Hiring a good photographer in a budget is a tedious job, until and unless you are not clear about your requirement. Since, the wedding season has just geared up so, besides making other arrangements, picking the best photographer by a bride and groom becomes an important discussion amongst the families. While making the preparations, we always tend to fix a stipulated budget for photography and expect the photographer to provide the best wedding photography in the set cost.
To keep your wedding photography expense under the budget, here are some useful tips,
which you may consider fruitful for booking the best photographer for your dream wedding:
Get a detailed insight to wedding cinematography
Cinematography is a film shoot of your wedding, which normally includes the interview of the bride/groom and their families. It may also cover short cut or highlights of your adulthood memories or your meeting story with your fiancee. So, make yourself clear whether you require such cinematography video for a single day or all the three days of your wedding function. This may reduce a bit of your photography expense.
Pick the Candid than the traditional photography for small gatherings
Wedding usually is a 3-4 days affair, which includes different functions for the bride and groom. Sometimes, there are the moments, where you have gathering of 70-100 guests. In that scenario, it would be best to go for candid shots rather than the traditional stage shots.Making an option for a candid photography will cover the natural clicks of the bride and groom along with their families and friends, which is highly preferable and affordable.
Book a single photographer from both the sides
It is an excellent approach to hire a single photographer rather than two for the wedding.
This will help you to share the photography expense jointly. But you need to do a good research for hiring the best professional photographer for the same.
Make the booking for a photographer in advance
Once you get your wedding date fix, make it a point to hire the photographer in advance.This will help in avoiding the last minute chaos as well as reduce the wedding expense. It may also give you additional benefits of selecting the best photographer in budget after you make yourself satisfied through prolonged research.
Get photograph or video edited from the same photographer
Whenever you plan to engage a photographer for the wedding, make sure to pick the one and the same person for the entire function. Give him the complete responsibility of creating or making the finalised print of the album and video. This will make you to cut down the extra cost on your wedding photography.
Hire a photographer with 5 to 10 teammates
If you have a wedding function with a gathering of 150 to 200 guests, it is best to go for a
photographer having 5 to 10 professional teammates. This will help in the optimal coverage of the functions with least botheration. However, if you have gathering of 500 plus guests,then it is important that you select the professional photographer with 20 or more teammates. This will turned out to be a nominal expense during the wedding functions shoot.
However, these days you may come across many photographers providing set price or
packages for the wedding, while there are few, who prefer to give customised package for the photography or cinematography to the clients depending upon their requirement. What you have to do is just be aware of the prevailing rates/prices of the wedding photographers in the market and selects accordingly.
