Ever seen those wedding photos where the shadow of the photographer was captured? Or those that were taken against the sun and the couple can hardly open their eyes? That is the fault of the wedding photographer, an armature in this case. A professional photographer should know what angle of the shoot will give a better picture.
Remember a wedding happens once in a lifetime, it is important to save every moment of the event. With the digital revolution of wedding photography, anyone can be a photographer as long as they have a digital camera. However, regardless of the number of photos they might have taken in the past, none beats the photos that are done by a pro. Every couple wants that one photo that they will frame and show friends and family for generations.
A professional wedding photographer will help capture these magic moments on your special day. He knows what to capture, when and where to look for it. It is wise to give a photographer a list of must-have photos. Ensure you get a portrait for the bride, the groom, just-married couple, a photo for the bridal party and the one with the parents. Such photos need to be crisp clear for framing.
Wedding photographers should be a main feature in your budget. You should plan for a professional photographer as you plan for the rest of the wedding. A video/photographer takes about 8-10% of your wedding. Having a friend take photos could be cheaper but you will curse later as you go through the pictures and realize none is worth framing.
Before you contract a photographer for your wedding day, you can ask him to show you some past weddings and events that he has covered. This will help you decide and gain some confidence in them.
Having contracted a good photographer, enjoy your wedding day knowing your memories are being stored by a pro with every click. See the best Wedding photographers in Kenya here.
