Knowing what type of photos you want is going to be a priority. This will allow you to hire a photographer who specializes in photographing these types of photos. It also sets up great expectations for the type of photos you’ll be getting back! Do you gravitate towards more formal and editorial portraits? Or do you like the look of natural and candid photos?
Once you decide what style of shooting you like, you can also think about the type of editing you like. Some people like “light and airy” while others like “dark and moody.” Personally, I think lighter photos are timeless and truly capture the romantic feel of wedding days!Now you can start contacting photographers who fit the style of shooting and editing you like! Even with just following this first tip, you are setting yourself up for success. When you hire a wedding photographer who specializes in the style you like, you already know you’re going to enjoy how the photos come out.
Once you’ve decided on the style of photographs you like, it’s time to start thinking about locations. If you’re having an outdoor ceremony, consider taking some photos in front of a beautiful scenic backdrop. Really put a lot of thought into the area of the location you choose to get married at. It’s not only important to make sure you have a suitable reception space for guests, but to choose a location that offers plenty of beautiful scenic backdrops!
If you’re having a more indoor affair, look for interesting architectural features that will add visual interest to your photos. Really pay attention to the lighting, envision yourself taking photos in the location, and see if you like the idea of having your portraits in that particular venue.
I believe that loving your photos for years and years is about more than just pretty photos. Because when you look back on your wedding photos, you are going to remember how you feel. HAVE FUN! Your wedding day is a once-in-a-lifetime event, so make sure to enjoy every moment. Soak up the feeling of being surrounded by your family and friends and trust that your photographer is capturing those emotions. The experience is absolutely a part of loving your wedding photos.
There you have it! By following these tips, you’ll be sure to get stunning wedding photos that you’ll cherish forever.
