If you are beginning to plan your wedding or you are photographer looking to develop a niche for yourself in the wedding photography industry, you'll probably hear the term "natural light wedding photographer" more and more...
If you talk to professional photographers, particularly those who specialize in weddings, you'll hear of an interesting development in the industry. Engagement photos sessions are now seen as an essential part of your wedding photography, and there is just as much effort put into good quality shots as there will be in capturing the actual wedding event. For thousands of couples, the beauty and romance of the Cape Cod area is the ultimate place for their wedding day, as well as their engagement, and in both instances, it calls for good photos.
I suggest the following top 10 locations in Cape Cod for an engagement photo session.
If you speak to most couples planning a wedding, you'll discover that they have thought about both a photographer and a videographer. While almost all agree that they need photography, it is still not a certainty that a professional videographer will participate. Yet, in one recent report, those who celebrated a five year anniversary, or higher, indicated that they wished they had made videos of the day. Expressing that it would have been great to have footage of family, friends and special moments, they almost universally suggested videographers.
So, with that in mind, it becomes necessary to know what to ask of potential videographers as they do differ quite substantially from photographers. Naturally, there will be some questions that you'll always ask anyone providing a service (i.e. "Do you have some references?" and so on). However, there are also more specific issues to address. Let's look at 10 key questions you must ask your wedding videographer to ensure the best results.
It happened - the proposal came out of nowhere, the all-important "yes" was said, and now you are engaged. Yet, you want something to remember this huge moment by, and so you've decided to book an engagement photo shoot. However, even as you were talking to your partner, the photographer and friends, you worried that you might not look natural, comfortable or happy during the shoot. After all, most people aren't big fans of posing in front of a camera, and if you're like others, you’ve seen people taking awkward or even unflattering poses for an engagement photo session.
There is a very specific process that you might want to use when hiring a wedding photographer.
While you probably already know to look at a handful of portfolios and meet up with a few photographers to get an idea of style and personality (after all, if someone is super abrasive or intimidating you won't want them shooting the wedding).
However, what's that next step once you've narrowed it down to two or three choices?
The next step is to ask them each the same questions, and here are 10 questions to ask your wedding photographer to ensure that they are the right fit.
If you are just beginning to plan your wedding and you haven't been greatly involved in a wedding of any kind over the past few years, the concept of the "unplugged wedding" may be new to you. Believe it or not, this is an actual thing and it boils down to having a wedding where technology is present and in use or one where there are no cell phones and cameras operating and capturing every possible moment.
