Wedding Photographers Cork
Wedding Photographers Cork: So here we are. You’ve got engaged, booked your wedding reception spot, eyed multiple attire options, picked your wedding invitations and finally looked for your special someone…
Your wedding photographer!
However, after a few meetings with potential candidates, do you feel lost? Do you struggle with understanding their language? No worries, that’s what we are here for.
Let us help you comprehend wedding photographers’ glossary to make your life a little easier.
#1 What is a wedding reportage or documentary?
This type of wedding photography spins around preserving your day minute by minute. It is unposed and candid. It captures the most pure and beautiful emotions as they happen. Sometimes your wedding photographer would ask you to smile or look directly into the lens though.
#2 What is the E-Shoot?
You are well aware of engagement photo shoots. What is more, you are likely to have one already planned. The e-shoot isn’t some kind of Internet-based photo shoot. It is basically a fancy term for the pre-wedding or engagement shoot.
#3 What are candids?
Candids are strictly connected with wedding reportage or documentary. They are shots taken without the knowledge of the bride, groom or other wedding reception parties. The huge merit of this type of photography is its natural aspect, showing true colours of the people.
#4 What is first look photography?
First look photography is all about bride and groom sharing the first glimpse of each other in wedding attire, right before the wedding ceremony. If you want to know more about this kind of shoot, discover our latest blog posts [link].
#5 What are the RAWs?
RAWs aren’t the unedited pictures as most people think. RAW is a file format provided by top notch cameras. The files are very big because they contain additional information, which enhances the final product of the editing process. However, such files can only be processed and edited using professional software, so asking your wedding photographer for these types of files in order to edit them yourselves is pointless.
We hope we managed to help you and dispelled any of your doubts. However, bear in mind that it is OK to ask your potential wedding photographers any questions, even those regarding the glossary they use. Don’t be intimidated, they are there to help you.
