A wedding photographer is undoubtably a critical part of the wedding equation. He or she is the one who captures those amazing moments that newlywed couples will cherish for the rest of their lives, commemorates those memorable moments, and helps the bride and groom feel great and timeless about how they look on their big day.
Unfortunately, wedding photography doesn't come without its share of troubles. These five tactics can cause the novice, unprofessional, or even an overly creative photographer to entirely unintentionally ruin a couple's special day.
1. The photographer didn't communicate with the bride and groom ahead of time about what they wanted.
Finalizing poses during the wedding itself is a bad plan of action for several reasons. First and foremost, it may be difficult for the bride and groom to remember those dream poses that they genuinely wanted to have when they're in the middle of the highly emotional event itself. Second, they might not have time to concentrate on the photographer during the wedding, when they should be focused on each other and their guests.
