Kent wedding photographer Tim Stubbings offers Kent brides a checklist when looking for Kent wedding photography.

Are you getting married in Kent? Who will be your Kent wedding photographer? Are you tempted to use a friend?

I train other photographers and I’m regularly on the panel of experts of wedding magazines. The question about how to choose your wedding photographer comes up a lot and is an obvious concern to a lot of brides. Some people will use a friend or family member with a digital SLR, but just a few crucial questions to consider include:

  1. can they cope with a variety of shooting conditions
  2. do they own backup equipment – are they FULLY insured
  3. have they done it before (and have you seen the results)

Here is a list of some of some of the other things you might consider when looking for a Kent wedding photographer.

It’s not just about business, it’s personality

When selecting a Kent wedding photographer you are selecting more than just a photographer for your wedding day. You are hiring a wedding photographer that will be with you, your friends and family throughout your wedding day. Can you imagine the photographer being around you and your guests for a length of time? Personality does matter in making a your choice.

Your Kent wedding photographer’s personality can set the tone for your entire wedding day and your bridal party. From the engagement session through to choosing the final album, they should be somebody your get on with!


Whilst price will be an important factor when choosing your Kent wedding photographer, it should not be the only thing that matters. All too often the press cover stories from brides who made a decision for their wedding photography based purely on price and the problems it caused them. That’s why we refer to the different pricing options in terms of “investment”. The photography will be of a long lasting quality and one of the most significant ways of recalling your wedding day.
