Wedding photography is something absolutely amazing. Remember to take wedding photos from all the different parts of the wedding day; the preparations, the portraits, the wedding, the dinner and finally the party. All parts have their charm with images that carry with them different types of memories and emotions.
To become a good wedding photographer, practice is required. One way may be to accompany an experienced wedding photographer, to see how that photographer works. Asking an established photographer if you can keep up can thus be a good way for you to get started with wedding photography. During a wedding photo shoot, it is important to use a lens with fast and efficient autofocus as many things happen during the day quickly and without warning.
Wedding photography tips
Many brides and grooms are unaccustomed to being in front of the camera and may even be a little uncomfortable. Therefore, it is important that you as a photographer make them feel relaxed. This is usually resolved if you make sure to get to know the bride and groom first, by meeting them well before the big day.
Of course, how good an environment is also depends on the light. Therefore, recreate environments at approximately the same time of day, as when the photography will then take place. If it pours down, no bride and groom want to stand outside and have their clothes and hairstyles ruined. Then make sure to have a good photo spot that protects from the rain, maybe in an arch or in a nice indoor environment.
Being busy for a whole day as a wedding photographer is energy consuming. Therefore, make sure to unpack energy cookies or similar to have the energy all the way. Your attire as a photographer should be fairly comfortable to work in, but at the same time stylish and clean to match the festive day.
