5 Things You Should Trust Your Wedding Photographer With
Trust is the key ingredient to any relationship and this is true for the relationship you have with your wedding photographer. There’s a reason you chose them to capture the most important day of your life. While you may have a vision of how you want some of your images to turn out, for the most part, you are going to have to put a lot of trust in your photographer. Trusting your wedding photographer a little more in these main areas will not only result in better images for you to remember your big day by but will also relieve you of some stress as well.
1. Choosing the Location of the Shot
You wedding photographer will have taken the time to familiarize themselves with your reception location or areas around your ceremony site to find the best places to photograph. They’ll know where gets the best light and where the best scenery is. And being a “people-focused” photographer, my first goal is to make sure that you look amazing and placing you in the best light. I focus on the people first… location second. (but no worries- I will be sure to capture the full beauty of your venue as well!)
2. Time of Day to Shoot
Lighting is key to creating beautiful images and using the natural light of the sun will produce the best lighting setting but that doesn’t mean any time of the day will give you the same results. Your photographer will know what time of day will be best to take those gorgeous outdoor shots that won’t leave harsh shadows on your face or when to sneak outside to take some night inspired shots. If you choose a venue because of the beautiful scenery- you may have to be flexible on the time of day you get those gorgeous scenery shots. 🙂
Trust your photographer to know what pose is the most flattering for you. They can see how the light is illuminating you and what is in the background. While some photographers will take into consideration your picture ideas, you shouldn’t be offended if they shoot down your ideas. Most times you’ll be working with limited time and light and you don’t want to waste much of either on your big day. When it comes to posing- I do more guiding rather than a stiff pose. I focus on “real” rather than perfect. (You can check out my portfolio to see what I mean!)
4. Editing Your Photos
Trust your photographer’s creative eye during the editing process. They will know which images will look best in black and white, color, cropped and which ones to add special effects to, if any. Part of the editing process is a part of their style and this is one of the reasons you hired them. Trust them to use their skills to make each image stunning.
5. Handling Printing Your Photos
Your photographer knows where to get prints made and probably has a long-term relationship with a reputable printing company. The worst thing you can do is have a stunning image, order a large print and find the colors are off, the image is blurred or it simply looks dull. Knowing where to get your prints made, what size they should be done in and which ones will look best in your albums, wall art or thank you cards is part of the package you get when you hired a professional photographer. Trust them and listen to what they think will look best for what you want.
