The big day has arrived, you are there ready to shoot. Now, we will give you tips on situations that deserve memories. Take photos of the groom getting dressed, finishing dressing, fixing his hair, putting on his shoes, or the bride putting on makeup.
Take photos of the empty ceremony and reception locations, enhance the decor, including close-ups where you notice the greatest care. Pay attention to details, such as the bride and groom’s cake, the bridesmaids’ dresses, the costume of the lady and page couple, the parents, etc. Do not leave anyone important out, but do not photograph only people, but value all the preparation of the place. This is cool and the couple will live to remember. Shoot a lot, tirelessly.
Discovering the reasons why that decoration was made, or some situation of how the bride and groom met, are details that will allow you to realize the importance of all the things involved in this very important moment.
Photos are the eternal record of marriage. Through them, it is possible to keep moments and sensations of the big day forever: the presence of the grandparents, the entrance with the parents, the passionate kiss and the joyful looks of the bride and groom, the sweetness of the pages and the ladies, the happiness of the guests, godparents’ participation, dance floor animation, among many other highlights of the ceremony and party.
Therefore, hiring a good photographer is crucial to have the perfect photos on your wedding day! We talked with photographers Renata and Filipe, partners of Renata Philipo Fotografia, to find out how to get incredible wedding images to put together the most special album. Creative and artistic, the photos of Renata Philipo Fotografia eternalize unique moments of the wedding with sensitivity, care, and professionalism and you know what you’re talking about!
You will be able (and this is a very nice difference) to visit the places where the photos will take place (the bride and groom’s houses, church, beauty salon, reception) and prepare in advance in your mind where the photos will be taken. You even have the option of scheduling a free photoshoot at these locations to meet the bride and groom and the people important to them, such as parents and groomsmen. This establishes a relationship of trust and you will know how they behave in front of the camera if they are shyer, more outgoing and so you can improve so that they are ok on their wedding day.
If you know the locations of the event well, you can take external photos or have other ideas that you would not have with the agility and movement during the wedding, especially if you are starting in wedding photography, because the more you are aware of what will happen, the safer it will be at the time it is worth, and many couples are happy to notice your care.
