Photography Do's and Don'ts
I love black and white photography. It's artistic, moody, and atmospheric, but I'm not sure I would want my wedding to be entirely in black and white photography. There are moments when black and white photography are great.
DO choose a photographer who's style is versatile, but not disjointed. You want someone who has a vision of what your wedding will look like, but you also want some shots that are out of the box. If you can afford it, you might want to consider a second shooter.
DON'T go avant garde. Remember that these photos need to stand the test of time. If you're too focused on artsy photography, in ten years it could look really dated.
DO provide a list of shots to take. One rule of thumb for photographers is that if it looks expensive, you want a picture of it. A wedding is made up of details so the photographer should take a picture or two of your centerpieces, your dress, and your shoes.
DON'T skip the walk through. The photographer should see the venue beforehand to scout out all the best locations. He or she should also be provided with a schedule so he has a general timeline of when things are going to happen. For instance, you don't want him in the bathroom when you're about to cut the cake!
