It goes without saying that if you are arranging your wedding you want everything to be as perfect as possible. One of the best ways to do this is to make sure that you are organised well in advance and give yourself plenty of time to get things arranged, it will make the whole process much less stressful for you.
However as well as giving yourself plenty of time, you need to make sure that you choose the right suppliers and people to help you with your big day! Whether you’re talking about waiting staff, catering menus, photographers or anything else you need to make your day run smoothly, you are going to want to make sure that you use only the best services.
Choosing Who to Work With
When it comes to choosing suppliers to help you with your wedding, don’t rely on their sales pitch. Rather than just take their word for it you need to do a little research. Of course, what you are looking for depends very much on the service you are looking at – so how do you choose the best wedding photographer?
Simply type a search into Google for your area, e.g. “Fife photographer” and you should find a wide variety to choose from, now your research can begin!
What Style of Photos Do They Take?
First of all you need to check the style of photography that they are most skilled in. You’ll probably find that most photographers will concentrate on main styles of photography so you need to make sure that this matches up with what you had in mind for your wedding photos. Don’t worry if the first photographer you speak to doesn’t seem to be the perfect match – just keep looking because you are bound to find someone that can cater to exactly what you need.
Do They Offer Any Other Services?
It is worth checking to see what other services they offer and whether this can help you out in other areas too. For example you get lots of photographers that offer videography services too or photo booths with props to use throughout your wedding reception. Of course these only add value to your package if they’re items that you would have bought before so make sure you know what you want from your wedding photographer first.
What Do You Get For Your Money?
It should go without saying that you want to get the best value for money. Try to have a read through of their services or speak to them about what they can do for you. At the very least you are going to want to check what parts of your wedding they are going to be taking photos of and making sure that everything you want is listed. As well as the main ceremony you might want to look at wedding preparation photos, wedding reception, photos of your guests, even pre wedding photos. Make sure you know exactly what you are getting from your package before you sign up, so you know you are going to be happy with the end result.
What Is Their Portfolio Like?
As much as value for money from a service like this is great you also want to make sure that you’re getting high quality photos. You only get once chance to take photos of your wedding photos so you want to be confident that they are going to do a good job. Look at their portfolio and read testimonials so that before you commit to them taking photos of your big day you can feel sure that they are the right people for the job.
