Everyone wants their wedding to be perfect. Wedding photos enable us to relive our special moments and share them with our loved ones – but you only get one chance to get the perfect photos. Don’t make the mistake of not spending enough time to decide the details of your wedding photography before your special day. To make sure your wedding photos perfect, simply follow these handy tips put together by ServiceMarket:
Share names of close family members:
Your close relatives and friends might feel offended if there are no photos of them in your wedding album! Make sure the photographer knows who the VIPs are and ask him or her to focus on them throughout the event.
Specify details of your location/s in advance:
Many couples now choose to pick exotic outdoor spots for a wedding photoshoot, in additional to the photos taken during the actual wedding event. If you would like some additional photos done at a special location, such as the spot where you first met, give your photographer all the details in advance so that they can make the necessary arrangements including camera settings and lighting. You could even choose to decorate the photographer’s studio according to a certain theme.
Shortlist some poses:
The photographer will ask you to stand in certain poses during the photoshoot. However, if you want to try something different, you should do some research online on your own. Pick out some of your favourite photos to emulate on the day.
Make a list of your special moments:
Be sure to tell your photographers about all the special moments that you’d like them to cover. For example, let them know in advance that you want them to be there and ready to get the best shots of your cake cutting ceremony, exchange of vows and your first dance. This way, you know that you will have all the important moments captured.
Decide details of group photos:
Since you and the photographer will be pressed for time on your wedding day, you should finalize the number of groups photos in advance. Make a list of all the families and groups of friends with whom you’d like to have the photos taken and share it with your photographer.
A lot of time goes into setting up the venue with flowers, lights and other decorations. You can ask the photographer to take photos of the decorations from different angles to capture the ambiance of the event.
Traditional, funky or both:
You should decide whether you want the photographer to take more traditional, casual or funky group photos. Make it clear in advance what type/s of photos you want so that you can be sure that you will have all the photos you want. Remember the more guidance you give, the better, as the photographer will have a better idea of your expectations.
