What kind of photos do you want? Do you want traditional, posed photos, or more candid, documentary-style photos? Once you know what you’re looking for, you can start narrowing down your options.


Wedding photographers can range in price from a few hundred euro to several thousand euro. It’s important to set a realistic budget so shop around, see what the market value is.


Meet with photographers in person and ask them about their experience, style, and pricing. It’s important to feel comfortable with your photographer and to be confident that they can capture your special day in the way you want.


Once you’ve narrowed down your options ask to see a full wedding that the photographer has shot. This will give you a good idea of their work and their ability to capture the day’s events.

Ask your friends

Your friends are your friends for a reason, they’ve got your back. If they had an awesome photographer at their wedding they’ll be more than happy to make the recommendation. Likewise talk to your vendors, most likely they’ll have preferred photographers that they like to work with too.

Hire a pro

You want a reliable photographer, believe me, you don’t want the stress that they won’t show up or that the photographs won’t be what you expected. By hiring a professional you have peace of mind that they have experience shooting weddings and can help you out along the way.

Book them!

Good wedding photographers book up quickly, so it’s important to book yours as soon as possible. This will ensure that you get the photographer you want and that they’re available on your wedding day.
