Wedding photography: The competitive trends this season!

Wedding photography has become a booming industry of its own. It’s no secret that the market has evolved into a highly competitive and fierce one. Moreover, the wedding photography industry has become highly diluted as it gets more difficult each day to distinguish the professionals from the amateurs. If you belong to the wedding party and already have a good photographer in mind, it’s best you strike this one off your to-do list as soon as possible to avoid the issue of availability later on. However, if you’re new on the wedding scene and don’t have the first clue about how this industry functions, then it might help to have these few snippets of information handy.

Pros versus Rookies

The industry is full of budding photographers looking to make their mark, and they’re certainly giving the professionals a run for their money. However, while the upcoming photographers are more enthusiastic and willing to experiment with different styles since they don’t have a niche of their own yet, the professionals are more aware of what works in the market and provide the assurance that everything will be smooth sailing on your big day. What you need to identify is whether you’re willing to take the risk with an overzealous beginner (their rates are lower too) or wish to stick with someone more seasoned.

Traditional versus contemporary

Once you’ve decided the experience you need, you have to figure out the style you want. Traditional photography and contemporary photography both have their own charm, and it all depends on the types of memories you want to keep. Are you a ritualist who believes it’s important to focus on the wedding ceremony? Do you want a shot of the kanyadaan, the pheras, the cake cutting and the toast? Do you want a picture of your entire family (including the extended one) posing for a stage shot that you can frame for your drawing room? Well, then traditional photographers are the right choice for you. However, if you’re an artistic soul and want your wedding album to tell more of a story, then contemporary photographers are the way to go. Portrait photographers use unconventional props and themes to work up a sense of magic and mystery, to add that fantasy element to your wedding.

The social media factor

Social media sites such as Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn are slowly becoming a great marketing tool for photographers. Visibility on these social networks has become an absolute must, and photographers are really putting themselves out there to attract the right customers. You can check what their work experience is like, their wedding portfolios are usually available online, and you can even check their reviews to see how many people recommend them. This is also the best method to help you pick the photographer that suits you best. However, by far the long-lasting cornerstone to every successful wedding photographer’s business is a blog. Seasoned photographers are still of the opinion that this is the best way to connect with their audience and get their work featured on bigger wedding blogs.

Your wedding day will most probably be a once-in-a-lifetime affair and one you want to remember forever. That’s why, it’s very important that you hire the person you feel is most skilled to capture the right memories of your wedding day. Keep this in mind and begin your hunt for the photographer whose work pulls your heartstrings. Say cheese!

The road ahead… Post Engagement.

What kind of a wedding do you want?

The one with a groom.” – said Jude Deveraux who is well known for her historical romances.

Unfortunately in today’s times, a wedding encompasses more than just a groom. It is a blend of families, friends, responsibilities, decisions and some major decisions. Yours will be such! As soon as most couples get engaged they tend to feel like the helpless employee of a call centre – the ones who get bombarded with every question they never seem to have the answer for. Who, when, what, where and why seems to be the start to every conversation regarding the wedding and at times like these, the only way to have an answer is by creating a list. Yes! A to-do list. Just when you thought these lists only existed in school or at the workplace, you’ll be surprised. These lists will stay with you till THE DAY and perhaps later (for memories of course).

Work within a framework

Once he pops the question, a good idea would be a systematic approach to planning the wedding. The two questions that you have to ask yourselves before you start prepping up are: Will it be a small, intimate wedding or a big, copious one? Secondly, will it be a Local one or a Destination one? Once you have these questions answered, you give yourself a framework to work within.

Create a budget

Like with every other event you may have organized before, the most important factor is setting a realistic budget and getting the most of that budget. Nobody wants to “settle in” for something they aren’t completely satisfied with – not at least on this day that comes ‘once in a lifetime’ (for the most of us).

Get assistance

Up until this point your enthusiasm levels will probably be high and you will to take on everything yourself will soar. This is partially due to the fact that you are visualizing fine drapes, enchanting music and your partner exuding love and romance. But, when you realize everything comes at a cost and a cost you are not sure of or don’t know how much to negotiate for, you’ll realize the need for assistance. Opt for a wedding planner to help you streamline your thoughts.

Opt for a specialized and  experienced team

Professional wedding planners not only assist you with making the right decisions but they also help you see different aspects of the wedding you may have not accounted for. Think about your wedding set in the backdrop of a beautiful Mughal theme, you and your partner in all your fineries, traditional entertainment for guests and then throw in your regular photographer (who perhaps charged a little less than the one recommended by the planner) who hasn’t styled the shots right. Years later do you want to open a wedding album that doesn’t make you relive the memories? Thus we stress the importance of specialized wedding companies who look at every part of the process to give you a beautiful complete picture.

We assure you, by choosing not just any wedding planner but the best wedding planner in your city, your role remains the same. You stay in control of the big day while your wish is their command. The master plan or what we call the checklist stays with you thus giving you an entire idea of the tasks involved, who is responsible for them and by when it will be achieved and you in turn enjoy the benefits of the stress being taken off you for a swap of spare time to actively participate in the fun and frolic of the festivities.
