Wedding Photography: Preserving the Memories
A person's wedding can be one of the most important
times in their life. They will have memories that they want to treasure forever
and then pass on to their children. Wedding photography helps them do this.
Having pictures taken at the wedding and then at the reception can capture
those precious memories in freeze-frame and help you keep them forever.
Pictures are important so you want to be sure you get good photos, high
quality photos that you can enjoy forever.
Most people will have a
wedding book designed out of the collection of the best wedding photos. Usually
the photographer will do this for you. You will then have a beautiful scrapbook
from your wedding to hold your memories.
Choosing a photographer is a
very important step in your wedding pictures. You want someone experienced that
will do an excellent job for you. It's possible that you may be on a budget and
price may be a factor as well.
How Do You Choose a Wedding
There are several things you are going to want to
look for with the most important being the quality of the work. It would be
great if you could find a photographer that you had seen in action, perhaps at
a family member or friend's wedding. The hardest part of choosing a wedding
photographer is that you sign a contract and agree to pay before you have ever
seen the photos. That's how it works in the world of wedding photography; you
must make your decision based of faith in the photographer. So how do you make
a decision like this?
First, you are going to
want to look at referrals. Ask your friends or family members who did their
weddings and start compiling a list. You will also need to verify that these
people are still photographing. Ask everyone you can about their wedding and
their wedding pictures. Most people will even let you see their wedding photos
and you can check out the photographer's work.
Aside from samples from people you know, you can ask the
photographer himself about samples. You can call the photographers on your list
and do an interview over the phone or make an appointment to meet in person.
This is your chance to ask the photographer any questions you may have such as
their experience, what training they have and what different types of
photography they have studied. If you are doing an in-person interview, the
photographer can show you portfolios of samples of their work. If doing a phone
interview, that ends well, you may want to go in person and see a portfolio.
Schedule and Appointment
When you have chose the
photographer you think you want to use, you will have to schedule several
appointments. The bride and groom, the bride's parents and anyone else who may
be taking part in paying for the wedding should be present at these meetings
regarding the wedding photography.
At these meetings, you will discuss
price, payment schedule and possible deposits. Next you will discuss the plan
for taking the photos. Many people also get video and digital photographs now.
Do you want these? Will your photographer be able to provide these? Will there
be extra fees?
Many people have specific plans as to what they want
pictures of (e.g. bride and father coming down the aisle, bride and groom,
rings exchanging, the kiss, the bridesmaids, etc.) This is your chance to get
all this written down so that the photographer is sure to get all the shots you
want. Other people give their photographers a little more freedom to decide
what pictures will be good to take.
Be sure to ask any questions you
have about this important event. Your wedding photography is important to you
so don't hesitate to be clear about what you want.
