If you are searching for a wedding photographer, I can only assume you have recently become engaged, so congratulations to you both!! If you are looking for a fun, relaxed wedding photographer in Hampshire, Surrey or the surrounding areas, then look no further!
I well remember the exciting, if somewhat overwhelming feeling of having a whole wedding to plan - there is so much to think of! Wedding venues, bridal flowers, the brides dress, bridesmaids dresses, the best mans suit, buttonholes, table plans, caterers, wedding cake makers, bridal jewellery, your honeymoon destination, and of course - your wedding photographer.
Of course, everyone is different, and every happy couple will have their own list of priorities, but I will say this; Once your wedding venue is booked, the next thing on your 'to do list' should be to find and book your photographer.
The most sought after wedding photographers are usually booked up a year or more in advance. Take your time when searching for your perfect wedding photographer, and don't be afraid to ask to meet in person before booking. There are many different styles of wedding photography and many different packages on offer, not every one will suit you.
I really, really LOVE a wedding! They are one of the happiest, most enjoyable days in a persons life and it has been a privilge to be part of so many of them. Don't get me wrong, it is hard work and we are often with you for 10-12 hours of your day, but from the excited anticipation of the bridal preparations in the morning, to the romance of the first dance in the evening, I couldn't imagine another job where you are surrounded by so many happy people :-)
When it comes to budgeting for, and booking your wedding photographer, I'd like to share with you what someone told me in the build up to my own wedding:
"Once the day is over, the dresses will be cleaned and stored away, the cake will be eaten and the flowers discarded, (or perhaps pressed by Granny!). All of these things form part of what will be an amazing day, but it is your photographer who will freeze time for you. It is your photographs that you will turn to time and time again, to relive your day for years to come".
