You might be wondering why. Why would an experienced North Wales wedding photographer have to bother with spending hours at the rehearsal of his clients? It’s not like he’s personally close with them nor will the clients feel neglected because of that. They know that the event is a closed one with only best friends and family members included.
But, hey, you are missing out a lot of benefits from attending them. Moreover, the fact that your clients are already inviting you means that you should not feel like you are intruding into the occasion. You have to attend it or else, you are missing out on a lot of things!
Respecting your client
Some clients feel appreciated when their invitations are accepted. When you attend, you show that you care a little more about the wedding more than what your client thought. This is also a good chance to do other things and making sure of the wedding preparation with your client.
Your clients will get to practice taking wedding pictures with their North Wales wedding photographer. And here you thought that it’s actually a good idea because some people are just so stiff in front of a camera. It takes a lot of effort trying to make them get used to taking pictures and you don’t have time for that on the wedding day!
On the other hand, you need to make sure that the ideas you have can be executed. You don’t get many chances to take the pictures with the actual models and this is one of those chances. It’s true that a professional North Wales wedding photographer like Maurice from Maurice Roberts Photography will be able to do it without practicing. If you’ve been to enough sessions, you know what’s possible and what’s not.
Meet new people
There are many ways you can do to increase your exposure, but nothing works as well as meeting those people in person. As a wedding photographer, you can immediately show them the results and talk to them without having to plan for it. Your client also won’t get mad at you for doing so, it’s a night to just chill and enjoy your dinner!
You get to promote yourself to them and you can easily enter their top list when they need to find a wedding photographer.
Getting to know your clients
This is also a chance to get to know the people that you will be working with for a whole day later. You want to know what makes them feel uncomfortable about your working method, what they love about the pictures and what they want to change. Aside from that, simply becoming someone like a friend to them will definitely narrow the gap between you, making the photography session more enjoyable.
Every couple we meet mentions that they feel more comfortable and enjoy taking wedding pictures despite the stress with a friendly photographer. Be that person, and you’ll easily help them leave a rather positive review about you and tell others of it. Attending the rehearsal is the best way a North Wales wedding photographer can do.
