A trap you need to avoid is spotting a few epic images on a website and making a swift decision in hiring the photographer. Take your time and go through as many photos as possible before pulling the trigger. The likelihood of finding classic pictures in an album by a guru is quite higher than a newbie's.
So now, it is clearer how variable the cost of shooting photos during the wedding can be. And thus, your choices will be better informed. However, do not only consider cost when hiring a photographer. You may be extremely anxious or excited on the wedding day and miss the intricate details of the moments. Images may then function as the only pathway for re-experiencing the moments once the dust settles. So you do not want just any image, but premium quality prints that will last a lifetime.
