Three really simple but essential tips for having the best time possible on your wedding day… because I know you’ve probably already seen the ‘here are a zillion things you need to check when planning your wedding otherwise the world will explode!’ type articles on wedding blogs or magazines. And whilst I’m sure they have a good intent, they can have a tendency to focus on some pretty meaningless details, or just focus on the latest trends for that season. And if they’re not doing that, the sheer quantity of things you have to then think about seems to multiply at an alarming rate. And I’m pretty sure you’ve really already got quite a lot on your mind. …

My parents wedding album! Yikes, some scary stuff in there. Who knew my real Dad was Tom Selleck? To write about such a mustache would surely require several chapters, so I’ll put that aside for now.

When I found their album, I knew there were a few things that would naturally be different compared to wedding photographs today. There are more than two sides to this, maybe you can tell me which one is better…?

I think you and I prefer the more natural images of ourselves and others. It’s because we’re far more relaxed, involved with something besides photography, usually just enjoying ourselves.

So when you’re looking for someone to photograph something as important as your wedding day, you might look for someone with a candid approach, or someone who mostly takes candid images.

Because you don’t want to be feeling uneasy or over manipulated on a day where you’re meant to be celebrating with all your loved ones around you.

But I think it’s important to see the difference between something you might call a candid, over something you might associated with photojournalism (telling a story through images). As the difference is huge, and if you can see this, you’ll be a step closer to employing a photographer who’s work you love & trust, rather than merely like in patches….
