So following on from the start of our countdown yesterday to the Wedding Fair at Bluewater, part one of our wedding worries special kicks off with choosing your photographer. Always a toughie so click through and have a look at this guest blog post, by Kent photographer Rebecca Douglas, who talks you through the process. A must read for anyone still debating who will capture their big day.

Oh and we do love an engagement shoot. They are a great way to get to know your photographer and get a feel for the type of images you want taken on your big day. Have a sneak peek at Love in Paris and Bluebells and Fairytales for a bit of engagement shoot inspiration. If you’re still not sure read this useful post from Offbeat Bride which gives you some darn good reasons why you should partake in a shoot, especially if you’re a bit camera shy. Also check out their engagement shoot ideas board.

Plus if you’ve ever wondered how your mate always looks great in pics whilst you’re sporting a double chin and red eye then read this article on iVillage. This way you might actually get tagged in a wedding Facebook picture where you look half human, although after years of trying I’m still yet to perfect that one…..

Happy Posing!

Today on the blog we have another fantastic find to share with you, Kent wedding photographer, Helen Schryver of Schryver Photography. Here Helen tells us a little more about her work…..

“My wedding photography is largely documentary-style, with unobtrusive coverage typically lasting from bridal preparations to well into the evening. I believe the best photos come from capturing people unaware as very few people actually enjoy posing for photographs! I make it my mission to seek out all the hundreds of special moments that take place on a wedding day and love taking creative shots of all the little details. I want to make sure I have really captured the whole feel of the day.”
