How to choose a Wedding Photographer

I thought that i might share with you some tip on choosing a wedding photographer – in case any of you are getting married in the near future!  It is never to early to start looking for a photographer and build up a relationship with them before the wedding day.

One way to do this is to try out a few photographers that you are interested in.  Try arranging a simple studio shoot with the photographer, or a little something at a location.  This way you can get a feel for how well you get on with the photographer and you might save yourself a lot of anguish later on by building up your confidence in their skills.  Some photographers include a pre-wedding shoot in their packages.  This is great except that you are then already committed to the whole service.  I would suggest negotiating to see if you can get a ‘taster’ session first.  You can then use the resulting pictures (if they are any good!) as a feature at the reception – maybe have all your guests sign the frame of an informal shot of you both while they wait to be seated.  However you decide to choose your photographer don’t be afraid to ask questions and be sure you know exactly what you are paying for!
