Getting married is an amazing experience. It is a day filled with emotion, joy, happiness and sometimes a little sadness when a family member or friend who is no longer with us is not there to share our special day.

You need to use the best available products for your wedding make up. Sub standard products may blotch your skin and result in patchy pictures. Every bride hopes to sport clear, bright skin during her wedding.

I cannot impress upon you just how important the negatives are. Always check wit the photographer about the best option concerning the negatives. Some photographers know how to store your negatives for you so that they will survive the ravages of time. They will store them for you until they are needed but even this is a gamble. What happens if the photographer passes away or if there is a fire? Will your negatives be taken care of once you entrust them to the photography studio? Sometimes it is best to take these yourself. If you decide to keep the negative, consult with more than one professional as to how to preserve them and keep them safe. It might be better to keep them somewhere fireproof. If you lose your photos due to fire, the only way to get them back is with the negatives.

What are the characteristics that a good siena wedding photographer should posses? How do you know when someone is worth the money? Are they really as skilled as they claim? Will they photograph the same boring angles as every other photographer or will they be creative and inventive?

First, to calm the bride. You have a real advantage. This is because there’s something really wrong – and that’s something you probably will not be anything remotely high. Maybe the flowers are not ‘exactly’ what you had in mind. Maybe there is not a place card in one of your guests. Maybe your dress rubbed against something, and there is little sign. Maybe one of your family members is always annoying, surprise surprise, being annoying. Maybe after five days of sunshine in a row, it’s pouring rain. And so on… But you calm the bride, so you roll with the punches, more attuned to the bigger picture – And it’s true, you’re marrying the love of his life. So, you take it all at ease and enjoy your special day.

It is a simple fact of life that with the arrival of digital cameras, many people now call themselves a “photographer”. Over recent years there has been an explosion of people offering their services as wedding photographers, many of who have never received any training, have no insurance, do not use professional equipment and do not have sufficient backups in place to cater for any eventuality.

To begin, create a checklist, you should understand what the bride and groom are looking for. What type of photos they want – formal, color, black and white mix?? Any particular shots they want. Help them with this decision, if possible, show them what you have done before the samples.
