The only thing you want are beautiful pictures of your wedding day. Photos that tell the story of your wedding perfectly and everyone is beautiful (as (s)he is). As a wedding planner, the best tip I can give you is go for a professional wedding photographer. Someone who really made it his profession, already has a good portfolio, works with passion, has the best equipment and specializes in wedding photography. Hiring a professional photographer is a small investment that you enjoy all your life! Do not let the price be leading.
What is also very important is that you feel a click with your wedding photographer. Someone where you feel at ease and who can easily interact with your guests. This will provide a lot of rest on the day itself and it is also great fun.
Taking a short turn, you have two types of photography: Journalism and posed. Posed photography, often gives the more funny pictures, the photographer directs this. The photos are therefore less natural. A journalistic photographer tells the story of the wedding day through the photos. He / she will rarely say that you have to stand in a certain way. Although they often give directions during the photo shoot, however this is minimal and always that it seems and remains as natural as possible. And if something funny happens on the day itself, that journalistic photographer will capture that immediately!
In addition to these types of photography, each wedding photographer also has his own style. It is important to see if this fits with the style of you and your wedding. There are many different types of styles, from traditional, classic, industrial, romantic, fashion to funky, hip, modern, vintage, fine art and refreshing. There is a photographer for every bride and groom.
In addition to the 'traditional' photo report on your wedding day itself, there are also other possibilities. More and more bridal photographers offer besides their 'standard' package also other nice possibilities.
