There are days to be remembered. Wedding days are happy days. They come in color, they are stitched so smoothly with time and archaeology, so they are not forgotten. Time has a way of taking things away. Pictures are powerful. Sea wave changes. The sunset you see today is not the sunset you see tomorrow. Pictures will show today what you saw yesterday. They will have the soil, the water, the grass, the effort you put to make that special day awesome and everything you have walked upon, spray–painted and framed. They will tell stories. Very precious.

Are you getting married in Colombo, Sri Lanka? Who will be your wedding photographer?

Here is a list of some of the things you should consider when looking for a wedding photographer in Sri Lanka.

##1 Personality

When selecting a wedding photographer in Sri Lanka you are selecting more than just a photographer for your wedding day. You are hiring a wedding photographer that will be with you, your family and your group all day opening the second chapter in your life. Personality is a huge part of the selection process and should not be overlooked or discounted in any way.

Your wedding photographer’s personality can set the tone for your entire wedding day and your bridal party. Ultimately it can impact your wedding photography altogether. You will more than likely be working with your wedding photographer for a year, or longer in some cases, by the time you factor in your engagement session and post wedding photography and albums.

##2 Price

While price is always a factor when selecting your wedding photographer, it should not be the only thing that matters. All too often we hear horror stories from brides who made a decision for their wedding photography based purely on price. It turns out to be foolish in the end. When its all said and done, your wedding photography will be all you have to remember your wedding day.

##3 Wedding Albums

What will you do with all your images from your wedding photographer? Most people opt to place them in a beautifully designed wedding album that your wedding photographer should provide you with. Don’t underestimate the importance of a wedding album from your wedding day. This is your first family heirloom and your one keepsake you will have forever to remember your wedding in Sri Lanka.

When selecting a wedding photographer you should look for an album that best represents you and your new family. Wedding albums come in all shapes and sizes. Questions you should ask. Your wedding photographer
1) How many pages come in the wedding album?
2) How many images will be in the wedding album?
3) What are the other options available for my wedding album?

##4 Coverage

Something often overlooked when selecting a wedding photographer is the number of hours that will be offered during the coverage of your wedding in Colombo or outstation (Kandy, Galle, Negambo). Typically you will want your wedding photographer to be with you to document all the moments of your wedding day. After all, that’s what you are hiring them for. That being said, typical coverage requirements for your wedding day should be about 8-10 hours.

Be careful here. Some Sri Lankan Wedding Photographers offer cut-rate prices by offering you less than adequate wedding coverage for your day. These become hidden costs and once you realize it, it’s often too late.

##5 Number of wedding photographers

How many wedding photographers will be at your event? Most events need at least two wedding photographers. This ensures that your wedding photographer is focused on working with your group and directing the day and allows the second wedding photographer to have coverage going on at the same time.

We find that by having two wedding photographers at your event, your wedding photography needs can best be met all while ensuring that nothing gets missed from your big day.
