Everyone wants their wedding to be perfect, from the cake to the flowers. It takes a lot of time and planning to pick the perfect dress and tuxedo and the caterer. It’s a day that will last in your memory for a life time and to keep that memory fresh, it’s important to choose the right photographer.
So if you think you can handle this type of pressure while keeping a cool head and then just maybe wedding photography is for you. So what does the photographer need to shoot this type of event? What qualities and skills are necessary?
For example, a good wedding photojournalist (documentary style) takes some discipline and experience. If you choose a more traditional photographer, not trained in documentary style, and you expect him to do his journalistic style of wedding, you will not be happy. It takes a certain mindset to focus on the specialty. This is true of any style you choose.
Religious and cultural weddings: For certain types of religious weddings, men and women have very strict clothing requirements. For a conservative Jewish or Muslim wedding, females may be required to wear a dress or even a head covering.
For instance, let’s say you calculate that your costs for Show A are $3,000 (including a pro-rated amount for the one-time costs such as the booth). And let’s say you can relatively easily calculate your “gross profit” on each sale (gross sale amount minus out-of-pocket). For example, in the case of the singapore wedding photographer let’s say his gross profit margin is 50%, and the average sale is $1,000. That would give him a Gross Profit of $500 per sale.
Make a list of all the photos you want. Be specific about who is in them, the location and what time the photos are scheduled for. So, if you want a picture of you with all of your cousins outside under oak tree-write it down! Once you have your detailed list made, go over it again to make sure haven’t left anything or anyone out of the photo shoot.
Photography, like most things, is vulnerable to trends and styles. What may be today’s cool thing often becomes tomorrow’s parachute pants. Photoshop tricks, trendy poses and dress trashing sessions date quickly but great pictures are timeless. Great pictures reveal how people feel about one another, expressions and what it was like to be there at a past time and place. They are done with with superb craftsmanship, good lighting and composition. These kind of pictures never go out of style.
Weddings are complicated projects with many moving parts that can go not as planned. Take a deep breath, take many deep breaths. Focus on the positive and delegate the little details. It’s entirely possible to have a blast at your wedding and make great pictures. It is not possible if you are in a near panic most of the day. Tense photos just aren’t as good. Tense memories are worse.
