Multifaceted Creative Inspiration

Nov 01, 2018

Creative inspiration and the enthusiasm as well as desire to craft imagery that narrates the love and affection between two individuals on a pre-wedding shoot can take many forms. Suffice to say, it is such stimuli that facilitates the conception of photos that ‘paint a thousand words’ of the couple, so to speak.

Catalysts that trigger the imaginative spark can include some of the following :

  • A destination that the photographer has always wanted to photograph at.
  • A resort with spectacular and awe-inspiring vistas that not only inspire but motivate the photographer.
  • A myriad of locations of differing settings that act as perfect backdrops, challenging the photographer to compose and create photos that convey the relationship between the couple, feature the panorama and showcase his or her artistry.
  • Genuine, friendly yet professional service rendered by the property’s staff, ensuring that the photoshoot runs smoothly, and that the couple as well as the photographer equally experience the personal satisfaction associated with the shoot.

A few tips for soon-to-be-weds :

  • Hire a wedding photographer who is amiable and whom you can get along with, and one who strives to fulfill all his or her professional obligations.
  • Place your complete trust in your photographer, giving them carte blanche to exercise their artistic talents as they see fit.
  • While budgets are always a factor for consideration, do take into account attributes such as artistry, demeanour, communication skills, response rate to queries and level of professionalism.
