Planning a wedding can seem like a never-ending process. There is a lot to think about and probably everybody you know has an opinion on exactly how your big day should go. And all the while, you know that the wedding day itself will come around in a flash and be gone in a heartbeat. That’s why your wedding photographer is so important! Luckily there is plenty of great local talent to choose from, and a good New Forest wedding photographer will help to capture the day and create memories that will last a lifetime.
Find a photographer who puts you at your ease
Whether you have known your photographer for years or you have found them through a Google search, they will be with you all throughout this special day. Some of the most beautiful pictures that a wedding photographer can catch are of those quiet moments and shared looks between loved ones.
For this reason it’s really important that your wedding photographer puts you at your ease and makes you feel comfortable. So when meeting a potential photographer ask yourself whether you want them with you for 12 hours solid, especially during those private moments!
Check out their portfolio
A wedding photographer should be a good investment in time and money, so it is really important that you like their work! Most photographers, like Lemontree Photography, will have previous examples of their work on their website or online portfolio so that you can check out their style before you even get in touch. Every photographer will have a different eye – a unique way of working and their own personal touch that brings life to their pictures. While the photographs taken at your wedding will of course be unique, the photographer’s previous work will give you an idea of what to expect from them.
When you are surrounded by the people you love best, time always flies. And when all of your favourite people travel from across the country, or even across the world, to celebrate your wedding, it might feel it’s impossible to spend time with them all as much as you would like to. The beauty of finding a great wedding photographer is that they can help to capture those little moments from your day that you want to remember, as well as the big ones that you will never forget.
