

• Families of the bride and groom
• Bridal party
• The big group ensemble
• Parents
• Children
• Work colleagues
• Signing the register
• Walking down the aisle
• First steps as a married couple

Of course the photo opportunities don’t end at the close of your wedding ceremony. The wedding reception is just as important when it comes to capturing precious moments. Other guests may arrive for the party so this is the time to makesure you have photos of everyone. A second group photo means everyone can be caught on camera. Make excuses from the party for a while to have some private shots with your spouse. Depending on your chosen venue there may be some picturesque scenes to be used outside or even some elaborately decorated rooms which provide stunning backdrops for photos. Your chosen wedding photographer will have some interesting and classic poses for you to try for your wedding photos and some natural shots along the way really capture the beauty of your wedding day. Once the day is over you may be able to extend your contract with your selected wedding photographer so they can also get some great images from your honeymoon and first days after the wedding.
