Pafos Wedding- Where The Journey Begins

Your wedding day is undoubtedly one of the most important days of your life. You will want to remember every moment of the auspicious occasion and what better way to do it, than by hiring a professional wedding photographer. There are many points to consider when choosing the ideal wedding planner in Pafos, for your special day. The inital step in the process when going abroad to get married is to organise the airport transfers to birmingham or any other major airport. Once this is organised you and your wedding party can travel together ready to start the celebrations abroad.

When to Book Your Wedding Photographer

Most professional photographers set their schedules a year in advance. So you will need to book a photographer between 6 to 12 months before your wedding day. Great photographers are easy to find as their reputation precedes them. Speak to family members and friends for recommendations of good photographers. Alternatively, you can speak to other members of your wedding planning party, such as the caterers, florists, limo drivers and venue managers. These people are naturally always involved in putting together weddings and would be able to refer you to great photographers. 

How to Shortlist Wedding Photographers

Every established photographer will have a website, consisting of portfolios of their best work. If you need to narrow down your search, start by visiting these sites and if you don't like what you see, cross these photographers off your list. Once you have narrowed down your list to about 3 professional photographers, ask to meet with them. This will not only give you an opportunity to see samples of their past and present work, but to discover the personality behind the camera. Hiring a wedding photographer that has a pleasant personality that compliments yours, will make things easier and enjoyable for everyone. 

The Cost of a Wedding Photographer

Not every wedding photographer will travel abroad although you may be able to hire one when you are abroad- some package deals include a photographer so keep this in mind. A wedding is not just an investment of time and effort, but predominantly money. The price is always negotiable, regardless of what you have heard and this is why you should know exactly what you are getting in your wedding photography package, before signing any agreements. Things to consider are the price of the wedding photography package, what type of package you are getting, how many hours of the day are going to be covered and how many hours in total you will have with your wedding photographer. This process involves close communication with your photographer. Find out about other options available in the wedding package aside from the traditional wedding album, like extra photos for family and friends, photos for your walls and photos on mugs, T -Shirts and magnets. Also make it clear that the photographer you book, is the one that should show up on your wedding day.

Your Final Decision

Insurance is always a topic of discussion when money is involved, so you should be clear about that. Also make sure to ask about backup gear for the wedding day, in case of an unforeseen circumstance and to ensure safe travel abroad. The equipment may need to be checked in separately or could have its own seat on the flight.

As always, this is not a decision that you should make on the spur of the moment. Interview as many photographers as you like, discuss possible candidates with your spouse, and try to find a photographer that you both like and most importantly, sleep on it.
