Photography is one of the most important aspects of your special day. The pictures that capture the exact moment you say "I do", exchange your first kiss, and begin your first dance are going to be displayed all over the walls of your home, shared via social media and will be the most visible memories you'll have of the most important day of your life.
It is therefore very important that you choose a professional photographer who is able to make you feel at ease and wo makes you feel confident that you are getting the most out of your wedding photography. However, just because you have chosen an amazing photographer doesn’t mean they can read your mindso it's important to communicate with them your expectations of the services they're going to provide.
Here's what you should tell them:
1. Communicate your anticipated and chosen timeline. Timings will probably change on the day but it’s useful to know what the plan is.
2. Do you not want pictures of some specific things? Would you prefer not to have a camera in the room when you're dressing? You have to make it clear from the beginning what don't want in your photo album too.
3. If you would prefer that drunken friends and family members not be photographed making fools of themselves, let your photographer know. Some couples think these are "priceless" silly moments, but others rather not see parents, for example, in that condition.
4. Give your photographer a "shot list" of important pictures that wouldn't be the usual for every bride and groom. If you want, for example, a picture of all of your work colleagues or your friends from your 5-a-side team, you should give the photographer a list so they aren't forgotten once the party gets started.
