Additional Photography Information:
Although experienced, professional wedding photographers know things well and they need no advice when it comes to shooting a wedding, yet there is always a room to improvement at all stages. All photographers need to get ready for the big day of bride and groom with their cameras and skills. Below-mentioned are some of the tips that both professional as well as less-experienced photographers must know before they take next shot. These include:
Meet bride and groom before their nuptial day
A photographer needs to have a meeting with bride and groom to discuss their expectations and the style of photography matching their taste and need. Let them decide with some of your past works and styles. Explain them what is the difference between colour and monochrome images or a mixture of both. It will be great if you can have a discussion about print numbers, sizes and cost.
Create a shot list
After your brief meeting with bride and groom, it is high time to pen down a list of all the shots that you need to take with reference to all key wedding events. Keep a vigil eye on the time factor to make a balance between timing of different events. It will be greater if you can list all the people that you are going to be photographing in each group. Send the list to the bride and groom with other people who are going to take part in group photo so that you can make things more happening on the special day.
Visit the venue in advance
Many smart photographers leave no stone unturned to make a real difference and like to visit the wedding venue in advance before the big wedding day. It will help them review the position of the sun, lighting option, attractive backgrounds and find the best shooting locations. Advanced visit to the location will help them know more about dry and wet weather locations and avoid direct sun light. Also search various wedding locations online to have more interesting ideas for photographs.
Complete your homework
When you are going to shoot a big day, you should have your kit ready and complete. Make sure, your cameras and lenses are highly functional and are ready for the wedding. Charge up your batteries and download images from memory cards and put them in a format to shoot. Don't forget to clean your lenses and check cameras' sensors. Check out the capacity of memory. Taking a spare battery for the big occasion will really help you. Also take your battery charger to charge batteries in emergency cases.
These simple tips will give professional wedding photographers more assistance and let them go for expert wedding photography on a big day.
