A cautionary wedding photography tale
It’s tempting in these times of austerity to get a friend or relative to photograph your wedding. What could possibly go wrong? They have quite an expensive camera and one day they hope to pack in the day job and turn professional. You are actually helping them out. Doing them a favour as they get to build their portfolio. Please think again. There as so many stories appearing at the moment of people who have done just that and lived to regret it.
Take Jackie Sanderson and her new husband Adam. They were left with no wedding photographs after trusting the job of capturing their big day to their friend and ‘budding pro’, Ben Fagan. After the wedding Ben left the memory card containing their images in his wallet and a week later he was involved in a pub brawl and lost his jacket. Jackie and Adam returned from their honeymoon to discover that they had no photographs of their big day.
Don’t let this kind of thing ruin your wedding. Make sure you book a professional wedding photographer to cover your wedding
