Professional Photographer for Durban Weddings
You could barely pick a lovelier destination in which to get married than in subtropical Durban, one of the premier holiday and tourism cities in South Africa. But how do you find an experienced, competent wedding photographer when you have not lived in this beautiful city for a long time and you don’t know whom to contact?
Firstly though, consider carefully what qualities a top wedding photographer needs to possess, because this special day is one of a kind, and whoever you choose to take your pictures has only this one opportunity to get them exactly right.
There is a lot more to capturing the loving, intimate moments that pass between a bride and her groom on the day of their marriage. A good photographer like Eloise, the owner of Eloise Photography, has the skill and talent to anticipate the subtle nuances of a couple’s dynamic relationship, enabling her to “click” at precisely the right time, not missing a very special, unique moment in time.
The person behind the camera’s lens requires an eye for detail and the bigger picture. Although the main focus is centred on the couple, the background forms the backdrop or canvas on which the main elements – the couple – is featured, and should never distract from this, but rather compliment the look, feel and ambience of the image.
Lighting is another important factor. Too little, and nothing is crispy clear, particularly the finer detail of that special gown, the bride’s radiance and the groom’s pride at marrying the lovely girl of his dreams. Too much light produces a harsh image, with no subtlety. Lighter elements, such as the bride’s dress, appear like an undefined white blob, while faces are devoid of emotion.
Many people are camera-shy or self-conscious and freeze every time a lens is pointed in their direction. In these instances, the camera operator must have the people skills and ability to put his/her subjects at ease, making them forget all about the camera, whilst engaging them in other ways. This ensures natural, unposed and lifelike images.
Eloise is happy to travel to virtually any destination in South Africa, particularly Durban, so you will never be stuck without a professional wedding photographer, anywhere in this country.
