Are you going to be getting married in London? Or perhaps one of the surrounding counties, such as Hertfordshire, Middlesex or Essex? You’ll have alot of decisions to make. And one of this is who will be your wedding photographer.
So what’s the most important things that should determine your choice of Hertfordshire or London wedding photographer? We’ve come up a few suggestions of what should sway your choice of Hertfordshire and London wedding photography studio.
Your photographer is going to be with you for pretty much the whole of your wedding day. Like taking an all day car trip, that’s quite a while to be spending with someone. And it’s not just you – your family and friends too.
Your wedding photographer’s personality can have a big impact on the tone of your entire wedding day. And that of your bridal party. Consider also that your photographer isn’t just going to be with you for the day. There’s the engagement shoot. The bridal shoot. Going through selecting photos for the album and more. So it’s really important that you hire a wedding photographer that you gel with. Make no mistake, personality is of major importance when selecting a Hertfordshire and London wedding photographer.
Price does matter when choosing your wedding photographer. After all, you’ve probably heard at least one story about couples who’ve selected a wedding photographer based on who is the cheapest photographer they could find, and came unstuck. Perhaps it was the quality of the photos that suffered. More than likely it was the quality of the service and products. Your wedding photography is too precious to risk to someone who doesn’t know what to do to get great images of your wedding day.
Wedding photographs are treasured memories and deserve to be presented appropriately. A wedding album is a popular choice for many, and is something your wedding photographer should include as part of their packages. This is not to be underestimated – it is the first heirloom of your new family together. It’s a keepsake – your first keepsake as a couple – that you will have for always to remember your wedding.
When you’re selecting a wedding photographer, you should be looking for an album that tells people what your new family are all about. Not all wedding albums are equal. A few questions you should ask your Hertfordshire and London wedding Photographer:
Something people can overlook when choosing Hertfordshire and London wedding photographers is time. The number of hours that will be on offer to cover your Hertfordshire and London wedding. In most cases, you’ll want your wedding photographer to be with you to document all the moments of your wedding day. That said, you’ll need about 8-10 hours for your wedding day coverage.
A word of warning – some wedding photographers will include discounted rates for less hours that appear to offer great deals, but don’t bear up to close inspection. It’s all very well taking packages that look like a bargain, but not if they don’t offer enough hours to adequately cover your wedding day. These lead to costs escalating when you realise it, or disappointment if they’ve booked something else afterwards and can’t stay around to finish the job.
When it comes to weddings, most events need at least two Hertfordshire and London wedding photographers. Why two? Because there are key moments where one photographer cannot capture all the action. Your main wedding photographer can focus on working with your group and directing the day. Meanwhile the second wedding photographer will cover what else is going on at the same time. For example, when the bride is entering the ceremony – who’s capturing the expression of the groom?
