Before the invention of video camera, men only have normal photo-taking cameras to capture the wonderful moments of life.
Even with the invention of video cameras, I realised that we seldom watch the wedding video. Guests easily get bored with lengthy or poorly produced wedding videos.
However, interestingly you realised that people love flipping through wedding albums and the wedding photographs are the ones which help to tell the wedding stories of the wedding couples even though they were just still shots of that particular moment.
This is exactly what I look for from the work of a real wedding photographer.
Again, everyone of us has different preference and it will be wise to choose the photographer of the style that you like.
At styleweddings.sg, I found the site of “Gabriel Mendes Photography”. I contacted the photographer, Gabriel who was very kind to share with us some of his best photos.
One thing in his “About Me” page in his blog caught my attention.
It says “My style is all about capturing the fun and romance in an unique, exciting way ? isn?t what a wedding should be all about?”
I myself take photos too and I enjoyed capturing moments of life. This should be what you may probably be looking for in your wedding photographer, someone who loves doing what he does and at the same time, having fun.
With fun and passion, the photographer will produce very good work.
In addition, the photographer must be able to be sharp and alert at all times to capture the different fun moments that will slip past every now and then.
I remembered a bride emailed me telling me her wedding photographer was having a good time eating his food from the lunch buffett and talking to her sisters. Oh my! How “professional”?
The frustrating thing is that this photographer is her hubby’s friend and she found it hard to confront him.
Anyway back to Gabriel, as I was looking through his wedding photographs that he took, it seemed to be that the wedding couples and his other clients who he had been working with were delighted with his work.
You can look at the smiles, not on the wedding couples, but the children. In my own opinion, children are the hardest clients to work with because they are the most truthful. If they don’t like the photographer, who they see as another adult, they won’t smile.
As I was browsing through Gabriel’s blog, it seemed to me he had taken many photographs of children and toddlers.
Remember that a wedding photographer has to take photos of both adults and children on your wedding day. You would need to find one who love to work with children too if your relatives have many children who make wonderful objects for photography.
Again, what you see in this post shouldn’t determine whether you want to engage Gabriel or any other photographer.
Always call the photographer and talk to him in person. Arrange an appointment to meet up with them and you may even want to have a chat with their clients if you see any at their photo studios.
