10 Wedding Photography Secrets Wedding Planning Series

1. Reduce the number of shooting hours. Reducing the number of shooting hours allows you to get the best photographer for which your budget allows. It is better to pay a bit more to get a good photographer, perhaps cutting the hours down to just the bridal preparation, ceremony and bride and groom session in order to get good shots, rather than lots of mediocre shots of the entire wedding and reception. – Imaginary Photography Affordable Wedding Photography

2. Get the album done at a later stage. I have been approached by quite a few brides and grooms after their weddings to help them with doing a “mock wedding shoot” or wanting help trying to fix up their wedding photos as they were unhappy with the photos they got from their wedding day. – Imaginary Photography

3. Budget to spend 10% on your photographic requirements. Resist the temptation to employ the services of a friend who “has a great camera”. This could end in in disaster. – Brett Florens Photography Cheap Wedding Photographers

4. Hire a stylist. A stylist knows how to make you look your best and knows that you need to wear more than usual for the photos. – Alana Meyer Photography, Johannesburg

5. Make sure you don’t hold yourself too stiffly. Ask your photographer to show you a couple of shots to give you an idea of what you look like, and also what your make-up looks like on the day. – Imaginary Photography

6. Ask for referrals for professional hair and make-up artists to make the best selection. I cannot stress enough how important proper make-up is for your photographs. – Stella Uys Photography

7. Be sure to have a hair and makeup trial at least a month before your wedding for peace of mind. Use this trial also for your engagement session as this will make you feel fabulous and even more comfortable about yourself. – Louise Vorster Photography

8. Even if it seems counterintuitive, most wedding make-up artists will swear on false eyelashes. Not only do they make your eyes pop, but you will hardly even notice that they’re there. Make sure to research and consult with your make-up artist to know which ones to buy. – Louise Vorster Photography Professional Wedding Photographers

9. Make sure to tell the photographer what you expect from them. This will help your photographer to work towards creating photographs that will blow your mind. – Jaco Viljoen Photography

10. Research photo ideas and pick a few favourite shots. Send these to your photographer and ask them if they will be possible based on the location, season and time of day you have selected Wedding Videographer
