Tips for Getting the Best from Your Wedding Shoot

First and foremost, couples need to thoroughly discuss their wedding shoot with me. This will prevent unexpectedly challenging shooting situations that might prevent me from meeting a couple's expectations. More often than not good photo / video shoots are accomplished by planning, not by chance. If a couple has special poses, settings or other concerns in mind, be sure to discuss them ahead of time with me so that I can properly prepare for them.

DSC_1881

However, do not be afraid to think outside the box!!!!! I will make every effort to accommodate all of your wedding photo and / or video desires.

Rondel Village Resort 9

Remember, nowhere is it written that wedding photos & videos have to look banal and traditional. This is especially true when they are taken in the scenic tropical settings found in beautiful Negril Jamaica!

The Kids Centre

Beach & Shoreline Locations in Negril (Lighting etc.)

For these locations morning hours are best as far as lighting is concerned! This time of day gives you about a 70% guarantee of capturing both a sunlit atmospheric sparkle and a beautiful blue sea in the background of any photos and videos taken then.


This time of day however, does bring the possibility of shadows under the eyelids and chin which I can minimize with my use of a fill flash.

DSC_1188

A beach wedding in the afternoon hours offers only a 50 - 50 chance of having a good sunset because that's when Jamaica often has cloudiness and the possibility of rain.

Marvin&Aisha Wedding@Rondel Village,Negri, Jamaica (17)

There can be a loss of natural daylight due to cloudiness and rain. If there is no clouds. The sun will be out in all it's glory, but angled directly at the camera lens, (when shooting straight out to sea) causing heavy backlight and rendering peoples faces dark, even with the use of flash.

DSC_1429

Video shooting into heavy backlight is even worse than shooting still photos into it because the details of the background and people's clothing sometimes have to be sacrificed to get the necessary exposure of their faces.

Depending upon the time of year and time of day, I can improve lighting conditions by angling my shots of people back up the beach as opposed to out to sea. This however may cause problems with uninvited guest wandering into the background.

Charela Inn

However, with romantically posed and well timed shots into the sunset, and with the appropriate amount of flash, your sunset photos can come out absolutely breathtaking!!!!!

Charela Inn (A)

Brides please remember that when marching up the aisle, walk slowly and try not to look down. The shots are always better with your eyes open.

Remember when you are exchanging your vows always look at each other and not at the marriage officer. This will give your photos/video a more romantic look and will also lessen the chance of shooting the back of your heads.

While putting on rings show the bling!!

Angle your hands in a way that the photographer/videographer can get a clean shot of them.

DSC_5737B

Brides, also show off the “rock” while signing the register (even when others are signing) - try to ensure that the hand with the ring is always on the table and not in your lap.

DSC_5621B

Yes, it’s about the bling!!!!!

DSC_5887B

Kissing shots look better when the couple’s faces can be seen from the side by the camera.

Charela Inn 5

We know grooms, that you just want to swoop in and kiss your lovely bride, but remember in going in for that nuptial kiss, you can block the view of your bride’s face and end up showing the back of your head to the camera. Don’t worry if this inadvertently happens however. It only means that you might be asked to kiss her again to show both of your faces in the replacement photo.


It is always looks good when the couple tries to look at each other and/or make conversation while walking down the aisle towards or away from the video camera. This really enhances your wedding video!

Tye & Dee (20)

If there is no designated podium for giving toasts all should stand close to the people they are toasting so that I may get them all into the shots. This makes practical sense in capturing a shot that tells the story.


Remember that your wedding will be shot with one video camera (unless other arrangements are made), so strategic staging will give more value for money.

Dear Forrester,

Thanks for your quick reply! Everything looks good. How do you accept payment? Do you take credit cards? If so, what type and when is payment expected?

Concerning your ad and how I found you. I did allot of searching on "Negril" and "photographer". I also read forums on what others had to say about their photographers. What attracted me to your ad was that you answered the questions I would have asked up front. And there were many photographer ads they gave no information. They did not give a price for x amount and did not give the file size for the CD. If you have any camera savvy, you know if the file size is too small you can't enlarge without getting blurry. I liked your portfolio and your willingness to work with the client. So, all that gives a potential client a comfort factor. Hope that helps.

Let me know about payment information and I will get your form back to you.
Kind Regards,

Judy

Hi, just wanted to send an email to thank you very much for getting our
photos returned to us back in the UK following our wedding at Point Village
on 5th February. We were given the smaller prints before we left and the
large ones arrived at the weekend. They are absolutely gorgeous and will
lovely in the album etc.

We had a wonderful wedding and also the video is fantastic although we have
had it put onto DVD just in case I wear it out!

Anyway, thank you again and I hope your new website is going okay.

Best wishes to you and the wedding co-ordinator's team.

Mr and Mrs John and Julie O'Neill
