Ask The Celebration Advisor: My sister lives in Charlotte, NC where her wedding will take place in a few months. I have been left in charge to arrange a wedding photographer for the event but I don't exactly know how to find the right one. Can you give me some tips so I can make the right choice for my sister?
The Celebration Advisor: I can tell you understand that beautiful wedding photos don't just happen. It takes a wedding photographer with the keen eyes for perfection and years of expertise to provide new couples with pictures worth a thousand words. Charlotte, NC wedding photographers have spent lots of time looking through a lens and have captured countless wedding photos that leave many newly weds speechless.
In order to find the right photographer for your sister you should interview a few to properly gauge their personalities. A wedding photographer needs to match the energy level of the wedding. If there is to be a riotous reception afterwards then it is important for the photographer to feel comfortable being in the mix of things.
There will be lots of time for candid photos during a wedding, however a photographer also needs to make time for group shots. Most important are pictures of the bride and groom and their parents. Make sure the photographer knows to schedule a small photo shoot after the wedding to capture everyone looking their best. These group shots are perfect for wedding albums and make great photos for future generations to adore.
Another consideration is to find a Charlotte wedding photographer that can provide external lighting. Sometimes florescent and natural lighting will cause shadows to show up on faces and these wont even pass for acceptable or usable photos. Taking pictures somewhere outdoors can provide a picturesque backdrop, and when paired up with proper lighting a photographer could take some of the best images from the wedding.
I am confident that your sister wont be dissapointed with the effort you are giving to find her a wedding photographer. Charlotte, NC will serve as a beautiful backdrop for wedding pictures that will make a great catalogue of her happiest day.
