How to get the best photos of your event
Getting the best event coverage is mostly about getting the right photographer to match your vision for the day, but here are some things you might want to consider to help them get only the best shots!
What looks great in real life may not always be the best for the final photos. Think of all the times you've thought what a gorgeous sunny day it is whilst many photographers pray it will be overcast on the day of a shoot. But that's not all there is too it!
If you have an event in the evening or the venue is quite dark (like a church), it’s helpful to have white ceilings or walls for your photographer to bounce flash off of. One of the hardest jobs I’ve had to do was an outdoor party in the evening with very little ambient lighting. Dark walls and ceilings can also be very challenging. DJ lights can look very cool in real life, but expect photos to come out with varied lighting situations! Despite all this, your photographer will be able to adapt and create the necessary lighting artificially. So the best you can do is to let them know in advance what the venue and lighting situation is like, so they can come fully prepared!
TALK TO YOUR PHOTOGRAPHER
Your photographer will probably want to go over the details with you in advance. I always schedule a call to ask about the venue, amount of guests and any requests my clients have. But these are just some little things you might want to consider for the next event, and if in doubt, discuss it with your event photographer. That's the one sure-fire way to ensure everything goes smoothly!
