Reasons Why You Don't Need to Present Your Wedding Photographer with a Shotlist

Your wedding is a once in a lifetime event! With elements that are personalized to your celebration, from your lovely floral arrangements to your beautiful linens, each detail will be unique to you and your big day. Therefore, your photos should be too!

Through photography, you can preserve the special memories from your big day! However, not just any photography will do.

We believe that the preservation of your memories should be creative! That’s why, here at Joseph Hummel Photography, we have gathered some reasons as to why you don’t need to present your own wedding photographer with a shotlist. If you would like to learn what these reasons are, be sure to continue reading:

  • Organic Emotions. Your wedding photos should be full of emotion! Therefore, you should let your big day unfold naturally, while your photographer captures it. If you provide a shotlist to your photographer, that will have them focusing on those specific photos, meaning that special moments that are presenting themselves could be missed. So, let your big day run its course, so that you can receive an array of organic and emotion-filled images.

  • Trust. You have hired a professional photographer to capture your big day for a reason…because they are a professional! With a passion and dedication to their trade, your wedding photographer’s goal is to ensure that you cherish each and every photo captured. Therefore, you should certainly have confidence in their abilities. Trust your photographer, and know that they will capture every photo desired on your wedding day.

  • Formals. While you will want to avoid presenting a shotlist to your photographer on your wedding day, you will still want to ensure that you have formal photos captured. Therefore, yes, let your photographer know who you would like to be photographed with, such as formal portraits with your parents. This way, no loved ones will go without recognition throughout your wedding photo collection.

Through photography, you have the opportunity to look back on your big day fondly! These are just a few reasons as to why you don’t need to present your own wedding photographer with a shotlist.
