A wedding album is one of the things that keeps your marriage young and alive. It adds those nostalgic moments in your life that you want to experience again and again. Wedding pictures remind you how you and people around you were feeling when you were uniting with your love forever. Wedding is special and brings out moments of lifetime, thus, if you want your wedding day moments to be captured perfectly the way you want, you need to consider some important points beforehand. Once you have planned everything such as the wedding dress, guest list, venue, it is important that you make perfect arrangements to capture this day so that it becomes unforgettable.
Firstly, before selecting a wedding photographer, have a good look at his portfolio. It would be better if you review his previous work in advance, rather than repenting later. The studio you are hiring for your wedding day should provide albums to review. Discuss everything in detail with your photographer in advance; let him know what you are expecting from him one week prior. If you have some specific ideas, expectations, or request, then convey them to your photographer.
If you have a wish list like sitting on a top of a hill, or a romantic photo by the lake or in the middle of the field, then discuss your desires with your photographer when you meet him. Be ready with the samples like a picture from magazine, old photos, etc to show him. From there, your photographer will come to know what you are expecting from him. Every couple desire to have photographs in romantic poses, but having the whole album filled with these photographs does not make it fun and exciting. Do not stick to the stiff poses; let your photographer catch some natural poses as well, as most of the time moments that are caught with you unaware of being clicked, turns out to be the best pictures. Choose a perfect time for the photography like early morning or after 4 o’clock. Never pose for photos in the noontime when the sun is at its high, it will create dark shadows on your face, wait until the sun starts setting slowly.
Shooting photos in a wedding is a whole day affair. It takes lot of time to click photos of the entire family at different location along with couple’s photos. To keep photography session hassle-free, schedule it keeping the different age group in mind. Start with children and then the elderly people. Next, take pictures with families of both bride and groom. However, keep enough time for you and your partner to get some amazing and romantic poses clicked that you wish to cherish forever. After couple of hours, your guest might just want to relax and enjoy the party. To catch the best shots of the wedding work with your photographer to keep everyone focused and photogenic, along with making them comfortable. However, don’t forget to catch some expressions with people being unaware that they are being clicked, as these often make the most cutest and funniest pictures of your wedding album.
