Who Took the Pictures for the Book of Love?
Your wedding day is already full of tiny details just waiting to be overlooked. Taking extra care in choosing your wedding photographer will help ease your mind on your big day. The following tips will help you get the best photographer for that special day.
Capturing Memories Frame by Frame
When deciding on the right person to freeze frame the moments that matter most, it’s a good idea to start by building a list of candidates. Don’t be too specific here. What you’re looking for at the beginning is finding people whose artistic style compliments you.
If the wedding is a formal affair, focus on professionals that will reflect that tone. Likewise, if casual is your thing, you might appreciate a relaxed style. Every shutterbug has their own unique view through the lens, find a few whose portfolio excites you and fits your budget.
Two Entrees, Five Bridesmaids, One Photographer
Like the cake you spent days agonizing over, your wedding photos are going to be remembered for a long time. Keep that in mind when deciding on a photo package. What moments do you want to look back on and relive in 25 years? Are there guests that you especially want to capture on film? Is it a theme wedding? Is the location the focal point?
All these questions should result in a basic idea of which packages to buy, and who will be taking them. Price will also be a deciding factor; however, most reputable photographers offer competitive rates for their work. Again, leave yourselves a short list of candidates that fit your needs.
Don’t forget to ask what accommodations he/she needs to give you the highest quality pictures. If lighting or space is a factor, you will want to know before the day of the wedding.
So Many Proofs, So Little Willpower
If you’re working with a smaller budget, remember that your photographer doesn’t expect you to keep every shot they take, but they do expect you to pay for every print they make. The camera person habitually takes multiple shots from different angles, you choose which ones you like best before they are developed.
Catching a perfect snap isn’t just something your wedding photographer can do, and single use cameras for the guests can make for one of a kind pictures. Your friends and family know you intimately, so they are more likely to capture moments the photographer wouldn’t necessarily look for.
A Lasting Impression
The photographer you sign is there to enhance your day, and careful selection will ensure they do. It’s their passion to isolate single moments in time and immortalize them in ink and paper. Allowing your photographer to play to their artistic strengths and interests could result in spectacular photos.
Whoever photographs your wedding, the photos they take will remind you of the beginning of your life as a married couple. Your photographer offers the first illustrations in the Book of Mr. and Mrs. You.
