The photographer you choose matters a great deal. Not just in terms of providing a romantic and beautiful collection of wedding day images – their professionalism before and during the day is also important.
What should you ask a wedding photographer in Surrey?
Clear prices for wedding photography
Make sure, when you ask about the cost of wedding photography, you get a transparent quote with everything included. No hidden extras or nasty surprises when you select images for your wedding album!
When you contact Katarina Nichol to discuss the wedding photography type you want, she will discuss the cost of wedding imagery for your specific marriage celebrations. You will have a clear budget and the reassurance of unique and stunning wedding photographs.
Traditional images or a documentary wedding photographer
Getting a price and a creative plan for your wedding photos also depends on what sort of collection you want. Simple portrait wedding photography and a few group shots, or a truly original wedding storybook?
When you contact Katarina, she can provide advice on wedding photography services, as well as relaxed, friendly insights on how to stamp your personality on your wedding photos.
Arranging photography at your Surrey wedding venue
Whether you’re shopping around for a Guildford wedding photographer, Epsom wedding photographer, Wokingham wedding photographer, or Redhill wedding photographer, local knowledge does help. It enables the photographer to optimise the locations for traditional and creative shots.
For example, is your Reigate wedding venue perfect for photos, or would somewhere nearby be the ideal place for the bridal party and family group photographs?
Katrina Nichol is a documentary wedding photographer you can rely on for local knowledge. (Though she would be delighted to quote for creative and natural wedding photography elsewhere in the UK too!)
She will take the time to consider your venue or venues, to find the best backdrops for wedding couple portraits or breathtakingly romantic images in those rare quiet moments.
As an experienced and skilled Surrey wedding photographer – and Kent wedding photographer – Katarina has an eye for fresh and breathtaking backdrops too!
The best Surrey wedding photography packages
A leading professional wedding photographer should be willing to capture outstanding imagery from throughout your day. Not missing a magical moment, such as:
From the time you slip your dream wedding gown on and laughing with your bridesmaids, to the moment you arrive at the Church or wedding venue.
Joking around with groomsmen, nervously waiting for your bride, and that elated moment you see her walking towards you.
Discreetly and reverently, the best wedding photographers capture the highlights of your ceremony including moments you may miss during your deeply meaningful marriage ceremony.
From your arrival at your Surrey wedding reception venue to your first dance and the cutting of the cake, leading wedding photographers won’t miss a thing!
This is often when the most candid wedding photography takes place, and a skilled professional can take natural and gloriously happy images of your post-wedding party!
Important little details
The best Surrey wedding photographer will also capture the beauty and ambiance of the event, from your wedding flowers and venue decorations to those special details that make each couple and wedding unique.
Keep in mind this day will fly by for you. Investing in the best wedding photography means you can relive the day, but also see the things you didn’t see! Including those times when much-loved friends and relatives were revelling in the celebrations or preparations.
This is why using a highly contemporary and alternative wedding photographer like Katarina Nichol is so invaluable. She goes beyond the posed and pre-planned photo opportunities, offering vivid and exuberant wedding reportage.
How a wedding photographer should work
Whether this is a grand marriage event at a stately home, a deeply religious church wedding ceremony or a simple registry office marriage ceremony, your photographer should treat the event with the same attention, care and creative flair.
They will be ever-present on the day, so you need to find a documentary wedding photographer who becomes part of the happy experience.
