What to Photograph and Film: Wedding Photography and Videography

When it comes time to start planning your wedding, one of the most important aspects to pay close attention to is the wedding photographer. Wedding photos are a major part of any wedding day. They serve as the life long memories of your special day, where you and your loved one have entered into the union of marriage and proclaimed your love for one another in front of all your family and friends.

Choosing the right wedding photographer is important in making sure your big day is captured and preserved in a way that reflects you as a couple, as well as the theme and vibe of the day itself. Wedding photos should serve as an active recount of the day, with photographs either posed or captured in a way that really reflects the essence of the day. A good wedding photographer will be able to understand and convey your feelings through your wedding photos.

Before deciding on a photographer it is a good idea to meet with potential candidates and get a feel for the type of work they produce, their own creative ideas as well as gain an understanding of their interpretation of your wedding ideas. Making sure your wedding photographer understands the direction you want your wedding photos to take is important as you do not want to end up with photos that you’re unhappy with. Another added benefit of a wedding photographer is that they normally offer free photo editing when compiling the album, this may offer the bride some peace of mind as they are normally quite worried about how the photos will turn out.

Most wedding photographers also offer a videography service as well traditional photography. Wedding videography is a fantastic way to document the events taking place throughout the entire day, including the before, during and after ceremony moments. Having a wedding videographer working simultaneously with your wedding photographer is a great way to make sure every aspect of your day is captured, encompassing both the bride and groom’s views. Wedding videos are a great way to relive the excitement of the big day and experience aspects you may have been too busy to see on the day.
