Trust is the key ingredient to any relationship and this is true for the relationship you have with your wedding photographer. There’s a reason you chose them to capture the most important day of your life. While you may have a vision of how you want some of your images to turn out, for the most part, you are going to have to put a lot of trust in your photographer. Trusting your photographer a little more in these main areas will not only result in better images for you to remember your big day by but will also relieve you of some stress as well.

1. Choosing the Location of the Shot

You wedding photographer will have taken the time to familiarize themselves with your reception location or areas around your ceremony site to find the best places to photograph. They’ll know where gets the best light and where the best scenery is.

2. Time of Day to Shoot

Lighting is key to creating beautiful images and using the natural light of the sun will produce the best lighting setting but that doesn’t mean any time of the day will give you the same results. Your photographer will know what time of day will be best to take those gorgeous outdoor shots that won’t leave harsh shadows on your face or when to sneak outside to take some night inspired shots.

3. Poses

Trust your photographer to know what pose is the most flattering for you. They can see how the light is illuminating you and what is in the background. Let your photographer take the lead with photos especially when it comes to posing; I promise that they aren’t trying to be rude when they shoot down some of your ideas. They are using their understanding of light and angles to get you the best pictures possible and have a reason behind why they are doing what they are doing. Most times you’ll be working with limited time and light and you don’t want to waste much of either on your big day.

4. Editing Your Photos

Trust your photographer’s creative eye during the editing process. They will know which images will look best in black and white, color, cropped and which ones to add special effects to, if any. The editing is one of the biggest reason you choose who you choose. Trust them to use their skills and style to make each image stunning.

5. Handling Printing Your Photos

Your photographer understands the process of getting prints from the where to the how. Most likely they have a long-term relationship with a reputable printing company. The worst thing you can do is have a stunning image, order a large print and find the colors are off, the image is blurred or it simply looks dull. The knowledge and experience that your photographer has is part of the package so you can rest easy trusting your photographer to have an understanding of the where, what, when, and how. Trust them and listen to what they think will look best for what you want.
