5 Things You Can do to Help Your Wedding Photographer Capture Your Wedding in an Amazing Way!

KS Studios

At KS Studios, we know that the excitement of your wedding day will be over before you know it. Fortunately, your wedding album will serve as a lasting reminder of the beautiful moments of this special day. A professional photographer understands how special this day is, and will be able to capture it beautifully in his/her pictures. Nevertheless, there are few things that you can do too, to help your photographer do an even-better job.

Best for Bride, Canada’s premier bridal destination, has the following tips for prospective brides and grooms to ensure their wedding photographs are as good as they can possibly be.

1. Discuss your must-haves in advance.
You may have certain expectations for how your photos should look or what it should include. Don’t assume that your photographer will naturally know this. Discuss all relevant details in advance and he/she can make sure he/she captures it. You can make a shoot list of must-haves, so nothing important is overlooked.

 2. Tell him/her about the special little-things.
Your album will appeal more to you, when it includes the special little things that you are fond of. This could be details like a special feature on your wedding dress, an heirloom that you wear on the day or special moments like your parents’ expression when they see you in your wedding dress. Tell your photographer what you are particularly fond of, so he/she can capture these personal things.

 3. Assign a bridesmaid or groomsman to assist with group shots.
Although you can give your photographer a list of who should be in which pictures, gathering them may not be an easy task for him/her unless he/she knows who they are. Choose a bridesmaid or groomsman who is familiar with the guests at your wedding, to help him/her with this. They can help him/her identify who is who, and gather the right people for each photograph, so the sessions progress smoothly.

4. Plan a relaxed schedule for your photos
Your wedding day will be a frenzy of activity. Nevertheless, plan it well so you have enough time for your photos. You should be able to relax and enjoy each photo session, so it turns out well. Discuss with your photographer and come up with a realistic plan for the number of shot locations and how much time will be required for each set of pictures. Plan your day accordingly.

5. Prepare in advance
Prepare for your wedding day photography by practicing your poses in front of a mirror. Although many of your pictures will not be posed, you can plan for ones that will be. Practice smiling, so it looks natural in front of the camera. Identify your best poses and practice them, so you can automatically default to position during your photo shoot. Booking an engagement photo session can also really help with preparing for those intimate and candid moments on the big day!

Ashley & Evan

Engagement sessions have always been very exciting for me because no two couples are alike during a photoshoot – it i a new adventure every time. With Ashley and Evan, it was as if we had known each other forever! I had such an amazing time taking photographs of these two and today I would lke to share some of my work with all of you.

Our photoshoot started at the high school where Ashley and Evan first met. It was such a windy day! Ashley had gotten her hair done specifically for this session and we were so worried about the wind blowing it everywhere. Luckily, however, we were able to get some sentimental shots that were not affected by the wind.

After the school, we headed over to a beautiful street location to do some photos with the fall leaves. This street, I found out while we were shooting, was actually Evan’s grandparents’ street. In talking about that, Evan had suggested that we could look at his grandparents’ property for some potential spots to shoot and in doing so, we found a little forest of beautiful trees that had all turned a vibrant yellow.

Simply perfect!

Our next stop for photographs was by a lake. This lake was near where Ashley and Evan had lived, once upon a time,and it was a place where they both spent a lot of time together. The sky was so beautiful and the sun peaked through just enough to highlight some of Ashley and Evan’s special little moments

The final spot that Ashley and Evan chose for their engagement photography was a trail area called 99 Steps. It was a forest full of beautiful fall colours and A LOT of leaves! After doing so many photos, it was time to have a little fun and relax – who said photoshoots weren’t allowed to be fun?

The two lovebirds had a full on leaf-ball fight, and let me tell you, no one held back!
No hard feelings were left as they ended with a hug.

After some walking around and climbing down 99 steps, we got some more beautiful photo – if only we could post them all!

Of course, we can’t forget the ring! Unfortunately, we didn’t forget to take a picture of the ring but we did forget the ring, inside the crack of a tall tree. After Ashley realized her finger was bare, there was a rush back with panic but luckily, the ring was still there. Note to self, DON’T LET YOUR CLIENT FORGET THE RING!

After 99 steps, we were supposed to be done, however, Evan asked me if I had any other ideas. Consequently, on my way too meet Ashley and Evan, I saw this gorgeous corn field on the side of the road and I thought “Oh if only I could take them there.” So, with that, Evan opened the door for me to offer! Ashley and Evan were very excited to try it out and it ended up being worth every second.

As a photographer, it easy to tell when two people are truly, madly in love, and, with Ashley and Evan, it was quite clear that they were!

We ended the shoot with a “We did it!” photo that just seemed to tie it all together.

This engagement session with Ashley and Evan was a lot of fun and we all enjoyed ourselves from beginning to end. It is extremely important that you pick a photographer that you get along with and it is just as important that we, the photographers, pick clients who we enjoy working with.

Thank you Ashley and Evan for being such good sports and for allowing me to capture your special memories together. Congratulations again on your engagement – I can’t wait to shoot your wedding day!
