When meeting before the wedding, the couple asked if there would be enough moments to capture since there wasn’t much planned. The flow of the event can be elaborate or simple, but it does not affect the abundance of footage captured, as it is just a part of the wedding day.
A wedding is composed of numerous elements that need to be communicated between the couple and the photographer.
What aspects I value in my mind need to be communicated by the beginners to the photographer, rather than the photographer speculating what they like or freely improvising (with the consent of the beginners).
Photographers portray the wedding day based on their technical skills and experience. However, to guide the photographer in capturing specific moments or elements, it is essential for the couple to proactively communicate their desired direction. This enables the photographer to have a clear focus and follow their lead.
Just like a restaurant, newcomers are like the big boss, expressing their desired direction for the restaurant to be Japanese, French, or American in terms of taste, and where the budget should be allocated for dishes.
A photographer is like a chef, utilizing their skills in menu design and cooking, with direction determined by the owner, and the results presented by the chef.
What kind of dishes do you want?
