Everyone wants lasting memories of the best day of their lives – their wedding day – and so finding the right wedding photographer in the New Forest is of vital importance.

As much thought should go into finding a wedding photographer as finding the right dress, bouquet and venue. This might raise a few eyebrows, but the photos will last a lifetime, showing those treasured moments of the happy couple and their wedding shared with family and friends.

You will not want photos that are blurred or look a little dull. You want vibrant photos that show off the beautiful bride and pictures of all the family and guests.

The memory may fade, but the wedding day will live on through the photos, which can act as a reminder of the special event, of magic moments, of happy times and of all those examples of ‘dad dancing’ on the dance floor.

Take your time when choosing a wedding photographer in the New Forest. You can ask friends and family for advice or ask questions on social media. Draw up a shortlist, take a look at their website and see examples of their work.

Look at Other Wedding Photos

Make sure you look at their portfolio as well as their website, such as Lemontree Photography. See if there is a good range, such as the actual wedding ceremony, speeches, the first dance and the reception.

It is always best to meet the photographers to see if there is a particular style which suits you the best. You may want traditional shots as well as some more creative images – the bouquet next to a slice of wedding cake or the veil next to the wedding rings, for example.

If an old school friend who you haven’t seen for a long time is coming to the wedding, let the photographer know so he or she can take a photo of the two of you together.

Let the Wedding Photographer Know What You Want

There may be special shots you want – the bride getting ready, the final moment when Dad and the bride are getting into the wedding car, the special place where the couple became engaged or a particular viewpoint which has great memories for you. After all, there are so many scenic places to take wedding photos in the New Forest.
