What are the benefits of a first-look photo shoot?

We're getting married in a garden so I'm worried that my partner will see me coming and lose that wow factor. What are the benefits of doing a first-look photo shoot instead?

As photographers we love to capture emotions of the groom seeing the bride for the first time. Unless you are going to have two photographers, it is difficult to capture grooms emotions very well and bride walking down the aisle at the same time with best angles. A first-look photo session definitely allows us to capture all the emotions of the groom when groom sees the bride for the first time. 

However, No matter how well couples plan the schedule for the day, we have experienced that some of the weddings struggle to follow the run sheet. Specially the ceremony preparations. In order to have a first-look session, it is a good idea to have some buffer time between completion of getting ready to ceremony start time as ceremony preparations can sometimes take more time than you expect. 

If your photography booking comes with two photographer, we can capture all these emotions when you walking down the aisle. Since you are having a garden wedding, we understand this might not be an option. If you go with a first-look session It's good idea to have some buffer time allocated before the ceremony starts. 

does the higher price in a wedding photographer mean better quality?

It is not 100% accurate all the time. There are many reasonably priced photographers who deliver the same or sometimes better quality compared to some of the expensive photographers. I believe, the best way to compare the quality of the photographer is comparing the portfolio between photographers.

When I say the portfolio, it must contain plenty of high-qaulity photos. It is better not to take a decision of the photographer just by looking at few good photos.

I am looking for someone to do a styled shoot with as I am not super happy with my wedding photo's is this something anyone would be interested in?

Hi, Please check our store front see our work. We are also running a photo-booth hire promotion these days. Cheers.

What happens if you dont like the photos your photographer gives you?

I'm pretty disappointed in the quality.

It is very important to go through the portfolio before hiring a photographer. Photographers usually have few styles. When you meet the photographer discuss which style you would like to have. Some couples like only candid shots and some like posed photos, some like mix of both.

On the wedding day, we always show some photos from the camera while doing photoshoot. If the photographer does not show you the photos, remind them to show some photos time to time. 

Requirements mismatches with editing can be always corrected but not with the requirements which need to be met while taking the photos.

Always add any special requests to the contract as photographers usually go through the contract before the wedding to find any special requirements. 

If you are asking this question after your wedding you have very limited options. This means the bride and groom have not gone through the portfolio of selected photographer and have not discussed your requirements in detail.  In this case, you have few options

1. Discuss with your photographer to make some changes while the photos being edited.

2. In a worst case scenario (If you still have the dresses) do the bridal party photosboot on the same location. But this will only fix the bridal party shots.
