How does one become the best wedding photographer in Barrie? Firstly, they have to know Barrie! Working in the area regularly helps the photographer identify the best locations for engagement and portrait photography in Simcoe County whether one of the forested provincial parks or streets of downtown, by Kempenfelt Bay. They also should have connections in the wedding industry that are also local and able to offer a quality assortment of products and services to complete your vision. Being a part of societies, business bureaus and charitable events that give back to the city is not a requirement but is an important part of good citizenship and networking. While this will not make someone the best wedding photographer in Barrie, it shows that they care about the community at large and therefore will shoot in public areas with respect and will take good care of you as their client.
The best wedding photography studio in Barrie needs to be able to craft stunning imagery even in crowded areas, such as during Kempenfest or the Barrie Waterfront Festival. They should offer a dynamic approach to each event they document, even if they have worked there many times before. They also need to respond to changes in the environment, like the sudden onset of snow or rain that is common in an area surrounded by the Great Lakes, Georgian Bay and Lake Simcoe. Being in the snow belt can be fun, especially for engagement sessions, but it takes high level of skill to understand the reflectivity of the snowy surface, and quality gear to withstand the harsh temperatures and wetness in the air. The snow can also make access to certain areas more difficult and it is the professional's responsibility to find alternate areas that offer the same general background but with an easier point of entry. In other words, they must be technically proficient and able to handle any situation a Barrie wedding can offer!
Having been in business for many years, and having lived in the Simcoe Region for a large portion of that time, I hope the Flashback Photography is one of the best wedding studios in Barrie. With dedication to providing a high quality service that captures the essence of our beautiful landscape I do hope you will consider me to capture your adventure in the great Northern Ontario.
