Weddings are a time of joy and love. Little girls seem to dream of their future wedding date by the time they start talking. Weddings are something that most everyone knows about years before it is their time to walk down the aisle. When the time does come, there are all sorts of planning that needs to be made. One of the most important however, is finding that perfect photographer that will capture perfect memories on one the most memorable days that many people will have.
Almost all professional photographers have a web site, with a large gallery of photographs. This is an excellent way to study their work, style and creativity. If you like what you see, make an appointment to meet up with the photographer. You will be able to view sample albums, and discuss your individual requirements. It’s important to view albums containing complete weddings, not just a few hand picked images.

essex wedding photographer s need to have immense creativity, imagination, observation power, a passion for the camera & the concept of marriage, ability to mix with new people and capacity to work hard. If you have it all, be sure you will make an awesome Wedding photographer. However, besides these very basic points, you need to keep some details in your mind.
Try to figure out what your maximum budget is and then what you’re comfortable signing at. Eliminate the photographers who are simply out of your budget. If someone is a little out of reach, it never hurts to ask; photographers may lower their asking price for any number of reasons. Maybe you’re getting married in a spectacular venue, maybe your date is one they wouldn’t otherwise fill, maybe you are the coolest couple ever. However if your ceiling is $2,000, I’d avoid emailing the photographer who starts out at $5,000. Realistically, you probably won’t get an affirmative response.
Start searching, collecting the names of friends, family and vendors, and search for local wedding photographers websites. Spend a little time on sites, read reviews, and imagine that you see in pictures. Narrow your search to 3-5 choices.
Previous Work – Ask the photographer to see a full album from a wedding. Often in their portfolios they only show the best work, what about the other photos? Is their quality equally good?
My advice to you is to fully understand this simple concept. Even if you are using fully automatic units there may come a day when you have to set the zoom manually, it is then you need to understand it.
