Trust is the key ingredient to any relationship, especially the relationship you have with your wedding photographer. While you may have a vision of how you want some of your images to turn out, you will have to trust your photographer to get the job done. Relying on your photographer a little more in these main areas will not only result in better images for you to remember your big day. It will also relieve you of some stress as well. Here are 5 things you should trust your wedding photographer with. You chose them to capture the most important day of your life.

1. Choosing the Location of the Shot

First, your wedding photographer will have taken the time to familiarize themselves with your venue or areas around your ceremony site. When choosing the location of the shot, they will find the best places to photograph. They’ll know where gets the best light and where the best scenery is. 

2. Time of Day to Shoot

Lighting is key to creating beautiful images. Using the natural light of the sun will produce the best lighting setting. But that doesn’t mean any time of the day will give you the same results. Your photographer will know what time of day to shoot. Such as when it will be best to take those gorgeous outdoor shots that won’t leave harsh shadows on your face. They’ll even know when to sneak outside to take some night-inspired photos.

3. Poses

Trust your photographer to know what pose is the most flattering for you. They can see how the light is illuminating you and what is in the background. Some photographers will take into consideration your picture ideas and inspiration. Some photographers may reject some of the ideas, as they may not be the most flattering. Most times, you’ll be working with limited time and light, so you don’t want to waste much of either on your big day.

4. Editing Your Photos

Trust your photographer’s creative eye during the editing process. They will know which images will look best in black and white, color, cropped, and which ones to add special effects too if any. Part of the editing process is a part of their style, which is one reason you hired them. Trust them to use their skills to make each image stunning.

5. Handling Printing Your Photos

Lastly, your photographer knows where to get prints made and probably has a long-term relationship with a reputable printing lab. The worst thing you can do is have a stunning image, order a large photo and find the colors are off, the picture is blurred, or it simply doesn’t look exciting. Knowing where to get your prints made, what size, and which ones will look best in your albums, wall art, or thank you cards is part of the package you get when you hire a professional photographer. Trust them and listen to what they think will look best for what you want.
