Your wedding day is one of the most important days in your life and it is only normal that you will want photos to remember your special day by. If you have done some research you probably know that wedding photography is quite expensive. Any qualified wedding photographer will offer several different photography packages, each photography package will have a different price of which each package will offer something different.

Don’t always accept the first photography package that you were presented with. Here are a few tips how to choose the best wedding photography package:

1. Determine what type of budget you have for wedding photography. As usual it’s all about the budget; always ensure that you have sufficient funds set aside to pay for the wedding photography package.

2. Shop around; speak to different photographers about the wedding photography packages that they have to offer. You could even request a detailed pricelist from each photographer that will make it easier to compare quotes.

3. If you already have an idea of the type of photography package that you want for your special day, speak to the photographer he or she may be able to accommodate you.

4. You shouldn’t necessarily always choose the cheapest quote or the most expensive one for that matter always insist on customer references. This will allow you to determine the quality of work that the photographer delivers. Any one that owns a camera can pretend to be a professional photographer.

5. Before opting for a three or four hundred photo package that includes a wedding DVD, stop and consider how long it would take to pose for all those photos. The last thing any wedding couple wants is to spend the majority of their wedding day posing for photos instead of enjoying the most important day of their lives. Make sure to specify at which intervals photos should be taken; at the engagement, before leaving for the bachelor or bachelorettes party or on the wedding day itself.

Be sure to hire a qualified photographer that is reasonably priced and has wedding photography packages that will suite your needs. The last thing you want is to end up with hundreds of wedding photos that are blurry or out of focus, after all you don’t get married every day.
