The everlasting memories that are forever in the photos from your big day mean it’s a hugely important decision to make. Here, Kevin Lue has given the Polka Dot Bride his top tips in selecting the RIGHT photographer for you.
It’s OK to shop around, however Kevin says the key factors to keep in mind are:
- You feel comfortable – it’s important that you feel you can be yourself in front of your photographer; you feel relaxed, can talk freely & feel that you all “click”
- You’re drawn to their previous work – they have a wow factor, are unique or their work really connects with you and your vision. “A picture speaks more than words ever can”
- Don’t discount a photographer if they’re initially over your budget – It’s important, but shouldn’t be the focal point in deciding on a photographer. Sometimes price can be negotiated, so don’t be put off straight away if it’s too much of a stretch on the hip pocket. “I always think, money can be earned back, but moments only happen once.”
Ms Zebra says: Choosing the right person to capture your big day is a HUGE decision. They are in charge of how everyone will remember those magic moments. Luckily, Kevin Lue (and his beautiful photography) have some great tips to finding the “one”!
