PHOTOS OF YOUR DAY
Stay focused: Capturing the moments that will last forever
FORmemories that last a lifetime, you will need a photographer to snap your special day.
And when choosing a wedding photographer there are several key considerations you have to make.
Firstly, decide on the style of photograph you want. Different photographers specialise in different things.
You have documentary photographers who capture the moments as they see it, you rarely have posed shots of people looking at the camera, the photos tell the story.
You have portrait photographers: think classic wedding photos with posed photoshoots (though that’s not to say they can’t be creative as well).
It is also good to decide what kind of look you want your photographs to have.
Do you want them to be bright, colourful and bounce off the page? Or do you want a more subdued film look, which is one of the main trends in 2017?
Thinking about these things can mean you can approach photographers who fit your style.
Once you have decided what sort of photograph you want, it’s a good idea to approach several photographers and have a chat with them about their costs, what they provide for that cost etc.
It could also be a good idea to do a practice shoot, such as engagement photos, with them, to make sure they are the right choice.
When chatting with them, it’s good to show them some example shots of what they want.
Wedding photographers are very experienced, they know what they are doing and generally what to capture.
