Nowadays many people have photography skills. With the use of mobile devices, almost everyone has access to some sort of camera and takes photos on a regular basis.
The most common complaint you will hear when people talk about wedding photographers is that they take the couple away for too long to do the couple photoshoot. Right? Everyone says that. But do you know it doesn't have to be that way? When that happens it just shows that they have not planned out their day well and managed their time efficiently. It is possible for you to have all the photos you want and for you to be present at each fun part of your wedding. But it can only happen if the photographer has the experience to advise you properly.
The true secret to being a wedding photographer is not just about being able to take great photos, it is about communicating well with people. That means being able to help clients plan out their wedding so that nothing feels rushed and so they have the maximum amount of time with their guests. It also means working well with large groups of people on the day so that everything ticks along smoothly.
As a wedding photographer, all I want is for the couple to have the best time ever at their wedding. When that happens the photos take care of themselves. And that is why when a couple books us we get together with them before the wedding and go over their specific timeline to make sure they leave enough time for each part of the day.
So, before you go ahead and get your friend or your uncle to take your wedding photos, ask yourself if they have what it takes to pull it off. You only get one chance to do it right!
