A Venue For Great Wedding Photography
Your wedding day is said to be without a doubt the most magical day of your life, so the memories of your special day have to be complete perfection. This is why choosing the right wedding photographer is so important.
Whether you want something quirky, funny or even scary or just the usual family photo selection there is a photographer out there to make your day amazing but a bad one can spoil your precious memories so vigilance in this area is of utmost importance. From budget to extras and design there’s a ton to consider so here’s a helpful guide.
The first thing to do when booking this vital part of your day is to work out an exact budget of how much you are willing to spend. It is usually best to set aside around 500 to 1000 pounds as this is the average cost of a strong wedding photography package. Some couples can obtain cheaper deals by asking a talented family member or friend but hiring a professional is usually best.
When this is done get online and browse your local newspapers to find a suitable company or freelancer near you. Freelancers can be cheaper but can be more of a risk. When a potential photographer is found do not make any calls until you have searched the internet for customer reviews and complaints. Make sure to be thorough at this point and take at least an hour. It may be help full to write down a list of companies and discuss the pros and cons of each together. For example one company might be further away than another but have lower prices. Sometimes it is best to be suspicious of companies offering an excessively low price as this could indicate a lack of quality. If you find such a company and wish to take a risk try asking them why the prices are so low.
If you are hiring a freelancer ensure that you meet with them first in a public place or for a home visit and view their portfolio. The company or freelancer in theory should offer you a range of different packages including special extras such as a DVD or memory book so be sure to ask lots of questions.
It may also be a good idea to examine the photographers qualifications and licenses in detail. A good wedding photographer usually has a specific degree in the subject from a known University and can provide proof of this if required. This may seem harsh to some but the most magical day of your life is at stake and there are too many horror stories out there already.
DVD’s or a creative memory book are excellent additions to the hard copies of your pictures and could give your day that extra special twist. Some people also like to have their big day filmed for a wedding video. If you choose this you will be allowed to select the font, colour and style of any text, choose the music and decide the parts of the ceremony to be filmed.
