Making the final decision on who to book as your photographer doesn’t need to be stressful or confusing. Check back here for regular tips on how to narrow down the list and end up with the best vendor for you!
Research, research, reasearch! Start by looking online at wedding directories, buying several bridal magazines, checking out photographer’s websites and short listing a number of studios whose work you like. Ask yourself what style of photography are you after? Candid, posed, simple, classic? There is no right or wrong as all individuals have different tastes! Find a style that suits you, whether it is candid (photojournalistic) or posed (portrait) shots. Aim to select 3 of your favourite studios to visit, as visiting more than 3 may result in confusion.
As a part of your research it’s also a great idea to meet with the photographers on your shortlist. Photographers can have a big impact on how your day runs, and you definitely want to make sure you get on well with them. At your appointment consider whether the photographer really loves shooting weddings. Make a mental note of how they refer to past brides and grooms, warmly or with careless remarks – are they genuinely enthusiastic about wedding photography or burned out? The last thing you want is to worry about your images on your biggest day!

Ms Gingham says: Another great tool that’s there to be used is Twitter. Following various vendors through Twitter can give you an invaluable insight into work that they’re doing, things they’re involved in and it also feels like you get to know them on a more personal level. Interaction with your chosen photographer through this medium can create a familiarity that will make your day run even smoother!
