上一次跟大家分享了婚禮拍攝的兩類,而兩類婚禮拍攝的出發點和要求又有這麼大的分別,今次將會首先為大家講一下Pre-Wedding 婚紗攝影。這一種婚禮拍攝在選擇上可以考慮什麼因素,去決定究竟那一種婚禮攝影師和風格會更合適自己呢?

先前也有說過,香港婚禮攝影師和風格有很多種,拍攝上五花八門,自然真實的捕捉、創意創作的破格、藝術風格的經典等等⋯⋯如果對婚禮拍攝上的認識是零,在準備婚禮時才剛剛開始認識婚禮拍攝的圈子,在選擇上難免會有點難以決擇,到底那一種自己才合適喜歡,還是應該選擇現在最熱門的種類才好呢?還是直接問問身邊已結婚或剛結婚的朋友,選擇那一間婚禮攝影服務好呢?

婚姻是一生的承諾,而婚禮攝影更是紀錄這個承諾的證明,在選擇上當然不能草草了事。一個好的攝影師,更能為新人留底一個更美好的回憶,成為婚禮上一份格外珍貴的禮物。

但婚禮的準備上本來已經有很多事情要處理,如果加上對攝影沒有任何經驗,現在還要慢慢開始一個個婚禮攝影師去認識,確實有點分身不睱。如能事先了解自己喜歡或合適的拍攝風格,直接在自己喜歡的種類上再作選擇,處理上絕對會輕鬆得多。

為了可以方便各位去了解,我會跟據個人性格、生活習慣和日常喜好這幾方面作一些建議。性格上會否是文靜慢活型?好動不羈型?完美主意型?

首先講解文靜類型的人。他們生活和處事上比較隨和,喜歡慢活細味生活上所有好與壞的事情。喜歡親身體驗與感受身邊一切,不會致力追求完美,即使係壞事情中也會能從中得到感受和學習。平常喜歡到處遊歷體驗世界,經常看書,常常去一些工作坊學習手藝,飲一下咖啡,感受咖啡豆帶給口腔與舌頭上每一處味蕾的變化和感覺,這類也就是人們口中常說的文青。這類型的朋友也許相對於相片最後的完成品,更在意拍攝過程中與愛人當天渡過的回憶,不需要作品出來有多麼破格特別,或者有多麼驚豔,更在乎相片能否把當下兩人之間真摯的情感和畫面為他們記錄下來。

如果你是這一類的朋友,在Pre-Wedding 拍攝的選擇上,一些專門拍攝情感捕捉,記錄當下隨意而不做作的拍攝類型會更為合適你,在市場上一些俗稱小清新的類型正正是專為這類型客人而設。他們未必有每一張都完美的表情動作或獨一無二有獨特之處的相片,但卻有每一張都是客人真實的情感。

這次首先解說文靜文藝類型的朋友,接下來下次將會解說另外兩類型的朋友。
Last time I shared about the two types of wedding photoshoots, and the starting point and requirements of these two types have such a big difference. This time I will first tell you about Pre-Wedding wedding photography. When choosing this type of wedding photoshoot, what factors should be considered to decide which wedding photographer and style will be more suitable for you?

As mentioned earlier, there are many kinds of wedding photographers and styles in Hong Kong. Natural capture, artistic creation, artistic style, etc. If you have zero understanding of wedding photography, only starting to understand the circle of wedding photograph when starting to prepare for the wedding, it will be inevitably difficult to make a choice. Which type is suitable for yourself? Should you pick the most popular type? Or directly ask for referrals from friends who are married or just married?

Marriage is a lifelong commitment, and wedding photography is a proof of this promise. Of course, this is a serious decision. A good photographer can help the couple make better memories and create a special gift for thel wedding. 

But there are already a lot of things to deal with in the preparation of the wedding. If you don't have any experience in photography, you have to slowly go through and understand each wedding photographer. It will really tie you up. If you can understand your favorite or suitable shooting style in advance, and make a choice directly on the type you like, it will be much easier to handle.

In order to facilitate you to understand, I will make some suggestions based on personal characteristics, habits and daily preferences. Are you a quiet person and prefer slow living? Are you very active? Or are you a perfectionist?

First of all, I will explain the quiet type of people. They are more easy-going in life and work. They like to experience all the good and bad things in life. They like to experience and feel everything around them. They will not strive to pursue perfection. They will learn from bad experiences. They usually like to travel around and experience the world. They may often go to some workshops to learn some handcrafts. They may like to drink coffee and feel the taste of the coffee beans. “Hipsters” as often mentioned on media, may have less concern on the final product of the photos, and more concern on the photoshoot process with the loved one. The photos may not have to be one of its kind creation, they may care more on whether the photos can reflect true emotions and scenes between the couple.

If you are this type of person, in the choice of Pre-Wedding shooting, you may be more suitable for photographers who specialize in emotion capture, recording the random and unpretentious moments. In the market, there are some commonly known as “hipster” or ”fresh and energetic” style which are specifically designed for this type of people. The photos may not have a perfect facial expression or unique styling, but each photo is reflecting the true emotion of the couple.

This round I have explained the quiet type of people, and next time I will continue with the other two types.
