Happy New Year, friends! So many of you are getting married THIS year! Sooo exciting! I’m back again to chat more about ways to get the most out of your wedding day photography. I know it seems like I say this in every article, but today’s topic is something that I think is SUPER important. Whether you do or do not connect with your photographer can make a world of difference in the final product.
There are a couple of reasons that connecting with your photographer is so important. First, you are going to be spending a lot of time with your photographer on the day of your wedding and you want to make sure you at least enjoy their presence, right? If you don’t feel comfortable around him or her, chances are pretty good that you will remember that feeling when you reminisce back to your wedding day. And you do not want those memories clouding the other memories of your beautiful day.
In addition, if you don’t connect with your photographer, your pictures may not reach their full potential. Feeling uncomfortable or frustrated during portraits can make it almost impossible to capture you in all of your joyous beauty. You may not look as beautiful as you could in your pictures if you were completely comfortable, relaxed, and feeling good.
You also want to make sure that your personalities connect. This helps with the communication on your wedding day and helps the process of portraits go as smooth as possible.
Overall, you want a photographer that brings a good energy to your day. Someone you enjoy, someone who understands your vision and whose vision you trust, as well as someone who genuinely makes you feel good about being in front of the camera.
Thank you again, Liz, for your advice … it is so important so that the brides have the best visual memories from the day that they can! Liz Cook is the owner of Sincerely, Liz: Photography, and I encourage you to view her work by clicking here.
