Wedding Photography: 5 Tips You Absolutely Must Use For Success

Author : Rick Valence

Weddings are arguably one of the most stressful photography commissions you can get. If you've never taken pictures for someone's wedding before, you may find yourself quite petrified. After all, so many things can go wrong! Fortunately, with these top five wedding photography tips for new photographers, you can enter the situation with a bit more confidence.

1. Be Prepared: It may seem obvious, but when you're dealing with a situation like this, it can't hurt to check and double check to make sure everything is in order. This can mean everything from ensuring you have enough film or memory cards to knowing the area where the wedding is taking place. To give yourself a better idea of what you'll be doing, try attending the wedding rehearsal. This will allow you to get a good idea of what the ceremony will be like as well as provide you with a way to plan where you should be during crucial moments.

2. Be Creative: What many don't realize is that, when capturing someone's special day, you don't always have to focus solely on key moments such as the bride and groom's first kiss or the moment when they cut the cake. Don't be afraid to be creative and spontaneous with your shots. You may end up capturing some truly stunning photos. Some interesting and thoughtful subjects to keep in mind include sudden weather changes, such as sunsets, rainbows, or dramatic storm clouds, or wedding decorations, especially if the bride and groom have gone out of their way to have a themed wedding. These include centerpieces, flowers, wedding cakes, invitations, guest books, party favors, and much more.

3. Be Bold: As with any type of photography, you won't get very far if you're too hesitant or quiet. This can be the most difficult of the top five wedding photography tips for new photographers. You can prevent a lot of trouble in the long run by enlisting some help, for example. If you're doing family portraits, have another family member gather everyone together, as he or she will know better than you which family members should go where. If you're having trouble getting to a certain area, don't be afraid to hold up your camera prominently and politely slip past. Most guests, when confronted with a camera, will realize you're on the job and will do what they can to allow you access.

4. Keep Your Camera Quiet: Depending on the type of camera you choose, the faint sound of the shutter whirring may be inevitable. However, no one likes to have their special moment ruined by the sound of beeping, clicking, or snapping cameras. If possible, bring your quietest model with you or turn off all sounds when taking pictures. Your guests will appreciate it, and you will be able to work without gaining their attention, resulting in a variety of charming candid shots.

5. Remember to Relax: One of the most important things to remember when taking photos for a wedding is not to get so anxious that it affects your work. Nervousness is normal, but people will be able to tell if you aren't confident. Not only does this reflect poorly on your abilities; it can also result in clumsy mistakes. It also affects your posture, which is important in this line of work. If you're too rigid, your reflexes suffer, which can result in you missing that one crucial shot.

By being prepared, not only do you ensure that you'll get the snapshots you want, but you'll also be able to face difficult jobs like these with confidence and grace.
