These pics from real weddings tell you that why there should be a coordination between wedding decor planners and photographers.
Managing wedding is a tiresome job. Couples have high hopes for getting the great wedding photos. For that matter, everything is to be lined up and coordinated well.
Everyone around you puts their efforts to make your wedding a great success. Indeed, it is a team work.
The to-do-list is long enough. Little things slip your mind while managing the different teams.
You can get the best out of your wedding photography by arranging a coordination between your photographer and wedding decor planners.
Set-up A Coordination Between Your Wedding Decor Planner And Photographer:
You can share the photos of the selected decor theme with your photographer on WhatsApp. The photographer can pick lots of things from photos.
They can give their inputs for improvements by looking at the decor themes. Ask either of the team to coordinate online. It happens in the West.
The stage decoration spreads in good amount of size these days. The mandap and the entry lobby for the guests have become the attraction point of a wedding.
Light and airy color themes have become popular now. If the right kind of lighting set up is not fixed then they all lose the details.
Human eye is more attracted towards everything which carries details in it. Details in visual science is the key element to draw appeal.
Fear of Giving Suggestions:
Visual artists hold different perspectives. The decor artists have their own perception to visualize the things.
Most of the wedding photographers think that their opinion is probably worthless. If they speak up they will look foolish.
Decor planners think that they have booked hundreds of clients with the same wedding decor. So, why to make more improvements? Likewise, nobody becomes icebreaker and things remain the same.
But every wedding is not the same because every individual expresses its emotions differently.
Wedding Decor Ideas Can Be Discussed And Improved:
We offer wedding consultancy to our clients. We team up with our clients and take part in their every important meetings.
If it is not possible to mark our presence in person then we communicate through WhatsApp. We believe that it is the collective responsibility to make your wedding a successful event.
There are wedding planners and decor artists who are open to suggestions. They do customization once you tell them at the time of finalizing the decor theme.
We help our clients in educating them. What kind of lighting set-ups and their angles can be used. What kind of color theme can go well with their wedding attire? How the entry of the bride can be different? What kind of hair-style or duppata set-up can make your profile slimmer?
There is always a scope for improvements! Let me show some pics from expensive wedding venues. These pics from real weddings tell you that why there should be a coordination between wedding decor planners and photographers.
The coordination with us in these weddings could have avoided these decor flaws. Such flaws go unnoticed in Indian weddings or nobody dares to break the ice.
1. Reflections At The Back-Stage:
There is a mirror or glass at the stage. Photographers use external lighting set-up. In this situation, Every photograph had the reflections of food utensils and umbrella lights in the photos.
We had to turn off the external lights. Thankfully, I shoot on ambient lightings so I knew how to manage this situation.
2. Obstructed View:
The space for the photographers was only between the pillars. The pillars obstructed the view while making the photos of the large groups.
3. Height Issues of The Wedding Stage:
The couples are sitting at the higher position than the photographers. Even the chairs could not help to get aligned with the guests and the couples.
The guests in standing position were going out of the frame. The photographers had to crane their neck to make photos. The tall were appearing lanky.
4. No Dedicated Place For Photographers:
In most of the wedding decor, the dedicated place for the photographers are too far. On zoom lenses the large groups do not fit in the frame.
If photographer mounts wide angle lens then guests appear standing very far. The external flash lights do not light up the ambience also.
5. White or Light Color Floral Arrangements Lose The Details:
White or light color floral arrangement with any kind of light loses the details and texture in night. The whole purpose of setting up a floral arrangement does not seve the purpose.
White color floral arrangement confuses the exposure meter of the DSLR camera under extreme lightings. The white floral background gets overexposed once the guests are correctly exposed.
Imagine the roof of your house is covered with snow. DSLR exposure meter reads too much light on the roof even if it is a time of dawn or sunset.
This is the fundamental science of light and photography. The same happens in the situation of white floral arrangements.
The right kind of lighting set-up with floral arrangements can bring more stunning backgrounds. Stage decoration is worth the penny if its grace comes up with details.
