WHAT TO EXPECT FROM YOUR WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER
To capture your life as it happens on that special day including those fleeting moments that you will appreciate for years to come.
To set aside at least half an hour to an hour for your photoshoot to ensure that we get the shots we need. I understand that most couples would rather be socialising with friends and family – but these are some of the most important shots of the day
To be on time
To dress appropriately and blend in with you and your guests
To be considerate in all circumstances
Tips for Couples (from your photographer)
Your wedding day should be one of the happiest days of your life. Every wedding is going to be unique and therefore there are no right or wrong ways of doing things. Having said this – there are a few tips of things to think about and to avoid. These are some of them:
Preparation – use ONE forum (notebook, iPad, phone) to keep notes. When you see something you like – make a note. Keep Contact numbers. Recommendations. Etc
Communicate – keep everything on record and keep the lines of coms open between yourself and your suppliers. Especially your hearts’ desires 🙂
Spread the love – DELEGATE – choose your bossiest bridesmaid and let her “project manage” the bits and bobs you are prepared to let go of.
– Obviously VERY NB – as these are what remains once the champagne has been consumed, the blooms wilted and the last dance danced! Choose well and choose carefully.
– Follow your heart initially and find someone who’s images you LOVE.
– When you’ve found someone meet or speak to them to see if you are good match. You are going to be spending a lot of fairly intimate moments together 🙂
– Try to put together a mood board of images you like. But remember, each photographer has their own unique style – which is hopefully why you’ve chosen them. This mood board just helps give your photographer an idea of where your head (and heart) is at. I always suggest a board on Pinterest that both you and your photographer can pin references to
