Wedding Photography Done Right

wedding photographer HertfordshireA wedding is a holy occasion of the merger of two different individuals ties by a vow to love and stick to each other in happiness and sadness. This moment is something that most, if not all, couples would want to be recorded in their album of life, as the start of their journey together.

To be holding a wedding photography Hertfordshire is an honor, but unfortunately, some and apparently many photographers failed to do the important things and do at least one of the things listed here.

Pose for every pictures

Don’t. Don’t make your couple stand and smile for a particular pose as if they are in a studio. The point of ever inviting and hiring you as a wedding photographer Hertfordshire during the occasion is to record the moment in still pictures to be remembered in 20 or maybe 50 years down the road, not just them in their wedding outfits.

Totally inexperienced

This, well, happens to many amateurs and beginners. Thinking that taking photos in wedding photography and other events are the same things is a BIG mistake. Tell you why: being experienced means you have the grasp of what couples usually like and want in their wedding albums. It also means you know when and where you should take your pictures and the hinge of how good wedding pictures should turn out like.

Get the experience by tailing along experienced ones, or pose as a free photographer for your friends if you are not sure of your skills yet and ask for their honest opinions. Your photos can also serve as a good wedding gift.

Proper discussion

You should not be missing this part. It is for the sake of good and smooth communication between you and your clients. There are a lot to talk about aside from when and where the occasion will be held.

Discuss the style that you both will agree on.

If you are unsure, show them your portfolios and ensure that your quality will always be consistent like what you show them. Ask if they will be comfortable for dressing sessions; many couples have mentioned that even these moments are touching and they treasure these pictures very much and there many wedding photography Hertfordshire done with this moment being missed.

This is also the chance to warm up to you clients. If they are comfortable with having you around during the whole party, they will be able to act more naturally and smiles will not look awkward in pictures. This will also affect the dressing session pictures.

Preparation

You cameras will not jump into the case by itself. Make sure you have everything ready if possible, the night before. Check your films, lighting equipments, availability of extra cameras, lens and everything. Prepare for worst case scenario. Check out the wedding venue and try taking shots of different angles. See if there’s anything you like and can be incorporated during the actual ocassion.

‘Too into the job’

Some photographers are very dedicated in their work and does practically anything to get the right shot, from extreme places to well… embarrassing themselves. I’ve seen many wedding photographers bend and stand in ways I do not know how to explain to get that shot. These do not only disrupt the event but also pulls you into the center of attention, which is something that your client won’t be happy about most of the time.
