Few people say weddings are a headache. Well, okay, that's not true; a wedding has the potential to be one of the wonderful celebrations of love and friendship that you can ever experience, but achieving equilibrium between all the moving parts that go into wedding planning can be a massive task. Perhaps the biggest challenge, other than saving up a lot of money, is that you're relying on all your various friends and relatives to come together in the same room for a full day. When you're not keeping up with requests about who they'd rather not sit next to, you're fielding their suggestions on every single detail from the dress through to the jewelry.
And when it comes to opinions, people tend to get fairly combative on the topic of best wedding photographers. There are some that will warn you to increase your budget more for your wedding photographer than for your wedding dress, as a good wedding photographer can make a cheap dress look good. There are others, though, who blindly believe that because everyone, including your Aunt, can operate an iPhone these days, there's no need to invest in a pro. It doesn't take a genius to find that the right approach is probably on neither the 'bankruptcy' nor the 'just wing it' like it's the end of the world. That being said, finding the best wedding photographer in Chennai for your event can still be quite a big task.
Undoubtedly, for one of the most important days of your life, you'll need to turn to the best wedding photographer to capture the most important moment for your life. That's a given. But how to choose a wedding photographer? And how to establish the best relationship with them?
How can you tell whether or not someone is a good photographer?
What makes a 'good' wedding photographer is very subjective, so do your own research. Take time to look through different photographers websites, including their branding, social media, full galleries and if everything looks good, then you have a winner. Also, communicate with your photographer through email or speak and meet with your photographer wherever possible.
Why it is important to spend time with a prospective photographer before the event and what you should be expecting?
It is really important for a photographer to create a rapport with a couple before the wedding. I like to have an actual conversation, in person if possible, if not over the phone. The couple needs to feel comfortable and relaxed, as they're inviting the photographer into one of their most romantic events, into their family, and often also in their home. So, it's vital that everybody feels at ease. Wedding photographers are pretty mobile these days too, so don't rule out a photographer from a different area to your wedding.
How to find the style of photography you want?
There's a really wide variety of different wedding photography styles out there, be it differences in composition, tone or light. Whether a photographer shoots reportage, fine art or with some sense of humor. Each wedding photographer has their own unique way to work under pressure or shooting at the moment always brings out something different or unique to each wedding. It's really important to do your research as to what style you, as a couple, want, as it's never one choice for every situation. Also, you must keep an open mind. Go with your instinct and ask yourself. What is it that makes you stop and look again at his work? How does it make you feel? And can you imagine yourself in the pictures?
Can different styles suit different types of event?
Personally, I don't think they do. Trust in your photographer's idea and aesthetic and they will deliver. As a wedding photographer, you're there to document a couple's day, and it's their day, so upon delivering a wedding you want to take the couple back to the moment and the way they felt. Just be mindful of all the different factors of the day which can affect the photos, anything from changeable weather, different locations and even ceremony times that will bring changes in light. If you book a wedding in winter, when the skies are likely to be overcast, just try not to expect lots of sunbursts or light leaks. Your photos may end up with a moodier or more dramatic feel to them, as displays the day's atmosphere.
What should you expect in a wedding photography package?
Every wedding photographer has their own way of offering their services and some offer different packages, so it's very important to ask about this up front. Get a prospectus or quotation for their services. You can ask for this information long before you book and indeed it might help you come to a decision. Infinity A Media Store offers a full day's coverage, 350 - 400 images, one traditional video, your wedding film in a Blu-ray DVD and a complimentary pre or post-wedding outdoor photoshoot at a minimum cost.
In their prospectus, a photographer should also give you some instructions about the time period. They will know their own workloads and so can give you some assurances about when you might expect to receive your wedding photos. A photographer's job doesn't end the moment the wedding is over. Editing is a lengthy process and delivery can be anything between six weeks to six months, so it's always best to ask. Especially when you know how high a couple's expectations are likely to be of their wedding day and that's why Infinity A Media store is one of the best wedding photographers in Chennai. We understand your expectations and deliver the results in an efficient and timely manner.
