The sometimes underestimated Wedding Photographer

Being a Pro Wedding Photographer requires having decent professional equipment (not necessarily the most expensive), the knowledge on how to use it under pressure on a day that will go with a crazy speed and no second chances to repeat any image… He/she/them, need to be skilled in various fields of photography:

1 – Photojournalistic Style; being capable to tell a story in pictures. Knowing what is important to show to really document that day, no nonsense images…

2 – Product Photography; shooting “details” are in some ways, shooting “products” without having 3 lights in a studio and doing it quickly, you don’t have all the time in the world to do it…  


3 – Portrait Photography; you need to use the light properly to illuminate the subject and guide the Bride and/or groups to pose to look their best. Brides, Grooms, guests, aren’t professional models, they are not familiar with posing, so in few minutes you have to capture them in a way they’d look natural, relaxed…

That’s why we say that sometimes the Wedding Photographer is underestimated, because it really requires expertise handling all those skills in a hectic journey…

Brides & Grooms: check thoughtfully all portfolios before booking !!!
