Use a Master Photographer – the Perfect Choice

Wedding Photography by Steve Wellum LMPA

Most couples are amazed at how quickly their wedding day seems to go, that’s why it’s vital that you choose your wedding photographer carefully, as the images they capture will provide a lasting reminder of your special day.

You may be tempted to ask a friend or family member to take your official pictures. We would urge to you to resist this temptation at all costs! People may be very competent amateur photographers, but very few can achieve the really ‘polished’ look of a well-taken professional photograph. Photographing a wedding properly can be a stressful business – and your guests are there to celebrate your wedding with you, not work!

It’s worth remembering that if you are not happy with your wedding photographs it will be hard  to recreate them. That’s why it’s so important that you find the right photographer for you – and that takes some research on your part.

The internet has made browsing photographer’s work very easy. There’s a directory of accredited Master Photographers Association members available at www.thempa.com where you may compare the styles on offer. You may be looking for traditional, formal images or the more contemporary ‘reportage’ style. Either way, www.thempa.com is the place to start looking.

Arrange appointments with a number of photographers and ask to see examples of their work. One sign of a skilled photographer is consistently good photos from one wedding, so make sure their portfolios aren’t full of single shots from different weddings. This is particularly important if you’re going for informal shots; it’s relatively easy to get a couple of good natural pictures, but can they keep up that standard for a full album?

You may be considering a part-time (semi-professional) wedding photographer. This will be a cheaper option than a full-time professional, but they will probably not have the experience or support network that comes with a full-time photographer. They may not have undergone any training and they may flounder when it comes to demanding conditions, such as harsh sunlight, high winds, rain, dark skies, shooting into the sunlight, etc.

Using a full time Master Photographer is well worth the investment. Professionals also come in different levels of competence, but what is really important is that you a) like the pictures and b) get on well with the photographer who will be shooting your pictures on the day.

Colin Buck, MPA chief executive says: “The MPA is the only trade body in the UK that insists its members are full-time, qualified photographers. All our members are bound by the MPA’s strict Code of Conduct; this gives the public confidence that they’ll be dealt with fairly, honestly and helpfully. When you choose a MPA photographer, you can be certain that you have chosen creativity, professionalism and dedication. And all members must pass at least the Licentiate entrance qualification, so you can be confident that their images are of a good standard.”
