It's that time again where I have to spill some beans. This topic has been brewing in my subconscious for quite some time, a brief insight from a photographer's perspective that could improve your wedding day and album.
Often, when the end product arrives, and in this case the wedding album, negative comments and finger pointing is directed at the photographer. But did you know that there are many ways that a bride or groom can sabotage their wedding shoot, and at the end ruin their chances of having a beautiful wedding album? Here are my top fives ways a brides and grooms could devalue the quality of their own wedding album.
1. Be a bridezilla
Believe it or not, Bridezilla disease shows up in the photos, it has an unappealing look and stunts the creativity of your photographer.
2. Poorly plan your wedding day
Quick tip: Give your photographer a list of important shots that you want taken on your special day.
3. Allow guest photography
Guest photographers's flashes interfere with the lighting that of the professional photographer. The worst of it all, guest photographers are most likely to stand in the way of the professional photographer, which could spoil their shot or worse, have you miss an important moment.
4. Shoot in harsh light
It should be a law. Shooting under harsh light is unfavorable for many reasons. While many people are aware of this photography rule, it seems to slip out the back door of their minds when it comes to planning their wedding day. Further, photography will play a big role at your wedding, as the moments captured will last forever. By going against the rule on harsh light, you'll be setting up for a horrible spread of photos. Here's why we recommend you NOT to shoot in harsh light:
5. Surprise your photographer
Some of you may find the above-listed totally crazy, but believe me these situations do happen, even to the best people. Avoid these situations, and you'll be one step closer to the perfect wedding album.
You're Welcome :)
