They Understand Diplomacy

One of the most important aspects of planning a modern wedding is managing the personalities of various family members. A wedding photographer who isn’t smart about managing poses involving family members of the bride and groom can create some extremely awkward moments. Don’t let Uncle Ted’s shenanigans turn your special day sour! Whether keeping the peace during picture time means keeping a pair of divorced parents out of the same frame, or putting a little space between warring bridesmaids, the right photographer should be able to seamlessly direct every pose without creating a scandal or offending anyone. A photographer with finesse will take time to speak with a bride and groom ahead of time to learn the relationship dynamics of their family members and bridal party. The last thing you want is a photographer who shows up and blindly rounds up family members for poses without understanding sensitivities that may be lurking. Bring on the people skills!

They Don’t Come Alone
There are a million special moments at a wedding. A photographer can’t be in more than one place at once. This is why it’s essential for a photographer to come with a skilled assistant who is capable of taking auxiliary shots. A good photographer will stick with the bride and groom throughout the event to catch every tender look or playful smile that can be captured on camera. The photographer can send their assistant to capture touching or fun moments happening among guests. An assistant photographer can also travel to the location where the groom is getting ready while the main photographer stays with the bride to snap all of the memorable preparation shots at the bride’s house or suite. A good team of photographers will have eyes everywhere and won’t miss a thing. Wonder team powers, activate!

They Photograph Objects and People
Once adrenaline kicks in, most brides and grooms won’t remember the way their champagne glasses glistened or the color of the flowers on their cake. It’s important to use a photographer who has an eye for detail when it comes to snapping all of the little touches that make wedding receptions special. A photographer shouldn’t stop snapping photos just because a couple is busy eating or taking a break from the party for a few minutes. The quiet moments between the loud moments should be spent photographing the scenery and details at your choice of beautiful Monmouth County wedding venues. You worked hard on those glittery burlap-wrapped mason jars, dang it! They deserve their moment to shine!
