When scheduling a photographer, try to keep in mind what makes you happiest. When we take our own personal pictures, we usually stick to holidays, parties, birthdays and family gatherings. This is a nice theme to carry through into your studio session. Doing this also gives you loads of room to determine what you want everyone to wear.
One question I am asked all the time is:”How can one photographer charge $700 for an entire day and another photographer charge $3500?” Do you get what you pay for? Does more expensive mean better? Does less expensive mean bad? Lets start with some basic information on how the photography industry has changed in the past five years.
Encourage your wedding photographer to take more candid or action shots than posed photos. At a wedding ceremony and reception where the official photographer took nothing but candid shots, the resulting photos look like they had come out of a dream, or were stills from a movie. If you can, get a photographer who has more experience with moving subjects.
Rather than having the actual day wedding photography and videography Singapore service put together the albums for you, request digital copies of any and all photos on a CD instead. You can then print out the photos yourself and put the album together with your significant other.
Clearly set the expectations for photographs well before the ceremony. During your meetings with the bride and groom, establish the style of photographs they want to receive when the big day is over. Discuss what look and feel the photos should take on and any post-processing techniques they may be fond of. Do they want color, black-and-white, or sepia-toned images exclusively, or a mix of all three styles? Do they want a photojournalistic or stylized fashion look to the images or a more traditional formal approach? These are all details to nail down well before the wedding day arrives.
When the big day comes arrive early. Make sure you have plenty of spare batteries and memory if you are using digital or film if you are using a film camera. Also have a spare camera as back up. If your camera fails it will be embarrassing.
So now you’re all set for your big day. With these tips in your back pocket, you can revel in marital bliss without having to worry about your makeup!
