Shar’s Hints & Tips for your Photography

Photography is considered a very important aspect of your Wedding.  Choosing the right photographer is vital, as he/she will be capturing the memories you will keep for your lifetime and for future generations.

Here are some questions you may like to raise with the photographer – meet with them face to face where possible.

  • What are your options for wedding packages and the different costs?
  • Do you work in colour, black and white or both?
  • Are formal photos your speciality or are you just as skilful with candid pictures?
  • Where do you suggest we go for after Wedding photos?
  • Will I have to pay for special effects?
  • When can we expect to see the photographs from our Wedding?
  • Is our Wedding album included in the price and when can we expect to receive it?
  • Do you take photos before, during and after our Wedding as well as at the Reception?
  • Do enlargements come with the deal?
  • Do we get an electronic copy of all photographs and the rights to have them printed ourselves?
  • Can we look at previous examples of your work?
  • Do you have any testimonials from previous clients?
  • Do you do a trial to help familiarise us with your technique?
  • Do you want to ask your Celebrant to advise guests not to upload any photos to Social Media until you have had a chance to do so using your photographer’s photos.

Once you have made your decision ask the photographer to put it all in writing.  Alternatively you put it in writing and make sure the photographer understands and agrees.
