KNOWING THE BACKGROUND
A wedding photojournalist’s goal is to guarantee that you remember the day vividly for years to come. To make sure they don’t miss a moment with anyone special to you, particularly older relatives who may be present for only part of the event, many photographers like to do a bit of reconnaissance beforehand.
By bringing your photographer up to speed on the family tree and which branches you’d like memorialized, it allows them to better prepare for your event. Photojournalists are experts at identifying and predicting family dynamics, and this important information will open up more opportunities for capturing cherished moments.
In today’s breakneck world, occasions for multi-generational gatherings are rare. Which is why a wedding is a perfect place to gather your loved ones and weave together all their hopes and dreams. Your photojournalist understands the import of this tapestry, and will skillfully document the people who matter to you most.
The goal, of course, is to depict a memory that will live on. One day you will be flipping through that wedding book with your grandkids. And certain pictures will stir up memories for you; particularly ones with relatives who have passed on. What a wonderful opportunity that will be to share a treasured family story with the younger generation.
