Snap - Choosing Your Photographer

After all your months of planning, your wedding day will pass by in the blink of an eye. Which is why having great photographs that reflect your big day is so important and wonderful to look back on weeks, months, and years after the big event.

You will not regret spending time finding the right photographer as you will rely on them to capture the mood and style of your day, as well as for their capacity to direct you and your wedding party and make you feel comfortable.

THINGS TO CONSIDER:

BUDGET

What percentage of your budget have you allowed for this? This will determine how much of the day the photographer captures and may require you to adjust some of the run times to suit. Cut the cake straight after speeches etc.

WHAT IS INCLUDED IN THE PACKAGE?

Will you receive copies of all the images or just a set number? Do you receive any prints? Understand exactly what your photographer is offering and confirm it in writing.

STYLE

To avoid disappointment, it is important they understand what style of photographs you are after: documentary, natural, posed, candid.

WEATHER

If there is one thing you can’t control, apart from Aunty Mildred after chardonnay, this is it. Make sure you have a wet weather backup plan.

SOCIAL MEDIA

Come up with a social-media plan early on. Do you want guests to post images or send everything to you for vetting? Will you have a Twitter hashtag or Instagram account? Make sure your wishes are made clear or risk a digital disaster.
