Budget UK Wedding Photography Ideas

Posted by on May 6, 2013 in Managing Wedding |

We all want the best photos of our wedding day, but hiring a popular, world-wide known wedding photographer can be quite costly. What if you don’t have enough money for that? If your planned budget for wedding photography is between £200 and £500, what you should look for if you want to have the best wedding photo album for your money?

What about hiring a wedding photographer who can photograph two, three hours for this price? Of course, this is if you are looking for someone with professional equipment, a training behind, good post-production skills and a nice portfolio. Some very professional and creative photographers will agree to cover a small weekly wedding for about £500. So, avoid Saturday wedding and look for an available and good wedding photographer in Hampshire, for example. If you, however, want someone to cover your whole wedding day, look for a student photographer in the final year or a recently graduated photographer who is just starting up a business.

You have to keep in mind that in case you hire a professional for only couple of hours, your wedding photo album would be incomplete. On the other hand, if you are hiring someone less experiences, he/she might also miss some important moments of your wedding day. For obvious reasons, a novice wedding photographer might not possess proper equipment, only one or two lenses etc.

If your budget is about £200, you are certainly aware that your wedding photographer is someone not so skilled, insured and equiped.  However, still you can find a way to have several wonderful images (our grandmothers did not have too many photos, did they?). Find a photographer to have a portrait session of you and your beloved one. Or opt for one hour of ceremony shots.
