Photography & Video in Aberdeen

It is worth considering your wedding photography requirements early in the planning process as good photographers will be booked up well in advance. The summer months, and possibly the Christmas period, are particularly busy. It is crucial to be happy with your choice as your photographs will be a visual reminder of the day for the rest of your lives.

As your wedding day will have its own theme or style, so each photographer has his or her own style. You should not only be happy with their method of photography, but also with their personality and presence. This person will be with you for much of your wedding day and ideally will be unobtrusive whilst taking striking photos.

If you have opted for a traditional wedding, then you may wish to hire the services of a photographer with a more conventional approach, conversely with a modern wedding you may be drawn to a more relaxed or reportage style of photography. The only way to judge each photographer is to see their portfolios and discuss whether your exact requirements can be met. As with photographers, if you decide to employ a professional to video your day, it is important to see samples of their work and set out your expectations in advance.

Budget is an important consideration and should be discussed at the outset. Charges differ from person to person, where some photographers charge for their time and photographs are built into that cost, others charge only for the prints bought, and these can be extremely costly. Most photographers will offer wedding packages and these will often suit a range of budgets, whether you want full wedding albums or a few select prints. Image rights are another issue which should be ironed out at the beginning as with any other legal matters.

Aberdeen has a large selection of professional and creative photographers, all of whom will bring you memorable reminders of your special day, and some of the best are featured below.
