7 Tips for Securing the Best Photography Services for Your Wedding

Having figured out your wedding venue with the date and the bridal team requested, you ought to find a photographer. It is good to have an expert snapping the photos because the memories made on your big day should last a lifetime.

With many photographers around, you may find yourself talking up a lot of time finding the best photographer. Here are tips to help you in your search:

  1. Ask Your Friends

Sometimes the best people to help with your wedding planning are your friends. Married or not, they will give you a list of potential photographers whom you can hire. Their experiences should help you in selecting the best photographers.

  1. Avoid amateurs

In as much as they are passionate, their lack of experience could cost you. Would you rather lose all your wedding photos and have nothing to see after the wedding? Obviously, your answer is no. So get experienced wedding photographers.

If you already have an apprentice photographer, then you must include a studio and echelon photographer. Photographs are only processed after the wedding and this means that there are no second chances. The photographer must be experienced and trustworthy.

  1. Consult your wedding planner

If you have a wedding planner, consult them on their packages as well as the services offered besides planning. The best wedding planners will handle all your wedding planning and ensure that all that is needed at the venue is ready.

Florals, entertainment/ music, photography and even videography is included in packages of most wedding planning companies. Therefore, make this an option. The benefits of using a wedding planner include saved time and money.

  1. Stick to the budget

You have to stick to a budget when planning weddings. The whole budget will be tipped negatively by a huge margin when one item on the budget goes above the set limit. Wedding photography prices will vary depending on the level of photographers you decide to use.

Echelon photographers will charge more. However, if your budget matches their price, then they are the best for you. Wedding planners with in-house photographers will charge less than what you would spend if contracting the photographers directly.

  1. Have your photos copyrighted

This may not be a big deal to many but having your images copyrighted adds value to the photos and also ensures security of your wedding photos. You will have spent a lot on the photos and having them copyrighted gives you rights over them.

Eventually, you will have to sue anyone who uses your photos without your permission. The copyrighted photos will have more meaning to you.

  1. Ask for complimentary services

When your photography services are offered by a wedding planning company, they will have complimentary services added to them at discounted prices. Videography, hair & makeup, florals and the DJ could be added to the list.

This saves you money. You should ask the wedding planner of any services that can be paired with the photography if this isn’t in their list yet.

  1. Go through the reviews

Sourcing for a wedding photographer online? Go through the reviews they have received on their websites. Negative and positive reviews should be considered and checked with wedding photographer online platforms. Deals that seem too good should also be reconsidered. Conduct interviews with the potential photographer to gauge their suitability.

In conclusion, stick to the budget and choose quality of work over ‘unbelievable’ discounts. Consult with you wedding planner on the available options regarding the range of services they are offering and how they will fit into your budget.
