How to Plan Your Wedding Photography – 4 Steps to Memorable Wedding Pictures

March 24th, 2009 · No Comments

As one of the most important decisions you will make concerning
the big day, planning your wedding photography should be
considered with care. Follow these four steps to ensure your
wedding pictures capture these priceless wedding day memories.

Select Your Photography Style
How do you envision your wedding photographs? Wedding Photographers generally fall into three stylistic categories: traditional, photojournalist, or a combination of both. Traditional photographers are practiced in obtaining great portraits and posed shots. For more can did shots that document the day’s emotions and all the behind-the-scenes action, you may lean towards the photojournalistic style of photography (a hot trend for today’s weddings). For brides who simply cannot decide, seek a wedding photographer who can offer the perfect mix.

Consider the Cost
This really is one area inwhich you should avoid cutting corners, as your photographs will
be one of the few keepsakes you can actually take from your
wedding. If budget is a concern, consider ordering the most
basic package, but avoid hiring an inexperienced photographer to
save money.

Hire your Wedding Photographer
Do your research, and compile a list of potentials and commence the “meet and
greet.” When meeting with potential photographers, be sure to
review his or her work and remember to consider the importance
of personality. Your photographer will capture some of the best
shots behind the scenes, so you must feel comfortable in working
with this person and inviting them backstage. Trust your
instinct: if you find anything disagreeable about working with
this person, keep looking. And don’t forget to get everything in
writing.

Plan the Wedding Pictures
Well before your wedding day, make sure you have considered the must-have
photography shots and their execution. You should discuss these
details with your photographer so that he or she will be
familiar with the site location, the VIPs of the wedding
(attendants, parents etc.), and the best and most un-obtrusive
way to get these important shots.

Consider every aspect of your wedding day and how you would like
it captured. From the pre-ceremony preparation, to your walk
down the aisle, to your “I Dos,” to your first dance and finally
to your departure, make sure to discuss the perfect shots for
each special moment. Throughout the planning process, be in the
lookout out for images that catch your eye, and consider
bringing clips to your photographer.
