MISTAKES WHEN HIRING YOUR WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHERS IN GOA

Updated: Nov 24

Photographs help you relive your destination wedding in Goa years after you’ve closed the deal on ‘I do’. So getting a bunch of images you don’t really like can mean long-lasting regret. We’ve got a few ideas on what to look out for when finalising your wedding photographers in Goa.

NOT SHARING THE SCHEDULE

Even last-minute changes to your schedule must be shared with your wedding photographer. The amount of natural light coming at you from various angles changes during the day. Your photographer will need to know where you’ll be and what you’ll be doing throughout the course of your wedding. Keep them informed for perfect shots.

NOT GIVING THEM IDEAS OF WHAT YOU LIKE

Everyone has photographs of themselves they feel look photogenic, and others that don’t quite hit the spot. Discuss your preferred angles with your photographer. Better still, send them an image of yourself that you like, and one that you don’t like so they can avoid those angles of you in all your wedding photographs.

LEAVING YOUR GUESTS TO THEIR OWN DEVICES

Want the perfect family photo? You’ll need someone in charge of organising people. Entrust this job to a close friend who knows your family well. They will be able to help gather relatives whenever necessary so your family photo won’t be missing a truant nephew or a grandaunt left on the other side of the venue.

WAITING TOO LONG TO BOOK YOUR PHOTOGRAPHER

The best wedding photographers in Goa get snapped up quickly. If you find one you like, book them immediately. Photographers who are great at their work generally get booked more than a year in advance so lock them down as soon as you can. Remember to go through the details of their contract with them and pay their advances on time to avoid disappointments.

HIRING AN AMATEUR

Sometimes budget constraints can make you veer towards hiring a newbie. Do your research well. Not everyone with a digital camera and a website is a good photographer. Great wedding photographers in Goa have years of experience and can think on their feet. They offer consistent quality, rather than a one-off. Take another look at your finances and try to avoid cutting corners with your wedding photographer in Goa.

FORGETTING IMPORTANT ELEMENTS

There’ll be numerous details in your destination wedding in Goa that are important to you. Perhaps a friend baked celebratory cupcakes or made special hand accessories like haath phools for your girl squad. Or maybe you’re wearing jewellery handed down by a grandparent. Your photographer needs to know these details so they can take photographs of them. Remember to keep them out so they are not forgotten.

POSING ALL THE TIME

It’s your wedding day! Lighten up! You don’t need to look at the camera all the time and neither do you need to stare into the lens 24/7. A good wedding photographer in Goa will give you directions to get the best moments and looks. Try and be as natural as possible so you have fun while getting the most incredible shots during your destination wedding in Goa.
