Communication is Key
If you haven’t checked out “The New Indian Bride” yet, you’re missing out on a great blog by a recently married Indian woman. Since she just got married, I think she offers some great insight into planning & executing a wonderful wedding day.
This week features articles about photography and I’ve been featured for the initial article about tips to get great wedding day photography. We’ve skipped over the part about questions to ask when selecting your photography or tips on how to make the final decision. Those tip lists are really all over the web…just google it and you’ll find tons of results. Instead, we’ve focused on some things to keep in mind as you lead up to your wedding day.
Not surprisingly, the biggest theme is communication with your photographer.
As a creative professional, my clients generally give me full reign to ensure their photos and album layouts look great, but it’s still really important for me to know what’s on my bride’s mind. I will usually get a great understanding of this through many conversations with my clients, but the tips listed should give you a great idea into the conversations you SHOULD be having with your photographer (and your videographer and other vendors). If there’s something really passionate about or concerned about, just let your photog know. It may open up a lot more discussion, but every word will help ensure you and your photographer are on the same page and will likely lead to better photos.
