I’m Sanele Chadwick and I’m a professional wedding and portrait photographer based in Auckland.
Choosing a wedding photographer is difficult, partly because you’re investing in a service, not an actual product. Unlike an oven or a brand new car, you don’t know when you’ve bought a dud service until it’s too late. You can return an oven, or a brand new car, but you can’t return your wedding photographer.
So, how do you choose the best wedding photographer for you? Easy! Ask around, talk to others, and don’t just rely on websites or online directories. Pick up the phone and call, email, get in touch and get to know them. Choose a photographer who makes you feel comfortable, who listens to you, and makes you feel valued. Choose a professional who makes you feel you’ve made the right choice to have them photograph your wedding day.
Remember, you’re making a serious investment for your wedding photography, so you have every right to be picky and ask questions.
