Decision of a Lifetime...
Many couples underestimate the importance of this one single decision – either pick any photographer that takes beautiful images or dig deep and really think about their decision for someone that is truly involved in their story, after all how brides should choose a Boston wedding photographer is a crucial part for the planning of a beautiful wedding, and this goes for anyone.
Well, think about this: No one is getting married many times over, at least this is not their initial plan. You are saying YES once and your wedding day is basically the culmination of so much planning and so much history up to that day. It's simply too big of an event not to think about how it will be frozen in time, either through a video production professional, or a spectacular Boston wedding photographer that can truly understand the craft. It's not only about art, neither is about being so professional. In truth, the industry seems to be creating more "pros" than normal human beings that put themselves in the client's shoes, and is able to shut the noise from the commercial aspect of a wedding and position themselves as problem solvers, helpers and servants of those who are the true narrators of a story – you, the bride, couple and family.
It's true, the industry can communicate the need for professionals that are at least capable of providing a good service, but is it what brides really need, just professionals? We are talking about more than an event, but probably the most incredible event of anyones life and this calls for more than "pros" to do the job, agree?
Here is How Brides Should Choose a Boston Wedding Photographer...
STEP 1: You need someone who is willing to meet you on a personal level, who is willing to listen to what YOU have to say, what are your plans, what makes you smile or cry. You need someone willing to see beyond the commercial side of an event but almost help you see what you don't, plan with you, give you human advice based on experience and not a "pro consulting" approach. This will give you more than a professional perspective about your day and you and your family will appreciate it.
Take for example this Boston Jewish Wedding, where the family needed more than a professional but someone that was involved, that felt responsible to make sure the day went smoothly for everyone and even though the wedding was a 2-day event (yes, I know), it was a blast to be able to know the family well, talk to everyone and the photos we took were breathtaking... check it out!
STEP 2: Get in touch with someone that understands LIGHT and can photograph ANYWHERE. Yes, many will tell you that they are "experts" and will give you beautiful photos 'cause they use "natural light" – Know this: 90% of the "pros" that tell you this, have no idea how to make photos inside a 400 square feet apartment or even smaller, why? Well, the reason is simple, they don't understand light and how it works or how it behaves, or even if the "natural light" they are using, fits that couple (yes it all matters).
The fact is, when you have a story, this happens anywhere, inside a car, in a room, in the shopping mall, in the hospital, with or without light, the story happens and you need someone that can read a scene and be able to capture moments, EVEN in the absence of light, it will make all the difference in the world, take a look at some of the images below and you will know what I mean...
STEP 3: Look for a Boston Wedding Photographer that not only take beautiful images, but can capture the essence of a couple and their personalities. You know, one thing is the photo being professional, the other is what that photo communicates to the couple. What I've seem in the many years photographing is the lack of personality in many of the images we see online. Pros of this day and age will heavily rely on equipment and "post-production" to add that "special flair" or that "unique spark" when the hero of the image is neither, but the couple, their laughter and joy while being photographed.
So you might ask: "Wendell, what's your secret, what's your special sauce for creating images to help brides like me, choose a Boston Wedding Photographer for my special day?" and I will tell you with a big open smile on my face: "You need two things: One, you need to hire me on your wedding day and two, you need someone to talk to, to interact and have an open discussion about everything." ♥️
Take a look at the images full of personality below and you will know exactly what I'm talking about, cause it's not about having a good equipment, but having the right mindset and being able to have a good connection long before picking up a camera, agree?
