How do I work at weddings?
I believe it was already about 100 times🤪 I said that I love photography for here I’m supposed to deal with people. I could probably become a good psychologist, but I am a photographer!
In my profession I vote for individual approach instead of mass market. For there is nothing more vague and indefinite in the world than the human wishes!
“I want something I don’t know what” or “I want like that but different”😂 This is so challenging and I love it!
That’s why I don’t try to push your wishes into strict packages and fees, but work in terms of your ideas and budget.
I usually divide an average wedding day into chain of events to help the newweddies get a better idea of what they want from photographer. So they are:
🧖🏼♀️Getting ready – by bride and groom separately, make-up, tears (usually relatives’ ones, for newweddies are normally happy and excited), knotting of a tie, huggs, etc.
🙋🏼♀️First look – bride and groom see each other for the first time (I mean in wedding dresses, usually they are acquainted beforehand🙂). I believe it is the most delicate moment of the whole day! Purest emotions! I shoot aside and never interfere!
💃Portraits – of the groom and bride. That’s what we usually put into frames and hang on the walls!☝️
👯♀️Bridal party – pictures of the newweddies with bridal party members together or apart, standing on one foot or on head, or right behind that tree – just anything you like!
👰🏻Ceremony – exchanging of the rings at the church or on the beach, in the forest camp, skyscraper roof. Any ideas, don’t be shy!
❤️Promenade – young couple could and should get some rest of these formalities. These pictures are usually more alive and natural.
👨👩👧👦Family shoot – these pictures usually hang in your parents’ house😅
🕺🏼Reception- includes guests shooting (group shots with groom and bride, those rare cadres with your forty-seven cousin); just-married entering the location; cake cutting; just-married coming out of location.
Weddings differ – they may be big and small, full day or just ceremony, traditional and inventive, with fighting or without. I work with any wedding or with any part of it depending on your requirements, wishes and budget!
