Jasmine Star FAQ: What Makes Good Wedding Editorial Photos @MediaNovak
A few weeks ago, my lovely friend Rebecca Crumley emailed and asked if I might have photos she might be able to use for a First Look article she was editing. Rebecca has great taste in food, listens to awesome music, and is the photo editor for The Knot Magazine. When she’s looking for specific photos, she reaches out to a plethora of photographers and also makes requests via Twitter. If you’re itching to get published, follow her… she’s good peeps.
Ewww. Peeps… reminds me of Easter candy. I need to change the subject because marshmallow chickens creep me out.
I sent her a few First Look options and she kindly declined, but not without us having a conversation about what she’s looking for in relation to editorial photography. When Rebecca looks for an image to accompany a magazine story, there are a litany of considerations, most of which photographers are unaware (myself included). Below is a transcript of our conversation in case you’d like to learn more about editorial wedding photography. Just kidding. It’s not a really a transcript (more like a Cliff Notes version) because recording our conversation would’ve been creepy. Like Peeps.
