several types of photographs, which will be taken at your wedding. a: The
groups, close-ups, long shots, etc. from which you chose the minimum
number for which you have contracted and b: the specially requested
photographs which you have asked to be taken c: photojournalistic images
which are at the discretion of the photographer.
photojournalistic images are very individual and it is best to look
closely at what the photographer has done in the past to see if the style
is in keeping with what you have in mind. Do remember though that
exact replicas of images that you have seen may not be possible as each
and every occasion is very different.
So now we come
to the photographs, which 'may' be taken. We must though draw your
attention to that word 'may'? It is impossible to say definitely that a
picture will be taken as weddings are so un predictable - guests not being
present or 'disappearing' when they are needed or vicars being
uncooperative, etc. However, your photographer will be doing his best to
take everything that is expected of him or her.
story begins at the Brides home, so it is best to decide what photographs
you want well in advance. Remember that delays can be caused by hair
stylists or florists who arrive late, not to mention the bridesmaids and
matron of honor! Then, on the morning of your wedding day before
your photographer arrives you should look around the room and remove
anything, which you would not want to appear in the photographs?
opportunity for photographs is at the church, your photographer will want
to capture images of the Groom and Best Man along with the Ushers and other
principle guests, such as the Brides Parents, The Grooms Parents and
perhaps even the Grandparents
As you will
realize weddings can be emotional occasions so 'we' have to be carefully
avoid upsetting people. So at the pre-wedding chat your photographer will
ask you about parents being present and if there is any 'stand-in' for any
parent who may not be. However, it is important that you make sure that
you tell 'stand-ins' that you have chosen them so that they know this
before 'the day'. The photographer will ask you about divorced
parents, step parents and if you wish them to be photographed.
etiquette does allow estranged partners not to stand next to each other or
even be photographed together.
