5 Things You Should Trust Your Wedding Photographer With

Trust is the key ingredient to any relationship. This is true for the relationship you have with your wedding photographer. There’s a reason you chose them to capture the most important day of your life. While you may have a vision of how you want some of your images to turn out, you are going to have to put a lot of trust in your photographer. Trusting your photographer will not only result in better images but will also relieve you of some stress as well.

Choosing the Location of the Shot

Your wedding photographer will have taken the time to familiarize themselves with your reception location to find the best places to photograph. They’ll know where gets the best light and where the best scenery is.

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 day will give you the same results. Your photographer will know what time of day will be best to take those gorgeous outdoor shots.


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. While some photographers will take into consideration your picture ideas, you shouldn’t be offended if they shoot down your ideas. You’ll be working with limited time and light and you don’t want to waste either on your big day.

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 and this is one of the reasons you hired them. Trust them to use their skills to make each image stunning.

Handling Printing Your Photos

A photographer knows where to get prints made and probably has a long-term relationship with a reputable printing company. The worst thing is to have a stunning image, order a large print, and find the colors are off. Knowing where to get prints made, what size they should be done in, and which ones will look best 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.
