Understanding Wedding Special Traditions And Customs
As there are many different styles of photography that photographers specialize in, one of the most important things to take into consideration when choosing a wedding photographer is their understanding of special traditions and customs that may exist in your family. When choosing a Chinese wedding photographer, do make sure that they have a clear understanding of the special events that they need to capture in relation to the customs of the wedding ceremony and make the difference between a couple being happily overwhelmed and regretfully disappointed.
Traditional Chinese Values
The Chinese wedding has been influenced by many Western traditions, but regardless of the western influence, there are some things that remain tied to traditional Chinese values. Having a discussion with your Chinese wedding photographer about the customs and traditions that the couple absolutely wants captured is essential to a good relationship with your photographer. If the tea ritual is something that you would like heavily documented, make sure you let the photographer know this is what you want. Also making the photographer aware of the importance of the color red is essential to getting the images that you desire. This can be done with spot color, or avoiding heavy shots of black and white photography.
Importance Of Numbers And Symbols
An important thing to also remember in Chinese wedding photography is the importance of even numbers and the symbolism of the Dragon and the Phoenix. Having a photographer that understands the importance of these things is essential. Whereas a contemporary photographer might take more photographs that are centered around the bride and groom, a professional Chinese wedding photographer will understand that the Chinese wedding process is a series of events that is heavily influenced by their family. This understanding will give the photographer insight that they have to consider capturing the family’s influence on the union of the bride and groom.
Work Scope And Preparation
In a Chinese wedding, there are many venue changes and dress changes for the bride. Being versatile and understanding that the Chinese wedding photographer will be taking an abundance of images to make sure they en-capture the entire day is an understatement. From the hairdressing ceremony to the reception and customs that will follow it, understanding that the job of a Chinese wedding photographer is no small task will set the proper expectations when negotiating what will be included in the wedding photography pricing package and what rates are reasonable to expect.
Involvement Of Photographer And Families
Always remember that when choosing the right photographer for your wedding if it is a Chinese wedding ceremony, do keep your family involved in the process, as the custom and tradition of the Chinese wedding is literally the joining of two families. Knowing exactly what you want and how involved you want the photographer to be on your special day, and outline specific photographs that are essential to be included in the photographs that they take. Also, if there are events that you do not like documented, state this too, so that the photographer understands what they should capture and what they shouldn’t. Setting the correct expectation will provide you an abundance of images to capture your special day, and memories to last a lifetime.
