Wedding photography is a very stressful and competitive field.
Wedding photographers spend sleepless nights planning for a wedding coverage, browsing through hundreds of wedding photos and editing the flaws in those photos. Wedding photography isn’t at all an easy job. This already demanding lifestyle is further burdened when wedding photographers encounter situations or people who make their job even more stressful by demanding and doing certain things. Here are things wedding photographers hate.
The first is, changing the time and place of the wedding and forgetting to inform them.
Wedding photographers spend weeks planning for your wedding shoot. They have already laid out a meticulous schedule that will grant them the perfect natural light or location to shoot your wedding photos. Changing the venue or time causes that plan to crumble and become useless. If you don’t inform them ahead of time, the probable effect would be they’ll arrive late, be disoriented, unmotivated and ultimately uninspired to take your wedding photos. They’ll be forced to scrap the initial plan and make inconvenient improvisations in order to for an output to be delivered. If this happens, don’t expect to get the wedding photos you planned beforehand. Another thing they hate is the indecisive client. A client who keeps changing styles is irritating. Wedding photography requires careful planning in order to get the best results. A client who continually changes minds makes it difficult for wedding photographers to create concrete plans for the wedding photography. Not having a concrete plan leads to not having any idea what to do or what to cover during the wedding proper. If you’re planning on hiring a documentary wedding photographer for your wedding, please make up your mind and have a plan ready. Your documentary wedding photographer will be very grateful if you do.
Another crime wedding photographers hate is being too demanding.
Yes, you are paying them to get the job done but if the job you are insisting that they will do is impossible don’t expect to have it done. If you demand a wedding photo shoot in the middle of shark infested waters all because you wish to show your dangerous side, expect not find any wedding photographers who will take the job. Wedding photographers have the right to say no. They don’t want to do it, but they will if you get too demanding. It is alright if you have difficult demands, wedding photographers will see it as a challenge.
Just make sure, it doesn’t go over top.
They value their life more than your wedding photo. Lastly, probably the most hated thing by wedding photographers is when their clients refuse to communicate and cooperate with them. There is not nothing worse than having clients nod along when you are having a shoot and start screaming murder when they receive the wedding photos. Wedding photographers wish to avoid you being unsatisfied with their work. But they can’t do that if you won’t tell them what you find unsatisfying about their work. Talk with your documentary wedding photographer and share ideas. No doubt he’ll appreciate the gesture and you might find yourself at the receiving end of a great discount.
