Good wedding photography tips shared by top wedding photographer singapore

THIS RUINED our WEDDING photographs!

1. Choosing a “Side Hustle” (SH) Photographer

Whether he is a friend who takes amazing selfies, or someone who is in the artistic line of work in a 9-5 job, it can be easy (and cheaper!) to hire a photographer who can “shoot your wedding photos in his free time”. One thing to note when hiring an SH, is that, their full-time job comes first, and since you’re only an “add-on”, know if you’re providing the SH’s side income, you will most likely be his side priority! There might be last-minute cancellations of shoots, delay in the editing process “cause work came up”.

2. Hiring the “new guy on the block”

Sometimes, a great wedding photographer with pops up, with only several months of experience and a few gorgeous photos. While his small collection might be hipster, it’s important to see if he is able produce a consistent series with various different types of couples shot in different settings (e.g. outdoor and indoor setting, bright and dim lighting, fun and formal poses).

3. Never meeting your photographer (online)

While it was important for couples to meet their photographer at least once, face-to-face, technology and apps like WhatsApp Video Calls, FaceTime and Skype now gives you the opportunity to contact and chat with your photographer online, anytime. These online meetups are so important to gauge the personality of your photographer, and if you click without the traffic jams!
