Photographer Daniel Raad tells us how you can get lovely photographers on any budget.
"Start by finding a photographer within your budget. Average wedding photography for a full day can be around £1,200 in the UK, so plan your budget accordingly to ensure you get the best.
"Book early. Photographers usually have an early booking discount if you contact them a couple of years in advance.
"If you find a suitable photographer, but they’re out of budget, ask them to reduce the coverage. For example, instead of covering from preparation to the end, you can ask them to cover from the ceremony up to the cutting of the cake. Less time means there will be fewer photos overall and should therefore be cheaper.
"Another way to reduce the cost is to ask for an online gallery rather than a printed version. It can save up to £500, depending on the album prices.
"Most photographers offer a discount to couples who have been referred by previous clients."
