Top 10 Mistakes No Wedding Photographer Should Make
There’s nothing in the wedding that can give you a sour taste long after the wedding, than a poor wedding photography or cinematography.
Here are few common mistakes that you must not do, if you’re lucky enough to be single and are planning your wedding.
- Not Finalizing the Schedule
Talk to the wedding photographer Toronto before finalizing the schedule for your wedding day. There is a lot to consider in terms of photographing and natural light. Certain times of day are more photogenic than others. You can simply contact Boundless Wedding Videographer and let him handle the matters professionally.
- Not Sticking to Schedule
Pay attention and respect the schedule you and your photographer discuss prior to your wedding. Being an hour late can make or break your images. Don’t just assume it only takes 10 minutes!
- Letting Uncle Bob Spoil the Wedding
Uncle Bob (one who interferes in your work) may think he’s doing you a favor by taking more shots for the couple, but usually he just gets in the way and makes us miss our shots. Tell Bob to leave the camera at home and just enjoy his time at the wedding without working.
- Not Explaining How You Want to Look in the Photos
According to a popular photographer Dorie Hagler, “Beauty is really very subjective. I ask my clients to send a photo of themselves before the wedding that they like and one that they don’t.”
- Focusing Too Much
A good Toronto wedding photographer can capture the story of their day and capture some artistic portraits while keeping the time away from loved ones to a minimum.
- Second Shooter Not Available
Sometimes brides want to save a little money or feel that it is too obtrusive for more than one photographer to be present on the wedding day. But consider this: The second photographer offers another unique point of view throughout the entire day that you would not have had photographed.
- Not Organizing Guests Properly
Designate someone that you trust and who knows your family and friends to be in charge of organizing people for portraits. That person can gather the people needed, direct them on what shots they will be in, and then release them when they are done. It keeps things moving quickly, smoothly, and enjoyably.
- Trying Too Much to Make Things Perfect
Just have fun — whether it’s getting a little cake on your face or some little detail that didn’t turn out 100 percent like you had hoped, go with it, have fun, and keep smiling. The photos will be so different if the bride is scowling at her new hubby, don’t you think?
- Skipping the “First Look”
Taking your couple photos before the ceremony is so much better than trying to rush bride and groom portraits after the ceremony — especially if your ceremony ran a little late. You end up trying to hurry up and get to the party.
- Trying to Pose
A good photographer gives direction for a reason: to get the best moments and shots from the day. The best thing to do is relax and act naturally. Be in the moment. Be hopelessly in love with each other — the pictures will turn out smashingly!
