As a wedding photographer, I’ve had the privilege of capturing countless special moments for couples. From intimate first looks to wild dance parties, I’ve learned that the most memorable and beautiful moments are the ones that are authentic and genuine to YOU as the couple. Whether it’s the photos of those candid moments or those formal portraits with all your loved ones, every wedding is unique and special.
To help you achieve that, here are 5 tips that can help make your wedding photography experience feel exactly that – genuine and authentically you, so that you can look back at these memories and feel those moments.
A genuine connection with your photographer is key to capturing authentic and candid moments. Take the time to get to know your photographer and make sure you feel comfortable with them. Trust is essential and feeling like you can communicate is key, so keep that in mind when interviewing your potential wedding photographers.
Don’t feel pressured to conform to traditional wedding poses or themes. It’s your wedding day so embrace your unique style, and the photos will reflect what you’re feeling!
Communication is key when it comes to getting the photos you want. Make sure you communicate your vision and schedule with your photographer ahead of time. Discuss what you want to capture and when, so that your photographer can make sure to be in the right place at the right time. A little bit of planning can go a long way in ensuring that your photos are authentic and capture the true essence of your wedding day.
To capture those natural, spontaneous photos, it’s important for you two to be fully present in every experience. You’ve been planning this day for months and now it’s time to be all in and trust that the photographer you’ve hired has got your back! Embrace the imperfections and create beautiful and unforgettable memories that make your wedding day your own.
Finally, remember to have fun and enjoy the experience! Let your photographer capture the genuine and authentic moments of your wedding day, and trust them to deliver the best possible results. You picked them for a reason, so relax and enjoy your day!
