Choose Your Venue

Before you look for a wedding photographer in DC area, you have to choose the venue for the big day first! Ideally, if you want a wedding photographer for DC area, you need to book 9 months to a year before the actual event. Do note that wedding photography in DC is in very high demand so booking in advance is important especially if your chosen photographer is very popular in your local area.

Once you’ve secured a wedding venue, then you can start considering recommendations and offers from likely candidates.

Get Recommendations

Seasoned wedding photographers have a reputation to keep and are very easy to find!(We are just a call Away!!) Of course, just because a certain photographer is popular doesn’t mean he or she is the right choice for you. As such, never rush the decision and go with the first photographer you come across. Instead, ask help from your friends and family. Get recommendations from married friends(We have many:), borrow their photo albums, and go online to do your research. You can also scour social media sites like Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram to check for sample works, blog posts, and client reviews.

Treasure the best Day of your Life - Indian photography - DC Wedding Photographer | AVS360 - Best wedding photography

Start the Interview

List down all the potential DC wedding photographers and start calling them up for inquiries. Check which of these photographers suit your budget and specific needs. If a certain wedding photographer in DC specializes in a specific area of photography, make sure they fit your wedding theme and venue. For instance, some photographers specialize in traditional weddings while others specialize in modern weddings. Once you’ve narrowed down your choices(which will be probably the US!!!), it is time to start conducting interviews. Because wedding photography in DC is big business, most if not all of the shortlisted candidates can present more than three albums of sample works. You want to see at least one album of a wedding, preferably a wedding that’s similar to what you have in mind for your special day. Check if the photo style is in line with what you like. Check the expressions on the guests’ faces in the photos. Do they look natural or forced? Check the bride and groom’s facial expressions, are they natural or forced? All these factors are important when looking for the right wedding photographer for your wedding.

After checking the sample works, you can ask for photos from the most recent wedding the photographer covered. This way, you’ll get an idea how a photographer’s average work compares with his pre-selected sample works. During the interview, you can also evaluate a photographer’s professionalism. Choose an experienced DC wedding photographer with a solid background in wedding photography. The Wedding Mode photographers and videographers have an extensive background in a variety of photography styles, including weddings.

Discuss the Fee

Once you are done with the interview and you have chosen a specific wedding photographer, it is time to hash out the cost and sign the contract. The price could go up depending on the set asking price of the photographer.  After agreeing on a price, seal the deal by signing the contract. (We are reasonable;)

Before signing the contract and booking the photographer(us!!), make sure he or she will show up on your wedding(we always do!). Learn which parts of the event will be covered and how many hours your photographer and his assistants will work during the wedding.

To Forego all the above-described process, simply contact us for your search for best DC wedding photographer and we would be happy to capture your best day of your life!

3 Ways Your Wedding Videography Will Shape Your Memories

Wedding Videographers have a lot of power. Out of the 16+ hours you’re awake on your wedding day, your wedding video will capture just a small portion of every single event that actually took place. Just as your brain selectively registers what it sees and hears, your videographer will discern what is important to record on your wedding day and what is not. This is necessary in order to make an interesting and meaningful film that you’ll want to watch over and over again.

What and how we choose to film your wedding day will greatly influence your memories in the years to come.

Below mentioned are 3 common approaches that we at AVS360 use to determine how and in what way your wedding day will be remembered. Understanding these approaches will help you understand how we will try to shape your memories of the wedding day itself. So before you give AVS360 the power to record your wedding, understand their style and what they’ll end up creating for you.

3 Ways Your Wedding Videography Will Shape Your Memories | AVS360 - Indian Wedding Videographer

1: The documentary approach.

Documentary wedding videos focus on preserving a record of what your wedding day looked like. They are often the most affordable option for couples who want wedding video. Essentially, it’s a basic recording of your wedding day as it happens.

Priority is generally given to substance over style. This means you’ll get a full record of everything that happened on your wedding day. Less attention is given to making what happened to look beautiful on camera.

The final wedding film is normally set to a variety of music tracks.

Common Reaction: It’s great to have a record of what happened for future generations.

3 Ways Your Wedding Videography Will Shape Your Memories | AVS360 - DC Wedding Videographer

2: The cinematic approach.

Due to recent developments in camera technology, wedding videographers now have the ability to capture moments with a very cinematic style. Great emphasis is placed on making moments look good as well as capturing what happened. We at AVS360 will often consider light, lens choice and camera movement to make the final film polished and of a high production value.

Films are usually shorter than a Documentary Video. This allows the videographer to be more creative and focus on just the important parts of the day. Films are not always edited in a chronological manner. This helps to keep the film a little less predictable and enjoyable to watch.

Due to the cinematic style films generally, focus on Effect over Affect. “Wow” shots are often sorted after to give the film great effect and production value. Focusing on effect will make your film visually stunning, however, less attention is given to how the film affects or moves the audience.

We often have a wide variety of gear to help create the cinematic look. This might include multiple DSLR style cameras, sliders, glide cams or gimballed stabilizers for dynamic moving shots. Drones are also becoming more popular to capture epic scenery and establishing shots. Drones with camera has enabled the videographers to capture angles which were only possible for Hollywood budgets earlier.

Common Reaction: Wow, your wedding looked amazing. What a beautiful day.

3 Ways Your Wedding Videography Will Shape Your Memories | AVS360 - DC Wedding Videography

3: The storytelling approach.

Storytelling Filmmakers put story first. Although the final film can still look very cinematic, We at AVS360 are inspired more by the who, rather than the what.

Instead of just recording what the wedding day looked like, real effort is placed on capturing who you are as a couple. This approach ensures every wedding film is truly unique and personal to each couple, and AVS360 have a lot of testimonials to back the fine work that we always put in.

We know how to listen, ask the right questions and really get to know you as a couple. They’ll often go the extra mile to knit together a powerful story.

Emphasis is often placed on Affect over Effect. The goal of a good story is to affect you in some manner. There is a strong purpose and message within each film. Focusing on effect gives the film greater depth and meaning. Effect (or really awesome shots) are still great to have, as long as they contribute to the story being told.

Like a really good movie, Storytelling Filmmakers are few and far between. However, AVS360 is always available at your service.

Common Reaction. That film spoke to my heart. You are both so perfect for each other.

As videography is a creative medium there will always be a blur between these approaches defined above. It’s also important to view the consistency within a videographers approach or style as well.

Websites are great for enjoying someone’s best work, but try to find their Vimeo or YouTube page. Look to see how often they post films online and the quality of their week in-week out videos. This will give you a true measure of the quality and style you can expect from a videographer at your wedding.

The Wedding Video Industry has matured a lot in the last few years. There is now many options and approaches to suit every couple.

Do give us a chance to make your wedding a memorable one.

Comments Off on What to wear for your Family portraits in Family Potraits

What to wear for your Family portraits

What should we wear for our family portraits? It’s the most common question we are asked.
Every photographer will tell you something different…solids are best…different shades of the same color is best…put the kids in darker colors…keep it simple…minimal jewelry…white/black shirts in jeans is perfect…
WE SAY, BREAK ALL THE RULES!
WEAR COLOR, WEAR MANY DIFFERENT COLORS, LAYER YOUR LOOK, TEXTURES ARE A GOOD THING, STATEMENT JEWELRY ADDS PIZAZZ!!
Here are the best advises as you set out on the quest for the perfect Family portrait:

Step 1:

Choose clothing for one person first
You don’t have to go out and buy all new outfits for your portrait. Most times, you can get a great look by building your clothing around one person’s outfit. It’s usually best to start with the person in the group who is hardest to pick an outfit for. Most of the time this is the mother or daughter, as boys are normally very easy to style. Look through your closet for a great piece you want them to wear for the portrait or consider buying an outfit for that person and going from there.
For example, you’ve found a fun sweater for your son with tan, light blue, and orange stripes. You know the rest of your family has clothing at home that would match the colors in the sweater. So, you decide he could wear the sweater with a light blue shirt, tan pants, and brown shoes.

Step 2:

Build the rest of the group’s outfits based on the first person
Now that you’ve got one person’s clothing done, you can build the rest of the group’s outfits. In your case, you also bought your husband a sweater vest in orange to go with your son’s sweater. Then, at home, you each had a blue shirt, brown/khaki pants for the guys and a brown skirt for you. Maybe you also had a jacket to go with the tan in the boy’s sweater, and you’re all set!
General rules to remember when choosing outfits:
Keep in mind where you are going to be shooting
Are you going to be indoors or outdoors? Is the area paved, muddy, rocky, or grassy? What kind of colors would look best in that setting? If you will be outside, it’s a good idea to wear clothes you would be comfortable sitting on the ground in. If you are shooting with a green background (trees/bushes), be sure not to wear all green!

What to wear for Family Portraits | AVS360 - DC Family Portraits & DC Wedding Photography

Stick to one style

Make sure everyone in the group is wearing one style of clothing such as classy (formal wear, suits, dresses, etc.), casual (jeans, tees, hoodies, converse), or contemporary (a mixture of classy and casual—like a dressy top with jeans and heels). You don’t want to look like half of the family is going to a wedding and the others are going to the park to play.

Avoid too many patterns or huge logos.

Patterns should compliment each other, not draw attention away from the main subject of the photo, togetherness!
Colors don’t have to match, but they do need to go together. Clothing from the same color palette or based on colors in one outfit tends to create a cohesive look without feeling too “matchy.” We love fun and vibrant colors; they help the portraits “pop” off the screen or print, but remember, the emphasis of the photos should be on your faces, not your clothing.
Bring accessories and props that pull together the outfit
Using props and accessories is a good way to get different looks out of a single outfit. Think about things that characterize you and your personality: scarves, purses, shoes, and items from your line of work, hobbies, and interests.

What to wear for Family Portraits | AVS360 - DC Family Portraits

Hands and Feet

Occasionally, we will take photos of details like hand-holding and family feet! Remember to clean and trim nails for these shots. For feet, if your toes will show…make sure your toenail polish is fresh.
Clients are always welcome to an over-the-phone consult about what to wear to the shoot. We’ve even helped finalized outfit choices in person. I just want you to feel good. During your shoot you could be sitting in a pile on the grass having a tickle battle, rolling down a hill, throwing your kiddos in the air or climbing a tree. Wear clothing that lets you do all that (and more) comfortably. As for the kids?
Well…uncomfortable kids have a tendency to look…uncomfortable and are often cranky to boot. Happy kids make for happy pictures.

Bottom Line: Don’t choose outfits that make any of you feel constrained, stiff, itchy, scratchy like you’re dressed up for Halloween, or that leave you with a nagging worry that a button might pop if you bend the wrong way. Trust us!

How to work with your Wedding Photographer

Weddings are special days in our lives. We spend a lot of time and effort in planning our perfect
wedding day. From the food, the guest list, the venue to the dresses- we spend a lot of time in choosing the best of these. But when the day is done, the food is served, the guests leave and the lights go off; what remains with you are unforgettable memories- and the wedding photographs. Wedding photographs are the only tangible memories of your wedding that stay with you. As such special attention must be paid while choosing a wedding photographer and wedding videographer for the day. But even if you do select the professional wedding photographer that you think will be best for you, you have to realize that you have to work together with him to get the best wedding photographs. After all it’s your wedding, your family, your friends and a photographer is just an outsider among them. Here are some points which go a long way to give you the wedding photographs that match and exceed your expectations.
Work with your Wedding Photographer | AVS360 - Indian Wedding photography in DC
Communicate – Call or better yet hold an interview with the photographer along with your partner before the wedding day. Discuss what type of photographs you want specifically. Ask him how he goes about his work. Give him a heads up about the important events and people that you definitely want for your wedding. This gives both you and the photographer an idea of what to expect and what is expected out of them. Not only that, this also give the photographer a general idea about how you and your partner are as a couple and can help them design a photoshoot that captures the nuances of you perfectly.

Work with your Wedding Photographer | AVS360 - DC & Indian Wedding photographerDevelop a storyline
– stories are personal. So are weddings. That’s why the best wedding albums are those which are in the form of a storyline that depicts the events of the day as they happened. Its best to first make it clear how much time the photographer will spend on your wedding. The more time a photographer spends with you, the more time he has to capture the beauty of this very special day. Discuss with them how much time will be required by them at every stage so that you are prepared for it and do not feel rushed on the day.

Give them a freehand (somewhat) – discuss and ensure beforehand with the photographer what specify photos you want in your album. Decide beforehand the list of formal groupings that you would like to see in your wedding. They can be before or after the wedding ceremony. But do yourself a favor and don’t add any photos to the list corny clichés that are posed yet try to appear natural. If you have chosen a photographer trust him to capture the natural and candid photographs for the vent. Plus, it is also advised to not stick to a list too much. Weddings are bus events and there is so much happening throughout the day. If you stick to a list you are bound to miss out on some of the magical moments that can happen without any notice.

Wedding photography styles at AVS360

Like many other things in life, there is no one-size-fits-all in wedding photography. And it figures, for something that is this personal and special in someone’s life, one would want something that strictly fits with their taste and preferences. Since wedding photography and video is the only tangible memory of this momentous day, one needs to be extra careful when choosing a wedding photographer. Here we list few of the popular wedding photography styles so that you can choose one which matches your requirements-

Wedding photography styles | AVS360 - Best DC Wedding photographer and videographer
Traditional or classic– this is the typical wedding photography style that you see most often in photographs. Here the wedding photographer works to capture a list of shots. The photographer and the couple typically discuss what types of shots that they want in the wedding album in particular beforehand. The short list also includes the other important events of the day. This style of photography mostly deals in poses. The required people, be it the couple, their parents, or friends are asked to pose in specific style and the photographer captures these moments. This style of photography does not include candid moments and typically showcases discrete moments of the wedding, as opposed to a storyline.
Wedding photography styles | AVS360 - Best Indian Wedding photographer in DC
Photojournalistic– this style captures the wedding day in the form of a storyline. The wedding photographer follows the couple throughout the day- from the time they are getting ready to the end of the day. The final album will appear more like a documentary with a progressive timeline. This style of photography appears to be more naturalistic than the traditional style. But it requires a higher level of commitment from the couple as the photographer will need more access to their personal space. This style is even more effective if you hire a wedding videographer along with the photographer.
Wedding photography styles | AVS360 - DC Indian Wedding photographer
Illustrative – this style of photography seeks to provide the best of both worlds. It incorporates the elements of both traditional and photojournalistic styles. It includes poses, but here the focus is to make them look more natural and personal. The whole setting is more relaxed and the poses are more informal than the traditional style.
Photography styles are like a photographer’s personality. Each photographer has a unique perspective and he captures photos which are best according to his own view. But something like wedding photography which is so personal and special should not be done according to someone else’s tastes.

Albums of their previous work and their online gallery should be seen and compared. Choose a
photographer who fits your bill- both figuratively and literally. Talk to the photographer about what you want and require and only then finalize one. All this is very important for getting the best photographs of this special day of your life. Get the best Wedding photographers and videographers in DC with us now.

Wedding Photography Checklist | AVS360 - Best Wedding Photography & Videograher in DC

  • Do you shoot wedding video as well?
    It pays if your wedding photographer and videographer have an existing rapport with each other. This ensures that they can stay out of each other’s way when they are shooting. They can point each other to the other important happenings in the event if they are busy shooting elsewhere. That is why it is advised to get your wedding videographer and photographer from the same agency. Even if they don’t offer video, ask them to recommend someone suitable for the job.
  • What do you include in your packages?
    Today wedding photographers offer different packages that offer different coverage of the events. It helps to have a clear idea beforehand of exactly what you need so that you can find a suitable package without overspending on things that you may even not require. Ask them about the total costs and its breakdown. This also helps in comparing the offerings of different wedding photographers which clearly helps in choosing a photographer that fits your bill and expectations.
