Why choose a professional wedding photographer

You sometimes hear people say wedding photography is so expensive and wedding couples may be advised to get a friend to undertake their wedding photography or maybe uncle Bob has got a new camera, so why not ask him - it will cost so much less!

These comments are usually made with the belief that wedding photography is too expensive - but is it?

Apart from the fact that Uncle Bob or a friend will probably have zero experience of actually photographing a wedding, and as a result may miss some of the "never-to-be-repeated" key moments of the day; they will probably be lacking many of the essentials, like back-up cameras, lenses, batteries, memory cards, working knowledge of the best places to photograph at the venue, etc and almost certainly won't have public liability insurance, which many venues will insist on!

So please find below a brief summary of some of what really goes into professional wedding photography!


Here's just some of what you'll get...

Use a professional photographer

Don't forget - your photographs are normally all you will have to look back on; your flowers fade, your food gets eaten, the venue gets used by others, the hired suits go back - It's just your photographs that survive, not just wonderful memories for you, but as an heirloom for generations to come!

Don't look back with regret - Use a professional!
