Breaking down the process of choosing your photographer into more manageable parts, to ensure you are not overwhelmed
It is your big day so everything has to be flawless, and in order to capture everything perfectly, you need to choose the best photographer for you. On your big day it could be argued that choosing the right photographer is one of the most important decisions you will make. This is because this is the person who will be immortalising all your memories, and you want everything to be captured in the way you have always imagined. But with all the other decisions and problems you have to deal with before your wedding, how do you make the job of choosing your photographer as simple and effective as possible? There are a few simple guidelines to make sure you and your photographer are on the same page…
Photo details: I took this image of Tamzin and Aaron at Prested Hall in Essex. They wanted a few shots away from their guests and on our visit to the venue before the wedding I suggested we grab a few minutes on the day to walk out into the fields to get this type of image. Tamzin remembered her wellies on the day which was handy as it was very wet and muddy underfoot! For this image I used a single flash with a radio trigger situated behind the couple on a light stand. I was shooting closer to them when I saw the potential of including Tamzin's bridesmaid and backed up to include her and more of the landscape to give the photo more depth and a greater sense of atmosphere.
About the photographer: I am documentary wedding photographer based in East Sussex and available UK wide and internationally.
