It's all in the eye ...

The eye makes the photographer, not the camera….

Some words of advice to anyone thinking of booking a wedding photographer ... I had an enquiry from a lady the other day who wanted to know how much I charge for wedding photography. I told her (my price is no where near as high as some!) and she said that was way out of her budget. Apparently her friend got married lately and paid only £350 for a full day of photography, plus an album!!! Be aware!

There are an increasing number of people claiming to be wedding photographers, and undercutting the professionals such as myself. I studied at college for 4 years and have been in business for 13 years now. You pay for quality and experience. I am not saying everyone cheap is no good - all businesses have to start somewhere.....

But please do not just go for the cheapest option. Compare 3 or 4 different photographers in price, style, quality and package. Go and see them - who do you feel comfortable with? Make sure you know exactly what you are getting, and if you are on a budget, try and cut back else where first. The photographs are the one thing you keep after the big day and they need to be right. A decent camera does not necessarily make a good photographer....
