"Thanks to the internet, meeting your supplier in person isn't essential. In fact, 30 per cent of couples who hire us do so without a face-to-face meeting. Before booking, take the following into consideration:

Recommendations

  • Look at previous examples of their work, and make sure you like their style.
  • Research reviews on social media to see what other clients think.
Personality
  • It's important that you feel relaxed on the day, so find someone you feel comfortable around.
  • If you're finding it difficult to meet in person, you could organise a FaceTime session or a phone call.
Experience
  • Check that they have a back-up plan in case the equipment fails.
  • Ask about insurance. We provide ours in a package along with questionnaires about timings and shot lists.
Cost
  • Don't make a decision based on budget alone. Remember, you get what you pay for! Some photographers may be cheap, but that will show in the quality of their work.
  • Look for a professional who offers payment plans and doesn't push for a deposit straight away.
Venue recommendations
  • Don't be afraid to look beyond your venue's suggested suppliers. If the company hasn't shot at your location before, don't panic! Any professional can adapt to any setting.
  • Go with your gut, and make sure all of your concerns have been dealt with before booking."
