Wedding Photography Strategies You Can Apply

wedding photographyYou know what those shoes aficionados are talking about when they say that a great pair of shoes can really save the day? This is always near the truth more than ever when it comes to the world of wedding photography. What a lot of newcomers to the scene do not know and do not understand is the fact that as a shropshire wedding photographer, they will end up doing a lot of walking and moving around during the wedding event. This is not the friendliest way to go for your feet especially if you did not invest in really great and comfortable shoes in the process. Keep those in mind the next time that you have a wedding photography gig coming up. It may be really tempting to reach out for those killer high heels or for those feet choking brogues but at the end of the day, and even in the succeeding days, your feet will end up killing you for it.

Be quick and alert

Think on your feet when it comes to friends or family members who may end up being nuances in your photo shoot sessions. There will always be someone out there who will try to undermine you as the photographer. They will try to take control of which people get to get in or get out of the frames or whose turn it is to get photographed. They will try to tell people how to pose and where the best spots are for people to pose or maybe step right in front of you and try to take photos themselves. You should not allow these people to take control of your photo shoot. You are the official wedding photographer. You should be holding the reins. Tell them off in such a way that is firm and dismissive yet at the same time fairly friendly and polite as well. This can be a challenge if semantics is really not your strength. Thank them for their input. Let them know that you will definitely keep that in mind. Let them know as well that you got the situation under control and if they could kindly step back so that you can go ahead and take your shots.

Have a serious talk with the bride

Discuss all of the details related to wedding photography as much as you possibly can. Make it to such a point wherein you have everything in black and white and there is very little room left for doubt or discussion. Talk to them if there are any family traditions that they would like to carry through with on the day of the wedding. This is important. You need to make sure that you are in the loop as much as possible so that you more or less know how to manage yourself when those moments come and you will be able to deliver exactly what they are asking for. You need to make sure that open lines of communication are maintained and you need to make sure that you are aware of everything that they would like to do or get done.
