The Garden Wedding Photographer’s Role

Another reason to hire a professional Garden Wedding Photographer in Sussex, rather than trusting a family member or a friend with the task, is it they will be less distracted. The professional photographer wonít be striving to enjoy the day and become part of the celebration, like a family member would want to do.

They won’t miss that crucial loving moment because they’re eating cake, downing a beer, or chatting with wedding guests. They will be concentrating on the job of getting the best possible pictures they can for your wedding.

Another thing to bear in mind is that wedding guests tend to respond to photoshoots better when they are being arranged by professional Garden Wedding Photographers. When family members are taking control of a family photo session it tends to be taken less seriously.

The Garden Wedding Photography Style

If you are looking for photography that captures a certain style, then you should hire a photographer that is proficient in that style. How many amateurs do you think are even aware of the differences between fine art, contemporary, traditional, or photojournalistic photography styles?

Can an amateur photographer capture photos the way you want them? Often, this is not the case. Take a bit of time to understand what it is you want and then hire a photographer that can deliver that style. Go with a professional garden wedding photographer who can quickly understand what it is you are trying to achieve.

A Reliable and Communicative Professional

A professional garden wedding photographer really is a better choice than going for an amateur relative or enthusiast friend in most cases and there are lots of other reasons why. You shouldnít underestimate the wealth of experience the professional brings in dealing with the various challenges of the big day.

A professional Garden Wedding Photographer will be able to communicate effectively and persuasively with guests to ensure they are where they need to be. They will use body language and verbal messages, without imposing on your guests, to run through the necessary formalities whilst enhancing the celebration of your wedding day in Sussex. An amateur photographer, no matter how much effort they put in, will not be able to maintain a balance between the necessary distance, humour, intimacy and support while still getting the perfect shots.

You Get More with Professional Garden Wedding Photographers

There arenít many people that you will spend more time on your wedding day than your Garden Wedding Photographer. From the shots of you getting ready and preparing to go to church all the way to the moment you leave the wedding venue, the photographer is there.

Your Garden Wedding Photographer is always near you, having been engaged to capture the emotion and style of your day in its entirety. Good Garden Wedding Photographers will only be noticed when they need to organise a photo session. The photographer is the one who notices every detail out of place such as lipstick stains on the teeth, or wonky button holes etc.

The photographer will ensure that the wedding party are at the right place at the right time and calm everyone throughout any anxious or emotional moments.

The Epitome of Patience

Your Garden Wedding Photographer should be professional and help you relax throughout the day. This is a person you are going to be around a great deal on one of the most special days of your life. You donít want to spend all that time second-guessing your decision.

Good Time Keeping and Professional Standards

You can be reassured that the photographer will be professional by researching their reputation, their previous work and their passion for what they do. Your Garden Wedding Photographer should remain polite and courteous at all times, demonstrating a great attitude, good time keeping for every aspect of the schedule and remaining suitably attired throughout the day. Your Garden Wedding Photographer should arrive before they need to, so that they can get a feel for the venues and the best places to get the shots that you desire.

The Wedding Rehearsal on the Day Before the Wedding

Church wedding ceremonies normally have the custom of a wedding rehearsal a day or two before the wedding. The Garden Wedding Photographer ask to come to the wedding day rehearsal to scout the location and to find out from the Vicar where they should be standing throughout the service. If you choose to have a civil ceremony, then it will most likely be a chat with a registrar on the day of the wedding in Sussex.

The Wedding

Your Garden Wedding Photographer will tend to arrive to take photos of the bridal presentations, the timings will have been agreed. He will be there for the rest of the day but will not interrupt the flow in any way. The goal at Jeff Woodall photography is to ensure that every precious moment is captured, but to remain unobtrusive and in the background until such a time as you have questions to answer, or you need some help. Itís crucial to the team at Jeff Woodall photography that every precious memory is captured on camera and that we remain unobtrusive, so the day can play out naturally; we are of course available for any questions and we strive to raise the spirits of everyone in the party.

At a certain time in the evening, usually after the first dance, your photographer will approach you to see if thereís anything else you would like him to capture. If you are satisfied that your photographer has captured the day, he will begin the process of backing up all of the photos. Every photo will be stored on a reliable backup storage device and kept safe until such a time as the photos have been through the full editing process and have been delivered to you to your satisfaction. We never underestimate the value of your photographs.

Getting Your Garden Wedding Photos Edited

Editing the images is an important part of preparing your garden wedding photography package, completed in the days after the wedding event in Sussex. The photographs need to tell the story of the wedding day and so the first stage is going through all the pictures and selecting the best ones. The pictures that have been chosen, then go through a subtle editing approach, with light touches to enhance the images.

If you want to share access to your wedding photos on your own online gallery, weíll give you instructions on how to do so, as well as providing a high-definition backup of all your photos on a USB stick.

Here to help after event

Jeff Woodall photography will be available for everything else you need; to talk about albums, or the types of bespoke garden wedding photo books that can be designed for you.

Number of hours for the shoot in Sussex

Each assignment a photographer takes is normally broken down into a number of hours. With weddings, we understand that exact timings and schedule are very individual and that they need to go with the flow of your day. We need to be flexible and so we tend to take a different approach to pricing our wedding packages.

If you have looked around already, then you probably know that photographers frequently have different packages that they offer such as a ëPlatinumí, ëgoldí, ëSilverí and a ëBronzeí package in Sussex. What exactly gets delivered becomes complicated, especially in those cases where additional options are added to these package deals. When you choose me, you get a fixed price for the day, with no hidden extras. Iím yours for the day and won’t mind doing the odd extra hour and won’t be clock-watching. We donít want to bill you an extra hour or two after the wedding because it didn’t go exactly to schedule and the package you pay for didn’t have enough hours. For wedding ceremonies that are a long way away and need significant travel or even flights, there would be some negotiation required over accommodation, fuel, flights, food and refreshments.

Wedding photography Services List

Below is a summary list of wedding photography services :

A Look at the Differences in Styles

Fine Art Photography

In the same way that photographers of a photojournalistic genre don’t tend to take traditional shots very often, fine arts photographers rarely do either. They prefer to take an artistic view and capture elements, events and people with that mindset, always looking for dramatic lighting and backgrounds. The Fine Art photographer in Sussex prefers to pack their photos with art and drama, often using black and white as a filter.

Vintage Style Photography

Vintage photo filters have become quite popular over the last decade and has resulted in more demand for this style of photography. More and more couples are choosing vintage wedding photography as their wedding style for their photographs. This style of photography can evoke feelings of nostalgia and the old and timeless nature of that style really seems to appeal to people. Vintage photography in Sussex is regarded as almost an art form, where the ordinary is transformed into stunning evocative images using colour filters and specialist lighting.

Traditional or Classical

With traditional or classical photography, nearly every picture is considered to be a posed portrait, even those moments that may appear to be more spontaneous. You’re less likely to get action shots with this type of photography, although every moment will be captured in a natural way that doesn’t feel forced or posed. The aim of traditional photography is to capture moments with dignity and artistry, using many posed shots, including many formal images, under a range of lighting options.

Photojournalistic or Reportage

Similar to a documentary style, photojournalism photography is about recording the event, rather than orchestrating them. The formal shots you would expect at every wedding, will be captured, as well as group and individual ëgrip and griní wedding guest shots. Photojournalistic photographers prefer to capture spontaneous emotions and reactions, often by the use of close ups and candid techniques, they have a general philosophy of freezing that authentic moment in time, rather than creating orchestrated poses and scenes.

Black and White (Monochrome)

The black and white style is excellent for creating nostalgic and timeless photographs. Colour images are preferred by some clients, while some appreciate how the mood of their photos can be enhanced by the desaturation of colours. Preference is what matters here. Using monochrome can enhance pictures by helping the subject and composition of photos really come to life. Sometimes colour can fail to portray the atmosphere of a photo, where monochrome techniques can really bring it to life.

Colour Popped and HDR Techniques

When shooting pictures, this photography technique requires attention to detail and the ability to consider various different elements and this complexity continues into the editing stage. This technique of photography [ HDR / colour popped] involves picking the right scenes and the right processing software to create highly appealing photographs with colours that pop and stunning detail that is striking for the viewer.
