Wedding Photographer Important Tips

Wedding Photographer

Wedding Photographer one of the most helpful tips I’ve been given about Wedding Photography is to get the couple to think ahead about the shots that they’d like you to capture.

Switch OFF The Beep Sound

Beep during speeches, the kiss and vows don’t add to the event. Wedding photographer must know to switch off sound before hand and keep it off.

Try To Capture Small Things

Wedding photographer should photograph rings, backs of dresses, shoes, flowers, table settings, menus etc, these help give the end album an extra dimension. Flick through a wedding magazine in a news stand for a little inspiration.

Using Two Cameras

wedding photographer must beg, borrow, hire an extra camera for the day  set it up with a different lens. I try to shoot with one wide angle lens great for candid shots and in tight spaces particularly before the ceremony in the preparation stage of the day and one longer lens it can be handy to have something as large as 200mm.

Using Second Photo Shooter

Having a second backup wedding photographer in can be a great strategy. It means less moving around during ceremony and speeches, allows for one to capture the formal shots and the other to get candid shots. It also takes a little pressure off you being ‘the one’ to have to get every shot.

Using Diff-user

The ability to bounce a flash or to diffuse it is key. You’ll find that in many churches that light is very low. If you’re allowed to use a flash and some churches don’t allow it think about whether bouncing the flash will work remember if you bounce off a colored surface it will add a colored cast to the picture or whether you might want to buy a flash diff-user to soften the light. If you can’t use a flash you’ll need to either use a fast lens at wide apertures or bump up the ISO. A lens with image stabilization might also help.
