"Why Photographers Ask No Other Flash Cameras Be Used"
Nothing is more frustrating then going to capture the perfect shot and a guest or family members jumps up or in front of you and sets off their flash and destroys a perfect capture. Lighting is one of the things that can make or break a shot so it is important to be able to control the lighting. Guest with cameras are also noted for calling out the brides name and causing her attention to turn to the guest in the middle of a photograph.
Guest with cameras are okay, but please let the pro do their job first !
"What to look for in a wedding photographer? "
When looking for a wedding photographer you need to first understand exactly what you need. When photographing a wedding many types of photography are used. Photojournalistic photography helps tell the story. Portrait photography captures posed shots of the bride and groom, as well the the bridal party. Event photography captures the groups and emotion at your reception. All these types of photography require different skills. Knowledge of lighting for portrait types, knowledge of lenses and camera speeds for photojournalistic type, and of course being in the right spot at the right time for event type.
Make sure when speaking with a photographer you can see they have a well rounded portfolio to insure they are the right fit for you. A great wedding photographer is not someone who simply has a few incredible portraits in the portfolio, but yet a very diverse portfolio showing knowledge of all types of photography.
"GETTING GREAT IMAGES – TIP for the customers!"
Getting great images, first starts with creating great files to print them from. Some wedding photographers run around with cameras that have a small sensor, rather then the larger full frame sensor that a seasoned pro would be using. Do not be afraid to ask your photographer about his equipment. Trust me we like to brag about our equipment!
Make sure that if you are getting files to print from that they are still sized rather large so you can make wall prints if you like. Some photographers and or chapel will simply give you a 5 x 7 sized image. When you increase the size of this image it will distort at times.
"Getting the shot! -SHOT LIST"
As a seasoned photographer, I know getting the shot is the slam dunk. When I prepare for a wedding or corporate function I create a SHOT LIST, which I then print out and laminate. I place this list in my suit coat pocket to make sure I capture all the important shots, beyond the moments that seem to naturally unfold in front of the camera.
I know that as a photographer it is near impossible to guarantee a shot, but if its on the list I am looking out for the opportunity to capture that image!
