5 Things You Should Know Prior Your Wedding Photography Session

5 Things You Should Know Prior Your Wedding Photography Session

A life changing day, and while we’re focused on the many aspects that make a wedding an unforgettable event, we should also consider making a wedding photography session fulfilling for both clients and photographer.

In this list, we are going to analyze five simple tips that can surely change the mood of a wedding session, as well as improving the final quality of the photos taken.

1.) Getting your agenda in place is a lifesaver

Many people tend to neglect how much time it takes to prepare for a wedding. Even if when you acknowledge that brides need extra time for makeup and hair, the unexpected elements add that stress factor to the event. And then there’s the friend who keeps saying that your makeup artist should add more blush or tone down eye shadow, and your mother rushing over to check if your wedding dress is ready and so on.

Those minute-eating moments are risky to neglect when you know that your photographer will be at the venue, at an arranged hour, for taking you to the outdoor photo session. Arriving 5 mins late is not the same feeling as getting there over 40 minutes late because you couldn’t avoid the distractions. Then you have to rush the photographer’s work to arrive on time for the ceremony. Photographers are professionals, and they deserve to be given enough time to perform the job.

2.) Expect the unexpected

Anything can happen on your wedding day, emphasis on the “anything” part. One of the most common mishaps during photography sessions is that makeup gets ruined, or the dress of one of the bridesmaid’s tears after a wrong step. You have to plan ahead for these possible inconveniences. The Convertible Maxi Dress will give you an advantage for situations like this. It’s a quick solution because the dress shape can be quickly changed, so it can match the other bridesmaid’s style.

3.) Family photos only mean trouble

For a photographer, nothing is as stressful as shooting the family pictures. Why? Because problems start when someone wants to be close to the newlyweds but not near a cousin they disagree with. Or, when the scene is ready but aunt Sophie is nowhere to be found, and she HAS to be in the picture so the photographer has to wait up to 15 mins for a single photo, rearranging everyone afterward.

A good move is to give the photographer a list of the people you want in the picture and have someone close by help the photographer spot who these people are among the crowd. It can save precious time and contribute to crafting spontaneous moments.

4.) Tell the photographer your story

The easiest way to achieve meaningful photographs for any couple is by letting the professional know details like where you met, where the groom proposed, and if there is an important place that set a milestone in your relationship.

    Unnatural, feigned poses do not add value to a wedding album, quite the opposite. A good photographer craves catching natural actions and knows that is what produces a quality job. You can even plan a visit to the place you had your first date for some unforgettable shots, and if you land up with a resourceful photographer, he or she can even recreate the conditions of the day you met. They might, for example, play a song, emulating a festival, etc.

    5.) Give the photographer full access

    And by full access, we mean allowing the professional to capture “backstage photographs.” The process of getting ready for the ceremony, the anxious groom waiting with his friends or parents reassuring him that everything will go smoothly, the preparations at the church and party place.

    Those shots are the extra “oomph” your event deserves and can lead to amazing memories afterward, not to mention there are many details to capture without rushing to get something good at the moment of the ceremony.

      In the end, it’s all about having a good chemistry with your photographer and allowing the professional to do their job. The photographer is probably as anxious as you. Regardless of the number of events done, every single event is unique.

      Have fun and good luck!

      How to Tap Into the Power of Positivity

      How to Tap Into the Power of Positivity

      As it appears, the human mind is not capable of not thinking, at least on the subconscious level. Our mind is always occupied by thoughts, whether we want to or not, and they influence our every action.

      “Happiness cannot come from without, it comes from within.” – Helen Keller

      When we are still children, our thoughts seem to be purely positive. Have you ever been around a 4-year old who doesn’t like a painting he or she drew? I haven’t. Instead, I see glee, exciting and pride in children’s eyes. But as the years go by, we clutter our mind with doubts, fears and self-deprecating thoughts.

      Just imagine then how much we limit ourselves in every aspect of our lives if we give negative thoughts too much power! We’ll never go after that job we’ve always wanted because our nay-saying thoughts make us doubt our abilities. We’ll never ask that person we like out on a date because we always think we’re not good enough.

      We’ll never risk quitting our job in order to pursue the life and the work of our dreams because we can’t get over our mental barrier that insists we’re too weak, too unimportant and too dumb. We’ll never lose those pounds that risk our health because we believe we’re not capable of pushing our limits. We’ll never be able to fully see our inner potential because we simply don’t dare to question the voices in our head.

      But enough is enough! It’s time to stop these limiting beliefs and come to a place of sanity, love and excitement about life, work and ourselves.

      So…how exactly are we to achieve that?

      It’s not as hard as it may seem; you just have to practice, practice, practice. Here are a few ideas on how you can get started.

      1. Learn to substitute every negative thought with a positive one.

      Every time a negative thought crawls into your mind, replace it with a positive thought. It’s just like someone writes a phrase you don’t like on a blackboard and then you get up, erase it and write something much more to your liking.

      2. See the positive side of every situation, even when you are surrounded by pure negativity.

      This one is a bit harder to put into practice, which does not mean it’s impossible.

      You can find positivity in everything by mentally holding on to something positive, whether this be family, friends, your faith, nature, someone’s sparkling eyes or whatever other glimmer of beauty. If you seek it, you will find it.

      3. At least once a day, take a moment and think of 5 things you are grateful for.

      This will lighten your mood and give you some perspective of what is really important in life and how many blessings surround you already.

      4. Change the mental images you allow to enter your mind.

      How you see yourself and your surroundings make a huge difference to your thinking. It is like watching a DVD that saddens and frustrates you, completely pulling you down. Eject that old DVD, throw it away and insert a new, better, more hopeful one instead.

      So, instead of dwelling on dark, negative thoughts, consciously build and focus on positive, light and colorful images, thoughts and situations in your mind a few times a day.

      If you are persistent and keep on working on yourself, your mind will automatically reject its negative thoughts and welcome the positive ones.

      And remember: You are (or will become) what you think you are. This is reason enough to be proactive about whatever is going on in your head.
