Avoid Common Wedding Photography Mistakes By Following These 6 Tips For A Stress-Free Day And Stunning Images

Don’t Forget To Voice Your Vision

Yes, photographers are the experts. But after planning and personalizing your dream wedding, you should also have some say in the end result.

That’s why it is critical that you figure out what you want and voice your end goal to your photographer. And one of the easiest ways to get your point across is by providing visual examples.

You can scour Pinterest or visit bridal websites; likewise, you can use family members’ or friends’ weddings as inspiration. Gather a few photographs that really represent your intended aesthetic, composition, and style. Then, show your photographer to give them a “feel” for how they should shoot.

Also, if your photographer has never shot at your chosen wedding venue, it can be helpful to provide them with photos of the space while pointing out what specific areas you would like shots in. This can help them narrow down your vision and plan some images pre-wedding day.

Never Skip The Pre-Wedding Photo Session

Much like a wedding day makeup trial, pre-wedding photo sessions are key for determining if you want to move forward with a photographer.

First of all, this trial run is a great way to get to know your photographer and figure out if you vibe with their workflow.

Plus, you and your photographer will get to determine what works and what doesn’t– such as poses, lighting, and different compositions– before the real thing.

Most of the time, these sessions also go great– giving you and your fiancé even more engagement photos that you can cherish as memories while gaining confidence in your wedding photographer.

But, on the off chance the session goes badly, you will be able to save yourself time, money, and upset by finding out upfront and changing courses.
