Guest Blog by Debbie and Becca - The Infinite Wedding Community

I am extremely excited to introduce a blog from The Infinite Wedding Community, all

about choosing the right wedding photographer. I know this is something all engaged

couples will find useful!

Thank you to Debbie & Becca, for letting me share this incredible advice with our

audience. Over to you two…

How Do You Choose The Right Wedding Photographer?...

Choosing the right wedding photographer is extremely important; in fact, it’s one of

the most vital tasks on your wedding to do list.

When considering your choices, it's crucial to find a professional who understands

your vision for your wedding day and can document it with style (such as – Pictures

and Petals.) You’ll also want someone you trust and feel relaxed with since he or she

will be by your side throughout your wedding day.

To help you find the right wedding photographer, we’ve put together a bullet list of

ideas to think about, and have also put the spotlight on one of our most favourite

photographers, Pictures and Petals.

What to think about when choosing your wedding photographer…

 Think about your style, are you going whimsical and bohemian or are you

wanting a chic and elegant wedding – consider this when you are doing your

research so you can work out if they fit with you?

 Look at their portfolio – bob along to their website and special profiles. Look at

the weddings they have shot, quality of images and how many weddings they

have been part of.

 Have they experience of the venue you are getting married at? – ask this

upon consultation with them and ask them to send some example shots.

 Have they a backup - what is their backup plan if they are unwell, or if there is

an emergency? What are their plans if they cannot make it? There would be

nothing worse than having a no show on your wedding day.

 Meet them first, take time to sit with a few photographers you like the sound

of. If everything FEELS right whilst you chat, then they're the one!
