We know: Tips For Choosing a Wedding Photographer
Who needs a wedding photographer?
If you are getting married and you want to document your wedding through still photographs, it's a good idea to hire a professional wedding photographer. Although hiring a photographer may not be cheap, having pictures taken of one of the most important days of your life is worth the cost to most couples.
What kind of pictures do wedding photographers take?
Normally photographers take either candid shots or posed shots and a lot will offer both types of photos.
How long will the wedding photographer stay?
Wedding photographers vary in how long they will stay for a wedding. Some stay for the entire wedding and reception, some only for the ceremony, and others stay for an agreed length of time, regardless of whether the wedding is running on schedule or not. Before signing any contracts, ensure you have agreed on how long the photographer intends to stay.
Questions you should ask any potential wedding photographers:
How much can I expect to pay for a photographer?
Wedding photographers can run anywhere from $500 up to several thousand dollars. Most couples spend between 10-15% of their total wedding budget on photographs. Make sure the photographer has written out what the fees include before you sign a contract or hand over any money.
The most important thing you can do is shop around. Most photographs have a variety of wedding photo packages, so there will be one to fit your budget.
