Capturing the moments – Weddings are a unique moment in life, a special occasion, so capturing the moments of the wedding day is very important, not only to the marrying couple, but also to their friends and family, who will be also captured on camera by the wedding photographer. The problem with weddings is that they can become quite chaotic, especially if the couple does not use the services of a wedding planner or coordinator. But everything can turn out as you want, at least in terms of photography, if you follow these next pieces of advice.
The first one is to determine your style
The first one is to determine your style and what you want from your wedding photographer. If you want your image to be captured somewhere by a lake, you should tell him this, and several days before the wedding (or after, depending on your preferences) go to a lake in your region and have your photos taken.
Decide if you are a traditionalist or prefer to go on a more contemporary route
At the same time, you have to decide if you are a traditionalist or prefer to go on a more contemporary route. When you search for a wedding photographer, check for his portfolio of work, to see whether that photographer shoots photos the way you prefer them shot. If the photos are too traditional, or too modern, by your standards, you are always free to search for another photographer.
Speaking of portfolios of work
Speaking of portfolios of work, these are indeed important, but more important is to meet with your potential wedding photographer and ask him several questions about his experience, photography style, number of photo cameras used, schedule, and many others.
If you are on a tight budget
If you are on a tight budget, instead of asking one of your friends to do the honors and transform into a wedding photographer at your wedding, we recommend you to address a photographer at the beginning of his career. Also, don’t rule out amateur photographers, because in most cases they are more imaginative and talented than professional photographers.
