One of the questions we frequently get asked is ‘what about indoor photos?’ Rightfully so, a lot of couples fret about indoor photographs, and for two excellent reasons: most photographers showcase all their lovely outdoor scenes and also because the ceremony is either planned to be inside or is the back-up plan for weather.
Whether all of your day happens to be indoor, like Sarah and David (below) who happened to have a rainy day,or you just love some of the gorgeous features of your venue, it is always important to see indoor work from your photographer and just double-check they are comfortable photographing indoor.
We actually always bring a full lighting setup, to each wedding, to ensure our couples get the best light in every moment they share. From making certain the bridal photos, in the morning, are lit to provide the best glow, as she gets ready, to the ceremony, which is often dark, and even into those special custom creations we provide, as Goodnight photos, in the evening, we are always prepared for the occasion.
Some photographers choose to have natural light, such as the photo of Rich and Ellie, above. This is perfectly fine, as long as you ask about indoor photos, if they are important to you and your day. There are lots of techniques and asking is a great way to get to know about your photographer.
One time, during your day, that it is important to make sure your photographer will have lighting and/flash is for the evening moments. We’ve had everything from Swift moving salsa to the groom playing in the band, to I Believe in a Thing Called Love and all of these depended on us getting to know the couple, their day,the venue and what lighting to provide. We set it up prior to the moment, so you have nothing to stress about and can enjoy the moment.
So so whether you love the intricat details of your gorgeous venue, want to capture the joy of your friends and family whilst inside or have another reason, there’s no need to worry about indoor photos. As longs as you discuss it with the photographer you are considering, you can rest assured you can have just as gorgeous of photographs indoor as outdoor. So many small spaces can create perfect moments, they are just waiting to be captured.
We hope this helped ease any stress or answer questions about indoor photographs, on your day, but if you have any further questions or want to share ideas, please leave a comment or get in touch. We would love to hear from you.
