Wedding Event photography Tips

By Jude Matthews Wong

An event photographer is someone who you want to photograph your wedding. You will want them to possess a few qualities such as style, motivation, experience and good communication. An excellent event photographer will only possess these qualities through experience, so making sure that he/she is well trained and can focus on what you want is important.

Every event photographer will have his own style. Your ideas about your wedding should coincide with the photographer's style. Otherwise, a horrible experience might be the end result. The style that your event photographer will use will vary. Some photographers like to be traditional and others like to be wild. Photos of the bride and groom, and the wedding party are examples of a traditional style. Making funny faces and having completely serious faces might be considered a wild style.

An event photographer should be highly motivated. Try to find one who is. You do not want to have someone who is inactive and sitting around missing all the good pictures they could be capturing. Motivation is not just about wanting to do the job, but finding a way to enjoy it and bring trust as well as good verbal communication to everyone as well.

Experience can only come to an event photographer over time. Make sure you ask your photographer how long he/she has been in the business, where he attended school and for how long, and who they were employed with before they went into business for themselves (if that is the case). This should help you when making a clear decision about an event photographer. If they are now employed by themselves, you can find out what kind of work they produced when they were employed by asking their previous employer. It's better to find out now even if it is kind of a sneaky way of getting the information.

It is a good idea to choose an event photographer who you are comfortable around. And they should try to make you feel comfortable and relaxed when around them. Later on at the wedding, this will help them to capture the precious photos. If you are nervous around your event photographer you will see that emotion in your wedding pictures.
