How much should I budget for a wedding photographer?

Wedding photography is something that will last for ever, however the cost for this can vary depending on location, package and also the photographer you hire. Read our guide to wedding photography costs here.

I found a photographer that I love, but they are not local, will they travel?

Don’t worry, most photographers will happily travel be it across the country, or hopping on a plane to your destination wedding. Depending on the location in the UK you may just have to pay their travel expenses, if you are getting married abroad then it would be travel costs and accommodation, however get in touch with the photographer and see what they advise.

How do I get in touch with the photographer?

You can contact the photographer via the contact form on our site, or if you click through to their website and use their contact form, just make sure you mention you found them on Your Perfect Wedding photographer.

What questions should I ask my wedding photographer?

When you have found a photographer you love and everything feels right then you may be worrying there are things you need to ask that you haven’t thought about. Your photographer should put you at ease and answer any question you have, even better they should have already answered any questions you may have before you have even asked just in general conversation. Take a look at our article 15 Questions to Ask your Wedding Photographer to help make sure you have everything covered.

Should I provide food for my wedding photographer?

Ask your photographer, they could be working all day ensuring every moment is captured, some photographers will bring their own food and like to get away for a few minutes, to have a break, while others may appreciate and enjoy a small meal at the venue. Read our article Do I Need to Feed My Wedding Photographer? where photographers have left their views and opinions in the comments too.
