How to Select Wedding Photographers in Cape Town:
When selecting Cape Town wedding photographers, there are a number of factors to consider:
- Price of Cape Town Wedding Photographers: Wondering what the cost of wedding photographer in South Africa is? The average price of a professional wedding photographer in Cape Town in 2018 can range from R8 000 to R30 000 or more. Wedding photography packages are calculated by taking into account the photographers experience and skill, determining the hours of coverage required, the number of wedding shooters that will photograph your wedding, the equipment used by the cape town photographer, the number of prints, coffee table books and canvases required, among other things.
- Photographic Style: Professional wedding photographers consider their work an art form, each photographer having their own personal style of expression. These range from documentary photo-journalism style, to fine art wedding photography and everything in-between. Take a look at your photographer’s blog to get a feel for their style and personality.
- Photographer’s Experience: This is extremely important! You want to make sure that a seasoned professional is capturing your once in a lifetime day – there really are no do-overs! The more weddings the photographer has shot, the more experience they will have with preparing for unforseen circumstances. They will be better equipped to deal with emergencies on the day. They would have already learned from the errors that a more junior photographer is yet to encounter, earned their stripes, and know how to avoid making mistakes again. Most couples want to avoid having a flustered photographer miss an important shot as they walk down the aisle.
- Photographers Personality: You’re going to be spending a lot of time with your photographer on your wedding day, so make sure you get along with them. When making your final selection, meet your potential photographer for a coffee or book an engagement shoot. Choose someone whom you feel relaxed and comfortable with – they’re going to be there when you get dressed, so this is quite important!
Tips for Booking a Wedding Photographer in Cape Town
Because Cape Town is such a popular wedding destination, wedding photographers in Cape Town are often booked up seasons in advance. Make sure that you book your Cape Town photographer and wedding venue as soon as you can – some wedding photographers can be booked up as much as two years in advance!
Consider venue experience
In most cases there will be photographers that are highly familiar with your chosen venue because they have shot their many times, perhaps due to living within close proximity of the venue. While a professional wedding photographer will of course be able to shoot at any venue, the photographer who is already familiar with your venue will be able to point out great locations that you might not know about, either on the venue or in the surrounding areas. They’ll also likely be familiar with the light and shadows at the particular venue and be able to guide you on the best times to shoot at which spot for best results.
