Top Wedding Photographer related questions
Popular photo opportunities include getting ready, the ceremony, flowers and bouquets, portraits of the bridal party and family, speeches, cake and cake cutting, bouquet throwing, table settings, first dance, and the start of your reception. Discuss any specific photos you know you want with your photographer to make sure they’re not missed.
For small weddings and elopements, 4-8 hours of wedding photography captures most of your day and guests. Larger weddings with more guests and location changes between the ceremony and reception venue may need 8-12 hours.
2-6 weeks is about normal, but it can be more or less than this depending on the service you and your wedding photographer agreed to.
The sooner, the better. Whether your wedding is a year away or in a few weeks, as soon as you find a wedding photographer you like who’s within your budget, book them. This stops someone else from snapping them up on your date, so you can never book too early.
Look at their portfolio to get a sense of their photography style and see if it fits with your wedding vision. Check what’s included in their prices and packages (number of hours of photography, the number of photos you can expect, editing services, etc.) and if possible, set up a phone call or meeting to make sure you’re a match.

What does wedding photography include?
To get the wedding photography you want, it’s important to look carefully at the service offered. Each photographer has their own way of working. You might find differences in the length of time bookings last, the number of photos you get, and the editing process. Here’s what you may experience when researching and booking photography for your wedding:
Consultation and engagement shoot
To get the best photos on your special day, your photographer might arrange a meeting or call, or even an engagement shoot. This is an opportunity to get used to each other, share ideas about the type of photos you want (so you can create a shot list) and practice some poses. Your photographer will also need details about your venue, the day’s running order (so they can plan on being in the best position at all the right moments), and details for the family and bridal party shots.
On the day
Booking your wedding photographer (or photographers) for the entire day will mean they’ll begin capturing key moments in the hours before your ceremony. They may shoot you getting your hair and makeup done, dressing for the occasion, and capture images of your accessories such as your shoes, bouquet and jewellery. They may also do a “first look” shoot of the bride and groom or photos of the bride and groom with their wedding parties and family members before the ceremony. Of course, you don’t have to have this. You may only want your wedding photographer to shoot from the ceremony onwards, and that’s okay, too.
After the service, your photographer will ask you and your partner to leave your guests for a short while so they can take photos of just the two of you. This is your official wedding photoshoot. Before calling you away, your photographer will have scoped out the most picture-perfect locations around your venue (taking lighting and backdrops into consideration) and will lead you there for your photos (whether you walk or drive). Once they have the photos they want, you’ll rejoin friends and family for any group shots. Depending on how many hours you’ve booked your photographer for, they’ll remain at the celebrations to capture all the special moments throughout the speeches, meal, and reception.
Photo editing and delivery
Most wedding photography services include photo editing and retouching. The number of edited images you get depends on the package offered by your photographer. Editing involves enhancements like colour balancing, adding effects, and touching up the image so it’s picture-perfect. Photos are delivered using a secure online gallery, on a USB, or sometimes both. Once you get your photos back you might also ask your photographer about other services such as custom album printing, canvas printing, or getting digital prints.

Lisson Grove, Greater London
25th Mar 2021
My fiancé and I would like to hire a photographer/videographer for our very small and intimate wedding in Central London in late April. We will not need the photos or video to be edited, just provided to us on Google drive or similar in raw form. We would like the following: • a video taken with a static camera on a tripod of the ceremony. This is just for sharing with friends and family who can’t come, so it doesn’t need to be fancy, just a clear image and audio. • photos taken of the ceremony • photos in front of the venue afterwards, and perhaps on streets close by, with couple, and a few with guests (only 7 guests in total) • Maximum 1.5 hour commitment We would like the photographer's style to be very relaxed, warm and natural.
