The Best Wedding Photographer Auckland, New Zealand

The best wedding photographer is the one that has a special routine to make sure that everyone is included.

This is no easy task for a wedding photographer at a large wedding so it’s important that all the right descriptions are used to determine who should appear in each photo.

Occasionally I get these phone calls from prospective clients who tell me that they want the “Best” candid wedding photography and after giving me a bullet list of events, have only two questions – How much do you charge? and What is included in this price? Quite frankly, it sounds like someone buying a washing machine!!
The features vs. price mentality serves this mindset.

This article will give you a better perspective on how to find the right photographer and some tips to be able to afford them.
You pick up what suits your taste, matches your sensibilities, and is the best FOR YOU. This is exactly how you hire artists.
Ask them the right questions – about their perspective, their priorities, their style, and their USP. Only then can you be certain that you’re booking a photographer who’s the right fit for you.

Always remember that the best Wedding photographer for one person could easily be the worst choice for someone else !!!
Assuming you’ve found the photographer you like the most, here are 3 simple ways to be able to afford them –

1. Hire the right photographer, even if it means trimming the list of events.

Top artists are expensive because their work is sophisticated, exclusive, and highly personalized. However, most of them are quite affordable if you change your perspective and requirements. For e.g. A lot of our clients working with a smaller budget choose to hire us only for the wedding ceremony and are very happy with the final delivery. It all boils down to quality versus quantity and how important photography is for you. You can always have inexpensive traditional photographers or your friends shooting the other events.

2. Ask for referrals.

Yes, it’s possible that you still might not be able to afford the photographer you really wanted. However, most photographers know other photographers with a similar shooting style. They also work with second-shooters whom they usually train & guide and every good-hearted photographer would want their second-shooters to start shooting independently.   What you need to do is simply ask for a referral. Be upfront and let them know your budget so that they only refer someone relevantly.

3. Look for an amateur/student/part-time photographer

Ideally, I wouldn’t want you here but sometimes there are severe budget/family constraints that might restrict you from choosing the above two options. Photography students, amateurs, and part-time photographers may give you a too-good-to-be-true deal but I can point out the possible pitfalls from my own experience. My job got in the way many times and I had to shift focus from my deliverables as a photographer.
