Having breathtakingly beautiful wedding photographs is an absolute must for your big day. It is for this reason that most couples do not mind splurging out a little bit more cash without feeling an ounce of guilt.
It is true, however, that hiring a wedding photographer in different areas will vary slightly, depending on the quality of the photographer. On average, the cost of hiring a wedding photographer in Birmingham is between £1,250-£1,750. When you look at this amount, you may wonder if it is worth it, but trust me, it definitely is. The last thing you want is to regret not having a spectacular wedding album.
This will vary with each couple. You will need to find a photographer that is on the same wavelength as you and who is able to deliver your vision. The first thing to look out for is the style of the photographer. You can pick up on this by looking at their portfolio. You will then be able to pick up on their skill set and if you are happy with it. Also, make sure to see the type of reviews that previous customers have left; reviews never lie.
Finance is another important factor to take into consideration. You want to feel comfortable with the amount of money you may potentially be spending on your wedding photographer. The more time you take to find the perfect photographer, the more chance you have of finding the perfect one! Trust your instinct.
Deciding on whether or not to pay for your wedding photographer’s meal is something that will be different for each couple. Usually, if you have organised a meal for all of your guests, then the general rule of thumb is that you provide your photographer with a meal too. If you have not provided your photographer with a meal, they may feel as though you do not appreciate their effort.
Also, some photographers work a very long shift as some weddings last multiple hours. If this is the case for your wedding, then you want to ensure that your photographer is a part of the experience (this will definitely show in your wedding album.)
The short answer to this is yes! There are so many beautiful landmarks in Birmingham where you can celebrate your special day and have the greatest photographs taken. After all, it is all about the scenery, and there is nothing more spectacular than being surrounded by a beautiful environment and by the people who mean the most to you.
Once you have chosen a landmark to take photographs at, all you need to do is inform your photographer so that they can check the landmark out themselves and figure out how to get the most creative photographs.
Of course, this will depend on the experience of your wedding photographer and how quickly they work. Still, the general idea is that a wedding photographer takes approximately 100 photographs per hour of shooting. For a wedding, you can expect to receive between 400 and 600 photographs.
If your wedding is shorter than 5 or 6 hours, expect to receive a lower amount of photographs from your wedding photographer. It may be worth asking your potential photographer beforehand so that you have an idea of what you are paying for and how many photographs to expect.
As you may be aware, trends come and go, and this is why it is so important to keep up with the ever-changing world of wedding trends. For 2022, the wedding trends include having lush greenery in your décor, making your reception a real experience for your guests, and having a hand-painted wedding cake with signature food.
There is also a more simplistic trend of less is more. So, instead of elaborate décor, the trend is apparently to have minimal décor and attire that looks classy and elegant. Having bougie food and a unique wedding cake seems to be the centre of a gorgeous wedding. When there is food, there is happiness.
