If there is one thing the majority of wedding bloggers can agree on it’s a professional wedding photographer is worth their weight in gold. Wedding photographers might be expensive but, in my experience, you get what you pay for. Of course you have to consider budget, we’re not made of money, and sometimes just because a photographer is expensive doesn’t necessarily mean they are any good. However, to get the level of experience and expertise needed to take photos you will cherish forever you are looking at £1000 plus. For a lot of couples this is at least 10% of their wedding budget, if not more, so it can be tempting to DIY your photos instead. Here’s my 2 cents on why I think a professional is worth the investment.
