Mistakes to Avoid While Hiring a Wedding Photographer
Wedding photography has come a long way today since the days of staged , posed
photographs . With candid wedding photographers in Delhi and all major Indian
cities taking weddings by storm, this new age category of wedding photographers
are no longer an afterthought.
Here are some mistakes to avoid while hiring them
Not having a wedding photographer for pre-wedding shoots:
While the photographer will be present to cover your wedding memories, not having
a pre-wedding shoot means you will not get a chance to be photographed when you
are relaxed, with your loved ones. A lot of wedding photography in India tend to be
overcrowded by guests so pre-wedding photography is a must for photos you can
frame in your new house.
Hiring separate photographers for both sides of the family
This is an absolute waste of not just money but also results in an inferior experience
for both the wedding photographer who has to jostle through ten cameras to click
his shot as well as you, who will have a crowd of candid wedding photographers on
your head. Besides by asking them to shoot both sides of the wedding, you will
ensure you get a better package deal.
Not telling the photographer the exact gathering size
Why does the photographer need a gathering size? Because he needs to arrange for
second shooters accordingly. While you definitely don’t need a barrage of a 10
person army, hiring 2 shooters for a 800 people wedding is probably not going to be
enough. Remember- one wedding photographer for the girl’s side, one wedding
photographer for the boy’s side and one shooter who floats around clicking guests is
probably the rule to follow.
Thinking you have to limit yourself to a city
Wedding photographers are perhaps the most mobile wedding vendor category. If
you are looking for a wedding photographer in Delhi, you can get one from
neighbouring towns or even other metros , sometimes even without travel costs.
You don’t want to compromise on the quality of your memories so why limit it to
Messing up the lighting
Great wedding photography requires great lighting. When you decorate your stage
with LED lights in the backdrop , that is the worst enemy of a wedding photography
as it can turn all your photographs black. Ensure that any lighting is always as an
accent to fall on the couple, and not as a backdrop to ensure your candid
photographer stays happy
