For many couples the photographer’s skills are the pivotal ones. Going with a great photographer “with a name” is often considered the safest way to get great wedding photos. I have already expressed my opinion about award winners and similar things, you can check that blog post here. But apart from awards, is it truly a photographer that can guarantee you’ll have dreamy pictures? Of course, a good photographer knows when it is the best moment to take pictures, when the light is better and when not, how to make you pose, where to put you to have a better backdrop. They use professional cameras, they can completely change a picture by using Photoshop and so on. Honestly, photographers are the magicians of wedding photos. But they aren’t that secret ingredient I’m talking about.
