The best way to avoid problems down the road is to have an open and honest discussion about your expectations in your wedding photographer and their expectations in you. To do this you need to establish a great relationship and communication with each other.
You’re not just renting wedding cameras and equipment! Your hiring a talented artist who will capture the moments you’ll treasure forever.
*Have a Pre-Wedding shoot! Whether an engagement or bridal session, take this time to get to know your photographer and get some of those “photo” jitters OUT!”
*Remember that a photographer is a trained professional…not a phsycic, Make sure you have a relative, friend, or possibly your coordinator available to the photographer during posed shots so that he/she can point out close family members needed for those important photographs.
*Spend time with your photographer before your wedding day. Sit down for coffee, or chat with them during your engagement and/or bridal sessions. As a photographer, I will not just show up at the wedding completely unaware of what the couple likes, their personality and ideas. As a bride or groom you should expect the same!
