Brides – tell your Dad to get ready in good time. Dad has worked out that if the service is at 1pm, it takes 10 minutes to get there, it takes him 10 minutes to get dressed and 10 minutes to have a shower, so he can start to get ready at 12.30. In fact the photographer might be getting there at 11.15 and leaving to go to meet the groom at the church at 12.15, so there are now no pictures of bride and dad at the house.
Next to actually hearing Entertainers in person, recommendations from friends and family can be quite helpful. Just be a bit skeptical, if a friend, of a friend, of a friend, has a brother-in-law, that sometimes plays the tuba (or whatever). Ask how long they have been performing, and request names of recent performance venues. Also ask for a video or audio file of their work.
One of things a person should consider is how they want their pictures to be taken. Everyone has a different style that appeals to them. Some photographers are more traditional in their approach while others may take a more journalistic style. There are others that may even do both styles.
What is an adequate photographic equipment for a essex wedding photographer? Simple: the top, the best, the most expensive. No way around it. It is useless for me to list camera models here, because especially with digital photography, cameras evolve very quickly and before long this article would be dated. Instead choose a brand among the world’s five best (Leica, Hasselblad, Mamiya, Canon, Nikon), look at the top 3 most expensive cameras… and pick one. That is the camera you will be expected to use at a wedding. Anything less will not be top notch photo equipment.
Some would advocate that you look to get into the finest artistic photography schools in the country. If you wish to go down that path, then for sure the Brooks Institute of photography or one of the elite east coast schools of artistic photography is a noble ambition. But there are three drawbacks to trying to attend such schools. First is, of course, the potential cost. Any elite school is going to charge elite prices. And if you are like most of us, you want to get the most education for your money. So doing some caparison shopping for a school is in order.
Try not to lose any friends in the run-up. Organising a big event can be quite stressful, so try and be aware of your new stress levels when you are dealing with people. And enjoy it and if possible share the organising with others who would also enjoy playing a part.
A very important thing when doing wedding photography is to make sure that you blend in the background. To do this, turn off your camera sound. The beeps and shutter sounds will completely ruin the moment. Make sure that the sound is completely off at all times.
Consider chocolate mud or an alternative to the traditional wedding cake. If you can’t go without the traditional wedding cake consider buying the cake undecorated and having a flower arrangement made for the top of the cake. This looks fantastic and the price difference is huge.
