So, having taken the time to research wedding photographers in your area, asking any questions and agreeing on the package, it is also worth looking at what you can do to support the photographers success on the big day.
If you have chosen a Lancashire wedding photographer, one form Liverpool or any town or city really, they will all have a set of standards that they work to, as well as things that they will look out for when searching for the perfect photo opportunity. With the following in mind, you can help them to get the best pictures possible, making their job a little bit easier and your day less stressful:
If you have requested photos of yourself and the bridesmaids getting ready for the ceremony, consider the venue and how big the bridal party is going to be. Preparing can sometimes be chaotic, even with lots of people on hand to help with hair and make-up.
As such, think about how much space is going to be available for the photographer and their equipment. Also, consider the time available between them arriving and leaving for the church or venue. Plan what needs to happen in this time, and what shots you would like the photographer to take, to make sure it all happens as it should.
Bride and Groom pictures
This is where you really get to see the photographer’s style, as they support and guide you through the best poses, having considered your input from your initial meetings. The key to the success of these pictures is to ensure that you have discussed the time available, as well as that needed for your idea, and come to an agreeable compromise.
Make sure that you have worked out a clear list of what groupings of friends and family you require. Again, time is an important factor, and you will need to consider the must-have photographs, leaving moments for other shots over the course of the day.
Once at the reception, consider where the wedding photographer will be situated, as they need a bit of space to walk around and take pictures at a variety of angles, without blocking anyone’s view.
The infamous first dance
Relax and enjoy your moment as a newly married couple, as it really makes for the best photographs. If you are overly nervous and just shuffle on the spot, the pictures of that moment may reflect your emotions, so have fun.
