And why do they want you to “copy cat” all the other brides?
Breaking news: They’ve finally redefined the word “unique” to make it mean “ordinary” and “typical” – when it comes to your wedding photos.
I was looking at a popular well known wedding site and they were asking a NYC wedding photographer how a bride can get unique photos of her day.
Her professional advice? Find a “really cool graffiti wall.” And, “stand in front of it”.
Seriously? Isn’t this graffiti wall thing a shot we’ve ALL seen only a gazillion times before? It’s become such a cliché – I wouldn’t exactly call any of these “unique”. Would you?
Part of the problem is the well-meaning but “follow-the-herd” mind set coming from many wedding photographers on the scene today. They’re lovely people yet when it comes to their grasp of what makes a meaningful wedding photo a bride or groom can call uniquely their own, if that’s what they think makes a wedding photo unique, if those are their best ideas, then they’re thinking mere “snapshots“…
…and I can tell you they either haven’t attained a deep enough understanding of what it means to truly document a person’s historical day uniquely – or merely seek to corral you to get you to buy into their common routine fare.
Either way, there’s exists something far better than a graffiti wall that you should really know about if you care about your wedding photos…
Which is why I wrote down my 7 essential tips that actually will make your wedding photos unique.
Working with hundreds of brides and grooms and seeing first hand what does mean something to them in their photos has given me insights. True, I also have the advantage of brides writing me on their anniversaries because they wanted to thank me again and tell me how their wedding photos have become even more significant to them with the passing of time – and why it’s so. In other words, these insights are time tested and proven.
So I’ve gleaned tons of aha! moments out of all this experience – and I’m going to share some of those lightbulb moments with you now.
Some couples may not care about this information. That’s okay. Those are the ones who prefer to “follow the crowd” and do the same things others do. They copy the kind of lightweight fluff you see on wedding web sites and bridal magazines. Impersonal stuff. To tell you the truth, not every bride gives her photos top priority. I’m not making any judgments here… to each their own… but they’re the ones that usually end up with the same “rubber stamped” cookie cutter wedding pictures as others do. Like getting yet another graffiti wall shot.
Instead, this is insight and ideas for discerning couples who seek something more desirable and personalized out of their wedding photos. These tips I’ve personally discovered are anything but routine – and will make a significant difference in how you experience your wedding day as well.
