December 14, 2011 0 Comments Wedding Photography by Administrator

You must have heard a lot about destination weddings because they are getting to be very popular these days. It is very tempting indeed to have your wedding at a special destination and not where either of you live which is the accepted practice. However, you need to decide whether it is really a good idea for you to have such an expensive outing. Remember that your entire budget for your big day will have to include all sorts of things such as fancy outfits, wedding invitations and bonbonnieres and you might not be able to manage things on such a large scale.

A destination wedding is like one big party where your family and friends can join you as you celebrate getting married. It usually involves everybody going to a lovely destination for a week or so during which you will also get married. Beaches, tropical destinations or ski resorts are all popular as venues for these events because the entire group can have a great deal of fun here. In addition, these places usually have the entire infrastructure you need in order to make sure that everything goes off well.

Have you given any thought to what kind of wedding photographs you want to have taken? An album of photographs and a video will serve as lasting mementoes of your big day and you will have a great time revisiting them from time to time. In fact, these photos will also capture various moments of the wedding that you might otherwise forget. You’ll need to take some time out from ordering wedding invitations, bonbonnieres and other things in order to book the best photographer you can afford. You should also decide upon the theme of your photo album because you’ll have to choose a photographer accordingly.

Most wedding albums have a pretty picture of the bridal couple posed perfectly and smiling at the camera, but these albums unfortunately tend to be very commonplace. There is a growing trend to take outrageous looking pictures just to make a wedding photo album that looks exciting and memorable. As a result, lots of newly married couples follow the new trend of taking their wedding photography in the rain.

Top Tips to Help In Choosing the Best Photographer

October 30, 2011 0 Comments Wedding Photography by Administrator

Weddings are very joyous occasions but they also involve a great deal of work because there are many different things to be organized, each one as important as the other. Yes, you do have to select really attractive wedding invitations (and remember to send them out on time!) and organize every last detail of the décor including flowers, seating and even bonbonnieres. However, you need to select the best photographer available because this person will be able to create lasting images of your special day that you can see time and time again in the future. It is not at all easy to choose the best wedding photographer because there are many different things to be taken into account. For instance, the best photographer will not be able to do a good job at your wedding if this person’s forte is romantic images when your wedding has a very peppy and contemporary theme. Therefore, you should have a detailed discussion with your photographer before finalizing on that person. Take along copies of your wedding invitations as well as pictures of the kind of décor, flowers and bonbonnieres you will be using so that the photographer has a good idea about what your preferences are. You should also check the experience level of the person by looking through his or her portfolio. It would also be great if the person can offer you references because you simply cannot be too careful when it comes to your wedding photos. Many people also interact with prospective photographers before hiring them in order to check whether they get along well. If the person has an abrasive manner or an untidy appearance you wouldn’t want him or her mingling with your guests, would you? You should also select a person who has high quality equipment to take the photos or videos and who preferably arrives with assistance, proper lighting etc. You should also find out whether the person has enough backup equipment so that there are no problems on the wedding day. Obviously this will cost you more money and you should discuss this subject in great detail. If you are dealing with a wedding photography shop that offers low cost packages then you have to find out exactly which person will be sent to record your event. In fact, you should spend the time to meet the individuals in order to assess their capabilities. Many of them will be below par but you might also find one who is a very talented and can take excellent photos. If the person you select is hesitant to sign a contract then you should take this as a bad sign. Contracts are of the utmost importance because there is a lot of money involved and you need a service guarantee. Besides, you would have spent a lot of money and effort on all the details of your wedding from the wedding invitation and outfits to the décor and bonbonnieres that you can’t afford to have it all ruined for lack of good photographs.

There is a lot of work to be done in order to make a wedding the perfect celebration of friends and family. When you are planning the timelines for your wedding you have to ensure that you do not miss out one important event which is the pre-wedding photo shoot. It is absolutely essential that you make the time for this for a variety of reasons, one of them being that it captures the two of you in a very informal light. In addition, this is the perfect opportunity for you to take a well needed break from the stress of making arrangements for wedding invites, catering and the like.

A pre-wedding shoot is an opportunity to tell your love story in photographs in a very artistic manner. You undoubtedly have a lot of photographs of the two of you together but they don’t always show you both in a flattering light because they are usually taken without predetermination or a good camera. You need to have a set of photos that are casual yet beautiful and which give some kind of information about how your love blossomed to the point of marriage.

How to Choose a Wedding Photographer

A wedding photographer has a very important role to play on your big day because this is the person who will create a piece of art that immortalizes your ceremony. It might be very tempting to hand a friend or relative a camera and request them to take pictures of the wedding but the results you get will tell you that you have made a mistake. If you are taking the trouble to choreograph your wedding with care, starting from well designed wedding invites to exquisite party favours, you should budget in the cost of an excellent photographer as well. A talented photographer will be able to create a photographic record of your wonderful ceremony that will enable you to revisit it whenever you require.

There is more to wedding photography than just pointing a camera at something and taking random photographs. A talented photographer should be able to take extremely beautiful pictures that show you and the others in the wedding in the best light possible. Everybody attending the wedding has taken great pains to dress in a particular manner and the camera needs to record this for posterity. In addition, there are many nuances and emotional moments of the wedding that have to be captured as photographic images for you to enjoy later. This is something that an ordinary photographer will not be able to do.
