The Right Photographer

To get the best photos, you need the right photographer for you. That means you need to do a lot of investigation into photographers in order to find someone who captures the sort of images you want. The best photographers have experience as well as creative flair, and a bit of artistry. Look through as many portfolios as you see fit until you find the perfect one. Because of the importance of the photo in terms of longevity, it may be best to go with someone even if they are one of the most expensive. Not being happy with the photos afterward can be hugely disappointing, so don’t let this happen to you.  


Once you have the photographer, you need to build a rapport with them. Having a few meetings with them, perhaps doing a few trial photos, so they can see the difference between a genuine smile and one that is put on. Also, they need to know how you feel you look good, so tell them. If they don’t know what you think looks good, how are they supposed to know the difference? The better the photographer understands you and your fiance, the better the photos will be.

Practice Makes Perfect

If you want the best photos, then start practicing. What angles work best for you, and think about your best side and smiles. Where do you want to be standing in relation to your partner? Perhaps there is some scope for you to go to the venue where you will be taking the photos and have a bit of practice there. You can work out where all the natural light wl be coming from and make the best use of it. Once you get that perfect shot, practice it so that you’ll remember on the big day.

A Bit of Fun

One great addition to a wedding is photo booth rentals. These can add a little bit of extra fun to your wedding album collection. Not only can you get a few fantastic off-the-cuff shots of you and your partner, but your guests, especially children, will love it too. A photo booth is a chance for everyone to act a little silly and get a photo that they are ready for, rather than being captured at their worse while eating dinner.
