You should just book him right away
I think if you are looking for a wedding photographer with more of a documentary style and Kristian is free, you should just book him right away.
Booking was easy, interacting with him pre-wedding was easy, and he turned up on time - but hopefully any good wedding photographer will offer that. He was great on the day - lots of our guests said things to us like 'Kristian seems nice!'. He blended in, so we didn't feel like we were having our picture taken all day.
However, what really sets Kristian apart are his technical/creative photography skills. He literally creates hundreds of images that are well composed (by that I mean composed in a creative, clever way), make good use of natural light, and - most importantly - capture the emotion of the moment. This means when you look at the images you are transported back to that moment, and feel those emotions again.
Kristian is not the cheapest wedding photographer out there - and if you just want someone who will turn up on time and take a nice set of photos, then perhaps you don't need him... BUT - people are right when they say your wedding day is over in a flash and all you are left with is memories and photographs. We are so happy we paid a little bit more to have a set of images we will cherish and look at again and again.
