It is harder to photograph a wedding than you might think. This is different from other types of photoshoots as you must work quickly and well under pressure. After all, you are in charge of documenting one of the most special events in the couple’s life!
Here are things that beginners should always remember:
1. Remain calm and organized
No matter what happens, the wedding photographer must keep their composure. Practice is one way to stay cool regardless of the pressure. This is a must if you want to deliver genuine but good photos of such an important event. Discuss everything with your client ahead of time to avoid surprises and unexpected incidents.
2. Do not zone out
There are certain key moments in every single wedding that everyone already knows about. While wedding preparation and exchange of vows are obvious, let us not forget about those heart-warming genuine displays of emotions that take place outside of these moments. Therefore, the photographer must be alert and observant.
3. Capture the venue too
The couple has spent many hours on wedding planning. As a photographer, one must also document the space that serves as the venue of the event. A lot of thought has gone into the small details, so it is our responsibility to give them the attention they deserve as well.
Wedding photography is hard work. It is worth investing in people who know what they are doing to save yourself the hassle!
