As soon as possible! The second you decided on your wedding date and booked the wedding venue it's time to book your photographer. The best wedding photographers in Bloemfontein are usually booked 6 to 12 months in advance. So its vital that you book your photographer well in advance to prevent disappointment.
Firstly go and have a look at the photographer's portfolio and see if the style of the photographer is really what you are after. It's no use to book a photographer that shoot old-fashioned photographs when your actually looking for something more relaxed and perhaps one or two funky photos.
Get a photographer that suites your style. Get 2 or 3 quotes from wedding photographers in Bloemfontein and start comparing their quotes and see who offers the best value for money. Also make sure that you are 100% comfortable with your photographer. You must feel comfortable in front of the lens as well as with the person behind the lens.
Remember, your photographer must be able to take the lead on your wedding day and ensure that all those special moments are captured. It goes without saying that a professional photographer will use professional photography equipment. Make sure this is the case.
Note: Package 3 already includes a second photographer.
The bride must please ensure that all the accessories are available and ready when the photographer arrives. These include:
- Wedding dress
- Wedding rings and any other accessories that the bride wishes to be photographed
We often experience that a crowed room can easily overwhelm the bride and especially if she is already running late. Nobody wants a photograph of an upset bride! The rest of bride's maids and family may enter the room as soon as the photographer has finished taking the necessary photographs of the bride. It might sound strange that we mention this, but wait until this happens to you on your wedding day.
The bride must preferably be ready 30 minutes prior entering the chapel/church. The photographer needs a few minutes to take individual photographs of the bride and if time allows it, of her bride's maids as well.
This is why its so important that everyone commits to the time schedule provided by the photographer to ensure that all the special moments are captured on your big day.
