One of the advantages of getting married at Chateau Le Parc is that the couple can use the bridal suites placed at the first level of the event space. Those two rooms are the perfect environment for wedding photography featuring a large windows, a mosaic backdrop, huge mirrors and a massive marble countertop, perfect for ring or other detail photographs the artist needs to take on the big day.
Our couple decided to get ready at their own houses and head towards the venue only for the wedding ceremony and reception. The main reason for that was the bride and groom wanted to have a first look in the photo shoot before the outdoor ceremony in the beautiful courtyard.
One of the most important things we have to remember as wedding photographers is not to interfere in the big day's events. We are guests invited to document the couple's special day and therefore, we cannot make everybody revolve around us. As I tell my second shooters, this is not a photo shoot, this is a wedding day.
I often attend wedding photography conventions in the Greater Toronto Area and discuss matters influencing our industry with local artists. Many of them, especially those old-school veterans are under the impression that the photographer is the director in charge of leading the events. In my opinion, nothing could be farther from the truth. In fact, in my career, I received feedback from plenty of customers who mentioned that what they loved that about us was our hands off, laid back, photojournalistic photography style.
Who wants to have the professional photographer dictate what happens next on the wedding day. However, things are a bit different when it comes to the parents of the couples. Often, the parents have a different vision of the special events and they want the more traditional approach to wedding photography.
Our duty as artists is to understand our client truly is. Ultimately, or client is the one who pays the bill and in many cultures that is the father of the bride.
