Wedding Photography – A Different Perspective

Wedding photography includes pictures of the couple before the wedding, as well as coverage of the actual wedding ceremony and reception. The two approaches in wedding photography are traditional and photojournalism. Traditional bridal photography consists of classically posed images. In this approach, there is much interaction with the photographer on the day of the wedding. In the photojournalistic approach, the images recorded are much more subtle with less photographer interaction. These two approaches are the two extremes of photographic styles. Most of the modern day photographers’ fall somewhere between these two styles.

There are certain things to keep in mind while hiring a photographer to cover your wedding. Every photographer possesses an individual style. It takes some research from your side to decide who you want to photograph your wedding. To find the perfect photographer you should start looking well ahead of time. Look into your photographers creative side more then the business side when hiring a wedding photographer. One shouldn’t be concerned about comparing various package details or the number of prints he is going to get. Once you have chosen a photographer for the job, take care of all minute details then and there so that the photographer you hired is not preoccupied about with thoughts of collecting his payment, on the wedding day.

Always remember NOT to give constant direction to the professional you have hired. Nobody wants to be pushed around, not even your photographer so ask your guests to be polite as well. No photographer likes to be directed as to what to shoot and how to do it. The more there’s third party interaction, the less creativity in the photography. Sometimes the relatives and friends are so preoccupied in instructing the photographer that they almost miss the entire wedding.

As always, trust is a major factor that affects your relationship with the photographer. Not everything can be controlled on your wedding day, so you will need to come to terms with that. That’s another reason why you hired a professional to capture all the beautiful moments of the wedding day.

Most importantly, do not starve your photographer. Your photographer will need to eat, no matter how professional and hardworking they are. This should be the last person you want to starve at your wedding. Do not give your photographer long lists of things to do. This would distract him from what you actually hired him to do.
