by Sarah Young I have a business on photography.

Your wedding day is undoubtedly one of the most important days of your life and you would like to capture each and every special moment of it forever. Photography takes on a new meaning on that day as you would like each snap to be perfect and for this to happen you must choose professional photographers instead of leaving it to amateurs or enthusiastic family members. As the saying goes, ‘a photograph can speak a thousand words’ and you would wish every moment of that special day to be preserved for posterity. Do your selection from top wedding photographers, from people who know how to capture the essence of a wedding with all its laughter and its tears as these snaps are going to be the concrete reminder of your wonderful day. 

The best wedding photographers always take a mixture of photographs; they capture both spontaneous moments as well as take plenty of posed pictures. Go through the portfolio of a few chosen photographers to see whose style of work you like the most. The pictures should range from candid and classic to relaxed and spontaneous. The aim of the top wedding photographer is to ensure that the day remains ‘yours’ and to this extent he will take pictures quickly and calmly and will always be at hand tounobtrusively capture those special moments.


Top wedding photographers always like some background knowledge about the family so that they know which moments to capture the best and also how to herd various family members for group pictures. For this purpose, they will usually ask for a liaison person from the wedding party to get together various family members to pose for pictures. They also know how to use the surroundings to their advantage as backdrops for pictures. A candle-light wedding will require the proper camera equipment for correct exposure to the dim lighting whereas a beach wedding will necessitate a different type of equipment to take the best pictures. They will also have backup equipment as it is not unknown to have a camera go down occasionally. If the photographer does not have backup equipment and the main camera goes down your entire wedding day can get ruined. Professional photographers therefore make it a point to carry at least one backup unit similar to their main camera.


For a wedding photo album to turn out interesting it is important to have various kinds of pictures. From formal, posed photos to casual, candid photos, the aim of the quality photographer will be to tell a story through pictures. Some creative shots like those of magazine covers may also be thrown in to add an artistic angle to the wedding album.


Top wedding photographers know that the wedding day is ‘your’ day and nothing should detract attention from that. They will ensure that they try to fit in as a ‘guest’ rather than as an outsider and they will seek to capture some of the most beautiful moments of your life unobtrusively.
