Are you getting married in Klerksdorp, Potchefstroom, the North-West Province or anywhere in South Africa? Who will be your wedding photographer? Weddings are special occasions which can be captured professionally just once and cannot be repeated and your Wedding is no different.
Your Wedding day is special and your Photography should be special too. You wedding photos are some of the very few things that remain after your wedding and years later you want to look at those most special moments an be reminder of how special the day was…don’t let anyone ever take that away from you!
Here is a list of some of the things you should consider when looking for a North-West wedding photographer.
When selecting a wedding photographer you are selecting more than just another photographer for your wedding day, you are hiring a wedding photographer that will be with you, your family and your group all day on your wedding day. Personality is a huge part of the selection process and should not be overlooked or discounted in any way.
Your Klerksdorp wedding photographer’s personality can set the tone for your entire wedding day and your bridal party. Ultimately it can impact your wedding photography altogether. You will more than likely be working with your wedding photographer for a year, or longer in some cases, by the time you factor in your engagement session and post wedding photography and albums.
While price is always a factor when selecting your wedding photographer, it should not be the only thing that matters. All too often we hear horror stories from brides who made a decision for their wedding photography based purely on price. It turns out to be foolish in the end. When it’s all said and done, your wedding photography will be all you have to remember your wedding day by.
* Wedding Albums
What will you do with all your images from your wedding photographer? Most people opt to place them in a beautifully designed wedding album that your wedding photographer should provide you with. Don’t underestimate the importance of a wedding album from your wedding day. This is your first family heirloom and your one keepsake you will have forever to remember your North-West wedding.
When selecting a wedding photographer you should look for an album that best represents you and your new family. Wedding albums come in all shapes and sizes. Questions you should ask your Klerksdorp wedding photographer 1) How many pages come in the wedding album? 2) How many images will be in the wedding album? 3) What cover options, such as leather, are available for my wedding album?
Something often overlooked when selecting a wedding photographer is the number of hours that will be offered during the coverage of your wedding. Typically you will want your wedding photographer to be with you to document all the moments of your wedding day. After all, that’s what you are hiring them for. That being said, typical coverage requirements for your wedding day should be about 8-10 hours.
Be careful here, some wedding photographers offer cut-rate prices by offering you less than adequate wedding coverage for your day. These become hidden costs and once you realize it, it’s often too late.
