Things to Consider when Choosing your Wedding Photographerby Darren Curtis D S Curtis Photography
You always want the best possible photos of your big day. Having the best wedding photographer in Durham is a great start but there are lots to consider when deciding on the best photographer for you. Listed below are 7 wedding photography tips that I would advise couples to consider when deciding on who should capture their big day.
Your budget for photography:
There are some very good wedding photographers in Durham..... and also some that cut corners. you will see people advertising cheap packages on facebook, but think about the amount of work that goes into good wedding photography, the preparation, the day itself and the weeks of processing each individual image through photoshop, not to mention the quality of a high end, handmade Album.... The old saying is absolutely true – you get what you pay for.
Meet your photographer in advance:
Most professional photographers like to spend time with their clients before their actual shoot so that they can develop that relaxed atmosphere that is much needed for a quality shoot. The more comfortable you are with the photographer, the less awkward you will feel... having a complete stranger you have never met pointing a camera at you doesn't produce the best results.
Have a list for group shots and any requests.
Don’t forget to provide your photographer a list of your must-have snaps. This is your chance to get across to your photographer precisely what you’ve planned for your special day. If you have any creative ideas for some shots then your wedding photographer would to hear them!
Do you want a second photographer?:
If you have over 100 guests it is almost a
must to have a second shooter, having a second photographer is also a good idea
to get 2 different views of the ceremony as the main photographer can rarely
move freely around the venue. Another advantage is more candid shots of the guests
to choose from. However it is not always the best option, if you have a more
private event with close family and friends or a small venue then perhaps it is
a better option to have just the main photographer.
Don't Wait until the last minute to book a photographer:
If you find a good photographer, don’t hesitate to book them! Reputed wedding photographers in Durham often get booked a year or more in advance and the peak season goes first. Nothing is more annoying than selecting a wedding photographer & then finding out that they booked out your date a week before.
So, keep these above points in mind when
booking your wedding photography. We wish you all the very best of luck and
a stress-free wedding photographer search.
