Congratulations on your upcoming marriage! You have made the wise choice to hire a professional wedding photographer to help you capture and keep precious memories from your wedding and reception. We want your experience with us to be the best it can possibly, be but most clients are either unprepared or afraid to ask questions. To help you, here are some of the most common concerns for photography clients.
If a friend of your pictures I think you have a better chance of success going and fun, relaxed photo shoot than a serious, posed session. Even if you had to come back from another photo session, because the first batch did not turn out well – Oh, well. Consider it another special outing with the one you love.
You may have heard that you will need to meet the photographer in person. Yes, you have to do that because you would like to know more about the photographer. You would like to ensure that he or she will be a nice person to work with.
What is an adequate photographic equipment for a wedding photographer in essex? Simple: the top, the best, the most expensive. No way around it. It is useless for me to list camera models here, because especially with digital photography, cameras evolve very quickly and before long this article would be dated. Instead choose a brand among the world’s five best (Leica, Hasselblad, Mamiya, Canon, Nikon), look at the top 3 most expensive cameras… and pick one. That is the camera you will be expected to use at a wedding. Anything less will not be top notch photo equipment.
There is great satisfaction in being able to plan and pull off your own destination wedding, but is it worth all of the organization, phone calls, websites, and amount s of time and stress on your end? I don’t know about you, but I don’t go to a friend to get my teeth cleaned, (my dentist is very nice), I don’t ask the Sephora make -up specialist to help me with the brakes on my car, (she could make them look prettier, but probably not going to stop the car any better). There are so many great destination wedding designers out there that can help you design and pick a great wedding package, perfect resort, and arrange an incredible group rate, along with travel arrangements for you, for not much more money than it would cost you to do on your own.
No matter whether you have a brand new flash with automatic, internal zoom or an older flash gun that has to be manually set, the goal is the same, to match the angle of flash coverage to the lens you are using.
A very important thing when doing wedding photography is to make sure that you blend in the background. To do this, turn off your camera sound. The beeps and shutter sounds will completely ruin the moment. Make sure that the sound is completely off at all times.
My advice to you is to fully understand this simple concept. Even if you are using fully automatic units there may come a day when you have to set the zoom manually, it is then you need to understand it.
