How to choose your Wedding Photographer

So you are wondering how to choose your wedding photographer?

Imagine This.  It is your wedding anniversary and you and your partner sit down with a glass of wine. You wish you could open your album but you didn’t get one.   You wanted a beautiful memory of the story of your day, but you had a budget at the time and you were really too busy to meet everyone, so you thought “How different can photographers be? Surely I don’t need to spend that much on my photos?”    Your photographer seemed to have all the qualifications and equipment, and it’s not that they were horrible or didn’t give you lots of images, but the photographs just don’t capture the emotions you had on the day.  So what went wrong?

When we book a wedding photographer there is often a checklist of items or questions you ask to make sure they are right for you. These questions are often limited to the package including availability, the package inclusions and the budget.  There are further questions you should ask about choosing your wedding photographer to ensure that you will be happy with the end result.  At the end of the day, a lot of photographers can provide the same service to you – what you are paying for is their expertise; their technical skill; their ability to capture the small details, the warm relationships between you and your guests.  You spend so much money on capturing these precious moments that you want to make sure that the wedding photography meets (and exceeds) your expectations.
