The wedding day marks the first day of a couple’s journey as husband and wife. There are a lot of things going on in a span of 5 to 10 hours and if you are the one getting married, you would want to capture every moment yourself if only you’re not too rattled about what’s happening around you and what’s going to happen next. The good thing is, you most probably have months prior to the date to prepare and there are a lot of help here and there to do the job of capturing the perfect moments while you tie the knot, you just need to STOP, LOOK, LISTEN and ENJOY.
- Stop And Reflect On What You Want
Since the planning and organizing part of your wedding may become too overwhelming, give yourself some time to breathe,relax and just focus on what you really want. If you are still confused about what you want, the internet will be your best friend starting from now on. Try to search for different wedding photos online and choose the ones that strike you the most. Those pictures you’ve chosen are most likely the ones you want to see on your wedding pictures as well. Don’t forget about them, save them in your phone or in your computer.
- Look For Perfection
As they say, there is no perfect wedding, but that does not mean that you are not going to give some effort trying. At this point, you will be bombarded with different choices and there are just so many things to consider. Check out all your options, ask your friends if they have wedding photographers to recommend, search online and visit the studios so that you can personally meet your future photographers, see if they have a package that suits your budget and check out their sample work. Try to compare their work with the pictures you got online. Do they reach your expectations? Scout for the perfect place for your wedding ceremony, post nuptial shoot and reception as well. Consider the background, the lighting and the mood that you will have on your wedding day as you look at the camera.
- Listen And Communicate
Most wedding photographers have a system on how they are going to do their job.Although it would seem like they already know what they are doing, they are clueless about your personal preferences. Set up a meeting with your photographers and talk about specific details like, your call time, the time table, who are the actual photographers on your wedding day, what specific shots you want to include on their shot list and the places you’ll have to go to.
- Enjoy Yourself
Weddings are stressful because some things just don’t go the way you expect them to. It’s ok to go crazy during the planning stage; but always remind yourself that on the day of your wedding, you’ll go with the flow, enjoy the fruits of your months’ worth of work and cherish the moment with the love of your life. Your smile is the biggest factor for the quality photos you’ll have.
Choosing the best wedding photographer for you may require some effort on your part. In the end, when you see those gorgeous wedding pictures, you’ll say that everything was worth it.
