Wedding Photographers Save the Date
Have you ever seen a wedding photo so perfectly capturing a couple that it made you want to be that much in love? Some pictures seem to take a single second and enshrine it in the annals of time. Your wedding deserves to be preserved in the same picture-perfect way.
All It Takes is a Click
Your wedding photographer may be easier to find than you think. With most of us using some form of social media, you’re likely to already be scrolling through hour after hour of wedding preparations on your phone already. Cast your net close and ask friends and family who they would recommend.
Listen to their pros and cons and keep your mind open to both professional and amateur recommendations. Many photographers showcase their wares on Instagram, Facebook, and Pinterest. This is handy, because you can easily compare multiple local photographers in a short time.
Set the Scene for Your Dreams
Wherever your nuptials occur, shutterbugs come prepared to instantly preserve the occasion. Churches, beaches, forest, mountains, and even the sky have played host to the coming together of two souls. In any setting, your memories can be as unique as your love. You and your photographer will brainstorm the possibilities before settling on a final approach.
On your big day, the photographer will likely arrive on site a few hours early to plan their shots based upon lighting, space, wedding party size, and any specific requests you may have. Usually, they bring their own set of standard props for the occasion, but most photographers are happy to integrate your own into the pictures.
First Kisses and Cake Smashes
Trusty camera in hand, your photographer is ready to capture all the memories that matter for you to hold on to for years to come. Most will have prepared poses for wedding party ensemble shots and will also take candid shots. Wedding packages vary by photographer, so make sure you both understand what is included in the package you will receive.
The bouquet toss, the first dance, the flower girl dancing with the groom; these are the moments we wish to hold on to. The photographer who captures them knows how important they are and will be ready when the timing and lighting is just right to catch them all, and more.
Keepsakes as Unique as the Bride and Groom
Photographic and printing advancements have made a wider assortment of photo papers, inks, printing styles, frames and mountings available at reasonable costs. Being able to digitally reproduce your photos for online publication is also available from most photographers as well, for a small fee.
There is a range of bindings to choose from, and your photographer can recommend the binding, format, and print specifications that best suit your tastes and budget. Many offer packages that include keepsake items such as single use cameras for guests, wedding videos, framed prints, albums, engagement announcements and “save the date” photo invitations.
Congratulations, and may your wedding day be picture perfect!
