You have the Big Day ahead of you – and suddenly your to-do list no longer fits a small post-it note. There is shopping to do, people to meet and invite, the decor to choose for your special day and well, the list is endless.
Choosing a photographer once fell right into the “parents’ territory” in Indian Weddings. No longer so, as more and more people are interested in a candid coverage of the events which offers much more than a visual attendance register of the guests. Couples want a picture of that moment where they exchanged a slow, knowing smile. Their best friends laughing heartily. A guest in the crowd with a funny expression. Gleeful children. Parents who look wistful, nervous, happy all at the same time.
“I see no difference between my album and my mom’s that was done 30 years ago!”, remarked one of my clients who was disappointed that she had engaged only a studio photographer to cover her engagement ceremony. That in my opinion, is the most pressing reason I’ve ever come across, as to why one should go for a candid photographer.
So how does one go about the job of choosing a candid wedding photographer?
One of the common concerns is that there is no dearth of amateurs in this field, and the other one is that “anyone with a DSLR calls himself a photographer these days!”. If this sounds familiar to you, here are some pointers to help you choose the right photographer for you.
With these tips, you should be able to book the right one for you. Please do leave a comment if you think there is something else that helped you find the right photographer!
