Styles of Photography
Wedding photography has emerged over the last few decades and with the advent of digital technology there are several styles that have emerged. As someone who is tying the knot you have lots of choices as far as your wedding album is concerned. You can go for those traditional styles which you have seen on wedding albums over the years. Boudoir photography which captures emotions and moments in close details is also gaining immense popularity in the recent years. Location shoots have become common among couples. There are several other styles that you can choose for your wedding album such as Black & White, Faded etc. Depending on your choice you need to choose a Calgary wedding photographer specializing in these styles who can capture images that you would love sharing on your social media handles and have on your album.
The Devil is in Detail
We hate mentioning the word ‘devil’ when we are talking about the union of two souls and the most special day in their lives. But the more time you spend planning the event with the photographer better would be the quality of the images. Start by discussing the kind of images you want to be shot on that day and before your wedding. Inform the photographer about the special people at your wedding and those who need to be in the frame. Familiarize them with the venue as this would make it easy for them to carry the right kind of equipment. If there is anything else that you feel is important you need to make your photographer aware of it. Don’t leave anything to chance or you risk losing out on those beautiful shots.
Don’t Be A Bargain Hunter
The cost of hiring a wedding photographer is definitely one of your major expanses but you should avoid being a bargain hunter. If a friend’s friend volunteers to do it for free you should merely say Thank You and kill that idea right there. It isn’t your birthday which will come every year for you to experiment with. It’s your wedding and minimum you should be doing is hiring a professional. Now the charges of hiring wedding photographers can put you into a fix considering there are no benchmarks in this trade. Hence your choice should never be based on price but the skills and experience the photographer and the team bring to the table. If you like their work you need to go for it without any doubt. But if you don’t like the most expensive photographer’s past work you need to look for other options.
Keep these things in mind while choosing photographers for your wedding and planning it out with them. You would cherish looking at those images for years to come.
