Choose the Wedding photographer you really want

Once you have viewed a few photographers, go with the photographer you really want rather than the one you can afford. If you’re on a tight budget see if you can get a custom package or a discount. It is better to have a small package from a quality photographer. It’s better to have 20 or 40 first class images rather than say 100 mediocre images. The Wedding photographs whether viewed in an album or framed prints will be viewed for many years to come, possibly handed down through the generations. So make sure you get it right!
