If you’ve ever browsed through our amazing ISPWP contest galleries, you had no doubt seen some amazing wedding photographs and imagined the possibilities for your upcoming wedding day. In the galleries, there are photos of a bridal couple with stunning landscapes, lighting, and brilliant composition; truly outstanding examples of what a creative photographer can do with a portrait. If you can imagine a captivating portrait like what you’ve seen online on your walls after the wedding, then how can you work with your photographer to achieve that on your wedding day?
Show Your Photographer What You Like
Don’t worry about offending your photographer by showing them photos from other photographers, but don’t expect them to completely recreate someone else’s idea. Instead, tell them how the photo makes you feel, and what it is that you like about the photo. There may be an element in the photo that you can’t quite put your finger on, and photographers as visual artists may be able to interpret that for you.
