Nine Ways To Save Money On Wedding Photography

Weddings are memorable events couples and their families want to remember forever, and what better way to capture these moments than by a camera. Weddings may be gone, but the feeling of joy will always stay because of the wonderful moments captured on film. And photography expenses shouldnít be too high if you want to have the nicest photos on your wedding day. Here are some ideas to help you get started in producing great photos on a budget.

1. Hiring a professional photographer is the best option because he has the equipment, the experience, and the knowledge in this field. So look around in your area for professional photographers that suit your needs, and donít charge too high.

2. If you choose the above option, do a lot of research on the price, the portfolio, and the over all behavior of the photographers you selected. Donít just compare them on the price alone. Take note of his portfolio. Are the photos professional and outstanding? Observe his professionalism by asking his past clients (if you know one) on his punctuality and behavior. Did he come on time for their wedding? Were the arrangements made smoothly? Did they have any disagreements later on the price? Was he polite or bossy during the picture-taking? Asking questions not only about the quality of his work but also on his professionalism and personality will greatly determine your over-all satisfaction, and will ensure every dollar you pay him is worth it. You donít want someone you hired to act grumpy and ruin your important day, do you?

3. Book as early as possible, say 6 months from your day. This way you wonít have to worry about the other clients who might also need him on the same day as your wedding.

The Wedding Diaries: How to Get Married in Style Without Breaking the Bank By Laura Bloom, Richard Craze, Roni Jay from Amazon.co.uk

"If you're getting married soon or (like me) not for another year it is a must. It's funny, heart warming, thought provoking and above all a good read."

4. Hire a photography student in a nearby university. He/she is more than willing to take on your assignment and unleash his/her creativity. As much as possible have a look at his/her works first, and observe his/her personality as well.

5. Gather your friends on your pre-wedding party and have him take photos of you.

6. Make an arrangement to keep the negatives to yourself afterwards so you can reprint them and edit them if you like. You can even use the pictures to make personalized thank you cards later that show the guests on the wedding.

7. Have your guests take photos as many as they want by placing disposable cameras on the tables during your reception.

8. Have a talented family member take your photos. Nowadays because of digital cameras and photo editors, it is more possible than ever for an average person to take great pictures.

9. Ask for help from your friends who recently married. Advices from them will surely help you a lot because theyíve gone through what you are going through now. Ask for references, if they know of some photographers who fit your qualifications.

The first most important point to remember when setting a budget for your wedding photographer is to talk to your partner first, and determine your requirements early on and how many prints you want to make. Then seek for cost-effective alternatives. Do a lot of research, and compare your choices reasonably.
