There are so many different things to consider when choosing your Bristol or Somerset wedding photographer. No two photographers will have the same approach and all will offer their own unique service and style. Some will adopt a photojournalistic or reportage documentary approach for most of your day, so you can look back and remember just how incredible your day actually was in addition to the more traditional couples, bridesmaids and family group shots.
A good wedding photographer will be unobtrusive and will capture the day in a relaxed and informal way from the 'getting ready' stage right through to the first dance and well into the evening.
You want to remember your wedding day forever so it's worth choosing a photographer you are comfortable with and will record your day in the best possible way.
Here’s some great wedding photographers in Bristol and Somerset from places like Bath, Weston Super Mare, Taunton, Yeovil and Bridgwater, whom you might want to get in touch with...

Camera ready: Any advice for the camera shy?
We're both a bit camera shy and are feeling anxious about photos on our wedding day, but also want a lovely album to look back on. Can you offer us some advice?
Simply be yourselves. Our job as wedding photographers is to capture your day as it happens, as well as doing our best to look after our couples. I personally like to tell a story when shooting as your day unfolds and simply want you to be you. There is really no need to feel awkward in front of the camera, as with my documentary-style shooting, you'll barely know I'm there most of the time!
It's important to get to know your wedding photographer before the big day. An engagement shoot is the best way to do this, as is meeting up or exchanging phone calls. This will all help to put you at ease in front of the camera.
