Weddings are a special day. A big day for family and friends, generally the day is all about the bride. Pictures are a vital part in preserving your memorable day. As a wedding photographer, I would like to share a few tips with you to get the best pictures.
Be Organized (Well, as Much as Possible)
I know weddings are chaotic, busy and at times simply overwhelming. Being organized helps the day go smooth. If you are still preparing dresses or searching for jewelry to wear, you are wasting valuable time. Trying to finish last details an hour before the wedding causes stress. You want to enjoy every minute of your wedding day.
Generally, everyone loves a wedding. Ask family and friends to help with your big day. Designate micro committees to help with any last minute errands, intervene in any type of problems, or ensure everything is running as planned. Micro committees are just a fancy title. The committee can be made up of one or two responsible people.
The Best Photos
For the best photo know what you want. As I photographer, one of my biggest frustrations is checking in with a client without a response. If I email or call you, I would like to know the type of photos you want. I would rather have a client bombard me with photo ideas than tell me, “I don’t know”. I cannot provide you with the best photos of your big day without knowing what you want.
Preparing and designating allows you more time to relax. With emotions running high, you want a happy day with minimal stress. I always say, do not expect perfection out of chaos.
