Wedding Photography Tips & Tricks

I'm an experienced photographer so please, let me give you some tips & tricks to make your pictures perfect and the shoot as efficient as possible.


First of all, please arrive on time. Any delay caused by you will reduce our reserved time for your photo shoot. 


How do we at Fotoshoot Rotterdam prepare ourselves for your wedding photo session?

We plan long ahead before your wedding.  We will ask you a few details about your wedding (location, time, your preferences, etc.).  We analyse (as much as we can) the location of your wedding to determine how much additional light we will need, where we can park our car, etc. Our photographers are always equipped with two cameras and other equipment to guarantee a perfect wedding shoot.


What about clothes, costumes, toys, props, gadgets?

Our studio has the widest assortment of props in the Netherlands. See here some of our assortment propos and other items which we use in Wedding Photography.


Where can we do your photo shoot?

First of all, we do your shoot on your wedding location during the ceremony. This will usually take place in a town hall, church, castle or a historic building. Very often we can do the second round of the wedding shoot in a neighbouring courtyard, garden, on monumental, iconic stairs, etc. Frequently there will be a wedding party after the ceremony which offers our photographer an excellent opportunity to capture the love between the two of you, your family and friends, happiness, joy, fun. 


Your wedding shoot from the ceremony and the party forms the basis. But the most stunning pictures which will tell your personal story are often made after your wedding day on a unique location where the both of you decide about everything: the location, the expression on your face, the background, etc. Right now your are 100% in control. It's only the both of you. You really feel at ease. Where can we go? Literally everywhere; the beach and the dunes of Tweede Maasvlakte, Kralingse Bos or Zuiderpark (Rotterdam Central Park), the windmills of Kinderdijk, the old soda factory of Schiedam and hundreds more. Our phorotgraphers have many original ideas and suggestions.


Which styles, themes can you choose from?

As you can see in our portfolio, you can choose literally any style, theme, story which will accopmany your Wedding Shoot. From colourful, 'bling-bling' & sweet to minimalistic, basic, quiet, black & white. You decide about it. Or our photographer can make suggestions. You can combine various styles in one photo session.


What about make-up and hair styling?

Our make-up artist and our hairdresser will fully prepare you for your wedding shoot. See our proposition here.


Can I choose my pictures (which will be edited and delivered)?

Yes. You are the only one choosing your stunning photos. Then our photographer will edit them and deliver them to you.


How do I receive my photos?

They will be sent digitally to you via WeTransfer. Your pictures will be professionally edited in high resolution.  


What if my wedding photo session is outside and the weather gets worse?

Well, it seems to be a problem but it isn't. We have two options:

1. Reschedule your shoot

2. Your shoot takes place in our professional studio

We do not charge you extra for rescheduling.
