Picture Perfect Portraits
Every couple wants dreamy wedding portraits! Here are some tips for getting those picture perfect images on your big day. Sponsored by The Pros Weddings
1.) Hire a photographer whose style you love! Some photographers have a more formal style geared towards traditional posed portraits while others shoot documentary style, capturing candid moments as they happen. If you’re somewhere in the middle, a photojournalistic photographer may be the right fit for you. While they give some direction, they let the shots happen naturally, often having the couple walk, talk and laugh as they are shooting.
2.) Make sure you click with your photographer. It’s important for you to feel comfortable with the person who will be capturing so many intimate moments. At The Pros, we encourage you to have a one on one consultation with your photographer so you feel good about your choice. An engagement session is also a great way to build a rapport with your photographer. The key to getting great pics is being relaxed and confident in your professional.
3.) Shooting outdoors with natural light is always the best option. Nothing is better then nature as a backdrop. Take some time to scope out possible portrait spots at your location and keep in mind if it’s a sunny day, you’ll need to find some shade to shoot in to get the best images. If your venue doesn’t have many outdoor options or it’s a rainy day, have a back up plan for shooting indoors. If you’re not sure what the best option is, no worries! Our Pros are seasoned photographers and can scope out a picture perfect portrait spot at any venue!
