Can wedding photos document your wedding story?

If you are planning your wedding in Uganda today, you may have as many wedding photographers to choose from as you would have wedding cake providers. Choosing one becomes a game of Ludo. Whereas most photographers will have good cameras with some of the best quality photos and even great wedding videos, some will excel better than others in specifics. 

Most wedding photographers are capable of giving wedding tips on floral arrangements, decor designs, color palettes, poses etc. But those who can document your story using photography will stand out. Remember your wedding day is perhaps the best day in your life. Its story must be told and a good story teller knows what is memorable-a wedding souvenir throughout your married life till death do you part.

Worry not, Kampala has great photographers fit for the job. Here is a list of some of the top wedding photography documenters with tons of inspiration to tell your story and a wedding photo history that speaks for itself.
