Weddings remain undisputed as the one occasion where every one wishes to appear the best. The biggest smiles, the best clothing and the happiest moments are all there in good measure in a wedding. Capturing it calls for an eye for photography, the skills to get the best click and the equipment. Needless to say, wedding pictures are cherished for a lifetime. It is perhaps one of those few occasions when those showing the pictures share the same admiration as those viewing them. Choose right and freeze your happy feelings for ever.
Professionals possess expertise and brilliance, not just flashes of brilliance
The snaps you finally receive from a photographer will find their way to social media where you would be proud to share. The pictures will definitely enter an album. Would you settle for poorly captured images? A professional photographer knows the best angles, the best moments to freeze in frames. With candid photography, overwhelming photo ops, it makes more sense not to miss out on the best moments. A bumbling and unsure amateur will cut you off from the best memories. Choose a professional. Spend time with him going through the programme. This helps him to plan better.
Red flag inappropriate snaps of previous photo shoots of photographer
Carefully go through the previous snaps of photographer. It will reveal what he has not. Candid and posed photography need to be checked out. Some photographers capture candid moments better, while it is the other way round with some. A well experienced and professional photographer is one who can handle both types. Sample photos would always involve the best clicks of the photographer. So, if you do come across many clicks with odd or awkward moments in the frames, then you need to red flag the same to the photographer. Tell him what you do not want to see. Some people are endowed to look good in snaps clicked from all angles. Some look best in profile view, whereas others look good in portraits. Let him know about it.
Proper equipment – indoors, outdoors
The equipment used to click is as important as the person behind it. When asked, a passionate photographer will launch into a lengthy discourse on his equipment. That is a good indication. Probe for the kind of equipment that he plans to use, whether they are most suited for indoors or outdoors. Some models of cameras produce amazing pictures with sufficient lighting, whereas others do not. Ensure that the photographer is equipped to shoot with the right equipment.
A wedding is a solemn occasion, which will have moments of fun after the rites of marriage. The whole occasion needs to be captured in a manner that reflects the sheer joy and happiness, the spirit of the guests and the promise of a wonderful union. Choose the most suitable photographer to highlight the event in albums.
