It can be all-too-tempting to cut corners when it comes to photography or ask a friend to step in to take a few snaps, but your photographs are destined for mantelpieces, social feeds and family albums for years to come. What may seem like a huge investment on the first quote will be worth every penny on the big day and for years to come.
Just like paying for any professional service, you’re costing in someone’s years of experience and artistic eye. But how much should you be budgeting for photography? Anywhere upwards of £2,500 is a good ballpark figure for an experienced wedding photographer.
While on your hunt for the perfect match, The Story Of. recommends using the following ‘credibility criteria’ to shortlist a few suppliers :
- Consider their years of experience in the industry
- Review their customer testimonials on google
- Have they been published in any leading editorials?
- Have they won any photography awards?
