After going through so much research, it is a sigh of relief for the bride and groom to select the best photographer of their choice for the wedding. But during the wedding there are instances, which most of the photographers feel are being overlooked by the wedded couple at the time of photography or videography. So, we are here to discuss some of the mistakes that the couple make at the time of their wedding photography/videography session.
Fail to give enough time for couple or family portraits
The major mistake made by the bride and groom is not giving enough time for the wedding couple shots. This issue is normally accepted by most of the photographers. Since, wedding is the most memorable day of your life, thus, it needs to holds your special moments being spent with each other and your family. Try to manage and take out ample time to get clicked some of the best portraits as couple or with families. Those portraits will become your memoirs for your walls.
Fail to pick the best make-up artist for wedding functions
The next thing, which disturbs the photographer a lot, is an improper make-up of the bride and groom. In the eyes of the photographer, the make-up of the couple should be done in a natural and subtle way depending upon the skin tone and texture of the bride and groom. It should not get overdo, which will make the photographs look dull and weird. To avoid such issue, a bride or groom should prefer to get their make-up done in natural light (nearby window) for the best clicks!.
Fail to get a proper synchronisation for the venue decor
Most of the photographers feel that an important thing which found lacking during the photography session is undue mismatch of the colour combo of the wedding palace/hotel/banquet hall. The incorrect combination of the decor of the venue may affect the natural clicks, which may results in dull or dusty pictures. To avoid this issue, it is better to consult the photographer prior to finalising the inside and outside decor of the wedding place.
Making an undue selection of more than one team of photographers for the wedding function
Another important mistake made by the bride and groom is selecting more than one team for
photography from both the sides. We agree that wedding is the special occasion and needs to have extraordinary arrangements, but in limits. There is no need to hire more than one photographer or cinematographer for the wedding. This will help in avoiding the undue chaos of quality for audio or video coverage. It is better to invest time and make a perfect selection to a single team of photographer providing a full package of entertainment and joy to the family and friends through the most memorable clicks!
Fail to coordinate well with the photographer
Once you have chosen the photographer, your next task is to coordinate with him very well.Since, both the bride and groom and their families get so busy with the functions that they lack coordination with the photographer. As a result they failed to get the desired photographs or cinematography done for the final prints of wedding album or CD. Hence, it is required that a well-defined coordination should be there between the bride and groom’s families to avoid last minute of chaos of capturing desired wedding photography. For this, purpose either the bride and groom should prepare a list of poses or locations where they would like to have the maximum coverage during the function.
Avoid making unrealistic expectation for the wedding shoot or photography
According to some photographers, there are instances especially during the theme weddings,the bride or groom and their families tend to have unrealistic expectations for photographic shot or cinematography. They want the photographer to imitate the photographs or cinematography done at some of their relative’s wedding on their own function. This sometimes become impossible for the photographer as for him every wedding shoot is a
unique procedure. Every photographer tries to put his best efforts in the function he is dealing with. Thus, he always prefers to gift his clients with the token of joyful memories, which are beyond any imitation or comparison. So, it is advised to not to ask the photographer to fulfil unrealistic expectation.
