One of the best advantages that a wedding photographer hertfordshire could ever have would be to have the wedding held in a location that plays up with a lot of different scenes and elements. Having the wedding held somewhere exotic like a beach brings in a lot of room for creative and romantic shots that just are not downright possible when the wedding is held somewhere traditional. More often than not, if it is a church wedding, the reception is always held somewhere else, like a restaurant or hotel; backdrops that are worlds of difference from the soft sands, gentle rolling waves, and the slightly tangy and salty breeze coming in from the sea.
Beach weddings have become popular for quite some time now but most future brides and grooms don’t really get to see the bang for their buck value for their money if they seriously consider this as an option. Most people would automatically think that since the really nice beaches are usually abroad and that means that they would have to travel away from the comforts of their own homes that it would just cost too much money but that is not always necessarily the case.
Here are a few advantages of having a beach wedding and how it will translate to a bride and groom’s wedding photography.
The photographer gets lots of natural light
Natural light is great for events such as weddings because it brings out the best of the subjects’ features when used accurately. There is something extremely beautiful about having a bride being filmed in all her wedding gown glory with the backdrop of the sea behind her. At the same time, the photographer needs to be extra skilled in this too. The light would have to be balanced out appropriately so that the subjects do not come off as looking washed out. It is all about exposure compensation. It also helps if the photographer shoots in Aperture Priority Mode.
Ceremony and reception rolled into one
Scouting the location becomes fairly easy for the photographer to familiarize with because the ceremony and reception are usually rolled into one. This means that the photographer just needs to familiarize him or herself with one location and it can be done all in the same day right before the event. It is always advised for the photographer to take a few practice shots to determine where the best spots are for posing and what settings his or her camera should be in so that the pictures produced come out looking beautiful and flawless.
Minimize the harsh light
A beach setting is usually sunny and although the sun can be a photographer’s best friend, it can also be his or her biggest foe. Bringing a deflector along will help minimize the harsh light brought on by too much sun and will make the images shot much crisper and clearer. There are multiple tones for deflectors and they each have different effects so far. A white deflector has a more neutral effect; it is perfect for just balancing out the harsh light from the sun. A silver deflector sort of brings an almost luminescent tone to the subjects’ skin tone while a gold deflector brings out a warmer skin tone effect.
