We love discovering local vendors for our brides and one of our favourite types to explore are photographers. From traditional, editorial, contemporary or fashion photographers, we love them all and just can't seem to get enough.
This month we sat down with Aron Goss, owner of Calculated Style Photography (in Milton, Ontario) to find out just what makes him tick as a professional wedding photographer.
We asked Aron this simple question: What are some things you want your clients to know about you?
Aron's answer: A few things I want clients to know about me (and wedding photography in general) are:
- This is my full time job and your wedding photography deserves the attention only a professional can truly deliver.
- Wedding photography is completely different from any other photography industry. While you might have a friend that takes incredible pictures, you only have one chance to walk down the aisle and if the shot is missed, it cannot be recreated. Professional wedding photographers know how to pose a crowd, work with any situation you might deal with, have back up equipment and can shoot in low light. I would really recommend whomever you decide to have capture your wedding, that they be prepared to handle these situations.
- I want to make sure my images stand the test of time. Your wedding images should be proudly displayed on the walls of your house for the rest of your lives. I worry that the trendy processing a lot of photographers are using at the moment will look rather dated in five or ten years down the road.
- I stress to any couple searching for a wedding photographer to insist that their potential photographers show them a few full weddings. Anyone can get lucky with a few shots but consistency is where your money should be spent.
