Bidvine asked me a few questions about wedding photography and ensuring that your photos are timeless. You can read some of my article here but if you are interested in learning more, you can visit the post by following the link below:
How far in advance should I book a wedding photographer?
Try and book as far as you can as the best photographers get booked upon years in advance and the best venues get booked even quicker.
I still have a few vacancies for next year but August and April are full. Some photographers don’t like to take bookings more than two years ahead as they do not like to commit as circumstances can change unexpectedly.
Will a wedding photographer take photos of more than just the ceremony?
Most good photographers like to take photos of the whole day so the couple can see the journey from the day. Starting from the bride’s preparations, guests arriving at the venue, the ceremony, signing the registrar, speeches cutting the cake and the first dance. Also, candid shots are very important. Your photographer will photograph the guests during the ceremony, guest during the speeches and the emotions of the guests.
Why is having a professional wedding photographer important?
A professorial photographer will get the best out of the day and knows how to make your guests look during the group shots. They’ll ask the men to put their hands in their pockets and ask the women to place their hands on their hips. They’ll place the bride’s family next to the bride and so on. Light during the ceremony most churches do not allow flash a pro photographer will know what settings to use so the pictures are bright and not grainy. A pro is also fully insured for indemnity and public liability.
How can I make sure my wedding pictures will be timeless?
A very good question and not easy to answer. I guess one of the most important things is not to follow trends. Or, if you do, make sure you have all the basic shots taken as well.
Where have all the tin cans gone that used to be on the back of wedding cars? Thank God we no longer see a wedding couple superimposed over the ceremony.
But most importantly the photographer must capture those unexpected moments. Such as the bride’s mother laughing, the proud father giving his daughter away, walking up the aisle, kids playing, smiling, and the reaction from the speeches. All the happy moments from the day are what makes a great timeless photo gallery!
