not a photographer’s job to nurse your lack of confidence
All too often wedding photographers are requested by brides, grooms, and even guests to transform themselves into their airbrushed version. Photographers, after all, are magicians! They can make you look like a size-2 runway model or an ageless vampire if you badly want them to – provided that they are well-compensated, of course.
a photographer can edit out imperfections and it is their job to carry it out
as well. However, it does not mean he has to spend countless hours trying to
transform you into someone else. Do you really want others to look at your
pictures and doubt its authenticity?
it bluntly, a genuine photographer does not tolerate negative body image. He
captures the moments as they happen rather than spend hours to make you look
like another version of yourself. It is your wedding day – the day when your
beloved decides to tie the knot as he loves you for who you are and not for the
person you think could become. If you want to look like someone else, wait for

assume that a photographer’s service fee is extravagant, considering that he

changes to your photos. Otherwise, they will lose money by eating into their
the many things photographers share in common is the fact they allocate a huge
portion of their time perfecting your photos. After an eight or a fourteen-hour
shoot, they will start burning the midnight oil as they go through hundreds if
not a thousand shots to pick the best ones to ensure you see the very essence
of your grand wedding in the images they deliver. Photographers have to make
adjustments, add effects, and edit out imperfections for each photo. Therefore,
don’t ask your photographer to rush things out.
of snap-happy guests are a photographer’s pet peeve
Only a few photographers are keen on the idea
of iPhone-clad guests during weddings. For a good reason, a majority of guests
with iPhones these days tend to be focused on making their moment. Smartphones
at weddings potentially interfere with the photographer’s best shot, especially
when someone else uses a flash. There is absolutely nothing worse than a diva
trying to steal the spotlight or having a grandpa in a photo with a huge iPad.
Sadly, smartphones are not going away.
