Many couples choose to keep the costs of their wedding low by having a friend do the photography, if you are considering this, then please take my advice; cut the costs somewhere else and have a professional photographer, in my opinion they are essential.  Once the day has passed ,the dress is packed away and your honeymoon tan is fading, your wedding photos are all you have left of that amazing day.

Your friend might have taken some nice photos in the past but are they really skilled enough to capture your precious wedding day in a way you will want to treasure forever?

I have spent ages with couples trying to find one decent image so they can have at least one photo of their wedding day on the wall in their house. I have seen collections where the bride has a 5 mile an hour road sign behind her, the perfect loving look is ruined by a tatty old car in the background, the photo of the three cute little bridesmaids have the venues bins behind them. None of these were noticed by the ‘so called photographer’ and don’t get me started on the photos after a few glasses of fizz, let’s just say a drunken photographer doesn’t get much worse!

It is truly heart breaking to see these couples when they realise that apart from memories, all they have are some dodgy photos and an album full of blurred, wonky or just plain rubbish photos, and how they wished they had cut the costs elsewhere and spent the money on even the most budget friendly package offered by a photographer.

So please don’t let this sad couple be you, your wedding day is a once in a lifetime experience, surely you want to be able to treasure those precious moments for the rest of your lives, and gaze back at those beautiful photos with fond memories.  So take a recommendation, do your research and look at your photographers past work, to ensure that you chose a skilled craftsman to capture your special day!
