Choose a young photographer just starting his business and who is willing to work charging less rice while building up your portfolio. Check art school to get a photography student for shooting the wedding or scan the Internet to find amateur photographer within your area to shoot the wedding.
Hiring the Photographer
Check the photographer’s portfolio as well as price list. Check if the price list includes prints along with the album and negotiate. Ask him if he can charge on hourly basis instead of a package deal.
Ask a friend or a family member who enjoys photography for shooting pictures during the wedding reception. You can pay for the developing and the printing costs.
Getting the Prints
If you are hiring a professional photographer, you should ask for a DVD having pictures and make use of online service for printing to control the printing costs.
