The wedding photos selection:



Many couples ask me how many pictures they can see after passing the wedding day. 
I have no exact answer to that question. You can, for experience, approach, estimating a volume of images. I think the correct question would be: How many good pictures we'll have to see.

Whatever the selected photographic plan is, note that any photographer can take pictures of nothing. Time is needed, environmental conditions, experience and ability to be adjusting the work plan at the moment and this will give results in a volume of images varied and appropriate for the composition of his book or individual photos, if that were the case.


Regularly we place the files with a watermark and a number online, so the couple can afford to see them from anywhere there is internet.

a)First check all the images and get an idea of the different aspects of their wedding reflected in them (makeup, preparatory time, the groom with his friends, the ceremony, relatives and the couple moments after the ceremony, cocktail hour, reception and photos of a previous section if any). 

b) Define the scope of your choice (many photos) elect and make a first selection. We regularly go beyond the limits and then start the reflective process of the second stage of selection. 
"Who and when is in the photo, which represents that image in the set. Aim to define which photo you like black and white or other treatment. 

c)If you have questions about an image, ask your photographer before giving the final list. He must know that you will want more in a dilemma because him possibly have handled this situation before.

d)Finally provide your list and wait for the photographer design your album, depending on the chosen photographic style, the size of the album and most importantly: YOU CAN READ IN THE PHOTO BOOK THE STORY OF YOUR WEDDING DAY.

After hiring the photographer

Then you start a new process based on communication.                                                                                

-Tell your photographer what are your expectations. With that you ever dreamed photos (show some examples), may eventually any of your photos look like these samples but will guide who made the photographs of your wedding.

-Provide trust the photographer during your planning process; remember that the wedding day will be he who will give you confidence and peace.

-Provide information about the program activities of your wedding. Be generous with time to spare for photos after the ceremony, when even the makeup of marriage and emotions are still fresh.

-Provide food to those working at your wedding. When it comes to superior coverage at 5 am, you must prevent the supply of liquid refreshment and some of these people who have been with you from the makeup to the reception.

"The next step will be, after the wedding, waiting for proofs to be enjoyed and select those that will be used to prepare the delivery format previously selected.

To Getting married on the beach.


To get married on the beach you must be a free spirit. If you like the sensation of feeling your feet wet with sea spray and if you like the sound of waves crashing against the coast, then you may be ready for a beach wedding.

If you want a wedding photographer located in the chosen destination for the wedding, is almost certainly going to start and end online. Type the name of your destination on Google and followed by the word photographer or wedding photographer, Google will give you several options at once.

Once you've found some one online with a portfolio that catches your attention, or have a style that suits your personality, make contact by email and find out what the photographer can offer you. While not a perfect test, this first contact will give you an idea of the type of photographer who is trying, and this may help in your decision.

At day's end, you have to choose a photographer whose work inspires and whose personality you feel comfortable and relaxed. He should be as relaxed as you should be to get married on the beach.

Hiring a wedding photographer

Really delicate to decide on the photographer to use for our wedding, previously without knowing the person, experience and the empathies levels  to obtain between the couple and the photographer. There is no doubt that hotel photographers have a major location handling, but they always doesn't have the time to catch the photo dynamic of each couple in particular. The  hotel based photographers can work to much better prices than these come from outside, but their services are limited by the their work nature: fast delivery and the weddings volume  to be cover.
Therefore, the differences to which to pay attention at the  deciding time: to establish a basic budget for photography, to know the photo style wished, to obtain data about photographers availabilities in the area in which you will be going away to marry, to obtain data of the person who finally you are interested to use and to listen the references of those which have used that service before.
Finally, take time to decide what photos you wish to have.
A wedding never is repeated!.

Put distance between you and the marriage emotion. Finally, when you find the photographer give to him or her you support explaining what do you wish.
Do not forget: if the couple need the photographers confidence, they needs smiles from you.

Retardation, the change of plans from beach to garden, day to night, sun shine to hard rain. And the really excellent thing: that the even benefit of its moment, instead of being a problem You like main photographer are the one ready for find out the solution touch in the right moment.

For that reason, many pairs choose a relative for their photos or deal with a very high level of tension until the moment for being sure that selected person works so well or at least takes suitable unfolding in front of them and the guests.
We are no simple photographer shooting wedding, also it has value of being a partner of the pair that hire us for its special moment.

Photography in Springtime wedding


Juan Guzman
If you are planning a spring wedding and you like to include nice flowers with vibrant petals in outdoor location, candles to give it a soft romantic look, get married a bit later in the day, in this way you have light day and candles working out in the continuing natural light transformation from blue/yellow sunset color dominance to candles light into night. Really romantic in all!.
Photographers like vibrant color. Try greens mixed wit deep red or strong pink and gold in companion dress or table and centerpieces decor.
Every season change the photo work scheme. Spring is not different. April-May-June, coming with particular and unpredictable weather. If you setup everything indoor, don´t worry, but for outdoor will be nice think in plan B working out in case of rain.
Wedding in spring can be great for every aspect in special for photography (elegant, romantic, vivid), life coming with natural colored world, clear sky, brilliant sunset and candles light. Couple with a good wedding photographic staff (experience and ready for switch too fast in unpredictable changes), finally go to get successful spring wedding day

Wedding Photographer tools

Juan Guzman
As a Wedding Photographer we are expected to be both an artist, technician, business person and a sensitive human being. If you like something more: Master of Ceremonies, arbitrator and that confidence one so close so far in the same time. After have purchased or rented suitable backup gear and be all knowing of photographic equipment, their idiosyncrasies and purpose. Strong in studio portraiture so we need to know about lighting and facial size, proportion, angles and layouts. To know lighting, ceremony places paths, its rules, the Officiate....keeping main in the reception beforehand. Preparation - Training - Business Sense - and most important of all sense of humor is a good start. BRIDES: Your wedding photographs may have to reflect a diversification of interests and taste. The entire wedding market has no totally embraced PJ efforts and there are still many out there who are traditionalists and classics. Photographer experience, guides, inspiration, equipment, everything help keep things on track. As long as you stay on track things go well. That will be PRO-Photographer goal.
