|Q||We've just got engaged so how do we go about booking a good wedding photographer?|
|A||Danielle Newton says: The quality of the photographer's work should be what captures your eye. If you're drawn to a particular photographer then ask to see their full portfolio because they should be able to offer candid and posed pictures along with other styles. Be aware that images should not be heavily edited, they should be natural.
Enquire whether they have a contract and the relevant insurance because all good photographers will have this in place. To get the best images of the most important day of your lives it's important that you both feel comfortable and relaxed with your chosen photographer. Ensure you meet them in person or via a video call before your big day to sense whether you have a connection.
Your photographer will play a big part in the organisation of your day. I have tweaked the hair for bridesmaids, dressed the bride and looked after children during my career as a wedding photographer. Taking photos is only a part of it so if a photographer does not have the necessary experience, the most important moments can be missed. Ask if they're willing to visit your venue and call or meet with your wedding coordinator because a professional will do all of this to ensure that their couples don't need to worry.
Most of my bookings have come from word of mouth from my previous clients. A good photographer will be able to give you some testimonials.
