Getting married is not something that you do every day, so you will want memories of your wedding day that you can look back on for years to come, and even hand down to your children and grandchildren. This means that you need a professional wedding photographer to take the photographs, because although you may have an uncle who is a dab hand with an iPhone 13, that is not going to cut it.

Ideally, you want to have two wedding photographers because while one of them is taking formal shots in the garden, or wherever, the other can be roaming the venue and catching all the candid shots that you would simply never get otherwise. After all, you only get one wedding day, so you can’t do a retake the next day if something has gone wrong. On that note, when you are considering a photographer, it is important to know if he or she has a backup. Illnesses and family emergencies can happen to anyone, including wedding photographers.

Meet Up

It is important to meet up with your proposed photographer or photographers because they are going to be with you for the best part of a day, so you need to be able to get on with them. If your photographer has shot at your venue before, then he will have a good idea of the lighting and the best spots to take photos from. If not, he should be willing to visit your venue in order to check it out.

At Kenza Creations we can provide you with the wedding décor that you need for the big day and help with advice on wedding table decorations. You need to tell your photographer of particular shots that you need, because you may want to ensure that certain guests are included. Other things such as your table centrepiece, cutting the cake, and the first dance are important too. However, don’t make your shot list too long because this might mean that your photographer could miss candid shots if he is tied up on these, especially if you only have one photographer.

A professional wedding photographer is going to charge at least £1,000 for a full day, and for this you should get 300 – 400 fully edited images on a USB. If you want printed photos in an album, or albums, then you will need to be prepared to pay more. Always check exactly what is covered for the fee, and whether there will be any additional charges.
