How do you choose your wedding photographer

How to Choose the Right Wedding Photographer for you!!

Everyone wants their wedding to be perfect, from the cake to the flowers. It takes a lot of time and planning to pick the perfect dress and tuxedo and the caterer. It's a day that will last in your memory for a life time and to keep that memory fresh, it's important to choose the right wedding photographer.

When you budgeted your wedding, you might not have realised how expensive wedding photographers can be. Some of them charge by the hour and for distance travelled. Before you book with the first one you come across, do a lot of research.

Many wedding photographers offer different packages, so that they can stay within most price ranges. Naturally, the lower priced packages will include fewer pictures. Other factors involved are the size of the pictures and whether you want them in black and white. Go over all of the packages that the various wedding photographers offer and decide what pictures you can do without. Do you really need the photographer to follow you around and capture every second? This will help you save a lot of money.

Another important thing to consider is how many copies you want. Many couples like to have a small picture to include in thank you cards. There are also both sides of the family to consider as well as friends, so make sure you have an accurate figure in mind when ordering the number of copies. You will also have to choose how long you want the wedding photographer for. There are many pictures to be taken of the bride and groom and the wedding party. This should take about 90 minutes, so make sure you choose a package that will include enough time with wedding photographer.

When you choose your wedding photographer, you want the best one available. Get referrals from friends or family members. This can provide a measure of comfort. Make an appointment to see several wedding photographers and be sure to view their work. 
Don't just look at the portfolio of their best work. 

Ask to see pictures that are not included in the portfolio, so you can get a better sense of their work.

Once the day is gone, it's gone forever so you only get one shot at the pictures. 

Take your time and don't be pressured into buying their services until you are sure that they are going to do the best job for you.

Despite doing the best research and choosing the most recommended wedding photographer, there's always the chance that something can go wrong. This is where wedding insurance comes in. Since wedding pictures are so expensive, having the insurance will protect you in case the pictures are flawed, because you won't have to pay the wedding photographer. It's good to have this insurance because no matter how well you plan, there's always the chance that something could go wrong. You might suffer from not having pictures of your special day, but at least you won't have to pay for ones that are not what you wanted.
