The documentaries have a lot of experience, and they have happened to see a lot in their lives. By virtue of their professional responsibilities, they are able to know the other vendors. They have a better network, and if you are stuck, then you can rely on their help. Establish contact with the best vendors by obtaining suggestions from specialists.

What To Look For In Your Wedding Photographer?

Did you settle on your wedding date? Then among the countless things you need to take care of, one of the aspects you will be required to do is to get in touch with a professional photographer. The snaps will tell the story of your big day time and again.

Highlighting some of the tips

You must have realized the importance of hiring a specialist for capturing the momentous day of your life. Revive the romance anew by taking a look at the shots of Hereford Wedding Photographer. While making a decision, you have to keep the artistic style and professional skills in mind. 

  1. Variety of styles

It is a sensible idea to take a look at the portfolio of the cameraman. An efficient cameraman is in a position to provide a wide range of styles. With these styles, the personalities of the bride and groom are captured, and the essence of their happiness is etched in these snaps forever. You should be able to clearly convey the style you are looking for and then check if the expert can provide you the desired outcome. Hereford Wedding Photographer will capture the emotions of your special day.

  • Picture quality

Ensure that you run a check on all their pictures and not just the ones that they have handpicked for their online gallery. This step on your part will help you to get a fair description of their image quality. Irrespective of whether you are searching for an expert excelling in an informal style or someone with a contemporary technique, you should do detailed homework and shop around accordingly.

  • Friendly attitude

It is essential to have a good rapport with your lens man. As a couple, you will be placing all your trust and faith in the cameraman. It is vital that you feel relaxed in his company. Make sure that you feel a connection with him; otherwise, your discomfort will become apparent in the pictures. If the specialist is approachable, then the guests will also be at ease, and this will reflect on the images shot.

  • Years of experience 

It is of utmost importance to choose a specialist who can handle his job even in challenging situations. He should have the ability to cope with the constant pressure so that treasured moments are not missed. It is a prudent idea to get in touch with a specialist who has some prior experience in dealing with the wedding venue. Otherwise, he should take time out to explore the location beforehand. 

Think intelligently

Getting hold of a competent photographer requires intensive research on the internet. You should also keep the pricing structure in mind. However, it would help if you did not make your decision based on the price factor alone. It would be best if you never compromised on the quality of pictures. Make sure that the specialist you plan to hire has a solid reputation in the industry. You may even want to get in touch with some of his past clients. Talk to them to know about their experience. 

RULE OF THIRDS

Posted on February 11, 2020 by Admin under Uncategorized

THE RULE OF THIRDS
The rule of thirds is one of the first principles of composition that most photographers come across as they learn about photography. The basic principle is very simple—that you can make a more pleasing composition by placing the main point (or points) of interest one third of way in from the top or bottom and from either side of the image. An easy way to visualize this is to imagine a grid superimposed on the image. The grid divides the frame into thirds both horizontally and vertically. The four points where the lines of the grid intersect are said to be the ideal locations to place the main point of interest of the photo.
The model, Hayley, is placed more or less on one of the intersections of the grid. In theory, this creates a better composition than placing her in the centre, or close to the edge of the frame.
But in order to learn more about composition, and move beyond the rule of thirds and take better photos, we need to first understand what the rule of thirds is telling us to do.
Another place you’ll see the rule of thirds come into play is with landscape photography. The general advice is to place the horizon on one of the thirds so that you end up with one-third sky and two-thirds land (or the other way around).
The same advice also applies to portraits. The general wisdom is that you should place the eyes of your subject as close to the intersection of thirds as possible.

________________________________________
Does this mean that you should compose your photos according to the rule of thirds all the time? No it doesn’t. You should think of the rule of thirds as the “guideline” of thirds—a suggestion as to where you should place the subject. Sometimes it’s the best place for your subject, and sometimes it isn’t. The challenge is learning some of the other principles of composition that help you decide when to go with the rule of thirds and when to ignore it.
I’ll finish this section with a final thought on the rule of thirds from fine art photographer Cole Thompson, quoting his version of the rule:
A great image is comprised of 1/3 vision, 1/3 the shot and 1/3 processing.

SAVING MONEY ON YOUR WEDDING

Posted on February 6, 2020 by Admin under Uncategorized

1; Make sure you have a budget in place before you start

2; have estimates on your budget sheet to help ,give you an idea of costs

  1. Work with percentages so that you can calculate exactly how much of your total budget is going where
  2. Put someone in charge of handling and managing your budget especially if your not great at money management.
  3. Keep your budget sheet up to date so you know what has been spent and what is left
  4. Dont overspend as you might end up having to take out a loan to pay your suppliers

Save money on wedding flowers

Flowers will take up a large part of your Budget and what will happen to them at the end of the day

Bridal Bouquet Start with your bouquet does it have to be the most elaborate. Your guest have come to see you not your flowers.

Centerpieces the next most costly expenses Do you need them if you do choose flowers and greenery that is in season Start of minimalist and just put the odd expensive flower hear and there.

Flower arrangements to get that absolutely pristine arrangement is going to cost a fortune bearing in mind most of the pictures you see are staged for the camera and not real weddings. this is a DIY area where you can really save money

Lats Get back to money saving tips

  1. Large flowers take up more space so you will need less of them, I have seen a wedding done completely using sun flowers
  2. Buy direct from the flower market, for if you buy from the florist they would have already put there mark up on.
  3. Raid you Loved one’s garden for plants. such as greenery and the odd branch and succulents.
  4. Go on the cheap and opt for less in your Bouquet, the Bridesmaid Bouquets and table decorations.
  5. Consider using paper flowers or homemade and paper is recyclable. Bride and bridesmaid evening in
  6. To go for the more natural look make the wedding go for more greenery and eucalyptus. Be sure to check prices as this is where they will start to run away
  7. choose flowers that are in season
  8. Don’t use trendy or mainstream flowers for your wedding because wedding trends tends to push up the price before you start, do some research and then avoid these flowers
  9. Be very specific with your numbers when buying flowers because any left over is money wasted.

Groom and Groomsmen attire

Posted on December 26, 2019 by Admin under Uncategorized

Unless you want the groom to wear a particular colour or style its best left to him to decide

Groom Suit

Like your fitting with the dress the groom might also have to have fittings and adjustments made. If it doesn’t fit properly it will show in the photos later.

Groomsmen Suits

The suite of the groomsmen normally looks different than the groom, You can choose to have slight variations with them. For example they wear different ties. Or They dont have a waistcoat to save cost and the Groom does.

Other Bridal party members

The groomsmen suite should all match. Otherwise it is hard to tell who is the groom in the picture years later.

If they are struggling to choose step in and tell them which one you would like them to wear

Wedding Day Traditions

Toasts and speeches

Make sure to ask those who you would like to speak at your wedding at least a month before the wedding to them them time to prepare, because some people find it very difficult to speech in public.

Give them guideline of what you want them to say and what to leave out. They should also keep it short and sweet.

Some couple do the speeches between courses at the wedding Breakfast and others leave it until the end Just make sure everybody including photographer and wedding co-ordinaters know.

Again let photographers know in advance if anybody and who they are will be doing a reading at the wedding ceremony

OUTFITS AND ATTIRE

Going wedding dress shopping can seam like a challenging task, having search the internet for the type of wedding dress that you want take a picture of it with you when you go to the bridal boutique

A good quality wedding dress will allow for multiple adjustments without falling apart. Cheap fabric will disappoint you when it comes to comfort and adjustments.

Always make sure you use a professional seamstress to make the adjustments, dont just use the lady down the road because she’s cheap, your bridal boutique would be able to help you on this.

Your Veil and headpiece should be purchased after the dress for you dont want a veil that will hide the exquisite detail on the back of the dress.

Bridal shoes.

When purchasing your shoes do you rely want them with 6 inch heals. If you are wearing a long dress sweeping the floor you might be more comfortable wearing a simple white pair of shoes. No one is going to see them.Bear in mind you will be wearing them for up to 12 hours.

Garter and Lingerie

This is something that is very personal to you. so when you go shopping for these items do you really need to take the bridesmaids with you. just ensure that the garter is not to tight that it cuts the blood flow off to your leg and also make sure it doesn’t slide down when you are walking or dancing. As with your lingerie make sure it is comfortable and doesn’t show under your dress, remember it is personal to you.

many couple’s don’t consummate their wedding on the evening of the day. So pack your lingerie away for when you have your special evening together.

Bridesmaids Dresses

Each Bride will have her own vision of how she wants to dress her bridesmaids, you could dress them all identical, or you could go for a style of dress but in different colours your choices are endless.

Flower Girl or Girls

This is much easier as little girls like to be princesses so let her choose a dress that will make her feel like a princess for the day.

Tips for bridal wear and attire

  • It is perfectly OK to fall in love with the first dress you try o n
  • Don’t visit 20 boutiques and try on 80 dresses keep to 2-3 boutiques
