What are the most frequently asked questions concerning one of the most important days of your life? You’ve just booked the church in the centre of Luton and now its time to consider all the other aspects of the day. One of the most technical aspects of your wedding will be the photography and most people have a number of common concerns.
Q. What to look for in a wedding photographer?
A. The wedding photographer is someone you feel comfortable with; they will be at the wedding for the whole day, meeting family and friends.
Q. What should I look for when viewing their album?
A. Find out when they were taken and if they are by the photographer who will be attending your wedding. Some studios have a number of photographers working for them. Make sure you are happy with their style of photography. Do you want traditional or documentary pictures, should it have a formal feel or are you looking for a relaxed documentary of the day.
Q. Which is better, film photography or digital?
A. They both are capable of recording the day equally as well. Digital photographs are easier to circulate to friends and publish online and for previewing on the day.
Q. How early should you book the wedding photographer?
A. Depending on when in the year you are planning on holding your wedding, summer months are particularly popular and good photographers are fully booked years in advance.
Q. What special effects can you have?
A. It is worth meeting with the photographer before the day and agreeing a shot list of things you want included. You should consider discussing lighting effect, colour or black and white, close up shots and locations.
Q. What is a proof?
A. The proof is either a photographic sheet with thumbnail miniatures of your wedding photographs or a Jpeg file online or DVD similarly saved for you to examine and choose the photographs you like.
