Durban Wedding Photographers Behind the Lens
When one has decided to have a destination wedding and get married in Durban, you will still need the assistance of numerous persons, ranging from a minister, priest or rabbi, to conduct the formalities, caterers, a florist and, of course, a competent photographer.
Top wedding photographers in Durban and anywhere else, are required to have a certain set of skills and abilities, since they have only this one opportunity to capture and record a very important occasion, and all its unique moods and nuances.
The occasion of one’s marriage, the actual ceremony and subsequent reception, is usually emotionally charged, such that each moment is spontaneous, natural and unplanned. The person behind the lens should not only be ready to capture each special moment, emotion and expression, but they should also have the ability to anticipate, in order to avoid missing that characteristic instant in time.
How the person relates to and builds a rapport with others, who are initially complete strangers, is a vital aspect of a successful, pleasing shoot. If the principle subjects – the bride and groom – feel awkward and uncomfortable in the camera person’s presence, it’ll show very clearly and obviously in the pictures.
It takes a natural, non-judgemental, easy-going, calm, friendly, competent and confident manner to put others at ease, and allow them to feel relaxed and free to be themselves in front of one’s lens. Ideally, the photographer wants them to forget that he/she is there, and that’s a major factor in taking wonderful pictures.
One such person is Eloise, owner and principle wedding photographer of the company which carries her name. She loves people and the Durban/Ballito Bay area, but will travel to any destination in South Africa where her expert services are required. Her other specialities include engagements, families and babies – actually, all disciplines of her profession which focus (no pun intended) on people.
Be sure to engage an experienced, professional wedding photographer who is au fait with all the things that make Durban and special occasions celebrated there so wonderfully unique, characteristic and memorable.
