Are you a bride-to-be overwhelmed by the sparkly universe of wedding photography?
As all the photographers out there seem to be like shining bright stars, but how do you decide which one is the right one for you? Don’t worry, I’m here to make your decision a bit easier with answers to the most common questions I have heard from bride’s to be! With this information, you can ensure that your wedding photos will be absolutely breathtaking and you can pick the right star who is a trusted professional you can rely on through your whole wedding planning process.
“I found the best photographer but they are out of our budget. “
Having a professional photographer means that you will have peace of mind that everything will be taken care of. It’s important to remember that your wedding photos are an investment in your memories, and they are priceless.
While hiring a professional photographer may seem expensive at first, it’s important to consider the value of what you’re getting. With a good photographer, you’re not just paying for their time on the day, but for their skill, experience and expertise in capturing the most important moments of your life.
While some couples may worry about the cost of hiring a professional photographer, it’s worth remembering that you’re investing in memories that will last a lifetime. By choosing the right photographer, you’re not just getting a collection of photos, but a work of art that will capture the beauty and emotion of your special day for years to come with no regrets after your wedding day.
“Is It worth the wait for my photos, I might get a friend to take them instead”
Many couples worry that their wedding photos will not be available to them quickly or that they won’t receive them at all. Such stories of couples having to wait 6 months to receive their photos have caused these worries to be quite common.
Couples sometimes choose to turn to friends or family to take the photos in order to avoid any delays, but they run the risk of not receiving the same quality as that of a professional photographer. As a professional wedding photographer, I guarantee that I will provide you with the quality photos that you have been dreaming of, on time.
I understand the importance of capturing your special day and ensure that I give every couple the attention and dedication they deserve by limiting the number of weddings I take on each year. This means that I have the time to carefully edit and deliver your photos without feeling rushed. Trust that I will deliver your wedding photos on time and with perfect quality. I am here to make sure that your wedding day is captured beautifully so that you can keep your memories alive for years to come.
“We can’t find a photographer who fits our style”
It can be almost impossible to locate a wedding photographer who precisely mirrors your individual style. Trust me, I understand how hard it can be. After all, you wouldn’t want your photos to appear the same as the majority of images on Instagram, right? Luckily, I am here to help! I spend time conversing with you and learning about your dream vision. Together, we will craft a photography experience that is unique to your story. Therefore, don’t settle for a photographer who doesn’t comprehend your vision.
If you aren’t particularly fond of traditional dark and moody or light and airy aesthetics. I recently had the pleasure of meeting a couple who were struggling to discover the best photographer for their expectations. They wanted something out of the ordinary that stood out from the rest that was not dark or moody or too light and airy.
This is the place where my distinct Hybrid Photography approach is helpful. I am both a film and digital photographer and absolutely love film, which has grown into a deep enthusiasm that distinguishes my style. My goal is to capture organic and realistic images that show off the loveliness of genuine skin tones. As opposed to digital photography, film demands a more time-consuming process that necessitates precision and generates classic images that stand the test of time with more meaning. So if you are seeking a look that expresses uniqueness and authenticity, then I feel confident that my passion as a Hybrid Photography could be the ideal solution for you.
“What happens if I feel awkward in front of the camera! ?”
When it comes to photography sessions, it’s only natural for couples to feel a little anxious or uneasy. That’s where I come in – I want to create an atmosphere that allows you to slow down, be comfortable and truly savour every moment. Prior to your wedding day, I take the time to get to know you so that I can develop a friendly connection with you both. This will help you feel relaxed and at ease during your session. During your session, I will slowly direct you into natural movements that reflect your unique relationship. Rather than posing in awkward and stiff positions, I’ll encourage you to interact with each other in an authentic and genuine way. That way, I’ll be able to capture those tender embraces and playful kisses that truly tell your love story.
My goal for your session is to produce images that not only look beautiful but also reflect your individual personalities and the love that you share. I want you to look back at these photos years from now and feel the same warmth and love that you felt on your wedding day.So don’t worry – I’m here to help guide you through every step of the way so that your photography session is a comfortable and unforgettable experience that you’ll treasure forever.I always suggest an engagement session, so you can experience how I work and feel more comfortable on your wedding day.
“I don’t want to miss out on my own wedding”
When you dedicate yourself to planning and designing your dream wedding, while also inviting all your family and friends, it’s crucial not to miss out on the celebration by being absent just to take photos.
By working together and carefully organising your scheduled photography timeline and ensuring that everything runs smoothly, you will be able to quickly join the party without any delays and enjoy spending time with your loved ones who have taken the time to come celebrate with you on your wedding day.
I reserve the golden hour for capturing the most important photos of the day, especially the bridal portraits. In summer, sunsets occur much later than in winter. If the sunset coincides with your reception, we can take a quick break (around 20 minutes) to capture the final bridal portraits before you continue celebrating with your family and friends.
“Will my photos be over-edited and concerned they won’t look like us”?
Have you ever seen those photos where people look like they’ve been photoshopped to the extreme? Their face is so slim that they could be mistaken for a different person, all their birthmarks magically disappear, and their body is completely transformed. Now, some people may love that look, but if you’re like me, you want to look like yourself in your wedding photos!
That’s why my photography style is all about capturing you as you are – natural and beautiful. I believe that everyone is gorgeous, both inside and out, so why would I want to change who you really are? I want you to look back at your photos and see the genuine, authentic version of yourself, not some over-edited, unrecognisable stranger.
So, rest assured, when you choose me as your photographer, you won’t have to worry about looking like a completely different person. I’ll capture the real you, in all your natural beauty. Let’s create stunning images that reflect who you truly are and make you feel confident and beautiful in every shot.
“Will I find a photographer that cares about us and our wedding day”
Let me tell you, searching for the right photographer can be like searching for a needle in a haystack. There are photographers everywhere, each claiming to be the best. But how do you find the one who truly cares about you and your wedding day?
Well, let me introduce myself. I’m not just any ordinary photographer. I go the extra mile to make sure your special day is captured perfectly. From our first phone conversation, where I take the time to understand your needs and what’s important to you, to creating a personalised collection just for you, I strive to give you exactly what you want.
I don’t believe in generic emails or cookie-cutter collections. Every couple is unique, and so is their love story and their concerns while looking for a wedding photographer. That’s why I take the time to tailor my services to fit your vision, style, and wedding day needs.
But it doesn’t stop there. On your wedding day, I’ll be there every step of the way, capturing all the moments that matter most to you. I’ll make sure you feel comfortable and at ease, so you can truly enjoy every second of your celebration.
