So, your big day has finally arrived and it seems as though everything is going according to plan… or was… do you have a “Plan B” for these potentially disastrous scenarios? Cover all bases today to ensure your wedding day runs like clockwork

The photographer impressed you with his images at your initial meeting but watching them in action makes you nervous. Learn from my friends experience and as soon as you suspect your photographer is NQR, voice your concerns! Let the photographer know EXACTLY what you want and then get a friend or family member to try and get some back up shots. If you have done your homework correctly and asked to see a wide variety of their work (like the last 10 weddings, not just one couples day) you should be ok.
