One of the most important decisions you and your other half will have to make when planning your nuptials is which wedding photographer to go for.

After all, they will be the ones capturing your special day in film, preserving all those wonderful memories for you to look back on over the years… so you need to know that they have the skills and experience in place to do a brilliant job.

Before you make any decisions, sign any contracts or part with any money, make sure you look at lots of different portfolios of work so you can get an idea of what kind of style of photography you’d like. This will help you narrow down the choices relatively quickly.

Once you have a shortlist of photographers, ask to view all their images (not just the ones they put on their website) so you know that they can consistently come up with the goods. You could also ask to be put in touch with other couples whose weddings they’ve shot so you can seek further recommendations and find out what they were like on the day.

Always make sure that you meet your chosen photographer in person before you make any final decisions, as it’s important that you feel comfortable with them and that you all get along if you’re to get the best photos of the day.

It can also be helpful if your photographer has shot weddings at your venue before, as it means they’ll know the best locations for photos and the lighting conditions, as well.
