Tips for Working with Your Wedding Photographers

Your wedding photographer will play a very important role in your wedding, so you'll need to learn how to work with him or her to get the most amazing pictures possible.

Here are some tips for working with your photographer on the big day.

Pre-Wedding Session

This session will help you feel more comfortable around the camera for the big day, and most wedding photographers will agree to a pre-wedding session as it won't cost them anything. Most will also be happy to do this as it helps them see how the two of you interact and get a feel for your best poses or features.

Give Wedding Photographers a Wide Time

Your wedding photographers will become very important on your wedding day, so give them as much time as you can spare. The more time your photographer gets to spend with you, the better the pictures will turn out. Ask them ahead of time how much time you should set aside for portraits.

Specific Shot Lists

Give your wedding photography team an incredibly long, complex list of specific poses and moments to capture should be avoided, if possible. You'll need to trust your photographer to do what they do best; after all, you hired a professional for a reason. Don't ask your photographer to recreate something they did before because they will want to create something unique for you and you only.

Ask Questions!

Don't be afraid to ask wedding photographers plenty of questions. You want to work well with the photographer, so ask what you can do to make the job easier for them. It goes without saying that professional photographers will do the best they can under any circumstances, but you can do your part to make conditions ideal to produce the best images possible.
