Photography Advice

With so many decisions to make, black and white, candid or posed, videography, and others, it is easy to get confused when trying to choose a photographer for your wedding. We all know the traditional shots that include posed photographs of the bride and groom, the bride and her parents, the groom with his parents, and so on. However, when you start interviewing photographers, you will quickly discover that you have multiple options.

One option is to mix things up a bit. You can still enjoy the traditional posed photographs but you might also consider having the photographer add in some candid shots. These are especially nice for the reception where shots of children feeding each other cake, the couple sneaking a kiss when they think no one is watching, or the mother of the bride and groom are giving each other a hug are all special. Just be sure you choose a photographer that is willing to be flexible.

The timing of photography is crucial to its success and typically, you will find that most photographers work on much the same schedule:

The photographs before the wedding are great but only if you and your future spouse prefer not to see each other prior to the start of the wedding. However, a common trend becoming more and more popular is couples that do spend time alone before the start of the wedding. This a nice time for photographs but it is strictly your choice.

The time between the wedding ceremony and the reception is a very popular time where the entire wedding party will stay in the church for photographs. At this time, the rest of the guests are at the reception waiting. The key is to get the photographs done so the guests are not waiting for long amounts of time.

While the reception is going on is another standard time when photographs are taken. Typically, the bride and groom will need to decide along with the photographer how much time they want to spend on this in that it does take time away from guests.

Finally, after the reception, there are the photographs of the couple when getting ready to leave for the honeymoon.

If you are having a small, intimate wedding or on a very tight budget, hiring a photographer may not be an option. In this case, you might want to check with family and friends to see if there is someone skilled enough to take quality photos. If not, you can always check with your local university to see if they have a student in the film department that would be willing to give you a break on price.
