Wedding photography

What to consider before hiring a wedding photographer. Wedding is a special event, so better start thinking of finding a photographer quite soon after the engagement. There are many technical aspects to keep in mind, as well as creative aspects. We asked of wedding photographers, to answer some questions about wedding photography. Renate  Den Haag thinks a great wedding photos either shows emotion or tells a story, even better if it does both. Technical aspects like great light and framing are nice and they help in creating photos. But a love story of a wedding couple and emotions are the key when telling that. Always good to ask photographer some questions before making the final choice: what kind of lighting and equipment do you use and why? Can I see the full wedding set? Have you shot at my venue before? What editing do you do on the pictures? How soon will I see the photos? etc. has a list of wedding photographers in Amsterdam, Den Hague, Rotterdam, Utrecht etc.. Renate sais `Yes, always talk to your photographer before you book them! You should be aware of the way they work, that way you know if you need to prepare anything and you'll know if they work in the way you prefer your wedding photographer to work. If you're counting on being directed, you definitely don't want a wedding photographer with a journalistic approach. Whereas if you prefer to notice your photographer as less as possible and most of all want to enjoy your wedding day then you shouldn't go with a photographer that wants to intervene and direct you the entire day. Talking to your photographer is the best prep you can do, as it will put you at ease beforehand and you won't get unpleasantly surprised on your wedding day.``

About pre wedding shoot A pre wedding photography is a chance for the couple to get together with their wedding photographer before the big day and to have some portrait photos taken. Many photographers include a pre wedding photo shoot in their package, but it usually costs extra. The reason to do such pre wedding shoots is the following: You have the chance to get to know your photographer so you are more comfortable spending your wedding day with them. You can talk to your photographer about your ideas and they can get an idea of how you work with the camera. You can experience your photographer in action and make sure you have made the right choice. They should be doing their best to impress you during and after the pre wedding photos. When it comes to creative side in photography, then always ask for a portfolio with previous work. This is a good link to simplify communication between photographer and client. Do you want the style of the photos to be classical, artistic, lifestyle, dramatic, documentary or something else? Always meet your photographer before the event and discuss the details and expectations in real life, not online. Make sure you ask for some atmospheric photos, detail shots, beauty shots, documentary shots, and some pictures of the venue. Some couples want to use film photography, some digital photography and some go for both. It is popular to do after shoots as well as engagement shoots. Also casual family photos during weddings, overhead shots and selfies have become popular.

Truefie wedding photography interview Rebecca from Southampton, UK has some tips on how to prepare for a wedding photography shoot: “Get to know your photographer really well and make sure you pick a photographer who you get along with. We are a really big part of your day so you want to make sure you feel comfortable around them. I offer all my engagement shoots, this is a great opportunity to get to know one another, and also get you used to being in front of the camera. That way on the day you won't feel quite so nervous about it because you have done it before and know your photographer is going to do an amazing job. My preparation starts at least a week before the big day. It is so so important that your wedding photographer is professional enough to be prepared for every eventuality. My car is full to the brim on a wedding day! I always contact the wedding couple a week or so before, because we may not have spoken for a while, just to check that everything is still as it was when they booked, no timings have changed etc. I have endless amounts of lists, I go through the client file to check names of family members, checking all my equipment and keeping an eye on the weather of course! I also liaise with the venue and or church to make sure they are aware of what I will be doing on the day. ” Budget for photos A thing that also comes to people's mind is the budget. Wedding photographer costs usually around 10% to 15% percent of the whole amount spent on the event. That usually includes 8 hours of shooting. Depending on the photographer it could include a second shooter/assistant or printed wedding album. One should note that it is not a one-day event for wedding photographers but it takes days to plan to shoot the wedding, and spend time on post processing the photos and designing the wedding album.
