Making wedding pictures is one of the biggest challenges one faces on the most beautiful day of life – not least because you have to take enough time to create the recordings: one or two hours you should at least plan for a creative photosession. If you follow the following expert tips, you will get a lot closer to your dream photos.
Keep your eyes open when choosing a wedding photographer
Chossing a photographer who is capable of making professional wedding pictures is far from easy. Each service provider photographed in his own style, so it is extremely difficult to settle on someone. Information about the abilities and the functioning of the prospective wedding photographers give the websites of the different providers. Real professionals show on their website a wide selection of recordings – from group pictures to intimate couple-photos and individual portraits.
Besides the craftmanship of the service provider, the chemistry between the bride and the photographer plays an important role. Really good wedding pictures with a memorable value can only be created if the bride and groom can relax during the recording and the wedding photographer can work in peace and harmony. It is therefore advisable to make a personal interview to determine whether the photographer in question is on the same wavelenght as you did before the booking was concluded.
Wedding pictures live from details
Wedding pictures live from small details: the cuff buttons of the groom, the lovingly designed ring pillow, floral decorations in the church – all these are things that make wedding pictures of works of art. It is a good idea to think about how these details can best be integrated into the photos already in the run-up to the wedding ceremony. For example, if the bride chooses shoes with graceful embellishments, the photographer can pick them up and incorporate them in the wedding pictures.
Among the details that breathe life into the wedding pictures are also emotional moments – for example, a tender touch away from the hustle or bustle of the bride when they give the groom the “yes” word. Keeping these moments in the picture is a matter for the photographer. Experienced lighting designers have a sense for the right moment and instinctively know when to press the trigger.
Choose a favorable date
The time plays a bigger role in making wedding pictures than you would think. The time between 11:00 am and 3:00 pm is rather unfavorable for the creation of wedding photos because the sun is almost perpendicular to the sky at this time of the day – taking pictures of the outside can thus become an almost insoluble problem. Under the eyes and noses deep, dark shadows are created, which can be extinguished by the computer only with great effort away.
Portraits are best done in the morning hours (until about 11:00) or right before sunset. At this time, on the one hand, the light conditions are favorable, on the other hand the bride and groom is still fit and relaxed. In addition, the make-up of the bride is still fresh in the morning – this is a point that should not be overlooked. It is best to select a day for the wedding ceremony, where no other celebration takes place. When two or even three wedding companies meet, this makes the creation of the wedding pictures unnecessarily complicated.
