Sometimes the beauty of the damaged caused by service providers who put his ego. Not aware that during the event, the sanctity should not be disturbed. Elements that are in the party room must remain unsightly eye. Therefore we need the understanding of all parties to guard it.
What should be done by a wedding photographer?
* Attendance at the technical meeting / committee meeting. Convey the list required for the photo. For example: room for a photo studio, power, outlet location, etc.. Good coordination between service providers will make all kind of regular basis. There is no aisle in front turn out the cable for example.
* Understand the structure of the event and be present as scheduled. Backup time to prepare & equipment. If the location of the event we do not know, do the previous survey. On the day everyone is busy with their affairs, do not add to their burden.
* Dressed in a polite and fair. Especially in a traditional wedding, you should not wear sandals, poloshirt / tshirt and jeans “faded”. Family bridal sandals no matter which brand you use. Croocs though, does not deserve to be a party room.
* Eat before work. Remember … we come to work
* Understand the rules that apply in the location of the event. For example: adab enter mosques, ban on climbing the altar of the church, duty wear traditional clothes, etc.
* Does not interfere with other personnel on duty. For example: obstruct views of the host.
* Remind the bride and groom to do things that will make the picture better. For example: lots of smiles, not too often looked down, the body must be sturdy, time to pray lifting both hands up high, and so on. Give these things before the event or several days before, not during the event because it would interfere with concentration / damage solemnity procession
* In the event shower the bride, the family often women and allow only immediate family present at the event. Assign a woman photographer for this purpose
* Super-wide lenses often produce a dramatic effect. However, when used at the wrong moment will interfere. Use it wisely super wide lens.
* Use the equipment appropriately. Consider whether the room will be distracted by the aesthetics of photographic equipment used. Brides pay dearly for the decoration of the room. Umbrella & softbox guests often obstruct the view towards the stage / altar. This is where a photographer was tested, not dependent on one type of instrument only.
* Do not be too much to set, submit the proceedings to the host
* Shown low profile fused with the show, so the presence of photographers do not make awkward / ruin the atmosphere. Do not be too often and then ply the grounds to pursue the moment. Place a few photographers at strategic locations to get all the shooting angle
* If any officer video / Another photographer location of the event, smart set “deal”. Eg for not taking a position facing each other which resulted in us come canned (“in frame”)
* Stay on the promise when the results will be submitted photos
The last, a professional photographer never showed the picture that failed to clients. Always show the best photos and save the photos as raw introspection ugly.
May we be the ones better … ….
