We had a great engagement shoot with this couple.
One of the things to look for when shopping for a wedding photographer to capture your special day or to trust them with this one of a life time event, is their ability as a photographer to shoot under all weather conditions. The wedding is a special day and the weather on the on hand is unpredictable and doesn’t really care if it is your special day or not. It will throw whatever conditions it feels like at you. Therefore, the photographer needs to be great at taking beautiful images on a sunny day say morning to evening, not just sunrise and sunset. You will hear most them talk about the golden hour and without a doubt you will get some lovely images at that time, but the wedding day schedule could not allow that. Some of the timetables will only allow that bridal photos be captured at high noon when we have the most terrible light which is up high and harsh casting shadows under the eyes etc. All these factors should not be a problem to a seasoned wedding photographer. The couple may decide to host their wedding outside on a beach and you pretty much have to capture their day in that type of sunlight and still produce images that are stunning.
What if it is a rainy day? Can they still capture the images? The couple might not mind to get wet and still get their nice romantic shots captured as it is their day and that’s the weather nature threw at them. Are they capable of taking this negative into a positive and still create stunning and memorable images that will be priceless over time? All these are things you would need to take into consideration.
