Finding a photographer for your once in a lifetime event can be a daunting, downright scary task. After all, there can be no do-overs for every fleeting, precious moment of the day. Should you get two photographers? Do they consistently generate high quality images? Should you have a shot list ready, or is it better to leave your visuals to chance? Do you have friends who are offering to shoot your ceremony on their brand new iPhones? And as to the ceremony itself, should you have a connected, or a disconnected one?
There is no right or wrong way to conduct a wedding, as all of the decisions and choices arise from your personal preferences, however, it is very important to communicate them to your photographer.
Not unlike a writer with a distinctive voice, each photographer will have a unique style, an approach, that can impact the overall tone and look of the shoot. It is always a good idea to have them shoot a short portrait or engagement session with you first. Your level of comfort during the test session, and the resultant images, will help you determine a way forward.
We are attracted to photography, partially, for the ease with which it crosses over into the world of art. To catch a glimpse of the art in everyday surroundings, the photographer must remain the observer of the event, rather than the choreographer of it; he must remain on the sidelines, seeing, capturing the interplay of light and shadow, preserving the inner truth of each moment. Black and white medium holds a special significance to us, as it almost succeeds in conveying an evocative, romantic feel of the decades past, when the summers were milder, the days – longer, the lines – simpler.
