bride & groom
When it comes to your big day, you just want everything to run smoothly. These handy hints have been created to ensure that you get the most from your wedding photography.
- Make sure the room where your bridal party is getting ready doesn’t become overcrowded and cluttered. The more space the better.
- Avoid, if possible, wearing glitter on your skin or hair. In the sunlight and when using the camera’s flash, the glitter causes a reflection and white dots will appear on your photographs. It would take months to Photoshop these dots out, so it’s best to save the shine for later.
- Always keep a close eye on the time. Before the big day, we’ll discuss the running order in detail and make sure everything goes off without a hitch.
- Prepare a list of family photos beforehand. Then nominate someone from the bridal party with a loud voice to help with gathering the groups.
- Leave enough time for the newlywed’s shoot. It is these photographs that will adorn your walls and be given as gifts to your nearest and dearest. The more time you can set aside, the better the end result.
- If you are planning any special surprises throughout the course of the day, please let me know in advance. I don’t want to miss the moment.
- I don’t mind if guests also want to take photographs throughout the course of the day. However, they can sometimes be a little over eager and block that perfect shot. You want your invited guests to share in the day, rather than starting at their camera’s LCD screen.
- Let me know if you have any specific requests for particular shots and I will do my best to get them. Just remember to be realistic.
- Don’t be afraid of the camera (or me). This will result in a very natural feel to your photographs.
