If your partner recently proposed to you and you are getting married soon, you must be so happy! A wedding is a big affair, and if you are someone who is planning a big fat wedding, it must be quite a task. Planning a wedding needs lots of time and patience! First, shortlist all the things you require for a wedding. Start with the wedding venue, making a guest list, finalizing invitation cards and looking for an Asian wedding photographer. If you are getting married in the Asian style, there is bound to be endless ceremonies, lots of guests, a colourful venue and delicious food. You need a very good photographer who can capture all of that and knows how Asian weddings work. There’s nothing more important in your life and should be captured the right way. If you don’t take efforts to find the right photographer, don’t expect good coverage. A skilled wedding photographer should be interviewed first, asked for previous work and then chosen. Even if you are unaware of the technicalities that go behind photography, you must be ready with your list of requirements. For example, if you need an underwater pre-wedding photoshoot, you must ask the photographer if he can do it for you. Then, if you want a candid video for your wedding, ask for relevant samples from the photographer and ask if he has done it before. Wedding pictures are memories for a lifetime and whoever takes the responsibility of it should do a good job. But, there are many competitive photographers out there! How do you make sure that you choose the best? There are many ways to do so. You could browse the internet or ask your friends, interview the photographer and then come to a conclusion.
- Must have Experience
