Being Wedding Photographers we even got to meet some of the brides who have been dreaming about the special day since their childhood when they started playing with their dolls and why not! It is absolutely ok to want the best. It is true that sometimes going through some bridal magazines can be a little helpful. However, at the same time it can make you start worrying about whether you’ll manage to get the exact same portraits. Well, don’t worry pretty ladies! Your wait is over. We are here with the greatest possible solutions for all your problems.
So we are glad to share with you our secret tips which would certainly help all the lovely brides and couples out there.
Choose lighting according to the venue and decor
We won’t be lying at all if we say that a perfect lighting can take a simple photograph to another level. Most Bengali weddings start in the night at about 8-9p.m and continue till the morning hours. It’s very important to make it clear to your photographer as well as your wedding planner exactly what do you want. So we suggest you to take out some time from your busy schedule and fix an appointment with both your photographer and wedding planner to have a discussion about your ideas. Let them know how exactly you want the indoor and outdoor lightings to be. Tell them about your preferences, your likes and dislikes. Like whether you’d prefer yellow fairy lights for a bright and happy vibe or you’d choose blue fairy lights over yellow to get a dreamy vibe. They should have the detailed list of all the events mentioning which one is taking place at the day and which one is happening during the night. They need to know these in order to plan the lighting and decor accordingly. They can also give you better suggestions if needed and guide you about the settings and your pose as well. You can also choose disco lights for your bachelorette party as we think that it would really help you to get some cool portraits with your girl gang.
Hire a photographer who understands you
Choosing the right photographer is one of the most important steps that can lead you towards your dream of getting perfect portraits. Looking for just an amazingly talented photographer might not work. If he does n’t understand your vision. Moreover, if you guys don’t get along well you won’t really manage to make good pictures. The photographer needs to understand the taste and preferences of you and your partner. Understanding each other well might help you create some lovely portraits. We know that it’s a tough job to find the right candid photographer who’d capture the special moments perfectly but it’s not impossible. After finding the right photographer feel free to discuss with them about the shoot and share all your views and ideas with them. A good understanding between the couple and the photographer is the key to get the perfect portraits. It always works wonders and brings out the best in both.
Select the perfect wedding attire
You can rock your wedding look just by picking the right outfit. Well in this department you’ll get many opinions from your sister, mother, friends, colleagues but don’t forget to ask your photographer as they have a better idea about the colour, design, pattern that would make you look pretty and would help you get the best portraits as well. A gorgeous banarasi saree can make you look your prettiest. And cold shoulder tops and blouses are in trend now. You can pair them with classy lehenga or lehenga saree. You can even try out something new only if you are gutsy enough to experiment with your bridal look. We totally get that being a Bengali bride to be how much a red banarasi saree attracts you. But it’s also cool to opt for some different colours like turquoise, green, purple. But it is always better to consult with your photographer because we have a better understanding of what works well with the camera and what doesn’t. Even in some cases the bride and the groom wear the colours that don’t look good with each other. It is only a good photographer who can tell you about these little details.
Choose the right background
Choosing a good background can add an extra oomph to your wedding pictures. No matter what colour or theme you decide just ask your photographer whether it will work well for your portraits. When it comes to a wedding portrait a little detail can make a big difference. It is very important to choose a background which is not clumsy or too loud. A dull or boring background is enough to ruin your pictures. You should always select a background that contrasts well with your wedding outfit. Classic floral decors are always a hit in Bengali weddings. But you can also use some fun and cool stuff like sugar glass bottles, umbrellas, colourful cushions in order to give your wedding decor a unique twist.
Dress up early
Well, this one is a very useful tip. We suggest this to almost every bride to be we come across with. We understand that it takes a hell lot of time to drape those heavy banarasi sarees and wear those heavy make-ups. Choosing a good make-up artist who would help you get ready really fast and make you look stunning at the same time is also a very tough job. In most of the cases, the make-up and hairdo run down after a while. So we always suggest carrying some handy and important items such as the bobby pins, contouring powder and brushing etc so that you can touch up whenever you need. It is best to get ready before time even before everyone else so that you get some extra time with your photographer to create some great candid portraits.
Bid adieu to all your tensions
Though it’s really very difficult to be stress-free on your D-day it is also very important to feel relaxed in order to get good wedding pictures. Maintaining your calm is one of the most important tricks to get some cool candid shots. All you gotta do is just forget about all the worries be happy and live your day to the fullest.
