Most people only get married once, and with so much going on is hard to remember all the little parts of the day. So it’s important that you hire a wedding photographer to capture these moments.
Your wedding will most probably be the best day of your life, and you want a keep sake that you can look back on for years to come. So by hiring a wedding photographer you will have something to remember your day by.
There are two main ways that the photographer can choose to document your day for you. These are called Traditional or Photo-journalistic.
Traditional tends to be more posed pictures – normally of the Bride and Groom outside the church, followed by a series of pictures with the rest of the wedding party. These are posed pictures, normally with lots of input from the photographer who will tell you where to stand, and what angle to pose at.
Then there is the photo-journalistic option which is more a series of candid un-posed pictures, with very little interaction from the photographer. These tend to have a more natural feel to the photos.
These are two very different extremes though, and realistically the photographer that you choose, should be able to do a mixture of the two styles if that is what you want.
When it comes to searching for the photographer that is best for you, it’s important to check out a few different styles to makes sure you get the best wedding photographer. Searching online on a site like Google, is the perfect way to start, but just searching wedding photographer will bring up thousands of options, so make sure you add the location you are in. For example you would search “wedding photographer Edinburgh” to find out all the companies that can offer this service in Edinburgh.
Make sure you check out samples from the photographer before you book, and have plenty of discussions with them regarding exactly the style you want on your big day. Then all that’s left is to get married and await for the photo’s to arrive so that you a relive your special day over and over again.
