Ready to start choosing a photographer for your special day, here’s some important factors to consider from Weston-super-mare Wedding and Portrait photographer Mark Taylor.

Style and Quality

Viewing a wide range of a photographers portfolio will reveal a photographer style and quality. Be aware that heavily edited shots can be a attempt to cover up poor quality photographs. Photos should be bright, clear and crisp in quality.


Choosing a photographer with a professional but yet friendly character will help ease any anxieties. If you don’t feel comfortable with your photographer this will become apparent in your wedding photographs. Also, think of your guests. If your wedding photographer is approachable, friendly and down to earth, your guests will be at ease allowing the photographer to blend in and capture the day as it naturally unfolds rather than a forced and posed account.


When choosing a photographer it’s important to select one that has worked in the area you are marrying. I’ve travelled to weddings throughout Somerset, chances are that I have already photographed a previous wedding at the venue you’ve chosen. I know the most beautiful area of the venue for your wedding shots.


Word of mouth is the most flattering form of recommendations, luckily for me, my name pops up many times when brides are discussing Somerset Wedding Photographers. If you are recommended a photographer by word of mouth, and they were truly impressed by the service, then chances are you will be too.
