For most brides, wedding photography is an important part of the big day, while a few brides may undergo a stress of standing before the camera of a professional photographer and looking the best of themselves. If you are camera-shy, things may become even more difficult as you feel awkward and look uncomfortable in the photos. Along with questions like whether the cake will arrive on time, whether the DJ will play just the right songs and whether the reception will take place perfectly, you should not have an additional stress of whether you would look good in your wedding photos. A leading Cincinnati wedding photographer shares here tips on what to expect from your wedding photographer.
If you have selected your photographer from a long list of potential ones, you should expect professionalism from her/him, in terms of punctuality, politeness, friendliness and proper dress.
Some photographers arrive early at the venue for location scouting. They may even look odd while they lie on the grass or stretch a palm and walk in a circle, and you may think that they are on drugs. However, they are just checking angles and how light falls on their palm. You may even notice your photographer cleaning up your room before the “getting ready” shots; but that shows only her/his professionalism, and not weirdness, as s/he is trying to make everything look perfect in the photos.
Most couples are not models and need gentle directions on how to pose with respect to the best lighting. Here you should not be stressed out again with a thought that whether the photos will look good. So, you can expect the photographer to direct you properly and gently while you walk together or hold each other’s hands, to fine tune your posing to make small adjustments.
All in all, you can expect your photographer to make you comfortable while posing, take out your stress about whether the photos will be good and ultimately catch awesome photos. As you have hired a truly talented and professional photographer, leave everything to her/him and enjoy your big day!
