Its important, you have some kind of vision and style you require for your photos before you have that first meeting with your photographer, they are similar to an artist, such as Van Gough or Constable, their work will be so completely different, it will be the same with photographers, it's a good idea to have a look at their work before you arrange a meeting with them, most photographers have a website, with samples of their work. There are a selection of extras that couples can bolt on to their package, ranging from prints, the framed photos and albums.

Album design,   is an art form that's worth investing in. Album prices vary greatly, depending on the style, number of pages and cover, An average spend is from £120.00 to ? Some photographers can charge up to, £1000.00 for this service, it's so important to find out the cost beforehand.

Second shooters, can incur that extra cost, so it's worth considering if you need one or not. The advantage of a second shooter is that you'll get more coverage of your big day, one is snapping you sipping champagne while you get your hair done, the other can capture your groom and his pals suiting up; you'll need to weigh up the cost implications with how much you want them photos from all aspects of the day.

Another thing, to consider is whether you want to go old school and have your photographer shoot in film. Film photography is fantastic for capturing the nuances of light, shadows and colours and makes for gorgeous images, but is more expensive than shooting digitally. Think about whether it is worth the extra cost, or if you'll be happy with digital images.  

Engagement shoots, Many couples opt to have a pre-wedding or engagement shoot with their photographer; if you're wondering why you should do an engagement shoot, there are some good reasons; It’s a great opportunity to spend time, in a relaxed environment with the camera, without the eyes of a full wedding party upon you, It gives you an opportunity to get to know your photographer a bit better before your wedding day and understand how they work, and that time to have some fun and try some new ideas that you may have before the day. Prices are around £100 for a pre-wedding shoot, this might include some prints, ask your photographer, and they will go over this with you. Engagement shoots feel like a big expense, and it’s understandable if it’s not in your budget, but they can be invaluable to help you relax on the day, and just have some gorgeous informal images. If you’re keen to show off your pre-wedding shoot photos, why not incorporate them into your big day, with a guest-signing frame. With this you would select your favourite image from the shoot, have it made into a large print and framed with a deep mount, this is then on display during the wedding reception and guests can sign and leave short messages on the border.  

Hidden costs, As with all aspects of your wedding, it’s important to be aware of hidden costs, so you’d be wise to have an open chat with your photographer before booking them. Most photographers should be really clear with you and what their package contains, I would advise you to go through your pricing brochure, quotes and contracts really carefully and ask questions if you need to. It’s so easy to be drawn to a photographer by what seems like a good price, only to find out later on, that the price quickly escalates. This can really leave a bitter taste in your mouth, especially if you don’t realize, until you have committed and signed contracts.  

Accommodation If your photographer isn't local to your venue, you may need accommodation or cover their travel costs, as some photographers charge by the mile if your wedding is outside their catchment area. Travel costs are usually included within the local area, but be sure to check this before booking. Every photographer will charge differently, but distances in excess of this might incur a fuel surcharge or an overnight stay. It’s always a good idea to ask your photographer if they need accommodation, It isn’t wise for us to drive home for hours after an exhausting day, or risk being late for a wedding if we have to negotiate lots of traffic the morning of your big day.  

Additional hours, Another hidden cost to look out for is extra hours of coverage, Many photographers work to a strict time limit and any additional coverage over that time is charged by the hour. There is nothing wrong with this approach, all photographers have their own pricing list. As long as it is clear, and you know all the facts in advance there won’t be any disappointment, speak to your photographer before you book if you are unsure. 

Food and drink, The matter of whether you need to provide your photographer with food is a common puzzle for brides, I would say don’t be shy about bringing the issue of food up with any photographer you go to meet. Many photographers ask for food as part of their contractual terms, and it's something you may wish to budget for as a result, every wedding is different and has different pressures on couples, but your photographer will always be grateful when couples provide this. From your perspective, giving your hard-working photographer a hot meal (and, crucially, some downtime in which to eat it and to recharge) "is a wise move - they will be much more refreshed and energized for the rest of your wedding.

A great photographer, knows how to work with the lighting, location and weather (yes, even rain and snow!) to bring out the best of the day. They also work their magic to edit their snaps, selecting the most perfect shots and digitally enhancing where needed, all resulting in photographs you will treasure for a lifetime.



Myself and the team at john young photography would like to be the first to congratulate you,
