Should’ve spent less on the dress; more on the memories.

Shutterfly Survey on wedding trends reveals 22 percent of the couples surveyed felt they didn’t spend enough on their wedding photographer!

Of course spending more money is no guarantee of satisfaction, but the idea of booking a cheap photographer who provides all the images on disc (often uncorrected, straight out of camera), can be a false economy. Spend more on your photographer!

Even with a disc of corrected images, it can be a daunting task to sort through hundreds of images and then try to design and have printed, an album that you are delighted with. Spend more on your photographer!

I can spend many hours designing an album, so goodness knows how long it would take someone doing it for the first time. I suspect it often gets muddled together in the end, just to get it finished, and I’m sure this must be one of the reasons for disappointment. Spend more on your photographer!

Quantity cannot replace quality, so it is still essential you choose photographer who can provide quality images, or sorting through your ‘average’ wedding photos can be very disheartening. Spend more on your photographer!

  The range of quality between albums and books is as varied as photographers prices! We pride ourselves on using quality products produced in the UK. Spend more on your photographer!

OK, so the above is a rather tongue in cheek, but there really is a concern that almost a quarter of the couples surveyed, felt they should have spent their money more wisely.

Below is a quote from the Shutterfly Wedding Trends Survey:

  •  Should’ve spent less on the dress; more on the memories.
  • Of survey respondents married within 12 months prior to the survey, 28 percent felt they didn’t spend enough money on the honeymoon; 22 percent felt the same about the photographer. 19 percent of the same sample  reported spending too much on the bridal gown and food.
