Most couples understandably look at the portfolio of prospective wedding photographers when shopping for that one guy or firm who will cover their big day. But one overlooked aspect in choosing a wedding photographer is the communication skills of the photographer. A photography expert who is a good communicator can make it easier for his subjects to smile, especially the two most important persons during the wedding day—the groom and bride.
Getting a feel of a photographer’s communication skills begins with the initial meeting. Couples should spend the interview not just to learn more about the experience of the prospective wedding photographer, but also to get an impression on how good a communicator the photography expert is. Does the photographer maintain eye-to-eye contact throughout the interview? Can he impart an idea rather easily? These are just some of the things couples should be conscious of when interviewing a potential wedding photographer.
Photographers from reputable firms like www.danielsheehan.com.au are trained in communicating well with their clients. They are taught how to listen and pay attention to non-verbal cues of their clients, so that they know when the groom is tired, or when the bride is not in a mood to smile. They are also trained to get the attention of their clients, as well as the guests.
