Choosing your Wedding Photographer & Videographer

We understand how important it is, to choose the right photographer & videographer for your big day; that’s why we’re here to help you choose!

There are certain things you should consider when choosing who would be the perfect fit for you.

Establish what you want/style you want from your wedding photos.

Do your research.  Have a look at different photographer & videographers’ portfolio’s & social media to see what you do and don’t like. From that, you will be able to see the style that you do want and know what you’re looking for.

Agree your budget

Decide how much you would like to spend. This could sway your decision on which photographer & videographer you choose, depending on their rates. Your wedding photos & videos are something you are going to look back on for many years & a great memory of the day; make sure you invest properly in them.

Ask for referrals and reviews

Research photographers & videographers reviews.  Have a look how other people have rated them who used them and what their experience of them was, some might even include the media on their review. Ask your friends & family; if any of them have got married recently or know someone who has, see who they used and their experience of them, whether they would recommend for you to use too.

Contact & set up a meeting

Get in touch with your chosen photographer & videographer.  Speak to them directly; ask the questions you need to understand them and their work and let them understand you and what you want. An important question to ask them, have they shot at your venue before? Experience at your venue means they will know the best backdrops, the best lighting areas, and the best timing for the perfect shots.
