Choosing a photographer can of the most important wedding details. In the digital age we live in it often feels like there is a never-ending list of options. This means that selecting a photographer can be a bit overwhelming, so how can you choose?
Right as promised earlier this week, here is wedding number one fresh on the blog. Let's rewind to August, in the beautiful wilds of Scotland, at Knockengorroch Farm, where two lovely people had a festival wedding like none other I'd attended before.
Thinking that you may need a second photographer included in your photography package? Two is better than one right? The answer totally depends on you, the size of your wedding and what you want covered, and what is possible with the time and venue(s). I usually work alone but I'm always happy to add a second shooter onto any of my wedding photography packages.
Considering having an unplugged wedding? What's that you say?! To put it simply it's where you ask your mates that for just one day, they get off their phones and other electronic devices that take photos or record video during your wedding.

People often ask me what I LOVE to photograph most, and honestly my answer is always the same: people. They are why photographing weddings is the best thing ever to me, there's so much to shoot and no two are the same, even at the same venue. I love all weddings, no matter what kind. That said, I do have a wedding bucket list of sorts - here's a few off the top of my head. . .
I want to tell you a story, one image - one big wedding. Why you say? Simple, every image is important. Each and every one of the little moments I photograph that make up a couples wedding day. The bits in between are just as important as the 'I do's', the speeches and the first dance. Whether it's a simple detail or something as simple as a hug that passed by in an instant.
Last week another wedding photographer said I should think about investment into a photography festival, specifically SNAP Photography Festival. I'd already heard about it and was already convinced how UTTERLY AMAZING it would be to go. . .
