A wedding is perhaps one of the most memorable moments in a couples’ life. Choosing the best photographer possible should be one of the highest priorities. No matter how well-planned and gorgeous a wedding might be, if the greatest moments are not caught on camera, there is no history of the event to evoke the best moments. Mango Studios of Ottawa, approaches each wedding photography shoot with an eye towards capturing the best moments in the most artistic and flattering way possible.
Although a plan might be in place as to number of wedding shots and locations, flexibility is needed.
Each couple goes through a consultation period where venues are discussed, and the number and location of wedding pictures will be taken. However, spontaneous shots also can occur, as both the couple themselves, the wedding party if there is one, and the guests are all human, and act spontaneously many times. A great moment for a picture opportunity may crop up at any moment, and a good photographer will act quickly to capture these. An artistic and spontaneous sense and attitude therefore should be sought when choosing a wedding photographer. Cherished moments are not always planned!
Wedding venues and locations count a great deal also when seeking perfect wedding photography.
Some couples choose a venue to host both the ceremony and the celebration dinner afterwards. Others seek a venue for the service alone and then choose a different venue in a different location for the dinner or celebration. It is immensely helpful to any photographer if both venues have great natural lighting, neither too dark nor too light. Too dark lighting will present a need for a photographer to enhance the lighting, while too light of a venue may cast shadows or halos in a picture. Both scenarios do require a wedding photographer with a great skill set. Natural lighting that is soft and non-glaring yet not dim is best. Many wedding photographers that are seasoned professionals like Mango Studios will use speedlights. Speedlights are a type of flash that sits on top of a camera and can enhance lighting according to the dimensions and adjustments a photographer sets up.
Speedlights are used by wedding photographers for many reasons.
Some of the reasons are to diffuse too strong a natural light, while at other times they are used to increase the lighting, especially in banquet style celebration venues which generally can seek to create a darker atmosphere to increase ambience. There is also increased control of photographs, especially the backgrounds, as the speedlights can have gel added, aiding in the overall look of the pictures. This equipment is also portable and affordable, and they enhance the life of a camera’s battery power.
Wedding photography is special just as every couple is special.
Choosing wisely will ensure that all precious moments are captured in the best manner possible. There is no shortage of photographers, but when it comes to a wedding, the best that is affordable should be chosen. Hiring the cheapest does not always produce the results a couple needs or wants and now Ottawa has Mango Studios to assist
