When you and your partner plan your wedding day, photography is high on the list of requirements. This is your special day, full of memories for years afterwards that needs to be treated sensitively by the photographer.

Only a professional photographer can do this, a person who has an instinctive knowledge of the camera which will bring the best out of the wedded couple and their guests.

With the widespread use of digital cameras now it is tempting to ask family or friends to take the photographs. However they may not have the necessary detachment, equipment or eye for the best shots a professional will have.

A professional photographer knows how to use aperture, shutter speed and ISO settings to find the best shot time after time. The photographer will know how to use light to their advantage and instinctively know when flash is required. What is more the professional will have the SLR cameras, flash guns and lenses which are necessary to bring the best out of the people and occasion. He or she will also have the social skills to gain the best group shots which are favourites for the album or photo book, and of course know when to take the reportage shots.

Post wedding the professional will have the best software and facilities to edit and produce the shots you will come to love, complemented by the photo books and albums that will capture all those memories. So when you are planning your wedding, leave nothing to chance and hire a professional. Safe in the knowledge your wedding photography will be in safe hands.
