Here we showing you the experience of a wedding photographer. “Some couples can’t see initially that there is so much value there” (in the photographer’s service).” The artistic ability to capture, to see and feel things before they happen and to know exactly what to capture comes with experience and passion. But once you see that magic and the quality, it’s well worth it.
“Great wedding photographs don’t just miraculously occur. The photographs you see in portfolios take skill, preparation, artistic flair and meticulous attention to detail.”
There’s a couple. They’re in love and they’re getting married. The most important part is the ceremony, and then the party afterwards. I always say to my couples as as a wedding photographer, what I do on the day is so insignificant. But the day after, what I have done is super critical. I’m invisible on your wedding day unless necessary. I dress as a guest. I blend in, I don’t impact the couples wedding day unless I need to. But I capture those critical moments, and it’s beautiful.
“The amount of work that goes into a wedding begins from the enquiry. Whether it’s from a referral or from the calypso wedding photography site, or from a wedding photographer they have invested some time, so then you’re probably spending half an hour in that communication before you are booking time in my diary. Then you’re spending another hour or so with the couple (before they have booked your service)”
Guides to the Wedding Photographer
“The question we always ask our couples is to describe their perfect wedding day in three words. An ‘elegant, graceful and beautiful’ wedding is very different from a ‘minimalistic, edgy, crazy’ wedding. So that give us some hints about the dress, the car and the day.
Then we follow up with a thank you and provide the couple with a written quote. we follow up again a week later and either they book us or not. If they do, we fill out a contract and catch up with them again, learn even more about their day, take notes and then we touch base with them periodically leading up to the wedding.
Things are changing. A wedding used to be the start of a relationship. Now the wedding is: ‘we already live together, we’ve got a fur baby and we’re renovating a house’ so it’s all together. (A wedding is) less for everyone else and more for the couple now. “
