@emorelia:  I have one photographer – can she capture both me going down the aisle and FI looking at me?  Since she can’t simultaneously shoot both of us, spis a first look the best option here?  What are some of the things we should know about having one photographer versus two?  Different angles/perspectives?

@emorelia:  There are already a lot of full time professionals on here that offer advice on a regular basis to bees.

What exactly is it that a photographer does with the pictures following the event that takes months to complete? From the shots my photog showed me on his camera, it looked like the vast majority of the gauzy/soft lighting effect was coming from the lens, camera setting and how he/she took the shots. The “edits” appear identical to the raw.

How do you get great shots ofcouples who are uncomfortable or awkward infant of the camera?

how do you get them to loosen up so that they don’t have stiff and awkward poses?

 

I’m worried about this happening to me lol

@continuumphotography:  I’m confused – why are you discouraging a bee helping other bees?  It’s not even your thread.

@emorelia:  You really don’t need to apologize to her.  She was out of line.

is there a rule that other bees can’t give  helpful advice to others?? Is there a monopoly ?

 

i think it was wonderful of her to offer her time to answer questions on a very important part of a wedding. 

 

Im sure other bees appreciated your photography advice when you offer. I just don’t thi k you should be discouraging others from helping. the whole purpose of the boards is to help each other.

My photographer is a family friend, they are also only an ammateur photographer,  they do it on the side, they also have a full time job beside photography. So  100% of the money I am paying goes straight to their pocket, do I still need to tip and if so how much is acceptable?

I was recently in a wedding as a bridesmaid and the photographer who was also an ammateur, kind of irritated me. he who constantly ask the bride what picture do you want know, how do you want to stand/sit/etc. youre the photographer you tell me, do i need to give my photographer a must list and does it need to be detailed? also can i tell my photographer to be more aggresive? i want them telling people where to stand, not me.
