The most important thing for your wedding planning can be that vendors are well organised and planned. Similarly, it goes to your wedding photographer. He should be planned ahead of his time. Discuss the important factors with them. Coordinate with them about the location, your arrangements, any special performances or anything you want to be captured. This will help them to be prepared before, leading to very less mistakes.
2. Be clear with them
Want your wedding video in less than two months. But what if your wedding photographer and videographer says no to that? Do your homework before selecting one. You don’t want to wait for 6 months for a four- hour video. So, discuss with the one you finalised about at what time you should expect your video and photographs.
3. Feed your photographer
With your wedding customs, your guests are not only starving but the photographers too. Having been on foot all day long shooting customs can be hectic and tiring. They also need a moment to rest and recharge themselves before the party gets started. Include them in the budget of meal when counting heads. Don’t just include them in lunch boxes “vendor meal”. Feed them as they require energy too.
4. Decide what pose you want
Don’t expect from your photographer to tell you every way to pose for your bridal photos and pose for photos you want with your groom. Your photographer will suggest you but you eventually know what is your best side and how you feel most pleased. They love when you work for the camera. The more into your photos you are, the better it looks. This is most probably the best time of your life where you will have professional photos done, so enjoy and live it up.
5. Try different postures
Wedding is a big occasion in a girls’ life. She practically dreamed about it from childhood. You also may want to have a fairytale photoshoot with beautiful pictures of your wedding then why to compromise? Bring out the inner supermodel and pretend that the photographer is your mirror. Pose like you secretly strut in front of when no one is looking. Watch shows or videos of brides. Study fashion magazines to outline the different poses that suits you. Practice them in front of the mirror before you are in front of the camera. Don’t be shy while clicking pictures with the groom, show passion with your love! Stop getting embarrassed by others and click whatever photos you want with your fiance. Your photographer wants to see the laugh you share, the sweetness in your eyes when you look at each other, the way you snuggle up together, the sassiness of knowing you look hot on your wedding day, the way your groom knows he’s with the hottest girl in the world, etc.
6. Treat them with respect
Sometimes, people tend to forget that photographers and videographers are human only. They tend to get irritated with them about how they follow, ask them to pose. People treat them like a servant but let’s not forget they are the one who will capture your wedding in such a beautiful way that you will cherish it forever. So, treat them like people and don’t be arrogant to them.
