Great photos...

Great wedding photos

Here are some tips for great wedding photography & video...

Many years from now, nothing better than looking back on all the beautiful photos & video from your wedding day. Here are four tips that will make them all just right...

  1. Make your comfort priority one.... Your photographer will be with you for largest part of your wedding day, so it’s important that you feel comfortable around him or her. Weeks before your wedding, get together with your photographer and explain what type of shots you want and how creative you’d like the day to be. This will make that you’re both on the same page on the day, and that you won’t feel so shy or awkward when being posed for photos . The picture taking process should goes easy and be fun. After all, your hair and makeup will be done just right your dress will be beautiful and you will look your best ! Enjoy and take in every minute of this,that is why we say do video as well,if it is in the budget.
  2. Leave lots of time for photos... You may be the most organized, bride around but schedules don’t always run as planned. On your wedding day, don’t be surprised if things take more time than you thought they would, the photography being one of them. That’s why it’s so important to leave an adequate time between your ceremony & reception.Think about the size of your wedding party as well, the more bridesmaids and groomsmen you have, the longer it will take to get all the photos done. And is your reception along way from the ceremony? Make sure you take this into account. Bottom line girls.Please don’t expect to get all your pictures done in a half an hour, this is what you have to look at forever.
  3. Be ready on time... If you want your photographer to shoot pre ceremony stuff, like the salon, getting dressed, getting into the limo and on your way to the church, make sure you and your bridal party are ready when they show up. If you’d like to feature your bridal bouquet in these photos make sure that your flowers will arrive on time,before you leave. PS tell the florist you need them 30 minutes before you really do, do this with the hair and make up too. You’ll also want to make sure your limousine is booked for enough time to allow for things to run a little late they often are.
  4. Know your back up plan to a tee.... Of course rain is the last thing you want on your wedding day, but don’t assume it won’t rain. Have a back-up plan for your wedding photos just in case, and make sure your alternate location is available.If your photographer and video are worth anything, they will know where to go to take photos if it rains...I DO !!!59750013

The Wedding Album...

After the ceremony, you’re still going to be faced with a few major wedding chores. One, writing thank you letters, and another is selecting wedding photos from the proofs. Some of these will be blown up and framed for your wall or as gifts. But the biggest job will be selecting and organizing photos for your wedding album.

It’s up to you to choose your favorite shots, but many photographers will include a photo album service, for a fee. You’ll get professionally mounted photos, artistically presented in a keepsake album you’ll treasure forever. And take your time on this, do not RUSH it and try not to buy the album from the photographer,call or e mail and i'll tell you why...
