Your head will be filled with ineffaceable memories of this important day, but you will surely want to be able to look again and again the photos that will have immortalized the different moments of your marriage. It is therefore essential to put all things on your side for these shots to be successful. Here are five tips for this.
Choosing the right photographer
Of course, the success of your wedding photos depends on the skill of the photographer or photographers you choose. From one photographer to another, the result can be very different. Everyone has their own style, I advise you to choose the one that suits you best, relying on examples of their work.
I work very regularly with the same agency, Free as Art. Their photographers have a lot of talent, and are a real reference for weddings. My clients are all delighted!
Have a good discussion beforehand with the photographer (s)
If you have particular desires, it is essential to approach them during your meeting with the photographers to leave nothing to chance on the day, and realize a few weeks later by receiving the photos that you forgot to let him know how important it was for you to do this or that photo. In the other direction, the photographers will be able to give you their point of view, their ideas, or point out details you have not thought of.
Pay attention to your makeup
Exactly, among the details we do not necessarily think about: the rendering of your makeup (especially the complexion) in front of the flashes of the cameras.
The very fine free powders and other clear corrective brushes are certainly invisible and colorless to the eye but on a photo taken with a flash, they have a mirror effect. Each of the fine makeup particles returns the light. So, in the pictures, big white spots appear on your pretty face. To avoid this tragedy, think of approaching this point with your make-up artist, or have a light hand if you wear makeup alone.
Reserve a sufficient time slot in the schedule of the day
Carefully think about the time of day when the photo shoot will take place. If you want this to happen with a sunset in the background, be careful because nature is not long in coming, and the sun goes down very quickly. Also let the people you want to see appear on the pictures. Your bridesmaids, your witnesses … You do not want to run everywhere looking for them while the photographer is waiting for you for this session in small committee.
Variant: new photo animations, original and offbeat.
More and more often, the bride and groom are planning a photo corner, where the guests take pictures of themselves in a furnished corner. A wide choice of atmosphere is offered to you (bohemian, retro, country …) that you can decorate various accessories (boas feathers, XXL glasses, wreaths of flowers …). The photos come out instantly and the guests leave with their little memory.
Another alternative for instant photos: the classic Polaroid. Guaranteed vintage effect, there is even a white band underneath to write a legend in indelible ink. The Instax model from Fujifilm is perfect.
