Fife Wedding Photography: The Perfect Location, The Perfect Record
Are you currently planning a wedding in Fife? Finding the right photographer for your big day is essential, of course. Taking great images is not only about providing a record of the days events (anyone can do that) but helping those emotional, romantic and personal moments shine through. Fife is the perfect location for a wedding. Steeped in history, sublimely beautiful countryside and with every corner tinged with romance, there’s no better place in the world to get married. That’s why you should make sure your Fife wedding photography also matches your expectations for one of the most important days in your life.
Fife Wedding Photography: Why Location is Important
The backdrop to your wedding day is one of the most difficult decisions you will make. The good news is Fife has everything: Brilliant castles, romantic woodland, and amazing beaches. And that’s just for a start! From Dunfermline and Kirkcaldy to Crail and St Andrews, it’s easy to find an amazing location that really fits your personality. While you’re choosing where to get married, it’s a good idea to also think about your Fife wedding photography. Who is going to do it for you? The last thing you want is to find your favourite photographer is booked up and not available. Or you’ve not got the right person to match your big day.
How to Plan the Photos for Your Wedding Day
The truth is most couples leave the photography for their big day to the photographer. While this isn’t a bad thing, it all depends on who you’ve invited to record everything. Of course, you should take a look at their portfolio first. But that shouldn’t stop you from making certain you actually get the final images that you want. For example, while the reception might take place in a brilliant location like St Andrew’s Golf Course, you may want to create some personal images that mean something different. It could be a location that is important to you and your future spouse or a style of image that you find really attractive.
A great wedding photographer should be able to iron all these things out before you get round to shooting the day itself. There may be things that you haven’t thought about at all. That’s why it’s essential to sit down with your Fife wedding photographer well before the big day arrives. This all helps your professional photographer too! After all, they’re not psychic. Planning helps organise the day better and makes sure you get the images that really tell the story of your Fife wedding. Gone are the days of traditional bride and groom images with family and friends around.
While these are important, they are not the only images that you are going to want. The wedding couples I work with nowadays have much higher production values. And, why shouldn’t they? You want to have a fantastic record of your day and you want a photographer who not only understands their medium but can deliver exceptional portraits, candid moments and images that illicit wonderful memories. Ideally, you should be thinking about your Fife wedding photography from the moment you book your venue. If that’s you, it’s time to start leafing through websites, searching for the perfect artistic partner and someone who is going to truly do your big day justice.
