• Wedding Photography Guide

    What's the most important thing a couple should think about when choosing a wedding photographer?
    "Choose a photographer that has pictures in their portfolio that captures the way you would like to remember your wedding. For example, do you want a photographer that will make a straightforward record of the day or a photographer that will capture the romance and bond between you and your partner? Or what about all the detail touches you have slaved over for months? These things can easily be overlooked. Additionally though, try not to shop for the price! When budgets are tight it's easy to look at the pound signs before the work/talent/ability itself. Try to research photographers that tick the boxes visually and then narrow down to what fits your budget."

    What's the best advice you'd give to any couple getting married?
    "When planning your wedding, if the photography is important to you on the day, make sure you allow plenty of time for the formal family and friends group images as well as portraits of you and your husband/wife. These pictures that are more creative take time and it’s wise to consult with your photographer about how long to allow. Also, it's often nice to take some time out during the wedding to have intimate pictures of just you and your partner as newlyweds, away from the hustle and bustle of it all. This gives you time to breathe and spend a bit of time together while settling yourselves before going back to all of your family and friends."

    How important is it for the couple to spend time with their photographer before the wedding?
    "A great time to spend with your photographer pre-wedding is at the venue. You can show them around and point out all the things you love about the place so that they can capture it from your perspective on the day! For me, getting to know my clients a bit prior to the wedding is important because I don't like to rattle out the same routine. Every wedding is unique and capturing it should reflect the couple in question."
