After careful planning, consideration, and perhaps more than your fair share of headaches, you’ve decided to hire a professional photographer. So, all that’s left is to leave it up to them, right?
Actually, there are many ways you can help your wedding photographer capture the best moments of your wedding day and turn them into breathtaking photos to impress even the toughest of critics. If you’re looking to help out your photographer, here’s a few tips to keep in mind.
Don’t Forget to Feed Them
More than likely your guests don’t want to be photographed stuffing their faces at your reception, right? When your guests sit down to eat, this is the perfect time to make sure your photographer is fed as well. It’s going to be a long day for them, and you’ll want to make sure they’re well taken care of.
Be Honest About Your Budget
If you only have a couple thousand dollars to spend, let the photographer know. This way, they can work with you to set realistic expectations and strategize how to get the most out of your budget.
Lighting is Everything
Lighting can make or break even the most professionally-captured photos. Before choosing an event, look online to see if they have pictures of recent events they’ve hosted. By doing this, you can get an idea of how the lighting will look in real time and if it will compliment your visual style.
Don’t Be Afraid of Your Dress
Confidence is key when wearing a bridal gown. Don’t worry yourself to pieces about getting it dirty. You’re only going to wear it once, so have fun! Plus, the chances of you ruining it are slim to none.
Trust Your Photographer
Your professional photographer wants to produce wedding photos that you’ll love and cherish forever. It’s this person’s job, and it’s what you’re paying him/her to do. There may be times when they ask you to step out of your comfort zone when posing or picking a location, but trust that it’s all a part of the process of delivering the best possible results.
These are a few but not the only points to consider when hiring a professional photographer. Contact Limelight Entertainment and start your wedding preparations today!
