- Find a photographer you love
You need to think about the type of images you’d like, the kind of images you’d want your wedding album to be full of, which is why looking at a photographers portfolio and their style is so important. You also need to remember that your photographer will probably be one of the people you spend the most time with at your wedding; so meet them before and make sure you can get on and share ideas.
- Trust your photographer
A lot of people feel that they need to give their photographer a huge list of every photograph they want. But save yourself some time and remember, your photographer has done this before, they will be well aware of what shots to get. Allow the photographer to do their job and both you and they will enjoy the day more resulting in better photographs!
- Think about time
You might not realise how long it will take to get group shots done or how long your photographer likes to spend with the bride getting ready, so talk to them! They’ve done this before and will be able to help make sure you get the time and the shots you want.
- Use an engagement shoot to your advantage
If your photographer offers an engagement shoot then take it! Not only will you get some adorable photographs of the two of you; but you’ll be able to get more comfortable in front of a camera. You’ll get a feel for how the photographer works and they’ll get a feel for your dynamics as a couple and what you’re really looking for in your photos.
- Get creative & be open to ideas
Photographers are creative by nature so be open to their ideas, don’t be afraid to try something a bit different because it often results in amazing photographs.
