How to take good wedding photos
Wedding photoshoots are one of the most demanding and paying jobs in the world. A wedding photoshoot is one hell of a stressful task if not done with prior arrangements. Since the wedding is a complex mix of different traditions and events, a wedding photographer has to keep in mind to make the most special day of the couple's life a lot more special. It's tricky, hectic and of course, needs a lot of professionalism.
Since your margin of error is almost zero in this case of the photoshoot, you must leave no stone unturned to give your best. So keeping all the things in mind, we have noted some of the things for you to keep in mind while taking wedding photos.
How to take wedding photos
1. Explore the venue - Once you have finalized the contract with your client, you can ask for the wedding venue and commence your research in getting to know every corner of the place. Find out how you can design poses or styles of couple photos for the bride and the groom. Try to visit the venue for at least a day so that you can manage your ideas later.
2. Check your gear before the D-Day
Nobody would want an accident or a shocker on the main day. Therefore you make sure that all your cameras are working perfectly before the main day. Clean your lenses effectively. Keep a check on your memory card, extra lenses, and extra essentials.
3. An assistant is a must
You must take an assistant with you. Since a wedding is a tedious task, you should take an assistant who would help you simultaneously. They can focus on details and other parts of the wedding while you take photographers.
4. Capture small details
Capture all the details of the wedding. Weddings are the most beautiful and special occasion for most couples. When couples flip through their wedding album after 10 years, they should be able to relive all the memories like they happened just yesterday.
5. Keep a check on lighting
Lighting plays an imperative role in taking good wedding photos. Since you will be given a lot of different light zones according to the event, you must know how to take different photos in any sort of lighting. It can be blue or white light, and you must not be ready.
6. Focus on the couple
Well, this goes without saying. It's the bride's and the groom's day so they should be made to feel very special. Know the couple well so that they don't feel uncomfortable while posing for you.
