Ideas for your wedding photos

If you’re planning a wedding, you’ll know one of the most important parts of the big day is making sure it’s captured in the perfect way for you. The last thing you want is a terrible photo album after a great day. Here are some of our top tips to ensure you make the most of your professional photographer and the fabulous surrounds of Tulfarris Hotel.

Do your research

Ideally getting recommendations from friends or other married couples is the best way to choose your wedding photographer. Take a look at a selection of portfolios of work and choose a photographer that best represents the style you want your wedding album to reflect. Remember, a good photographer isn’t cheap and a cheap one isn’t good!

Make your own shot list

Weeks before the big day, make a list of shots and scenery that are important to you. Don’t assume your photographer will know that you want a picture with great Aunt Mary without telling them! Make a list of people and places you want to include in your album and give it to your photographer prior to the big day so they can plan correctly.

Trust your photographer

You’re hiring a professional to capture your big day so you can remember it forever, so trust them to do just that! Providing you have done your research and told them roughly what you want to capture, don’t try to micromanage. Ensure your photographer has worked in the area before and knows the beauty of the area and they will arrange a shoot schedule for you.
