A guide to finding a wedding photographer in Kent

Kent, the 'garden of England', is a particularly picturesque county in which people can get married. This means that wedding photographers are in high demand, but it also means that there are plenty to choose from. Whether you want to get married in the towns or countryside, there is undoubtedly a photographer nearby to fulfil your requirements. This article is a guide to finding a wedding photographer in Kent.

Online

Many photographers can be found through the Internet. It is therefore, worth taking the time to look through their online portfolios and analysing their terms and conditions (what happens in the unlikely event that their equipment and back up fail on the big day, for instance). A quick search will bring up established wedding photographers covering Kent, such as David Fenwick, Paul Johnson, Helen Batt and Howling Basset. Remember however, that the more prestigious photographers may have a price that reflects their expertise. If you are on a tight budget, it might be better to look for a lower-ranked and less illustrious photographer.

Word of mouth

The rise of the 'word of mouth' amateur photographer appears to be unstoppable since the recession . Money is tight, so soon-to-be-married couples are looking at cheaper options that they may not have considered, had the economy been flourishing. Although, this strategy also works for Kent's top photographers, there is no doubt that less experienced, but well-connected amateurs are benefiting. If you are about to get married, it may be worth asking recently married friends if they employed an amateur who took excellent wedding portraits, for instance. You may then, get his contact details.

Wedding magazines

Any bride-to-be in Kent is likely to be up to her neck in bridal magazines, looking for ideas, reading wedding stories and admiring the photos. Chances are that she will also flip to the classifieds to see if there is a photographer in her location. Indeed, if a photographer has advertised in a local magazine, it tells you that s/he probably specialises in covering Kent and that s/he has paid a hefty rate to advertise himself/herself. While this is no guarantee of a successful find, it does indicate more than a passing commitment to his/her speciality.

Local newspapers and supermarkets

Many local Kent newspapers have survived the carnage that led to some publications shops closing during the recession. This is an unlikely choice if you are looking for a photographer in the area. Checking out the business card area in supermarkets is also worth doing. You could find a local wedding photographer who has not advertised in print or created an online portfolio.
