Ask yourself: Is this the person I would like to have around on my wedding day, when I’m stressed, overheated, dehydrated and ready to faint? Are they going to keep me calm and make me feel relaxed? Remember, the photographer’s personality is just as important as the beautiful wedding photos they take)              "wedding photographer in Cape Town"
