How to Capture those Perfect Wedding Moments
A wedding is undoubtedly one of the most precious moments in a person’s life. Capturing it on film to be stored forever is even more important. Today, brides and grooms have so any options to choose from when it comes to choosing the kind of photography that they want for the most important day of their lives.
Here is a guide in achieving the wedding photography of a couple’s dreams:
1. Choosing the right photographer
In order to select a wedding photographer, a couple must first decide on the picture style that they want.
Portrait photographers are perfectly capable to take both formal and casual pictures, but he will most likely concentrate on the formal ones.
Photojournalists take shots that are candid and not planned. This kind of photographer usually has experience in journalism photography.
Hobbyist photographers are those who are often a friend or a relative of the couple, and would likely offer his services for free or a very low price. It is hard to tell the kind of pictures that they will produce, and there is a risk that the pictures may not be as good as a professional’s.
2. Getting the perfect camera
Wedding photographers usually use two basic camera types: the 35mm and the medium format. The 35mm has the tendency to produce pictures that are a little grainy, but the only person who may notice the difference are the photographers themselves.
3. Color or black and white?
Color is usually used in wedding photos, but those who want a more artistic feel may go for the black and white film. Black and white photos lasts longer than color ones, though color films capture the details of the event more appropriately. One option would be to take the pictures in color first, then have copies made in black and white.
4, Personality of the photographer
Most couples want a photographer who can take great pictures but who is also friendly and sociable. Set an interview with the prospective photographer, and make sure to ask effective questions. Also, make sure to ask for references, and take a look at his previous work.
All these tips can help couples in getting those perfect pictures on their special day. Make sure that these pictures can be shown proudly to families and friends, and can be passed down to future generations.
