Weddings are a huge day for the couple and the photographers, with so much pressure resting on their shoulders. The challenge of hiring the right photographer who can capture beautiful and memorable moments on one of the most important days of your life can be massive.
Here’s a complete guideline of dos and don’ts of wedding photography:
- Don’t compromise on quality
Don’t cut costs or make compromises when it comes to hiring a wedding photographer. You get what you pay for. A wedding photographer is one of the only things you can spend money on.
- Don’t be nervous about the cameras
Don’t be nervous about the camera, even if you’re camera shy. Focus on how much fun you’re having, more than on if you look photo-ready or not. Have confidence in your photographer; they can make you look your best.
- Relax and enjoy your big day
Nothing is secret from the audience, so don’t get all worked up over posing and making stiff, unnatural expressions. You’re getting married, so savor the moment and show off the natural attraction you two share, as natural poses would yield the best results. Relax and enjoy the photographer’s instructions for both staged and natural shots.
- Cut cost on the venue
Be sure to choose a venue that complements your wedding theme and sight. Avoid small crowded spaces; the more space a photographer has, the better the image will turn out. Ideal shooting locations have plenty of natural light; see if your bridal suite and the reception area meet these requirements.
- Overbook the schedule
A wedding is a hectic day. There’s a lot to cover in a few hours. The best way to have a photoshoot is not to put it on hold for other occasions. Work with the photographer to create a schedule so that your devoted time in front of the camera is not compromised.
