Wedding Photography.




I trust you will already have read the discerning guides to the better Wedding Photographer.  I like to take a personal pride in my Listings and they are probably amongst some of the finest to be found on eBay.  However in making your choice for a Wedding Photographer ask yourself just what are they going to do for you on your big day.  Most of these characters have just brought a Digital camera and are sporting a bootleg copy of Photoshop and all of a sudden they think they have written the book on the subject.  Read between the lines,  high priced merchants ripping you off because you believe that anything under a Grand can't be any good.   The next step is  to acquire a  Flash website,  it never fails to impress the ill informed.  Never mind Google-bot knows better, they always get the cold shoulder in the rankings.  Well the bottom line on this is they have little business experience and as far as their practice as a Wedding Photographer goes all they want to do is to turn up at your wedding to take your Photograph in return for a stack of cash.  I cannot remember the last time I saw a Photographer who was prepared to publish his or her terms of Business or even to publish their Wedding package prices. 
If you have a Photographer who really understands the importance of your day it will show,  and it's not by the old yes sir no sir approach.  You need your day to run as smooth as possible,  make sure your Photographer has all his or her kit duplicated for your own sake.  How quickly can they deliver your proofs and just how much attention to detail are they prepared to pay to your day. Last but not least is your Wedding Album, I have now abandoned the Tradition Album in favour of the new Digital Wedding Albums, they are more flexible and allow your Photographer to be more creative.  Don't confuse the word creative for a shedload of sideways shots trhat are best placed in the dustbin.  Being creative means producing shots that are pleasing not off beat.
While on the subject of shots ask you Photographer exactly how many shots he or she will throw away,  it's sometimes up to two thirds of all shots taken, I have heard of any thing up to 1000 shots being rejected out of a total of 1500.  That means if your guests were expecting to find an image of themselves at your Wedding it stands two chances out of three of being rejected.
 Sadly service is a thing of the past,  keeping a few boxes of confetti in your camera case to hand to guests because they happened to think that all confetti has been banned can make all the difference.  Just make certain that when you book for your day, ask exactly what they are prepared to do for you, your partner and Guests, after all you are paying them, make sure you are going to get the service you are looking for.
Good Luck A.
