When planning any wedding, there always seems to be a ton of moving parts. You try to prepare for every little thing as best you can, but there are simply some elements that must be somewhat left to chance, such as the elements themselves: the weather. Think about it, you’re going to start your planning pretty early, so how can you possibly know what to expect from the weather?
Obviously, if your entire celebration will be taking place indoors, it may not matter nearly as much to you as it would to couples planning outdoor affairs, but it can still put a damper on the day.
There are a lot of reasons to make drones a part of your wedding photography package, but like any other aspect of it, they’re not going to be free and make no mistake, there are a few minuses. So, how do you decide if you really need those amazing aerial shots?
Well, it helps to know the ins and outs of drones and what they bring to the table, so we decided to put our many years of experience in wedding photography in NY and NJ to work and created this little guide to drone wedding photography.
Most wedding photographers, at least those with any meaningful experience, have a good idea of all the major moments that need to be captured on a wedding day, whether it’s the first look, first dance, cake-cutting, etc.
However, that doesn’t mean that you should leave it all up to them as there are likely less obvious moments that you don’t want to miss capturing too. That’s where a must-have shot list comes into play, and for some ideas on what some of those must-have photos may be, check out these posts, The Major Must-Have Wedding Photos: Part 1 and Part 2.
We get it. When you’re in the process of planning your wedding, it doesn’t take much for it all to get a little overwhelming. There’s just always so much to figure out and to worry about getting right.
And while you can get away with a little overlooking or poor decision-making in certain aspects of the planning, finding the right wedding photographers is not a part of the process you want to take lightly nor get wrong. You’ll be the one left with a photo album full of low-quality pictures void of any personality.
We cannot overstate the importance of chemistry between you and your wedding photographers when it comes to getting the pictures you’ve been dreaming of for your wedding album. That’s why it’s so important to meet with them well before your big day and to look for the right things and ask the right questions when you do, and for more on that, check out this post, 6 Questions You Need to Ask Your NY and NJ Wedding Photography Options.
That’s also why scheduling an engagement photo session before your wedding can be so helpful. You’ll get to start building a relationship with your photographers and you’ll also start to get a feel for how they work, and the same goes for scheduling a bridal portrait session.
Yes, so much of getting great wedding photos comes down to the talent and experience of your photographers, but make no mistake, there are some things you can do on your end as well.
And as longtime NY and NJ wedding photographers who’ve worked with all kinds of couples, we know how they can help, and how they can hurt, the process. So, read on to learn about the ten commandments of getting great wedding photos.
At Michael and Jelena’s amazing reception, the best man remembered when his old friend first called to tell him about Jelena and said he needed to meet her, and when he did, he immediately understood what Mike saw in her. And after spending just the day with this pair, we can see what he means. The lovely couple said their “I do’s” in a wonderful church ceremony before taking the celebration to the Crystal Plaza in New Jersey, which made for the perfect backdrop for such a magical occasion. The Live Picture Studios videographers were there capturing every special moment for this wedding video, and from the couple’s reading of the cards they wrote to one another and first dance to all the heartfelt speeches from family and friends, there were so many. All of us here at LPS would like to thank Jelena and Michael for letting us be a part of it all and wish them nothing but the best. Congratulations you two!
