You’re engaged! Our top tips on choosing your wedding photographer
After deciding on the style of photography you like and your budget, it is likely that you have a list of potential photographers that could fit the bill for your wedding. But how do you choose?
Today we want to share a few of our top tips on how to choose the wedding photographer that suits your style and wedding day perfectly.
1. Are they experienced?
Also worth considering is whether they have they shot at your venue. This certainly isn’t necessary; however it is an additional bonus if they have! You will be able to see images of weddings they have taken there, and be confident that they will know the best places and locations at the venue for some great shots. Take a look at some of the exciting places we’ve been for wedding shoots on our Venues page.
2. Do you get along?
Don’t underestimate the importance of liking and getting along with your photographer. For most, having your photograph taken can be a nervous experience, and throw in the emotions of a wedding means you should be confident your photographer will do their best to make you feel happy and comfortable. Remember: your photographer will be with you for the majority of your wedding day, and the more comfortable both of you are with the photographer, the better the photos will turn out.
3. Are they popular?
Testimonials and reviews can reflect what a photographer is like to work with, as well as how happy people have been with their photos. If the photographer has experience, then they should have a lot of testimonials and great references! Check their social media reviews as well as their website to see what their previous clients’ thought.
We’ve worked with lots of lovely couples over the years – you can read some of their stories on our Testimonials page.
4. Do you love their work?
Seeing a photographer’s actual photos can show you how experienced and versatile they are – just make sure you can view a complete wedding, not just their best shots, to give the best impression. You are looking for consistency, you want to make sure the style that attracted you to the photographer’s work flows through the whole album.

5. Are their packages suitable?
Pricing is a key factor when choosing your photographer, and so it is important that you are able to have the images and products you like at the price-point you can afford. Many photographers have set packages to choose from for wedding bookings, with a variety of add-ons and post wedding prints and albums. The key here is to look for flexibility and ensure that you will be able to order items after the big day.

Jane & Rogers Wedding At Hassop Hall
As regular readers of our blog will know, we went to Hassop Hall in Derbyshire a couple of years ago and really enjoyed it, so we were very pleased to accept this invitation to go back for some more wedding photography.
This time the bride and groom, Jane and Rogers, chose to have the actual reception in the nearby Holy Trinity Church and then the following meal and so on at Hassop Hall. Church weddings always have a certain ethereal ambience to them and this was a perfect setting for the now married couple as they were visibly beaming with delight whilst giving their vows.
I’ve compiled a selection of photos to visually summarise the day for you!
