LIVE YOUR STYLE YOUTUBE HOST, SHARRAH STEVENS, DISCUSSES 8 TIPS TO FINDING WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER FOR YOU
8 TIPS TO HAVE THE BEST WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY
SHARRAH: Hey guys welcome back to live your style I’m sure and this is Susie. She is my wedding photographer. Well, we really are in sync.. Today’s video is a little bit different. The most because I wanted to take some time and give some future brides current brides anybody that’s interested in some really awesome valuable tips on how to pick your wedding photographer for the most beautiful, wonderful day of your life.
SHARRAH: Okay, so the very first thing that lovely Susie over here recommends when you guys are looking for your wedding photographer, is make sure you when you go into that first consultation with that person that you are communicating what’s important to you about your special day in photography, do you want to have those sweetheart moments, do you want to have all of your bridal party there, communicate those exact scenes that way your photographer knows what’s important and they know what to focus on because you only have a limited amount of time. Right?
SHARRAH: Make sure that you’re selecting someone that has the same type of style is what you’re looking for. So it’s really important to identify what you like about the style of photography and then find photos on that person’s website that they did that has that match style, to make sure that you’re going to love those images at the end of the day.
SUSIE: Get someone that you get along with someone that you are willing,
along with the coordinator and videographer are very important.
Identify your priority shots. Know what you want your photographer and videographer to highlight. And I say that together because they typically are shooting the same thing.
SHARRAH: I think some people really do want to focus on big families or, so it’s different for every writing groups, make sure that you communicate those priority shots and make sure that everyone’s on the same page. Simple is that!
SHARRAH: What is THE important thing that you wish every bride was able to give to you,
SUSIE: the scheduuuuuuule.
SHARRAH: The schedule, now why is the schedule important,
SUSIE: You could be using natural light,
SHARRAH: and which is what I “Love” Actually I’m a BIG natural light person
SUSIE: Include your photographer in making your schedule. It’s almost as important as important as including the coordinators
SHARRAH: …. planner coordinator, that makes sense. What you’ve shared with me for the engagement session is really important for us to look at the kind of shots we want to get for the engagement and make sure we have variety,
SUSIE: Right, that is very very true. There different locations you want to just adventure…. I feel like with engagement sessions this is a time when you’re able to be just completely candid and just to love on each other without the distraction of your wedding day. Yeah and everything that goes along with it.
SUSIE: You can make one Pinterest board, if you want, depending on the photographer, they will look at specific poses or angles anything that you wanted to incorporate, and they’ll do their own take on it,
SHARRAH: But it is really helpful for the bride for me I’m terrible at describing or communicating with words the type of style of photography that I like I’m much more visual, so I’d rather say hey I like this and rather than saying, I like that one post where you know the arms around here and that just would get very confusing and to me I’m not very good at
UNPLUGGED WEDDING weddings or weddings, where you ask your guests, not to have their phones out filming, or snapping or taking photos, don’t ask Marge to have her big phone case open and flailing in the wind in the middle of the aisle, because it makes it very hard for you,
SUSIE: Is iT distracting to your guests or distracting to you.
SHARRAH: What’s the best way to communicate that because I was I think we’ll do an unplugged wedding but I was a little worried about it because I didn’t want to be rude and be like, Please keep your phones, it’s not like it’s a movie theater. Right.
SUSIE: Yeah, kind of have to go that way.
SHARRAH: What if you put it on there seats.
SUSIE: Um, yeah. That’s a great idea. okay user ID. Okay, so she’s gonna be a coordinator now.
SHARRAH: What am I missing put a little picture or of the you in the couple and say we’ll be sure to send or maybe, maybe they put their email on the piece of paper and drop it in a box somewhere and then they’ll get photos to them because everyone wants photos. That’s a great idea. That way they don’t feel like they missed out. Alright guys they’re eight wonderful tips just there for you guys I will write them all below in case you guys wanted to refer back to them and read them real quick, in the drop down box below.

HAVEN’T FOUND A PHOTOGRAPHER???
Take A Test Drive
You wouldn’t purchase a car without taking a test drive. Why would you buy wedding photography without having an engagement session.
If the only thing you got from the experience was:
Learn how to pose for your body type…BEFORE the wedding
Chance audition and maybe book you your photographer
Get more comfortable in front of the camera before the wedding…
Get Amazing candid pictures to hang in your home and share on social…
Just one of those would be a great reason to schedule an engagement session but with the LightMaster Studios experience you get them all and more!
Book An Engagement Session
HERE YOUR CHANCE!!!
