Actual day wedding photographers have a much tougher job, because they cannot retake a moment after it’s past. It’s mostly candid shots, while pre wedding photo shoots are about posed shots.
This is also the reason why many couples are worried about their actual day wedding photography, because the chances of having it screw up is much higher. That’s why I always recommend couples to look at the wedding photographer’s or studio’s quality by looking at their portfolio, rather than looking at the price – especially for actual day photography.
Anyway, here are some things you can expect when it comes to your actual day wedding photoshoot.
First and foremost, it is ideal for you to get a friend to help you point out who are the people you want more photographs of. This is because the photographer will be an outsider to your circle of family and friends. They would not know whom you’re closer to and prefer more photographs of. Therefore, before the wedding, pick a best man or bridesmaid to help point out the more important people in your invited guest list to the photographer. The bridal photography shoot will go smoother, and you’ll be more pleased with the end results.
Secondly, remember, the photographer is a human. If you want the photographer to capture a particular scene, make sure to let your guests know who your main photographer is, as there will be several guests with their own phones and cameras taking photos, and not every guest will know who is the official bridal photographer for your wedding ceremony. This way, the guests will not block the way of the official photographer, and he or she will then be able to capture the important moments of your wedding ceremony properly and easily.
Third of all, a really important thing is to pick a photographer in Singapore who is capable and experienced. An experienced photographer does not mean he or she takes great photographs, a capable one does. A capable photographer may have excellent photography skillsets but may not have much experience taking bridal photographs. You want a photographer in Singapore who has both capability as well as experience – you want the best of both worlds. You want the best spouse, the best ceremony, the best location, so why not spend more and pick a better photographer too (i.e. www.grandeurweddingstudio.com)?
