So you have decided to become a Wedding Photographer and are now wondering what you need to get started. Here is my Top 10 Guide to Essential Wedding Photography Equipment.
After acquiring quotes, do not straight away make a decision. Instead, go to the next interview and do the same thing. Remember to also look at the attitude aspect of the photographer. There are some who can come across as charming but play down your style and embellish their own. There are those who are quiet but listen to your ideas and discuss what can be best for the project.
With the different styles of wedding photography currently prevalent, it is important that the couple decide before hand which style they want. They can choose a professional photographer who is an expert in that style, whether it is traditional style that involves a lot of ‘sit-still poses’ with the couple as well as their families and friends, photojournalistic style that comprises the ‘narration’ of the whole events where the photos are taken without making others conscious about it or contemporary style that involved curious angles and interesting backgrounds and poses.
How can you know if the photographer who’s work you love, is the right photographer for you? Check into engagement sessions. The majority of photographers have included engagement sessions as part of their wedding packages. Those are generally people who know they need to connect with their client. We, as photographers want to get to know you, and feel comfortable with you prior to your wedding day, just as you should hope to feel with us. Find out of you can purchase the engagement session on its own, without committing to the wedding photography, but do ask if you can enroll the price at a later date if you do decide to go forward with said tuscany wedding photographer.
It never fails to amaze me that photographers still attend a wedding with only ONE camera! If that camera breaks down what are they going to do? Pop out their mobile phone and carry on shooting? We always bring a full range of backup equipment to every wedding. For example, we bring backup digital cameras, extra storage cards, a laptop, blank discs, spare batteries and a portable studio if the weather is wet and we have to shoot indoors.
For kids of the bride, it is likely to be the most active day of your life so far (if not the bore, that is). Your goal is sure to be the perfect day, but sometimes it does not take a lot of heart rate go through the roof. While these suggestions and ideas apply to all brides and grooms, they can be very important for the bride to overreact.
If you choose one of these photographers, I can tell you that you will not leave disappointed, as you have found an absolute winner when it comes to pictures.
