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.
