Looking for a Sussex wedding photographer is probably a first for you, so we have designed a quick guideline that is easy to understand and will give you a clear image of what to look in a photographer.
What do you want your photographer to cover? Some had from their preparation stage going to the saloon, the engagement party all the way until the last second of the wedding party. Others have exclusively use the photographer for only their wedding procession.
Depending on your needs and preferences, you can negotiate with the photographer to add a little from the offered package for more events, or reduce to get a price cut.
Generally, photographers offer around 8 hours for a wedding day, but this can vary according to your needs. Some couples feel that the wedding may last way much longer, so they opt for unlimited hours of the day.
Others charge for the additional hours they work for, and depending on your request, it can go as much as $300 an hour.
Usually photographers give you the CD, DVD, or Blu-ray of all the photos for the couple in form of slideshow.

Additional shooters always help with giving more perspectives and full coverage of your events, especially big ones.
