Wedding photography involves taking photographs which capture the mood of the moment as reflected by the emotions and expression on one's face. While the focus in this form of photography may be on one's face, you may also include the body and the background. There are many photographers who specialize in this form of photography and if you approach them for a photo session, then you will need to sign a contract with them. In this article, we will tell you what this contract that you will be expected to sign, as a client of a portrait photographer comprises.
Wedding photographers have a reputation for being high strung and haughty. Not all wedding photographers are this way, but some are. Most couples are looking for a photographer who takes great pictures, and also is sociable during the wedding. It is best if you interview the photographer before you hire him. Ask to-the-point questions and gauge his reactions. If you feel that the photographer is putting on an act, he probably is. Trust your instincts. Ask for references, and then follow up on them. Make sure to ask about the photographer's personality. If you feel comfortable with the photographer and vice versa, it will show in the pictures.
As a wedding is a one-time event, the photographer must be prepared for the unexpected. Shooting a wedding is both exhausting and invigorating as the photographer is constantly looking for good angles and opportunities for candid shots. Communication and planning time-lines before the event will alleviate many of the stresses associated with photographing a wedding. The ability to tactfully take charge also helps - particularly when photographing large groups or families - a common expectation after the ceremony. Having a run list with all of the expected shots is also a useful tool.
Most photographers provide a set of proofs (usually untouched, edited images) for the clients to view. Photographers may provide hard copy proofs in the form of 4x5 or 4x6 prints, a "magazine" of images with thumbnail sized pictures on multiple pages, an online proof gallery, and images on CD or DVD in the form of a gallery or a slideshow, or a combination of the above. Some photographers provide these proofs for the client to keep, and some photographers require the client to make final print choices from the proofs and then return them or purchase them at an additional cost.
Lastly, when you are looking for a wedding photographer, make sure that any potential photographers that you are looking into have the type of experience that you are looking for. You need someone that can photograph everything with the flashing lights, glitter and other bright, elaborate decoration you might have. Be sure that their photo package also includes everything in it that you want. If you aren't getting things you want then look for a different photographer a photo package should always be customized to the bride.
The owner of the pictures' copyright is often explicitly stated in the contract for photographic services. Without such explicit statement, the owner of the pictures' copyright will depend on the country involved as copyright laws vary from country to country. Photographers who do not retain copyright of the images often charge more for their services. In these cases, the photographer provides the client with the digital images as part of the wedding package. The client then has unrestricted use of the images and can print any that they may desire.
