There are numerous photographers in The Lake District and Cumbria, you will probably only realise how many when planning your wedding. There are some fantastic photographers in the area and you may find it very hard to make the decision about how to choose your photographer, below are some points which could help.
The most important thing is to have a chat with your photographer, ideally meet them but this is not always possible. If you are from outside the area, have a chat on the phone with your photographer. You will get a feel for their personality and should know from just a short conversation if this is the sort of person you would like at your wedding.
If you cannot meet with your wedding photographer have a look at the images shared on their website and social media. Are there a good selection of images? Are they regularly updated? You should be able to see a good selection of work, not just their ‘best’ wedding. Is this the style you would like for your wedding?
If you are in the area arrange a meeting with your photographer, they should be flexible on a meeting time to fit in with you. If you can meet with your photographer make sure you see a good range of wedding albums. The wedding albums should show full weddings, the album the bride and groom received. This will show you if their photography has a consistent quality for each wedding and throughout the wedding. Some photographers will shine in some areas more than others so this will show the quality of photography they provide throughout the day. If you look at a selection of albums you should see a good assortment of weddings.
Once you have decided you like the photographers work and are happy to book them you might like to ask a few more questions:
Do they have insurance?
Are they familiar with the venue, if not would they be happy to visit the venue before your wedding?
Are they part of a professional body?
Do you have additional equipment on the day if there is a fault?
