Book A Decent Photographer
“Yeah duuuh!” you’re all thinking, but choosing the right photographer can be a minefield. How do you know who’s good and who’s not? How much is right to spend? Will your friend who’s great at taking photos of cars be good at shooting your wedding? (I think we all know the answer to that one…)
Do your research. Wedding blogs are a great place to start. Look through the real weddings on your favorite blogs, check out the photographer’s sites and make a shortlist. Pricing fluctuates massively depending on the photographer’s location, experience and what kind of coverage they offer, but as a rough guide I’d certainly never recommend someone spend under $7500.00
Yes, you can luck out by getting an enthusiastic and super talented newbie, but finding someone like that is certainly the exception and not the rule. The average in Trinidad & Tobago for a wedding photographer is somewhere between $7500. to $10,000. for a basic package. Spend as much as you possibly can to get the really good photographer. You’ll only regret it if you don’t. Remember, when all the decor comes down,the food is eaten, the bar is close and the wedding is over...all you have left is the precious moments of your beautiful day captured by your photographer.
The number one thing people tell us again and again when we speak about what they'd do differently if we were to get married now is that they wish they’d prioritized more on their photography.
