There is no doubt that your wedding day is one of the most important days of
your life and of course you would want perfect
wedding photographs. These photographs will become permanent reminders of this special day,
and something you'll want to share with family and friends. Capturing these memories is something that shouldn't be
left to chance and choosing an experienced photographer is the best way to guarantee that you
will be able to relive your wedding day for years to come.
Maybe there's a family member or friend that does photography as a hobby.
Before trusting them with your memories, decide how important your photographs are. Your
friend might have a fancy camera but do they have the experience, the time and patience to
photograph an entire wedding? Do they know how to cope with varying light conditions? Do they
have all the right equipment to get close-ups of flowers and the wedding cake? Do they have
the knowledge and technology to do touch-ups and post editing? If you have doubts about any
one of these questions think again. Imagine how you will feel when you're standing at the
altar and you spot your friend in the back of the church trying to fix a broken shutter. A
professional photographer will have the experience and equipment to deal with any situation
that may occur.
So how do you choose the right photographer? When you start looking you will quickly learn there are plenty of
photographers to choose from. The first thing you should do is check their portfolios and
ensure that their style of photography appeals to you. Next you should set up a meeting with
each of your potential photographers so you can get to know them as individuals. It takes a
lot more than just pointing and shooting a camera to photograph a wedding. You will need
someone that you feel at ease with. There is a good chance that this photographer will be
able to interact well with your guests and also make them feel at ease. You'll also need
someone who will be able to anticipate your every move, knowing where the next potentially
great shot will be. Finally, a wedding photographer should be able to tell a story with the
photographs. You want people who weren't at your wedding to be able to feel the mood and
share your special day.
