How to photograph your wedding veil

Wedding veil do I need one? In my opinion your wedding veil can be just the trick to pull stunning wedding images. Try for a veil which is long and graceful. Through the use of a very wide angle lens and with a little help from your brides maids, oh and the boys for that matter, we can usually achieve some stunning artistic shots. Morning Star Estate located on the Mornington Peninsula is one of my all time top wedding venues as it gives you some stunning opportunities for fine art wedding photography.

Wedding photography is something that you will probably now be thinking about. It's on that list and you've evidently been browsing through varying styles of wedding photography and will have some fairly firm ideas fixed into that bridal head of yours. Your wedding photography is going to be viewed on a daily basis... oh yes, a daily basis!

You are going to definitely be featured on the mantelpiece of your respective parent's for quite a while, not to mention others. Soon there's going to be quite a heavy amount of traffic viewing that wedding photography and you want to know that you like what they are going to see. So what is it that you'll need to consider about wedding photography and more importantly, choosing the right photographer. What are the questions that you'll need to ask him or her?

Wedding Photography : The Initial 7 Questions

  1. Are you available to do our wedding photography on the dates required.
  2. How far in advance would we need to make a decision about our wedding photography.
  3. What style of wedding photography can we ask for, ie, journalistic, traditional.
  4. Do you have a portfolio of your wedding photography that we can browse.
  5. Do you work in both digital and film... wedding photography is important, film will always be a little more “real” than digital.
  6. Can I have wedding photography references.
  7. How much is the wedding photography going to cost. Once you've chosen the person that you wish to use for your wedding photography, you'll need to be taking the task to the next level.

There are further wedding photography hurdles that you'll need to be considering:

Should I Meet My Wedding Photographer Beforehand?
And the answer to that question is a resounding YES! Albeit that you don't need to take up hours of your wedding photographer's time, you do need to meet him at least once.

How Will Our Wedding Photographer Be Dressed? It may sound a little trivial, yet, you don't want the wedding photographer to upstage the bride! He may love his jeans and Doc Martins but it's not going to look great with the rest of your chosen wedding theme.

What Background Would I Like For My Wedding Photography?
This question is often answered relatively naturally as it will depend entirely on your surroundings. However, sometimes, wedding photography isn't always that simple! If you choose an outdoor backdrop and it rains, have a backup plan. If your local church isn't pretty, think about the soft focus backdrop options.

Will My Photographer Provide Retouching & Corrections To The Wedding Photography?
You need to initially make sure that wedding photography retouching and corrections are possible, thereinafter, you need to establish that they're included in the cost. Wedding photography is a professional business and one that is vital in the proceedings. They are that beautiful “forever” keepsake that will remain on your mantelpiece for years to come, henceforth, it's important that it's right.
