Traditional Wedding Photographer [categories]

A Utah wedding photographer is not just any photographer who comes along to take some photographs; they should be able to connect in a friendly and confident manner, with the bride, groom, parents, grandparents and any children at the wedding and sometimes, the pet dog as well. The photographer should feel all the emotions and become a part of their day, by that I mean that they should understand the emotions of the people attending the wedding, after all, how else can the LDS wedding photographers capture these emotions on camera, if they don’t feel and understand them.

The romance, excitement and the final realisation of months, maybe even years, of planning for this one day and it’s the wedding photographer’s job to capture these emotions in a realistic yet, beautiful way. The bride and groom will be nervous, the parents hoping everything runs as smoothly as they have planned for and the kids, trying not to look too bored with all the fuss around them.

There are still some people who will not allow the religious ceremony to be photographed which is another reason I like to arrive early, to give myself the opportunity to chat with the minister, priest or official who will be conducting the ceremony and if possible, gain a little compromise, in such cases. A good wedding photographer will be aware of all the areas to consider for every occasion. Your LDS Utah wedding will be unique and your wedding photographs should also be unique.

I chose to specialist in all types of Utah wedding photography, initially because I didn’t have a photography studio however, while I run a photography business, I also get so much personal enjoyment from photographing weddings, and I wouldn’t have it any other way.

My approach to wedding photography is very relaxed; I prefer the wedding photojournalism approach, as most top wedding photographers do. My wedding portfolio is full of photographs of relaxed couples enjoying their wedding day and spending time with friends and family not, the photographer. These photographs are far more enjoyable to look at and also help to capture the wedding’s events as they unfold, naturally.

In short, wedding photography in Utah  is very much a specialized area and wedding photography should always be left to the professional. Weddings can’t be re-photographed in a photography studio. The photographer who chooses to photograph weddings, had better know exactly what he or she is doing and be able to get it right, every time. It’s a huge responsibility and requires a responsible wedding photographer.

I always get the question asked, what should I wear? So I thought I'd write an article to help those starting out in hopes that it will help you if the same questions are asked. Or if you are getting your pictures taken it may help you not have to ask... So here are a few of my ideas.

The biggest thing about photographing people is the relationship you have with each other. If anyone is uncomfortable it's going to show in the pictures so begin with building a relationship. If you are having your picture taken you need to feel comfortable in what you are wearing so choose wisely.

Think about layering your clothes. Contrast is key!

Wear something you love and feels good inside and out.

Dress up not down but be comfortable. You can choose to wear a T-Shirt but will you regret it in a few weeks?

If it's an engagement shoot don't try to match. Go with different shades and go with a complementary style.

Patterns are generally a no-no. Most shoots happen outdoors and if the photographer knows what they are doing they will pull textures from the background. It creates a business in the photo if you do both!

Darker colors are slimming and they really are easier to photograph. The lighter the colors the more light it attracts.

Wear shoes that make you feel good. Make sure you love them. Make sure they are comfortable and easy to walk in. If you absolutely need to bring the brand new heels you just bought bring extra shoes to walk in. It really is all about enjoying the time and being comfortable.

Dress for the season. If its freezing outside its tough to look warm and happy in shorts... But be comfortable in what you choose. You will reflect what you are feeling.

If you are bringing a child or a pet its best to have an extra person with you. It's important to have the ability to have someone watching the pet or child when you are being photographed with out them. Bring someone you trust. That way you can still smile relaxed and comfortable with out worry.

If you have anything that you want the photographer to avoid (tattoos, scars, etc.) its best to tell them before the shoot. Everyone has this idea that PhotoShop is the fix all but its more work then you think. So help the photographer before hand to know what you want and don't want.

I hope this helped.
