How to choose a photographer...

After the reception cost, the cost of photography for a wedding is generally the greatest cost. At least for me, I am not planning to spend big dollars on a dress! With this in mind, and also since the photos will be the only memory of the date when you are old and dribbly you want to make sure you choose wisely.

We had dinner with G&T on Saturday. We hadn't see then for ages, and it was not until we actually saw them that I realised how long it had been. They were married in 2007, and at one point during the night I had asked them about their photographer. Not wanting to go into detail, they were not too happy with the experience, and I came away with some tips on what to look out for.

  • Ask to see a whole album of their work before you sign on the dotted line. The photographer may only capture one or two good shots from a wedding, and you can be sure that this will be what they put up on their website

  • If you are going to be getting the photos on CD/DVD, make sure that the photographer is going to give you the native, unedited files. It is difficult or maybe impossible to reverse photoshop effects!

  • Be comfortable with your photographer, and be happy! You are expecting them to capture one of the most important days of your life, and you should feel relaxed around them and confident that they are going to do you justice!

We have yet to choose a photographer, so more on the experience once we have gone through the process.
