Photographs are the perfect way to memorialize your wedding day, and if you’re looking forward to cherishing those memories for many years, the last thing you want is for something to go wrong with your wedding photographs. In part one of this multi-part series, we will take a look at some of the most common mistakes people make with their wedding photos so that you can avoid making these mistakes on your big day.
Finalize the Wedding Day Schedule
There are a lot of things that you need to do during the days leading up to your wedding, and one important task that you can’t leave until the last minute is finalizing the wedding day schedule with your photographer. There are a lot of things that you will need to keep in mind when working with your photographer, including natural light. Certain times of the day are better for natural light than others, so you will need to work with your photographer to determine what time you will be taking your photos. Additionally, you need to be sure that you stick to that schedule on the day of your wedding. Adjusting the schedule without talking to your photographer could result in photographs that are less than what you were hoping for.
Don’t Let Relatives Get In the Way
We all have those relatives that come to the wedding with cameras in hand. While the sentiment of trying to provide you with additional photos is appreciated, what’s not appreciated is when your relatives get in the way of the professional photographer. More often than not, your shutterbug relative will decide to step in the way of the photographer that you hired for your wedding, causing them to miss a great shot.
Provide a List of “Don’t Takes”
Every couple should have an idea of what kind of photos they want for their wedding and what photos they really don’t like. Prior to your wedding day, take the time to look online, do some research, and look through your photographer’s portfolio to give you an idea of the type of photos you want to take on your big day. Additionally, you should come up with a list of shots that you don’t want the photographer to take. Provide your photographer with this list a few days before your wedding so as not to surprise them on the big day when they are in the zone.
Book Your Photographer ASAP
There’s no such thing as planning for your wedding too far in advance, especially if you have a specific venue, vendor, or photographer in mind. One common mistake that couples make is waiting too long to book their photographer, so if you find one that you like, book them for your wedding right away to ensure that they are available for your wedding.
