Telling the story of your wedding day from start to finish makes all the difference visually when designing your ‘unique wedding album’ and helps your designated designer at Andy Oliver Studio record your day completely in one beautifully hand crafted album. This set of images of Lee and the boys just before they started getting ready really helped set the mood and the pace of the whole day and tied in really well with pictures we got later in the day. Does it matter and is it worth booking and paying for a ‘professional wedding photographer’ to record your day? some people would say no…. all I want are a few pictures at the church, to others their wedding day is the most important day of their lives and take the role of photography very seriously.
Lets face it professional ‘wedding photography prices’ by pros that ‘know their craft’ aren’t cheep, people with camera are, why is there such a vast price difference between photographers? this could be one reason.. ‘their not photographers’, don’t be fooled, quite often they are wanting the images for a portfolio or just to make a few quid on the side, I don’t condemn people at all who want to learn a new craft and join the photography fraternity but is it really worth letting them practice on you?
The type of album supplied to a client can be at the very core of the price they charge as well as the fact that many hours are spent on the whole project, both Jenni and me calculated the we spend around 70 hrs on each wedding, from initial consultation – pre wed shoot – wedding photography – viewings – editing – album design ……etc
Sorry for the slight rant above only we recently had a lovely lady in to the studio in a bit of a state with her self because a friend of a friend of a friend had done her wedding photography and lets just say they hadn’t turned out quite as she was expecting. We decided on this occasion to try and help her out.
Ria had spent a lot of time choosing her unique head-dress, so I only thought it apt to squeeze it into as many closeups as possible.
How to photograph a wedding in the rain….. take a brollie.
Choose a ‘wedding photographer’ with experience.
