Edinburgh Wedding Photographers
Choosing a photographer for your wedding is one of the most important parts
of your planning. Once your wedding is over and you return from your honeymoon, you
won't have much to remind you of your big day so its important for many couples to ensure
that they have great wedding photos that they can look at for years to come...
Many good wedding photographers in the Edinburgh area get booked up very quickly, especially on Saturdays over
the summer months, so booking a wedding photographer is something that you should try to do as early as possible
in the planning. As soon as you have chosen your venue and decided on a date it makes sense to start your
search for a photographer.
There are lots of established photographers in the Edinburgh and Lothians area - you will actually find
that photographers from other parts of Scotland such as Glasgow, Fife and the borders will be happy to
travel to your venue in Edinburgh.
Here are a few ways to start your search for a wedding photographer:
- Attend a few wedding fairs. You'll be able to speak to a few different photographers and
get an idea of their style by browsing their photos from previous weddings.
- Speak to friends or family members who have been married recently and ask to look at their wedding photos
- Look in the Yellow Pages or the online yellow pages
- Search for wedding photography websites in Google
- Look in Wedding Magazines, in particular the Scottish Wedding Directory, which is normally free at Wedding Fairs.
Once you have made a short list of Edinburgh Wedding Photographers it's important to go and visit the photographer to get an
idea of his or her experience and to ensure that you like them. You will be spending a significant proportion of
your wedding day with your photographer so it is important that you choose a photographer that you feel relaxed with.
The photographer will normally let you browse through albums or online photos of his or her previous work,
show you the different albums and packages available to you, explain the pricing and answer any questions you
Before you visit the photographer it makes sense for you and your partner to have a think about what
type of photography you would like e.g reportage, traditional shots or a mixture of both. You will also
need to think about much you can afford of the photography. You can expect that most photographers will charge
somewhere between £500 and £2000 pounds depending on the package, with not many falling around the £500 mark!
