Find a photographer who will always make sure that everyone has a fun and positive experience. That means listening to what you want and how you want it… being professional, and last but by no means least enjoying the occasion.
London, UK (PRWEB) October 25, 2012
According to online wedding information source Ideal Bride Magazine, the average cost of UK weddings in 2012 is in excess of £20,000 and that out of this amount, couples spend an average of £950 on photography and video services. With expenses at such a high cost, more and more couples are cutting back on truly important wedding services, such as photo and video documentation. To help UK couples get the most out of their budget, pro wedding photographer David Jones will be releasing a guide so that UK couples can easily choose a creative wedding photographer to help them preserve memories of the most important day of their lives.
According to Mr. Jones, skill is an essential quality that couples must consider before hiring a wedding photographer. He advises couples to research first and inspect portfolios to adequately gauge skill and also to determine whether the photographer’s style suits their tastes.
Mr. Jones emphasises that style is a feature that couples must prioritise when choosing photographers for their wedding. He states that there are two styles commonly used to document weddings: traditional and reportage-style photography. According to Mr. Jones, “Reportage wedding photography involves little or no intervention from the photographer — they simply catch what is going on at the time without getting directly involved.”
Traditional images, on the other hand, are unlike reportage photos since taking these requires involvement on the part of the photographer. Mr. Jones explains that it “is a formal style of photography whereby images are created by the photographer by giving direction to the couple.”
Mr. Jones relates that reportage photography is growing more popular especially with the advent of faster and less bulky camera equipment. He explains why this style is quickly becoming a favourite among UK couples:
“Digital cameras allowed for a new way of thinking and a completely different approach to wedding photography, allowing the whole wedding to be captured and thus tell a complete story. I myself love this style of photography as it captures the essence and emotions of the day,” he shares.
He adds, however, that traditional images still have a role in today’s weddings: “Your wedding day is probably going to be the most amazing and memorable day of your life. Why not spend some time creating stunning and romantic images of you both together, in the best way possible, on your best day ever?” he asks.
“It’s also a great way for you both to take a breather after the excitement and emotions of the ceremony and enjoy some time alone together to take it all in,” Mr. Jones adds.
Lastly, Mr. Jones recommends that couples find a photographer they are comfortable working with: “Find a photographer who will always make sure that everyone has a fun and positive experience. That means listening to what you want and how you want it, always being friendly and polite, always being punctual, understanding everyone else’s needs, working with everyone else, communicating effectively, being professional, and last but by no means least enjoying the occasion,” he shares.
