Wedding photography is an essential feature in all weddings as it is the best possible method of immortalizing your most special day of your life. Whether it is an Indian marriage, Muslim marriage or Hindu marriage, wedding photography forms an integral part of all wedding ceremonies across the world regardless of the nationality, caste, race, religion and traditions followed in different marriages. Bangladeshi weddings are no different. In fact in the Bangladeshi marriage of my friend- Nafeesa Yusuf that I attended recently, I found that the bridal party paid a greater emphasis on getting only the best wedding photographer to cover her wedding ceremony. Nafeesa and her groom Aneek Alam wanted only a reputed and an experienced wedding photographer to capture the beautiful memories in the photos.
Since wedding photographs are one of the best ways of keeping memories of special day alive even ages after the ceremonies are over, hiring a professional wedding photographer was the choice of Nafeesa and Aneek for their arranged marriage ceremony. Both of them looked through the Bangladeshi marriage websites for finding a well-known wedding photographer who can capture all the great moments in the lenses that can make for a fabulous wedding album. A few wedding photographers enlisted with websites also gave out details like their total work experience as a wedding photographer and showcased some of their brilliant works that they did in the past. Bangladeshi wedding hosts from the side of Nafeesa and Aneek also checked out testimonials posted about their chosen few wedding photographers in order to make sure that they pick up only a professional wedding photographer.
There was a huge list of wedding photographers and at one point both Nafeesa and Aneek were confused whom to choose for this important task. However, the Bangladeshi bridal party from Nafeesa’s side short-listed a few wedding photographers after checking out the photography style of each of the photographers from their online portfolios. Some Bangladeshi matrimonial websites also have a section containing list of wedding photographers and vital photography tips. Couples also checked out those sites and then picked up a photographer who can create an unforgettable album seeing which they can recall fond memories of their wedding.
After selecting a suitable wedding photographer, Nafeesa and Aneek also sat with the photographer to give him an idea of what they expect him to cover and explained him about ceremonies and rituals that need to be shot with great precision and detailing so as to showcase the importance of marriage and wedding rituals in their lives. Couples also discussed payment details with the wedding photographer and provided him with a wedding photography checklist that enlisted all the events that they want him to cover extensively in order to avoid any disappointments later on.
