Hey there, I’m Kieran Boniface. I’m a professional & qualified wedding photographer living in Southampton | Hampshire.
Always choose a qualified wedding photographer. I simply cannot stress this enough! When you invest in a qualified wedding photographer you are safe in the knowledge that your photographer has reached the required professional standard to photograph weddings.
Make sure that your photographer shows you a complete wedding from start to finish, not just a selection of pictures in an album. It helps you gain a real insight into your photographers work and how they edit your images. Ask to view a selection of before and after images. An
Meet the photographer! The single most important step. Getting to know my couple is incredibly important and special to me. But then so is coffee and cake! To really understand your day, what you love and what you don’t, time spent together will help gain all those important insights.
Ask to view their products! I only use the finest Italian albums and products which are hand made in Italy and flown over, they use only the finest materials in the photographic industry. Your wedding photographs should always last generations - so it's very important the album is of the finest quality.
Don't ever be afraid to question your photographer - a great photographer will be able to answer your questions without any problem. I relish questions where you might like more information or be shown how your products increase your wedding experience.
Remember that dress you paid hundreds or thousands for?? The one you’ve been dreaming of since you were 5? A great indicator for a professional photographer is capturing all the details in your dress. If the dress is so bright and white that you can’t see any detail in the dress then its been over exposed, I see so much of this currently with photographers who call themselves professional. I can’t think of anything worse than ruining a beautiful dress on your special day.
Finally, your photographs, marriage and hopefully your suntan are the only important investments, which you retain after your wedding day has finished. The joy and unique pleasure remain long after the price is forgotten.
May you enjoy this special time as you search for the right jigsaw pieces that fit your incredible picture.
