Tips for Planning Wedding Photography for Your Big Day
1. Decide on the type of wedding photography you would like and choose a package.
This is the most important decision you will make when it comes to choosing the perfect package for your wedding photographs. The style and the subject matter are the two most important things you should consider.
2. Pick your photographer.
Your choice should be based on both the style and the subject of your wedding photography. The photographer should be experienced, have experience in working with large groups and families, and be able to adapt to different types of events and wedding styles.
3. Arrange payment and confirm with the photographer.
Some photographers charge per shoot. Others offer a full service package, where the photographer provides all services for one price. The most expensive package is typically the one that is the most comprehensive, but this is not always the case. Always check what is included in each package to ensure there is no hidden costs.
4. Choose a day and time.
Arrange to meet your photographer a week or two before your wedding, to discuss your budget, and to decide on a date and time for the photography. It is important to be flexible when it comes to scheduling the time, since you may need to change the schedule to accommodate a guest, a bridal party member, or a close family member.
5. Arrange accommodation for the photographer and the rest of the team.
If you are having a formal wedding, it is important to arrange accommodation for the photographer, as this will ensure that the wedding will look its best and that the photographer can capture the emotions in the best light. This is especially important if you are having multiple weddings on the same day. In such cases, the photographer will need to move around the venue, so it is important to think about how to accommodate his or her needs.
6. Find out what will be needed during the day.
Depending on the type of wedding, you may need to inform the photographer of specific requirements. For example, if you are planning a church wedding, you will need to inform the photographer of any religious requirements or limitations. It is also important to confirm the location of the ceremony. If you are having a backyard wedding, you will need to tell the photographer the size of the space, number of people expected, and any extra furniture or equipment that will be required.
7. Ask about the use of props and special items.
It is important to be aware of what can be used and what cannot be used. For example, if you are planning a beach wedding, you may need to inform the photographer about any special items, like umbrellas, beach towels, and sandcastles.
8. Confirm the style of the wedding.
The style of the wedding will impact the type of photography you will require. For example, if you are planning an outdoor wedding, the photographer will need to ensure that the sun is out and that there is enough light to allow for natural poses and to create dramatic backdrops. This means that he or she will require a different approach to a wedding where the bride and groom are wearing white dresses.
9. Decide whether you will hire a videographer.
If you are planning to use a videographer, it is important to ensure that you understand the terms of the agreement. This includes the fees, payment arrangements, and how the video will be used.
10. Confirm the venue and the reception.
You should check if there are any restrictions regarding the location and how the venue will be used. For example, if you are holding the reception outside, you will need to inform the photographer of the hours you will need the venue to be open and the minimum number of guests you will need.
11. Discuss the details with the venue.
Arrange a meeting with the venue staff to discuss the details of the day, including catering, décor, and music. Be sure to ask questions about any specific requests you have and to clarify any points that are unclear.
12. Make final preparations.
Finalize the plans for the day and make sure you have all the necessary documentation and permission forms.
13. Write a list of any last minute changes.
Keep a list of the last minute changes to the day that you need to make. It is important to confirm the final arrangements with the venue and to make sure that you have all the necessary permissions.
14. Check the weather and confirm the dress code.
Check the weather forecast to confirm that the wedding will be a pleasant, sunny day.
15. Inform the other members of the wedding party.
Ensure you have all of the information needed to contact your bridesmaids and groomsmen so that they can arrive on time.
