Bridal Tip #2
Here's an F.Y.I for future Brides out there:
When looking for your perfect photographer and you run across one that says He/She is a "natural light" photographer. What that means is, they have no idea how to use a off camera flash. This could be devastating to your photos. If you have an indoor wedding the venue, it might be too dark, even for these advanced DSLR cameras today. Not using a flash will cause your pictures to be underexposed (dark) with little detail. If you have an outdoor venue, even with bright sunlight, the camera will meter the brightest part, the sun, and everything else will be underexposed, these photographers will tell you they will spot meter you, ok, so yes you will be exposed correctly but watch out, the sun is going supernova behind you! At least that's what it will look like. You have to use a flash to light face, dress details, etc. Of course the photographer could turn you toward the sun and use it as the light source, I hope you don't mind looking into the sun and have a bunch of photos with you squinting in them. Please make sure your photographer is equipped in using both natural light and well as off camera flash techniques.
