Capturing the perfect memory
11th July 2011
Welcome to our first blog for 2011 as part of the Maleny Montville Wedding Professionals. We hope we can help you when it comes to choosing a photographer and would like to offer some helpful information along the way.
As we near the end of the month and August approaches, we prepare for a busy time ahead and look forward to being able to provide amazing images for our couples.
We thought we would open with the importance of a photographer for your wedding day.
With the age of digital cameras making more and more people budding photographers, some couples wonder whether it’s worth paying for a professional photographer to capture their wedding
Recording images through a camera onto a digital format is only 50% of what a good photographer will do for you on your wedding day. A professional photographer who specialises in wedding photography knows everything there is to know about weddings, the formalities, who not to miss out in photos with the family, and in many cases, they will end up being one of best helpers on the day.
Establishing a good rapport and feeling comfortable with your photographer is essential for successful photos. After all, the wedding photographer will spend the most time with the bride and groom on the day. It is important to note though, that although the photographer will be with the
bride and groom for most of the day, a real professional will be unobtrusive, but completely in control within the background.
CAPTURING THE PERFECT MEMORY AT JUST THE RIGHT TIME
It is the photographer’s job to capture the perfect moment at the exact moment, and that is why it’s worth choosing a professional. They have the experience and tools to do it, as well as the speed and insight to be in the right position at the right time capturing the emotion of the subjects with just the right amount of lighting.
Although it is very hard to predict what will happen at each wedding, a good wedding photographer learns that there are foreseeable moments during a wedding to look for. They also have the experience to know that unforeseeable events may occur, and can prepare themselves and their equipment to minimise any such events spoiling the photos.
UNDERSTANDING AND ANTICIPATING THE EMOTIONS AND THE MOMENTS
There are certain times throughout the day when people will be a little bit more emotional than at other times. Prior to the ceremony, many of the images capture a sense of nervousness and anticipation from people, whereas after the ceremony, there is almost a sense of relief and jubilation. A great photographer knows that this is where the emotions start and where the beautiful images will start to happen. The first time a father sees his daughter in her wedding dress, for instance, is just one of these beautiful moments worth capturing.
