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.
