Hi all,

Will be getting married in July but I haven't booked a photographer or a videographer as yet.

I go to wedding events but I believe they are too expensive. Charging £800 for photos and another £1000 to video.

Groupon are offering deals of £200 but it's only for a few hours of the day.

Ideally need someone there all day.

If any derby/Nottingham photographers/videographers are willing to help than please let me know.

Thanks

Your probably best looking on Facebook or from friends for a reputable photographer. I think ours was £500 for just the photographer and that was mates rates. Also make sure u get them all on a disc with the rights to print for personal use that way you can print a few off for Aunty Mable and cousin john etc. Look at previous work as some photographers are glorified picture takers and aren't worth it.

I would offer however I am nowhere near confident enough in my photography skills to cover a wedding. Congratulations on the big day.

When my hubby and I married we were very hard up , we supplied throw away cameras for the guests and enlisted the use of everyone's video cameras ,and smart phones , and made our own video and album , doing the editing ourselves , it was a great success

Wedding photography is expensive. It's a skilled job, it requires a lot of hours (like, a lot more than they're at the venue for - processing and developing shots optimally takes time), lots of expensive equipment, and lots of costly overheads. If you want a cheap wedding photographer, you'll need to advertise for someone who's just looking to gain experience. They're probably the same as the folks who are selling their services through Groupon, though.

Decent wedding photographers are expensive for a reason. They don't just rock up and fire off 1000s of snaps and pick the best ones to give to you like a mate would - they use top end equipment and SKILL to CREATE great photographs. They then spend hour upon hour in post-production ensuring every photograph is technically and artistically perfect. If you want cheap then don't expect a proper wedding photographer - and don't expect every key moment of your day to have a perfect photographic representation.
We aren't fans of posed wedding photographs so opted for a 'photo journalist' wedding photographer to capture candid moments (as well as a handful of posed ones to please the rellies!). He wasn't cheap but the photos we got from it are amazing. Check out http://bursill.com/

Unfortunately you get what you pay for with wedding photographers. Having been a photographer in the past and spent 2 years at college learning my trade many years ago here some advice i can offer. It is only my personal advise and no offence should be taken by any one who sees themself as a wedding photographer, However some questions you really need to ask any one who your thinking of hiring is what camera are they using? Again my opinion only but it should be full frame, they should also have a backup camera. What lenses do they use? They should be professional lenses and be able to shoot at 2.8. I always shoot with a second shooter as I can't be in 2 places at the same time. Do they do a recce of your location? To find the ideal settings for your shots or will they just find them spare of the moment and take up valuable time with you on your wedding day. A good wedding photographer will only need you for about half an hour for the posed shots depending on what you want obviously. You don't want to spend all day away from your guests because you shooter can't sort his stuff out. What are there provisions for bad weather? Yep it's July but again were in england and we all know the british weather. Are they able to shoot using flash? Do you plan on printing the pictures? And if so on what media. Canvas is forgiving where as printing onto say aluminium isnt so the pictures need to be pin sharp. The list goes on and like I said you get what you pay for. A lot of people skimp on the budget for a photographer but remember it's your big day and you only get 1 chance to get the picture's. If you want to private message me I can can you details of a "cheap" photographers work and a "professional" photographers work. Hope this helps you somewhat and appoligies for the grammer and spelling I have just finished night shift. Also I'm not poaching for any work I now only shoot for fun and not profit.

Why don't you find your local camera club and invite a few of them to the wedding with the incentive that whoever does the best picture or video gets the cash and the others get the experience :-)
