When choosing a Tasmania photographer to capture one of the most important days of your life, there are many more things to consider than just the cost. While budgeting is definitely a key factor throughout the entire wedding planning process, price should never be the sole determinant for such an essential part of your special day.
A wedding photographer's experience, style, equipment, and editing skills should all be well-examined before making a decision-as should their character and personality. Here is an in-depth list of things to consider before handing over that security deposit to a marriage photographer in Tasmania.

While every photographer will have their own unique style, most can be defined either as photojournalistic, traditional/classic, or fine art. With a photojournalistic style, the photographer strives to capture the day as it unfolds and tends to capture more candid photos than other styles. A traditional or classic-styled photographer will concentrate on the wedding milestone events like the first dance, cake cutting, and bouquet toss.
When calculating your budget, keep in mind that the cost of a professional wedding photographer and videographer usually accounts for about 10% of the total wedding budget. The price can depend on what deliverables and services are expected, including the time length of shoot, the number of photographers, an engagement photography session, rights to reproduce images, professional editing, and portfolios.
Personality and Character
No matter how much you like the style or the quoted price, if you are not comfortable with a photographer's attitude, do not hire them! We have heard horror stories of snobby photographers who just do "their thing" and don't really care about what the bride and groom want. Your wedding day will bring its own whirlwind of excitement and chaos, so make sure the person you select to follow you around all day long is personable, stress-free, upbeat, and maybe even funny!
