Pro Tips for your wedding day

I want to share some valuable tips to ensure that your special day runs seamlessly and stress-free. So, let's dive right in, shall we?

First and foremost, communication is key. As soon as you start planning your wedding, make sure you keep an open line of communication with all your vendors, including yours truly. We can discuss all the nitty-gritty details, from your desired shots to your preferred style. Feel free to share any unique ideas or themes you have in mind; after all, this is YOUR day.

Timing is everything. When creating your wedding day schedule, be generous with the time allocated for each event. Trust me, you don't want to feel like you're rushing from one precious moment to another. By allowing for some breathing room, you'll have the freedom to fully enjoy each and every magical moment without the stress of being chased by the clock.

Get organised and stay organised. It's essential to have a clear plan for your day. Have a list of all the important shots you want, like those touching candid moments or that breathtaking sunset portrait. Share this list with me beforehand, so that we don't miss a single thing. Remember, a well-organised wedding day leads to beautiful memories captured forever.

Consider the light – the secret ingredient to stunning photos. When planning your ceremony and reception, think about the lighting conditions. If you're having an outdoor wedding, remember that the best lighting for photos is often during the "golden hour," which is approximately one hour before sunset. If you're indoors, try to incorporate soft and flattering lighting to set the perfect mood. Good lighting can transform your photos into works of art!

Last but definitely not least, relax and enjoy yourselves. Your wedding day is a celebration of love, and it should be filled with joy, laughter, and unforgettable moments. Trust your photographer to capture all the beauty and emotions, so you can focus on creating memories with your loved ones. Remember, a relaxed and happy couple always looks incredible in photos!

10 Mistakes Brides Make And How To Avoid Them

I want to share some valuable advice with all the lovely brides out there. Planning a wedding can be overwhelming, and it's easy to make a few mistakes along the way. So, let's dive right in and discuss ten common errors brides tend to make, as well as how to avoid them:

1. Rushing through the hiring process: It's crucial not to pick your wedding photographer in haste. Take time to research, review portfolios, and meet with potential photographers in person. This ensures you find the perfect match for capturing your big day just as you envisioned.

2. Ignoring the importance of a pre-wedding shoot: Many brides underestimate the benefits of a pre-wedding photoshoot. It allows you to get comfortable in front of the camera, build rapport with your photographer and even get some beautiful shots before the main event.

3. Neglecting to discuss your desired shots: Don't assume that your photographer can read your mind. Clearly communicate your vision, must-have shots, and any specific details that are important to you. A good photographer will gladly accommodate your wishes.

4. Overlooking the timing: Timing is everything, especially on your wedding day. Discuss schedules with your photographer to ensure there's enough time allocated for key moments such as the first look, family portraits, and couple shots. This will help avoid feeling rushed or missing out on any special memories.

5. Not considering the venue's lighting: Different venues possess unique lighting challenges. Talk to your photographer beforehand to understand how the lighting conditions can impact your photos, and if necessary, plan accordingly with additional equipment or alternative themes.

6. Failing to arrange a backup plan: Weather can be unpredictable, so it's wise to have a backup plan in case of rain or adverse conditions. Choose indoor locations or find suitable outdoor alternatives to make sure your photoshoot goes smoothly, rain or shine.

7. Neglecting to brief the bridal party: Make sure your bridal party is aware of the schedule and any specific photo requirements. Select a responsible member who knows the plan and can help organise everyone promptly when needed.

8. Letting family dynamics cause complications: Family dynamics can be challenging during weddings. Communicate openly with your photographer about any potentially sensitive situations. They'll be able to handle the interactions tactfully, ensuring everyone remains comfortable and happy.

9. Getting caught up in perfection: Remember, perfection is subjective. Allow room for spontaneity and genuine moments. Sometimes, the imperfect shots capture the most beautiful and heartfelt memories.

10. Lastly, failing to enjoy the day: It's easy to get caught up in the whirlwind of the day itself. Take a moment, breathe, and remind yourself to relax and enjoy every second. Your photographer will be there to capture all the joy, love, and laughter.

I hope these tips will help you avoid these common mistakes and make your wedding photography experience truly unforgettable. If you have any further questions or need any assistance, feel free to reach out to Acet Photography. I’m here to make your big day even more special.
