Wedding photographers in the West Midlands

I’ve always dreamed of having a big white wedding since I was a little girl. Sometimes I can’t believe it’s coming true. I met Adam 5 years ago through a friend when I lived in Walsall. I fell in love and have known for a long time that I wanted to marry him.

He proposed last year when were on holiday in Benidorm. It was just perfect. I knew he was the one so I accepted. Ever since we have been organisng and planning our big day.  We plan to tie the knot in 2012 in the West Midlands, as we love it here. We plan to have a big wedding reception and have invited over 150 guests. We have so much still to arrange like my dress, bridesmaid dresses, catering and a wedding photographer in the West Midlands.

All the costs are mounting up, we have budgeted for £15,000 for the whole event including insurance and honeymoon.  I’m hoping we can find a reasonable caterer and wedding photographer  in the West Midlands area. The dress is going to cost me over £800 and I don’t even know where we are going on our honeymoon as Adam wants to keep it a secret for me. He knows I love Spain, especially Benidorm, Tenerife and Lanzarote. Lets hope he treats me to somewhere warm. I don’t want to go somewhere to exotic, I’m not a big fan of foreign food but I do love a good Korma.

Wedding photographers in Oxfordshire

Oxfordshire is a gorgeous English county I went their once on a day trip with my family and I loved it. It was really posh and quaint especially all the posh shops and the beautiful countryside.

I am getting married near there in the summer of this year and have been making plans.  I would like to find a wedding photographer in Oxfordshire ASAP so I can discuss my requirements. I’m having a Hollywood themed wedding so want all the glitz and glam that goes with it. I’ve never been to America but would love to have a celebrity style wedding. Our honeymoon has been booked and we are going to Las Vegas it looks amazing, I’m so excited about going.

I have started looking online for various wedding photographers in Oxfordshire and want to find someone who is accredited and has a lot of experience of weddings and as I want a Hollywood theme. I want someone who is really creative that can create striking and elegant pictures with that wow factor. I want to have pictures that I’m proud of and can show to our future kids and our family and friends.

We are on a real short budget so can’t afford to spend thousands on a photographer. I need someone who can work with us and give us a really good deal. I did not realise it would be so difficult to find a wedding photographer in Oxfordshire.

Wedding photographers in Norwich

My dad has been a wedding photographer in Norwich for over 30 years now. I recommended him to a friend of mine and she was really impressed with dads’ portfolio and hired dad for her big day.

There are loads of wedding photographers in Norwich, choosing a good wedding photographer might seem a simple task, but it should be done with thought and care. In my opinion you should first of all decide on the type of photography you want. Do you want traditional images like your parents and grandparents or something modern? Would you like your wedding pictures to be in colour, sepia or black & white?  Some photographers offer something called reportage photography, is this something you have considered?

You should always get quotes from a couple of photographers, I would say at least 3 or 4 so you have something to compare.  Always ask them to show you their own work and if possible try and meet them in their studio so you can see them at work. Some companies use freelancers and may employ a few photographers so always check whose work you are being shown.

I would also check to see if the photographer covers more than one wedding per day. A good photographer should only cover one wedding a day. Do you really want someone who is clockwatching? Has the company won any awards and check if they are registered with any professional organisations like BIPP (British Institute of Professional Photography). Plus book well in advance, a good wedding photographer will get booked up really fast.
