Getting married? Got to be on a duty to take Wedding photos ? This one is for you!
Wedding is once in a lifetime event (at least, that what we all hope for…) that the bride & the groom would like to remember forever.
Wedding photos is what left yo show the children and grandchildren (aside, of course, for a happy couple-hood!).
It is a truly sentimental and happy occasion, that has the opportunity to gather all your friends and family together.
Along the years, it is always fun and nostalgic to look at wedding albums, whether it is our owns’, our friends’ or our family members’ wedding.
Therefore, it is important to know some important techniques and tips to produce stunning wedding photos.
Taking wedding photographs happens in a range of locations: Before the ceremony, getting ready, Inside the church, outside the church and in the final venue.
It is important to learn these locations and learn what you can and can’t do, for example:
Are you allowed to take photos inside the church? If so, can you use the flash inside ?
What’s the expected weather outside? and what is the actual weather? (Of course, hope for a nice, even light! Perfect for group shots!).
And what the final venue is like? Indoors? Outdoors? In noon? or in the evening?
The most important thing is to be able to tell the story:
Catch intimate moments, with relaxed informal shots. In these moments, the bride & groom enjoy the most!
You will have plenty of shots of the bride and the groom together: In the ceremony, dancing their wedding dance, cutting their wedding cake and other “official” moment but also get shots of the bride & groom on their own.
Remember that these wedding photos are a lifetime souvenir so get shots of the wedding guests: Children, family members and friends.
After all, these shots should bring the story of the day !
