It’s the big day. You have found your soulmate and you want to capture every important moment of this joyful occasion to cherish it for the rest of your life. One should be cautious enough to find the competent professional bridal photography service in your town. Your aspiring nephew could show all his confidence and insist that he could take care of all the photography during the celebration with his tatty SLR. You could let the lad take all the photos he wants, but you need some professionals to get the job done as you desire.
The following are the things you need to bear in mind while choosing your bridal photographer and services you should expect from one.
- Backup Equipment
They should have backup equipment with them all the time. A professional wedding photographer will have at least two of all the most important equipment like, flashes and accessories, battery packs, memory cards and body. These are electronic items and could cease to work at any time. A wise photographer will carry backup equipment just in case something goes wrong. It is also better to have at least two photographers to capture the moments instead of one, even if there is only going to be a small gathering.
- Post Production
There are some lousy bridal photography services that will not do any post production of the photos and videos captured during the occasion and give you all the raw pictures and videos as junks. Make sure that they do all the full post production work and when you receive the images they should be ready to be printed.
- Conscience required
The photographers should be aware all the most important moments that needs to be captured. An experienced photographer will be capable of capturing all the invaluable moments in the celebration. All the aspects of wedding like, ceremony, pictures of guests,boquet toss, the wedding rings, dance, pictures of the venue and decorations, the big wedding cake and more importantly the kiss. Have a discussion with your photographer if you are planning to have any unique event that needs to be captured.
- DVD and digital negatives
They should be able to give you somewhere around 400 to 500 pictures in a DVD. That is the average amount of photos any professional bridal photography service will take. If you wanted more pictures, don’t hesitate to let them know.
The photographer should hang around for at least five hours at the venue. If you have an extended celebration with special events, inform the photographers about it so that they stay for your desired period of time. Talking about time, they should be able to give you the pictures after post production with three weeks. Professional photographers are quite busy; there are some instances where, wedding photos take even over six monthsto be delivered. Ask for a delivery date to be mentioned in the contract, so that you will have a clout if they take a lot of time to deliver the albums.
These are the most vital factors you need to consider before choosing a bridal photography service. This is your wedding to be remembered forever and the pictures need to remind you how wonderful it was.
