For your convenience, we’ve provided you some sound advice and helpful tips on how to select a photographer for your special wedding day!

When researching and selecting York Wedding Photographer or any Photography for your big day, remember some of these key points before coming to your final decision.

Firstly, do you like the photographer’s work?  Don’t select someone based on price alone as this will only lead to disappointment.  If the price is beyond your budget, be upfront and honest. Tell your photographer the budget you are comfortable with and hopefully you can come to an agreement on the perfect fit-for-you package that is affordable for your specific circumstances.

Do you like the photographer? Personalities sometimes clash so it’s best that you get on well with your image magician.  After all, they are going to be spending one of the most important days of your life with you…

Have they worked at or visited your wedding venue before?  If not, they really should make a site visit to scope out the surroundings and ideal photo locations, keeping in mind the threat of inclement weather on the big day.

Does the wedding snapper have a back-up plan?  As with having a wet weather plan, the photographer really should have a Plan B in their head which they can push into action should the photography location already be in use or unavailable.  If you have a back-up plan, you usually won’t need it!  The security of it is very reassuring  though, especially on a wedding day which already has enough stress involved as it is.

Does your photographer work alone or do they have an assistant?  What happens if they become sick?  Do they send someone else or cancel the gig?  As stated above, it’s always useful to have a back-up plan!

Is there a shot in your photographer’s portfolio that you don’t particularly like?  If so, tell them!  That way you won’t be disappointed, and they won’t try replicating one of their favorite previous shots.

Do you have family members visiting or relatives you simply must include in your photos? Make sure you draw up a shot list with all your requirements so  you receive the photos you hope for.

An engagement shoot is a great idea to help you and your partner warm up and prepare for the big day.  It’s also a great opportunity to get to know your photographer better and ask any questions you may have, as well as practice some natural poses in front of the camera.
