Looking for a Photographer:

Personal Recommendations: Have you been to a wedding recently? What did your friends think of their photographer? As a Yorkshire wedding photographer the the greater part of our clients come from personal suggestions from either Bride and Grooms who have used us all, or from Venues that know the quality of the work we produce and the fantastic value for money we offer.

Google And Other Lookup Engines:

A quick search on any of the major search engines will produce a mind numbing amount of choices. For example, if you type into Google the search conditions "Wedding Photographer" it will return millions results. Just going through each outcome would take you years, so as a general rule of thumb, stay with those on page 1 or page 2. Typically the reason for this is simple: If they are on page one or two then they have taken the time to ensure that their website is properly designed, optimised and placed, to ensure that their products or services are easy to find for potential Bride and Grooms.

Choosing A Photographer

As soon as you decided on a date, have arranged your wedding venue and received confirmation then guide all other services required for your wedding day as fast as possible. Leaving it to the last minute to book your wedding photographer is not a good idea.

Many Bride and Grooms start looking for their professional photographer the day they get engaged.


First thing to do is check out a photographers website but do NOT be fooled into thinking this is the be all and end all. Constantly focus on the images and not the website design. These days for a few hundred pounds you can have a real classy looking website designed. Never forget that an online site only shows this content that the photographer WANTS you to see. You will only generally see the best images, the ones they want to use to showcase their talents so take a good look around the website. Take a look and see how many different weddings you can see. If there is merely a couple of, have they only photographed a few marriages? Also how much information does the photographer give you? Are they upwards front of the prices or do you have to go in and see them to learn how much they charge? Do these cards give you specific detailed information about their services?

Likewise be VERY wary if they say they are an associate of a "Professional Trade Organisation". Some industry organisations only require photographers to pay an gross annual subscription cost to join then allow the photographer to use the Organisations trademarks on their website. Certainly some organisations have virtually no joining requirements, you do not even have to own a camera and your Nana, who has no idea about photography, could become a member of if she wanted. Do your homework and look for Trade Organisations carefully as they are not all the same. Get more information by following the link Candid Wedding Photographers in Chennai.

Some are for full time experts only and Members are required to undergo assessment, inspection and have insurance coverage documents checked, others simply let you pay a nominal amount and declare you to definitely be a "Professional Photographer". Keep in mind that the digital photography industry is not regulated and anyone can state to be a "photographer".
