postheadericon How to Get the Most from Your Wedding Photographer

More of us than ever before are taking photos every day. The rising popularity of platforms like Instagram means we have opportunity to share and experience beautiful imagery like never before. Sadly, that does not make us all photographers, and we should not underestimate the skill involved in taking stunning wedding photographs.

Choosing a photographer is a key part of the success of the day: after all, the photographs are the memory you will see again and again. They need to capture the essence of you and your partner to give your images authenticity. Follow some simple tips and you’ll be well on your way to finding the right match.

Do Your Research

Take time looking at images and you’ll soon see the styles you like and then get in touch. In person is best, but Skype or even on the phone is important. If you don’t feel comfortable around the photographer, the photos won’t look natural. Work together to create a shot list – your photographer will be able to advise on the time for each shot – and from there a timeline of the day. Planning these details will help minimise stress on the day, and you will be able to relax knowing that everything is under control.

Go Local

Getting beautiful images relies a lot on the location. Don’t underestimate the value of a photographer who knows the local venues and the locations in each. A Bournemouth Wedding Photographer like http://www.nickrutterphotography.co.uk/ will know how the light falls in different places, where to pose groups and how to capture the essence of the venue all over the Bournemouth and south Dorset areas.

Consider Your Surroundings

Your photographer will consider the external surroundings and how best to position you to best effect, but it will be down to you to keep things tidy, especially if you have ‘getting ready’ shots; lots of mess and clutter will quickly distract from the main focus of the day, which is you, your partner and your big day.

To get an understanding of how photographers themselves see the relationship with their clients, read some testimonials on the Love NE site.

Your photographs are one of the biggest investments of the whole wedding, so it is worth taking the time to get them right.
