Trust is the number one ingredient to any relationship and this is equally as true for the relationship you have with your Kentucky wedding photographer. There's a reason you chose someone to capture the most important day of your life. While you may have a vision of how you want your images to turn out, for the most part you are going to put a lot of trust in your photographer. Trusting your wedding photographer a little more in these main areas will not only result in the best images possible for you to remember your wedding day but will also relieve you of some stress.
1. Choosing the Location of the Shot
You Kentucky wedding photographer will take the time to familiarize themselves with your reception location or areas around your ceremony site to find the best places to photograph. They'll know what areas get the best light and where the best scenery is. Also, usually light trumps scenery when it comes to location choices. You would be amazed where some of the most beautiful photographs were taken! Surprisingly, it could have been a less than ideal location with amazing light.
2. Time of Day to Shoot
Like I already mentioned, lighting is key to creating beautiful images and using natural light will produce the best lighting setting. That doesn't mean any time of the day will give you the same results. Your Kentucky photographer will know what time of day will be best to take those gorgeous outdoor shots that won't leave harsh shadows on your face or when to sneak outside to take some night inspired shots.
Trust your wedding photographer to know what pose is the most flattering for you. They can see how the light is illuminating you and what is in the background. While most photographers will take into consideration your photography ideas, you should allow them to direct most of your poses since they are aware of the most flattering poses for your body types, the location and the desired effect of the photograph.
4. Editing Your Photos
Trust your Kentucky photographer’s creative eye during the editing process. They will know which images will look best in black and white, color, cropped and which ones to add special effects too, if any. Part of the editing process is a part of their style and this is one of the reasons you hired them. Trust them to use their skills to make each image stunning.
5. Designing & Printing Your Album
Your photographer knows where to get quality albums made and probably has a long-term relationship with a reputable album making company. The worst thing you can do is have stunning wedding photographs, order an expensive album and find the colors are off, the image is blurred or it simply won’t last the generations albums should be cherished. Knowing where to get your albums made, what size they should be done in and which designs will look best in your albums is part of the package you get when you hired a professional Kentucky wedding photographer. Trust them and listen to what they think will look best for what you want.
