I’m looking for the best of what to share with you 24/7. Seriously. Whether it’s an Instagram shot or a Facebook post, I’m perpetually on the look out for things brides will love, or should know about. Interesting, lust-worthy, practical – I want to share it all.
So I’m putting together all my notes from this week and bringing to you a new feature on the blog. This may or may not be a weekly thing but I promise that once I have enough to share, I’ll wrap it up in a post and hit publish! Here’s the very first – Best of Weddings This Week.
“Talk to your photographer before finalizing the schedule for your wedding day. There is a lot to consider in terms of photographing and natural light. Certain times of day are more photogenic than others (midday sun casts harsh, unflattering shadows on the face while late day sun casts a beautifying warm glow on everyone).”
The wedding photographers I surveyed typically deliver 30-100 photos for every hour, of coverage they provide. Four hundred photos may seem like a lot, but your wedding photographer is preserving all those little details and the moments you missed while you were mingling.
How can I make sure I look good in my photos?
Trust your wedding photographer.If you’re relaxed, it’ll come through in your photos.Leave some breathing room in your schedule so you don’t feel rushed — I recommend a minimum 30 minutes for family and wedding party photos, and an hour for the couple portraits.
Do I really need a second photographer?
No one needs a second photographer, but they can provide you with more images and a different perspective. Many of the top photographers only work with assistants who carry gear and help with professional lighting. The best thing is to ask your wedding photographer to see how they prefer to work. You can get good results either way.
