You’re getting married – yay!
You’ve done all your homework and planned it all out seamlessly: the venue, the cake and centrepieces, your dress, the caterer, etc.
There’s one aspect to weddings that can truly make them memorable, however, and that’s photography. And even though it can be very tempting to ask your cousin to pull out that new DSLR camera he just got, not hiring a professional wedding photographer is a decision you may live to regret.
Whenever there’s a special moment, we’re just predisposed to getting pictures taken and videos made, innit? Your wedding is one of those defining moments that demand a need to capture, preserve and even enhance memories that you and the entire family can cherish many years later.
After all, you want to be able to look back on your big day fondly with high-quality photos that bring all the memories flooding back in vivid detail.
Many couples find themselves in a bit of a frenzy as the big day approaches: Should I hire a professional photographer for wedding, or should I just save a few pounds and ask my Uncle Mark to do it? Is there any guarantee that I’ll be happy with how the photos turn out?
Smart couples hire a professional photographer to do their wedding photography because they have a very broad skillset, which ensures that you feel completely natural and at ease while photos are being taken. In fact, you hardly notice they are there. This is actually a good thing – a very good thing. Something you probably can’t get by going down the Uncle Mark route!
A wedding photographer is someone who is trained to tell your love story in unique and heart-warming ways. And by hiring one, it might be the best decision you’ll ever make. Just make sure that you get in touch with a reliable wedding supplier who can provide you with a wedding photographer who understands what you want out of your photos.
Are you afraid that hiring a wedding photographer might break the bank? Don’t be, because wedding suppliers will offer you a plethora of options and depending on your needs, your photographer can be had for anywhere between £500-5000 or more. However, some couples have dished out as much as £10,000 to £20,000, but then again, their wedding photos look like something right out of a Vogue magazine.
This is where a local wedding supplier comes in. They will sit down with you to understand what you want out of your wedding photos.

Wedding planning is stressful enough as it is. You certainly don’t want to see amateur-level photos that don’t do justice to your big day.
