On your wedding day you will know how celebrities feel. You will be photographed from every angle and in many settings. You will be the centerpiece of shots from your photographer as well as every family member who has ever clicked a shutter. To make sure that the pictures are perfect and what you want, take the time to pre plan their role on your day. Consider these questions:
1. How much do you want to spend? Have a figure in mind, as you approach professional photographers. If you want the one with the most impressive portfolio or is considered the best in town, be prepared to pay accordingly. By the same token, don’t settle for minimum shots on a low budget if photos and memories are important to you. From a planner perspective do NOT skimp on your pictures. Consider if you want to split the budget between still shots in an album or video or both.
2. How do you want to remember your wedding? What is your preferred style of photographic memories? Are you fans of formal portraits and posed pictures or are you fans of more casual and candid photo-journalistic shots? Do you want a nice mixture of both?
Be sure you talk over these preferences with your photographer you’ve selected. Most photographers want to know about your shot preferences and will appreciate your opinions. More and more families are choosing to have family portraits taken that day since all are present and looking good.
3. Find out if the photographer you have chosen will have an assistant along that day to help attendants assemble for the group shots. It always helpful to have another eye scanning the reception for those photos that one may miss when attending to the photo they are currently taking.
