Wedding Photography Tips for Your Special Day

Thursday, July 14th, 2011

Hiring a wedding photographer can be an affordable and creative way to remember every single moment of your wedding. You may need to hire a professional wedding photographer, make a list of important events you want to be photographed, choose good locations, gather every relative and what not.

First, you have to hire a good professional wedding photographer well in advance by properly checking his credentials and other details. If you delay the booking you may not be able to find good photographers. Once you have decided on a person you need to work together to make him understand all your requirements. You can give him all the details about the important moments you want to be captured, your relatives, and the various locations to include so that he can be prepared for the job. Make a complete list of shots you would like to be made and hand it over to him well ahead so that he can be prepared for the event.

Quite often, you miss a lot of people in your photographs, especially some of your close relatives. In order to avoid such situations, it is better to appoint a family coordinator who can guide the photographer to take photos of all the important guests without missing anyone. To get the best wedding photographs you need to do a lot of preparation. You can make a visit to beautiful locations close by to look for places you want to be photographed. This will also be very helpful on your special day to quickly go to these locations and take shots.

For additional assistance, the photographer can also have a second photographer to help him out on certain occasions. Some moments may be difficult to shoot from a single location. In the presence of a second photographer he can take the shots from another angle as well. This will be very helpful to choose the best shots of the important events. Apart from this the photographers should be well prepared with their cameras which should be in good working condition and include all other necessary items which might be useful in emergency situations.

There might be some moments when something goes wrong in the midst of the wedding. Such situations can be used to capture a lot of fun images which will be appreciated and fun to look at later on. So it is up to the photographer to use his own creativity and initiative to provide the best wedding photography for everyone to remember.

Choosing Groomsmen Gifts

Tuesday, September 15th, 2009

Groomsmen play very important roles in weddings. Think of your groomsmen’s individual personalities. Most grooms choose their groomsmen as people who are very close to them. This will make it easier for you to determine what kinds of gifts your groomsmen will like. Ask yourself: What does this particular groomsman like to do? What are his hobbies, interests, favorites? Remember that generic ideas for groomsmen gifts can kind of, well, downright boring. You don’t want your groomsmen to think that you only bought them presents just because it’s a tradition. Personalized groomsmen gift ideas are the best way of telling your groomsmen that you went out of your way in buying them gifts you knew they would like.

Think practical. Your groomsmen will love functional gifts that they can use regularly. If your groomsmen are travelling businessmen, it would be a good idea to hand them engraved pens, paperweights, travelling suitcases, passport cases, desk clocks, or toiletry kits. You can also buy great groomsmen gifts depending on your men’s favorite pastimes. If they love beer, and most men do, you can purchase beer steins, shot glasses, beer mugs, flasks, or Beer of the Month Club gift certificates. If you have a groomsman who is an athlete, buy him things that are related to his sport. A pair of goggles for the swimmer, cleats for the football player, arm sleeves or knee pads for the basketball lover, or a nunchaku for the martial arts pro. Outdoor adventurers would love to receive camping gear, fishing and hunting equipment, lumbar packs, portable stoves, flashlights, or a hammock for resting.

Never ever sacrifice quality for affordability. You definitely have several important things that need your budget’s attention for your wedding: the reception, the catering, the wedding gown, the accommodation for out-of-town guests. But always remember that your groomsmen played very important roles in helping make your wedding a happy and memorable event. Look for gifts that you know will last for years. You’ll be very pleased on your fifth wedding anniversary, when your groomsmen grace your dinner celebration using the high-quality, stylish cufflinks you presented to them on your wedding day.
