Aside from the person who actually conducts your wedding ceremony, the wedding photographer is possibly the most critical element of your wedding. The photographer is the one who will be recording your special day and striving to capture all the memories on film. It is very important that you check first the work of different photographers so you will be able to choose the best one whose style and vision matches what you wish to have on your wedding day.

So that the photo sessions are smooth, here are a few tips:

1. Write down all the shots you hope to get. Specify exactly what you want. List exactly who should be in the pictures at specific times and places. It is necessary to determine the amount of coverage you prefer as well. The wedding day can be divided into four photographic sessions which are: the pre-wedding photos, the ceremony, the organized set shots or location shoot, and the reception.

2. Tell them what you want! Instruct people where to go and when to be at the photo shoot. Notify them in advance about what to wear, where they need to be, and when they need to be there.

3. Ensure that the wedding photographer comprehends all your requirements which should be agreed to in writing and signed by both parties.

4. Respect the process. Granted, this event is about you. But if you are feeling out of control, think about what the photographer must be going through trying to keep everything organized for a good photo. Bridesmaids, groomsmen, kinfolk, kids, well-wishers -- all in a bustle, conversing, laughing, and obstructing the way.

Adherence to the preceding outline will allow you to relax while ensuring everything happens as it should. You can make certain that the ceremony begins with no delay and that everybody arrives at the reception with plenty of food to go around. Treat the wedding photographer well, as he has the responsibility for recording your day, and you will like the results.
