How to: Get the perfect wedding photographs from the perfect wedding photographer (in 5 EASY STEPS).
Hiring a wedding photographer could be one of the most important decisions you make during the wedding planning process. Your grandmother might complain about the amount of salt in the food once or twice, but it will be forgotten. Or your aunt’s third cousin’s daughter might say the flowers smell bad, but it will also be forgotten. But the photos and videos taken during this joyous occasion will stay with you forever and ever! We don’t want to alarm you, so don’t worry! We’re just here to help you hire the best wedding photographer possible and get the best out of him/her for your wedding!
Here’s Step 1 in the 5 part series on how to get the perfect wedding photographs from your perfect wedding photographer.
1. To Candid or not to Candid, that is the question!
This is the basic question you need to ask yourself. Do you and your family prefer straightforward shots as it was in your parents’ times, or do you want to capture those light, fleeting moments that truly capture the essence and spirit of your wedding day? As can be seen from the current trend, more and more couples are opting for candid photography, even though it might be a costlier option. The beauty and uniqueness of candid wedding photographs are truly worth their weight in gold. Some couples even go the extra mile and mould the entire wedding around the photography. With an exotic location or a limited guest list or an extraordinary set of events planned for the wedding day, these couples get the maximum from their candid style wedding photographer. If the budget permits, you can even look at the option of hiring a candid photographer in addition to a standard photographer so that you have all your angles covered!
