The wedding is coming up and there are a million things zipping through your mind. Have you finalized the guest list and sent out wedding invitations? Do you have the perfect caterer? Have you picked the right bridesmaid dresses? The list just goes on and on, but don’t forget about the wedding photography! Your wedding photos will serve as evidence of the day you stand at the altar, looking into the eyes of your spouse while proclaiming, “I do.”

Hiring a good photographer is a definite must, but that’s not all. If you want fantastic photos, you’ll need to give your photographer good things to work with. Here’s how to ensure that you get the best photos out of your big day.

Hire A Professional Photographer… Or Two

Some couples would rather splurge on the venue and the food than invest in experienced photographers, so the task of photographing these moments are unofficially assigned to their friends and relatives with point-and-shoot cameras and mobile phones. Bad choice.

Having only one professional photographer at the wedding places a lot of pressure on the photographer, so it’s always best to have at least 2 photographers to cover the entire wedding, from the important moments to your candid expressions. More photographers equal a wider variety of photos too!

Clean Your House

Brides are usually so caught up with the miniscule details of the big day that the tidiness of the house often gets shoved at the bottom of the grand list of Things To Do. When the wedding photographers arrive in the morning to photograph you getting ready, it’s not their job to declutter your room. They’re already tasked with the responsibility of photographing you at your best, so now it’s your job to ensure your house looks its best to avoid messy backdrops in your photos. Hire professional cleaners from Gawin.ph at reasonable rates to clean your place the day before the wedding.

Last but not least, when it comes to your hair and makeup, do not settle for anyone but a professional. A true professional will know what colors and styles suit your features and face shape, how to fix your brows or frame the color of your eyes, and how not to use certain products so you won’t get that unattractive “ghostly effect” in the presence of flash photography.
