What do I want from my wedding photographer?

I’m often asked what I should look for when booking a Wedding Photographer and here are the questions I would ask myself when I meet a potential wedding photographer and what I would like from that person or team

Firstly I’d just start with a blank piece of paper and brainstorm with my friends or bridesmaids as you may also come up with some additional ideas and thoughts for your own wedding . but I’d really want to feel a connection with them and love the style of wedding photography along with being confident that they will deliver a great set of wedding photographs in the style I want and have booked them for.

It should be really important to feel a connection with them and trust that they will be professional and friendly with ourselves and our guests throughout the wedding day along with working seamlessly with our other chosen suppliers and be confident they will deliver the photographs we would like to see.

Questions to ask and look for when booking a wedding photographer

Do I feel a connection with them and their work and am I confident they will deliver the photographs we would like to see.

Are they someone who listens to me and what I would like from my wedding day

Can I trust them to capture the memories we are making on our wedding day that will make me smile afterwards and re kindle those memories with great photographs

Its really important to me that they are friendly yet professional with us, our guests and to work seamlessly with our other suppliers they will be working with on the wedding day

For them to be unobtrusive at the right times but take professional control at others such as when photographing the wedding family groups

I want great service and a photographer who delivers on their promise to me.

Id like them to be knowledgeable about the venue we’ve chosen so they know where to take us to get the best photographs of us together along with where to take any famy groups that we want

Its really important for them to be on time and mindful of our schedule on the wedding day

Not to take over my wedding day but be mindful that the day is our day with our friends and our family

What Id like to recieve after the wedding day

I really want a wedding album and for them to offer to design a beautiful wedding album that tells the story of our wedding day and then help us edit it if we would like some picture changes before the wedding album is printed.

Its really important to have an on line gallery that’s easy to share and is password controlled so only who we choose who can view our wedding pictures. A shopping basket would also be nice so our wedding guests can buy a few prints if they wanted to

Some wow images to put into frames

Small albums for our parents
