The wedding photographer is not inhuman as he or she is prone to certain human peculiarities such as fatigue, being overwhelmed, stress etc. For the purpose of your wedding pictures, it would be wise to offer as much help as possible. The following are instances where a little help never goes amiss:
As you conclude the photography arrangements between you and Edinburgh wedding photographer Simon Grossett, it is important that he is informed of the events of the day and the approximate time at which they will be taking place. This is due to the fact that if you want your photographer at the ready to capture every important moment from the bouquet throw, first dance, best man’s speech and so on, he or she needs to know the approximate time they would be occurring.
The event guide in this case could be a family member, a member of the bridal party, close friend, wedding coordinator or at least someone who knows the other guests in the wedding and is familiar with the wedding venue. This person would be able to point out to the photographer the right individuals meant to be featured in group pictures of family and friends. As the to-be wedded couple, it is not surprising to find that you have other things taking up your time and you also have to be at the centre of the wedding activities so the task of guide should be given to someone that is quick and efficient.
Guests and Guest photography
There are photographers who are content or have no problem with the guests taking a few pictures of their own. But for professional photographers, time is not something that is available as you have to keep in mind the fact that there are other events waiting to happen and you cannot let the enthusiasm of the guests infringe on the schedule of things. Having gone through the trouble of hiring a professional photographer, it would not be fair that their full use is not utilised due to the overabundance of guest photography. If possible try to limit this especially in the vital moments of the wedding.
Handling of Disturbances
For a wedding that requires the smooth operation of certain factor for it to function effectively and be considered a success, there are a handful of factors that can disrupt this with one of them being the wedding guests. When it comes to the guests, there are situations where they may fail to be cooperative with the wedding photographer and be extremely rude all in the quest to have their own way in things. Regardless of what the wedding photographer says, these individuals persist in their behaviour so it would be wise to have a strong personality or someone who has clout or close ties with them try to reason with them and handle the situation. The wedding day is meant to be fun filled and not a worry fest due to the activities of certain individuals.
