3 Things Your Wedding Photographer Should Do for You
Wedding photographers do so much more than just take your wedding photos. They coordinate your photo timeline, consult you on looks for the day, and help you with locations for your portraits. So, it’s extremely important that you find a photographer that you like and get along with. But what about the day of? You will spend more time with your wedding photographer than perhaps any other vendor through the course of the day.
In light of this, here are 3 things your wedding photographer should do for you on your wedding day:
1. Help you feel relaxed.
Let’s face it – a “successful” wedding day is a combination of multiple things working together. From your caterer arriving on time, to reception setup, hair & makeup schedule, out-of-town guests attending, photo timeline – your wedding can buzz by and leave you in a daze.
But, what good is a wedding celebration if you can’t enjoy all its special moments?
Your wedding photographer should help you feel relaxed and confident about your photo timeline – allowing you to enjoy those special moments while they capture them. A good wedding photographer will also keep you focused on the most important aspect of the wedding day – your commitment to your future spouse. Things can (and will) go wrong – and you will need a professional who can help ease your mind.
2. Help you be yourself
You will be followed by a camera for 95% of your wedding day. Getting ready, first look, emotional moments – all of them will be on display and captured for you to remember.
But what am I supposed to do with my hands?
Your wedding photographer should help you feel natural, confident, and beautiful (or handsome) – so your photos capture you at your best. A good wedding photographer will also be directive and clear with you – knowing the angles, setups, and locations that lead to beautiful photos.
3. Capture beautiful, timeless photos
Isn’t this the most important thing?
Truth is, you don’t get #3 if your photographer can’t do #s 1 & 2. A good wedding photographer has the personality, experience, and professionalism to do all three. Beautiful, timeless photos are captured when you feel and look your best.
We say “timeless” photos because these memories will fill albums and mantles for years to come. You want your cherished moments captured in a way that is clean and classic – not according to the latest filtered fad.
