So what exactly is candid wedding photography?
In one of the weddings that I recently photographed, I had the bride’s mother coming up to me and asking “Are you really clicking any pictures, coz I don’t see you around at all”. Though I was offended by that question of hers at the moment, I later on realized that she does not really understand what candid photography is and how exactly it is different from regular photography. So this post of mine is dedicated to her and all those who do not understand what we, as in, candid photographers do.
Candid photography, as the word suggests is that form of photography where moments are captured without creating a posed appearance. That means the bride and groom or the guests do not have to put up that fake smile just because there is a camera flashing at them. It is your candid photographer’s job to click a picture at all those right moments through-out the ceremony and all the bride and groom have to do is enjoy the most important day of their lives.
So why should you hire a candid photographer?
- You should hire a candid photographer if it is wedding moments that you want to see in the album instead of you trying to fake a smile with the guests at the wedding
- You should hire a candid photographer if you want the rituals of your wedding to be captured as and how it happened
- Last, but not the least, you should hire a candid photographer if it is the best moments you had with your close-ones that you need to be captured instead of the pictures of random guests enjoying their meal at your wedding
