What is Wedding Photography?
Wedding photography might seem like a pretty easy concept to all. This is one of the biggest reasons why wedding photography is underrated. Wedding photography is art, it’s a skill and it needs passion and takes practice.
This is because weddings are different and not staged like any other shoots. Wedding Photography can not be compared to studio photoshoots. With studio photography, you will know that everything is staged and can be repeated if not done well the first time. It’s a different issue with weddings they are not easy to stage that’s why you need to hire a professional wedding photographer who has verifiable experience and good reviews.
What does wedding Photography include?
A professional wedding photographer should be able to cover the entire wedding, though this might differ to the packages wedding photographers offer. Below are some of the important aspects that make up wedding photography.
- Bridal preparations including makeup
- Groom’s preparations
- Bridal gown details including rings, shoes, and the bouquet.
- Groom’s suit, shoes, and dressing up.
- Bride’s Photoshoot before the ceremony.
- Bride and groom walking down the aisle
- Exchange of vows, rings, and kissing.
- Photoshoot with bridal party and family
- Couple’s photoshoot
- Décor details including cake, cake cutting, first dance, throwing of the bouquet, and Toast.
The above pointers give an idea of what wedding photography entails, sometimes it's more and sometimes less, this all depends on the needs of the couple and the number of hours the couples choose. With the above photos even if you didn’t hire a wedding videographer you will get a clear feel of the wedding and a very good-looking photo album for memories.
Do I need wedding Photography?
Yes! You can rather compromise everything else but having a wedding photographer will be the best decision you will ever make because after all is said and done it’s the photos that will remind you of your big day.
