There are thousands of photographers all across the country who claim to be the best Wedding photographer around – they are all vying for your custom with no obvious way of distinguishing one from the other.


So how can you identify which one is for you? This article takes a look at some of the key things to think about to help you identify who will be behind the lens on your Big Day.


Firstly, and perhaps most importantly, you should find out if the photographer is available on the day. Photographers get booked up well in advance, and whilst your Wedding may be a few years away, don’t presume that they will be able to fit you in. It is rare that a photographer will take on more than one job each day, but just in case, you should also confirm the times they will be available from and till. If it is imperative that you have a photographer who is there from first light till last dance, then you may have to shop around, pay a little more and provide them with a hot meal. That said, you should be able to find some who can accommodate. Once you have confirmed their availability, you can move on to the next stage.


It is true to say that first impressions count – so what are yours of them? If you think they are a bit scruffy, a bit rude and far too opinionated when they are fighting for your business, then chances are that they won’t be much better on your Big Day – to make matters worse, your guests will probably form the same opinion of them. A good photographer should make you feel at ease and relaxed in their presence, they should be able to organise even the most complex of shot, inform people what to do in a polite and courteous manner and be well presented. With this in mind, if the photographer you meet (make sure that you see/have seen the photographer who will be there on the day and not a deputy) is none of these – then move on quickly! If you like them, both in looks and manner, then they have passed the second test.
