Planning your wedding can turn out to be hectic. But in the midst of all these, there are things you should you never forget; one of them being the key questions that you should ask your Edinburgh wedding photographer. Lucky for you, this post has prepared a list of questions you can ask your photographer in preparing for your big day.
How many photos should you get?
Once you have made the choice of a photographer, you can begin getting easy and ask as many questions as possible. One of these would be the number of photos you should expect to have after all is said and done. In every hour, a good photographer will take around 50 to 100 photos. The number of photos you will end up with will come down to the hours of coverage. Hundreds of photos may seem much, but you will get those small moments you would have missed.
What can I do to look good in my wedding photos?
Many couples are always apprehensive of how they will look in their wedding day photos. They want to look the best, but they do not know how. Your photographer will tell you all that you need to do is relax and breathe. Take it easy with every moment, enjoy your time and leave the expert to do their own. It will take you by surprise that you will be good looking in every single photo.
What is “shoot and burn”?
If you have interacted with wedding photographers before, the phrase “shoot and burn” must sound familiar. If not, you must be wondering what it means. This is a cheap process that involves taking photos and directly burning them into a CD. They are not processed, and you end up getting a poorly done job. If someone is planning to do this with your wedding photos, you better and find someone else.
Should you do a first look?
Many couples prefer to have a private moment right before going public. This is important because all jitters will be gone when they show up to the public eye. They can dress up and get a few photos to preview how they will look. Ensure that your photographer will guarantee you a first look and explain to you what is expected from your end.
How long will it take to get your photos ready after your wedding?
This is a question you should ask your photographer even before the big day comes. Of course, your photos will be edited and processed before they are ready. It could take a day, two or even a week. Whatever timeline is provided should work with your plans. You should also make your suggestions and see if you could speed up things as long as it does not affect the quality of the final work.
Choosing your Edinburgh photographer should no longer be the dreaded hassle everyone is telling you about. It can be as easy as counting 123. Now that you know the right questions and the due process, you can now rest easy and wait for your big day with confidence.
