The choice of your wedding photographer can truly have a lasting impact on the quality and quantity of your wedding memories. Generally, the wedding photography is not an area where you will want to try to save a few pennies. The quality of your wedding memories is very important - generally the wedding album is an item to be treasured over many years and can be used to evoke memories of the wedding. Clearly, it is really important to have a capable wedding photographer to take the pictures of your wedding. However, this must also be balanced with cost considerations. This article is designed to provide some tips on how to select a wedding photogrpaher at a reasonable cost in order to have an excellent wedding album.

The first thing to think about is that a quality photographer can cost a lot of money. An entry level package from a professional photogrpaher can run anywhere from $900 to $1400. If the photographer is a photographer that has a big name and often shoots high profile weddings, you may be required to pay 4, 5 or even $6,000. If you are considering going with one of these big name photographers, you should remember that they are in high demand and you will need to reserve their time a long way in advance of the actual wedding date. Generally this is the case for any wedding photographer during the high season which includes that late spring and summer months from May to September.

When you are looking at wedding photographers, you should request to see a sample of their recent work. This should include an album or proofs from a recent wedding. This is a way to determine whether the photographer successfully captured the overall tone of the wedding in his/her photographs. You should also ask about the wedding photographer's equipment to ensure that the equipment will be suitable for the job. also make sure that the photographer or an associate will be able to compile an album for you. The most important thing is to make sure that the wedding photographer is capable of doing the job.

In terms of cost, there are a couple of things to keep in mind. First, that many photographers provide several packages and then may charge for the development of additional proofs that are requested beyond the basic package. Many times, people underestimate how many pictures they will actually need and want mroe pictures after they see the proofs. Moreover, parents and relatives often request proofs or even their own wedding album. The best solution here is to lay down all expectations up front and make sure that the parents or family members pay for their own albumns or pictures (unless you would like to give it to them as a gift).

When you are looking at many photographer's agreements, you will want to look for clauses that designate the wedding photographer as the exclusive photographer. Otherwise, you will not be able to use any relative to shoot a portion of the wedding. You should also be up front with how long you want the photographer to stay and set the hours as many bill per hour. Many people have the photographer leave after about an hour of so of the reception to save money. Finally, if you are dealing with a larger company and you want a particular photographer, you should make sure it is specified in the agreement and that the company can not substitute a junior photogrpaher the day of your wedding.
