Favorite tip: Pinterest is great for inspiration and ideas, but remember that your wedding is unique to you and your partner so while it’s great for inspiration, turn it into something that’s personal to you.

Favorite tip: You generally get what you pay for.

You’ve been dreaming of your wedding day all your life. Now the big day is approaching and you want to capture every special moment with top notch photography. Photography technology is getting better and better all the time which means you and your groom will benefit big time with amazing images and an album that showcases your wedding in style.
432_250_Art_Bridal Party-0012
Digital Days
Just five years ago, photographers were divided about digital. Some relied strictly on film; some shot exclusively in the digital format; others shot a little bit of both formats. Nowadays, digital dominates the field of photography, especially when it comes to covering weddings. “Digital is far superior in workability,” says Paul Douda of AP Studios. “You’re able to take thousands of pictures.” With digital, photographers can shoot lots of images quickly and they’ll get results on the spot. Digital allows a photographer to shoot as many images as he wants and to see the results right away, which is a great way to make sure he gets the shot he needs. Shooting on film isn’t so easy or so rewarding in the moment. After all, film is expensive, must be kept in a controlled climate and needs to be developed after the wedding. Film is more time consuming and not as user-friendly as digital. “Digital has given us a lot better quality and flexibility with what you can do with the end product,” says Betsy McCue of La Vida Creations Photography. Digital technology means photographers can review photos during the event and change direction if needed. More light? Less light? Different composition? With digital, photographers can download images to their computer and start tweaking images, such as cropping and color correcting, right away. With film, images need to be developed and then scanned for editing.
432_251_Art_Bridal Party-0020
Photo Style
“When it comes to shooting, it’s become a mixture of photojournalism with fashion,” says Lynnette Coalson of Abiding Image: Photography by Lynnette Coalson. “You see a lot of brides and grooms turning into models the day of their wedding for their portrait sessions.”

Modern photography styles are more varied than ever. Photographers used to shoot portraits and posed shots as their primary focus. But that’s changed with the times. Now photographers are creative and less structured about their craft and they work with brides and grooms to shoot the ceremony and reception in a style that’s suitable to the happy couple.

“Most people know what they want,” says Yasmine Wooten of Photography by DeShun who says un-staged, un-posed photos are the most popular wedding style. Many couples crave candid photos. The style is all about capturing people and events in an un-posed manner such as guests laughing while dancing or kids having fun eating wedding cake. “Different times call for different styles,” says Douda who tailors his shooting to the mood of the moment.

After all, the ceremony is more serious than the cake cutting and a photographer knows how to approach each moment with the right emotion and style of shooting. Photojournalism is a popular style of photography where images are captured as they happen in an unplanned fashion. There are no do-overs or posed shots with photojournalism. Think of a photojournalistic photographer as someone who documents the moments of the day the same way a news photographer would document a news event in an unobtrusive, fly-on-the-wall approach.

“What attracts people to us is a photojournalistic, relaxed portrait style,” says McCue. “It’s all about capturing connections to people.” No matter what style your photographer uses, make sure you’re comfortable with the shooter and his style. Consider an engagement session with your photographer to increase your understanding of how the photographer works. McCue often includes an engagement session in a photograph package to “build trust and get the couple comfortable with us,” she says.

Incredible Editing
“Couples really want digital effects,” says Wooten. “Brides and grooms are looking for bright colors by increasing saturation, black and white contrast to look glamorous and darks are really dark,” says Wooten. “Darkened edges really center the focus and pop a little more.”

Images can be edited digitally with more pizzazz than ever. It takes a lot of time, but the payoff is worth the effort. “There is a lot that goes into post-production,” says McCue. “Basically for every hour you shoot, you have two hours of post-production.” Photographers like Wooten shoot lots of photos at each event. She and her husband DeShun shoot about 1000 to 1500 photos per wedding. Then they review those images and decide which ones are the best. “Every single picture the bride and groom sees is edited,” she says. “Every picture is important. It should be finished.”

Douda agrees, saying he delivers between 400 and 600 images for each wedding he shoots. “Every image gets processed,” he says. “Taking a whole bunch of pictures allows me to work the scene.”
432_252_Art_Brides-0034
Online Services
Once images are edited and finalized for review and purchase, they’re ready to be enjoyed by couples and their guests. These days, technology allows photographers to share the images online through web portfolios on sites such as www.pictage.com and www.zenfolio.com.

“You can view and order online and guests can leave comments or view a slideshow too,” says Wooten who uses Zenfolio. “It’s really beautiful.”

“It’s such a great service to our couples,” says Pictage user McCue. “We put all the images online and they’re ready to go.” Online services allow couples to enjoy their wedding images any time they want (You can check the pictures while on your honeymoon, at your office or at home in your pajamas!) Plus you can proof pictures, order prints online, and view a slideshow of images.

The best part of online images? “The bride and groom don’t have to manage ordering for their family and friends,” says McCue. “Plus guests get to see the pictures.” McCue says she and her husband Jeff, give brides and grooms event cards on the wedding day to be distributed to guests. The 3 inch by 5 inch event cards provide login info for online photos. “We tell the story of their day through photos and use our blog to share what we enjoyed about the day,” says McCue.
432_254_Art_Brides-0035
Amazing Albums
After the images are shot, edited and proofed, the next step is creating a fashionable album. Albums are usually completed within six weeks. “We pre-design albums for couples,” says McCue. “We give them a starting point, choose images we feel tell the story, and then they can go through and swap out the images.”

“The album is presented online in a slideshow process,” says McCue who notes all proofing is done online. She says each album spread comes out as one print which is printed on a flush mount, leather-bound album.

You know what you want from your wedding photography. You’ve got pages ripped from magazines and websites and you’re planning your wedding album. Now you have to convey your photography wish list to the professional photographer who’s going to make it all happen.
432_410_Art_Couples-Bride--Groom-0076
Shot Sheets
There are certain shots every bride wants such as her walking down the aisle, dancing the first dance and the bouquet toss. But in between there are lots of other photo opportunities to be had. You’ve got to trust your photographer to use his or her instincts to capture all the golden moments and to work with you to figure out your other must-have shots.
Since your photographer isn’t going to read your mind, you need to envision your day and get a sense of what you want. Maybe you crave lots of candid moments or maybe you really want some nice family portraits with your parents and siblings.
Wedding photos with the family are often very important. “It’s virtually the only time everyone will be together,” says Brett Charles Rose of Brett Charles Rose Photography who tries to shoot a shot of the entire group.
“It’s their day,” says Rose. “There’s no status quo. It’s whatever they want.”
A shot list is a guide to help a photographer not miss any important photos.
“Prepare a list so we run down the checklist,” says John Schnack of Schnack Studios. “It also helps everyone who needs to be photographed – they know where they need to be.”
A shot sheet can be helpful but it can also be cumbersome if a photographer feels tied to the checklist. Don’t forget – a must-have list should be helpful, not a distraction. After all, you want your photographer to be able to shoot your event creatively without worrying about focusing on your checklist.
432_409_Art_Couples-Bride--Groom-0066
Good Communication
Your must-have list means nothing without an extensive conversation with your photographer. You need to explain what shots you want and what shots you don’t. Let him or her know who the important people are at the event and give your photographer a chance to ask you questions or share photo insights with you.
“If the bride and groom can be open and honest with the photographer, it’s always good,” says Schnack who says he’s always going to cover the basics such as the cake cutting or the first dance, but if a couple wants a specific shot, they should tell him in advance.
“The more a bride and groom can tell a photographer what they want, the better a photographer can do on the day,” says Schnack.
Aaron Thompson of AS Photography agrees, saying he recommends brides and grooms spend time during the consultation discussing expectations. “It should be a detailed process, not just a list,” he says.
Talk about what kinds of images you want and what’s reasonable for the photographer. Your photography time table on your wedding day will be limited so you need to be efficient. Rose says it’s best to allow at least two hours for preparation photos and one hour for post-ceremony photos.
It’s always a good idea to give your photographer as much information as possible, especially regarding small details. For example, if you want photos of each centerpiece, the buttons on your gown or notes in your guest book, tell your photographer your preferences before the big day.
432_408_Art_BobHoffmanPhotographyAndVideoBRY_3458
Personalized Photos
Your must-have shots will be different from another couple’s preferences, but that’s good. It means you’re personalizing your event and images to reflect your style.
There are so many photos to shoot like the father-daughter dance, silhouettes of the couple after the ceremony, and dancing fun with the wedding party. Others include detail shots such as close-ups of rings, holding hands, glowing candles on the cake table and images of the bride’s veil, shoes or flowers.
The possibilities are huge and it’s up to you and your photographer to choose which images you really want and can successfully capture.
For example, brides often want to see the exchange of rings in photos, but typically the ceremony set-up makes that tough to shoot.
Rose suggests the bride faces toward the guests when the groom puts the ring on her hand. “If you want that close-up,” says Rose, “Face your hand out a little toward the crowd.”
One photo that’s a must-have is that first kiss. It’s a sweet moment to treasure. Make sure the tender smooch lasts long enough to be snapped on camera.
“Hold the kiss,” says Rose. “It’s all about you two people, so hold that kiss.”
Simplify the Scene
Be as organized as possible to get the best results. Let your photographer know if you’ll have a professional coordinator or someone else to assist you during the photos. Your coordinator may organize all the people you want in photos such as your bridesmaids, all your college friends or all your co-workers.
You’ll make your photographer’s job easier by helping him out with your set-up.
“Get ready in a nice space,” says Rose. “It’s money well spent to try to find something close to the spot where you’re getting married.”
If everyone can get ready at one place such as a certain hotel, the photographer can concentrate on shooting the preparations rather than driving from location to location to shoot one element of the preparations such as the groom getting dressed.
“We can get the details of the bride getting ready and the groom getting ready and we can do it all over the property,” says Rose.
432_411_Art_Floral,-Decor,-Linens-0168
Photo Finish
Part of deciding your must-have photo list is making sure you’re working with the right photographer.
“Get to know your photographer,” advises Rose. “With my clients, I want to hang out with them, so on the wedding day, it’s just Brett behind the camera. It’s really a personality thing.”
You need to click with the person who’s going to be documenting your day from the little details to the big picture.
“The client needs to search for a photographer who matches them and takes good photos,” explains Thompson. “You have to look extensively at their portfolio to see if it meets your expectations.”
Interact with the photographer so you get a sense of how he or she works their craft. An engagement session should help you get to know your photographer better.
“An engagement session gives you a trial run before the wedding,” says Thompson. “It’s an opportunity for the bride and the groom to get to know me.”
Look for wedding photo inspiration by browsing your photographer’s portfolio and reviewing images in magazines and online. Share your preferences with your photographer and your wedding day will be camera-ready.
