How to snap up the one…

We asked Sussex-based wedding photographer Ben Porter how to find the perfect match when it comes to your all-important photographs. Here's what he had to say.

How to snap up the one…: Image 1 Credit: www.bporter-photo.comIn my mind there are three really important factors in choosing your wedding photographer. Firstly, do you like their style? This is vital, because it defines how your wedding looks when you take those trips down memory lane in years to come – Instagram-style filters may be fashionable now, but will you be happy with them further down the line?

Secondly, do you like the person? It may sound trivial, but ultimately this person will be spending the majority of your special day with you, for all of those intimate and emotional moments that you want captured, they’ll be right there. Did they put you at ease when you met them? Will they be a friendly and calming influence on the day?

Lastly, are they professional? You really do want someone you can depend upon, and that feeling should be evident from the very first meeting. Have they provided contract information explaining exactly what you will receive, how quickly you will get your images after your wedding, and what happens if they are unwell on the day?

If they tick these three boxes, it’s hard to go wrong.
