3 surprising things that will hurt your wedding photos

As a professional wedding photographer, I have your back. We are a team, we are a family. Your experience and enjoyment of your wedding day are my highest priority; everything that happens on a wedding day can (and will! ) affect the quality of your wedding photos. When you think about your future wedding day many of the influencing factors are obvious: Choice of Dress, Choice of Venue, Color of flowers… But there are many items that can have a surprisingly negative affect on your wedding photos. Below are my top 3 tips for getting the best wedding photos possible.

Ceremony Time & Location

Your choice of ceremony time and location will affect your ceremony experience and the quality of your wedding ceremony photos. Do you want the sun in your eyes while you say your vows? How about your guests, what if they are baking in the sun while you enjoy the shade? Sun and Shade extremes can create a bad experience and create poor wedding photos. The best way to avoid this is to consider variables such as sunset time, first look options, cocktail hour considerations and length of family formals. For my brides, I have a fantastic iphone app I love to use, that will factor in time of year and the shadows from nearby buildings. How COOL is that? Sometimes I just love technology!

Vendor Choices

Your choice of vendors is more important to your wedding photos than you think. After hundreds of weddings, I have seen wilted flowers, bad fitting suits, late vendors, boring DJ’s and worse. (trust me bad vendors can make your day miserable!) When I make vendor recommendations to Foskett Creative Brides, it’s to avoid any potential problems. I provide my brides a recommended vendor list that only includes vendors that I trust. I want you to have the most beautiful flowers and the best fitting suits! Great details create great photos and thats a win, win for both of us!

Wedding Day timeline

A great wedding day timeline creates an environment for great photos. If you only allow 10 minutes for details and 10 minutes for portraits, you have limited the creativity of your wedding photographer. The best way to avoid this problem is to work together on a wedding day photography timeline. Overlooked factors that I like to include are not enough travel time, scheduling breaks and meals for the bridal party and leaving LOTS of cushion for unexpected delays. Remember, I have done this hundreds of times and I have seen just about every thing that can (and will) go wrong!

Remember, wedding photography is an art form that is both challenging and rewarding. I love what I do and I love seeing my couples have a fantastic time. Isn’t that what a wedding celebration is all about?
