General notes when booking any photographer
Anybody can call themselves a wedding photographer. The best way to ensure the one you book has reached a required standard, is to ensure they are registered with one of the two professional photography associations. These are the British Institute of Professional Photographers ( www.bipp.com ) and the Master Photography Association ( www.thempa.com ). As well as being qualified, members all have professional indemnity, which is essential if something goes wrong.
You must meet your photographer before your wedding. It is very important they have details of specific images required, as well as the style of pictures you are after.
Ideally, meet them at the planning stage, so the correct amount of time can be built into the day’s schedule for photographs at the different locations.
You must ensure the photographer knows your family structure, particularly if step-parents are involved or close family members have died. Without this information it is very easy to create an embarrassing moment on the day.
Bride and grooms often ask about black and white images, if your photographer is using digital equipment then any image can easily be converted from colour to black and white on a computer. With film images it is still possible but more difficult.
Ensure you understand the total cost involved with any photographer by knowing the prices of reprints and presentation albums. Couples sometimes spend more on print and enlargement orders after the wedding, than the fee for the day itself.
Photographers are in a position to help recommend other wedding services, we see which are good and bad. CLICK HERE for James's list. If you don't feel happy asking your photographer for advice, then you have chosen the wrong photographer!
