Photo & Video Checklist

Wedding Photographer Checklist

Your Wedding Photographer's and Videographer's Check List

There are many occasions where you may chose not to use a Professional Wedding Photographer.  If this is the case there are a few photo's that your chosen photographer should include in your portfolio – feel free to make your own copy, to amend and tweak or hand straight to your photographer, to ensure everyone and everything you want is snapped on your special day

TIP – If giving a copy to your photographer, insert everyone’s names (beside their titles) so you aren’t directing people. This way you can mingle and relax, knowing all is taken care of and no one will be missed
