Cape Town wedding photographers

Choosing a Cape Town wedding photographer need not be a difficult task. Very often couples get so involved with the planning of the obvious details about their wedding, such as venue, dresses and suits, cakes, decorations, invitations, etc that they forget the importance of hiring a really good wedding photographer. It is important to remember that the photographer that you choose will have full responsibility for capturing all the special memories and moments of your perfect day. Bearing this in mind, you will want to make sure that you select the right wedding photographer, because there will be no second chances. If you hire a non-professional and your photographs are unsatisfactory, you cannot repeat arguably the most special day of your life.

Wedding photography is a particularly demanding type of professional photography. So it is really important that you select a photographer who has the experience and skill to make sure that everyone looks their best in your photographs and to produce top quality results. Remember that while your photographer may be experienced, it would be nice if he or she had a personality to match, as they will be spending a considerable amount of time around you on your big day.

Discussing the photography of your wedding with family and friends is almost always a good idea. Often they will recall a certain event where there was a special photographer present. If this happens to you, your choice of photographer becomes much easier.

If you have no recommendations you can visit the Perfect Wedding website to see a numbre of Cape Town based wedding photographers and some of their work. Once you have selected your short list insist on meeting them and seeing a portfolio of their work, before you commit. You can also discuss details about your wedding location and the kind of photos you want to have taken. You will also need to inform the photographer whether you want them to be present for just the ceremony or for the wedding reception as well. It is important that your photographer interacts well with you, to know whether he will interact with your guests on your special day.

Listed below are some questions that you may wish to discuss with the prospective photographers.

How long will you have to choose the photos that you require and how many?
How long have they been in business?
Will they have an assistant?
Will they be using digital or film?
How will they show you the pictures for selection?
Will they help you to choose the final photographs?
Will it be easy for friends and family to order reprints?
What are the costs?
Do they have any guarantees of the quality of the photographs?
What would happen if the date of the wedding had to be changed, or cancelled?

Once you have asked these questions of your shortlist of prospective photographers, you should have a good idea of which photographer you want to choose for your wedding. Make the commitment and be prepared to leave a deposit with the selected photographer in order to reserve your wedding date. While it will take a little time and some research there are more than enough professional wedding photographers available in Cape Town to feel spoiled for choice.
