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.

For a smooth running photo session, here are a few tips:

1. Construct a list of all of the photos you desire. Name exactly what you want! State exactly who you want pictures of, and at what point and in what setting. It is important to determine the amount of coverage you prefer as well. The wedding day can be segmented 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 especially those in bridesmaid dresses. Notify them in advance about what to wear, where they need to be, and when they need to be there.

3. Ensure that both you and the wedding photographer clearly understand what you need, and that everything is stated in writing and that you sign it.

4. Respect the procedures. Of course, this day is yours. However if you are having a chaotic experience, just think about what the photographer is going through trying to capture all of the chaos in the midst of him for a photo. Members of the bridal party, family members, friends, relatives — everyone is standing around, chatting and generally getting in the way.

If you follow these steps, it will help your peace of mind and avoid problems for everyone. You can ensure that the wedding ceremony begins as scheduled and that everyone arrives at the reception on time and gets their share of the wedding meal. The wedding photographer is the person responsible for capturing the memories of this day, so be good to him or her so that you will be satisfied with the result.
