- Don't take chances. You can't retake the photographs so make sure you get a qualified professional photographer who is a member of a professional organisation with his / her own studio.
- Look at lots of photographs by the photographer. Make sure you see complete albums and not just the best shot from lots of weddings.
- Look at how the bride's dress is arranged. You want a photographer who knows how to do this quickly and properly. You will spend a lot a money on you dress. You want it to look stunning.
- Look at the family shots. Inexperienced photographers will often fail to organize groups properly resulting in awkward and unsightly arrangements.
- Leave enough time. As a general rule you need to leave roughly 4 hours from the start of the ceremony to the start of the meal plus driving time. This may seem excessive but it is better to have a little extra time to spend with your guests instead of having to rush and maybe miss out on some photographs.
- Have a Plan B. If you are planning an outdoor location for your photographs consider the possibility of bad weather.
- Consider the time of year. If you are getting married during the winter months remember it might be dark as early at 3.00 pm. A wedding at 1.00 pm or 2.00 pm may mean little or no outdoor photography.
- Finally...pick the photographer you like the most ...he or she will be inches from you on the most important day of your life
