Truth is, you can’t not trust your photographer and still get great photos. You can get good photos, and you might even like them, but to truly love your wedding photos — a higher level of trust isn’t just suggested, it’s required. I’m reminded of a quote by Ansel Adams “The single most important component of a camera is the twelve inches behind it.” You have to trust the person behind the camera. You have to believe that they know what they’re doing. Couples should trust that they know the lighting, their equipment, poses and everything in between. If they say “this isn’t going to work,” you have to be know that person well enough to be able to work through it and that what they’re saying is a fact, not just their opinion.
I feel like trust is the absolute best gift you can give your photographer. Trust them to help you set the pace for your timeline and then enough to listen when they ask you to do something. There’s always method to our madness, a reason for our requests. While it might not make sense at the time, just know that we wouldn't be asking if it wasn't to get the perfect shot. #sofiseckphotography
