Importance of Choosing a Good Wedding Photographer


‘ A picture is worth a thousand words’

It is very important that you research the photographer you choose for your wedding before you make the booking. The photos you receive will be with you for the rest of your life and your wedding only happens once!

Here are a few tips to help you choose your wedding photographer!

1. How long has your photographer been in the business?

Are they just starting out or is this there only job that they have been doing for years. You don’t want your wedding photos to be used as training ground. The photographer you choose should know what they are doing! How to use lighting to your advantage, where to stand for all the important moments, how to make you feel comfortable and this all comes with years of experience.

2. Price

If the price sounds to good to be true then it usually is! Remember that your photographer will not only be coming out on the day to shoot your photos they have hours of work to do in the studio, hours of culling, editing and organising your wedding photos.

3. Personality

Regardless of how talented the photographer is, you need to have a good relationship with them. Before your day meet up with them to talk and see if you feel comfortable. Remember this person will be taking all the special memories of the most important day of your life. If you don’t feel comfortable with them look elsewhere until you find someone who does!

4. Photography Style

Don’t book a photographer until you have sussed out their style of photography. Know what style of photography you want! Some photographers take more natural relaxed shots, other traditional and formal shots. Ask to see examples of their work and read customer reviews!


With so many wedding photographers out there, it can be a hard task choosing who to go for so take time to sit down with your partner and research!
