When you’re having a wedding it’s important to preserve the memories you’re making so that you can have some way to remember your big day in the future. And what better way to do that than taking pictures?
Taking photographs is a great way to capture the happy moments in your wedding, however, there is a difference between good wedding photos, and great wedding photos.
Here are some tips to capture the best of your big day.
1. Preparation is key
Make sure that you are well-prepared for the shoot. You should have the right equipment ready, and make sure that the lighting in the venue is suitable. If not, make sure to arrange for better lights. It’s always better safe than sorry. You don’t want your wedding photos to be dark and dreary.
2. Set expectations with the couple
It’s important to talk it out with the couple what they want to capture. You can’t go around a wedding just taking of bouquets. You need to know what your client wants, or else the event will pass and your customer will be unsatisfied.
3. Turn off the sound on your camera
It’s important to capture your subjects stealthily. Natural poses are always best. One way to capture those moments is by muting your camera.
4. Shoot the small details
Remember that every moment counts. Get those moments that people are having so that you have a great collection of photos. Notice of the surroundings, and even the details of the outfits that people are wearing. Don’t be afraid to go closer.
