Tips for photographing weddings More and more photographers are starting or want to start in the world of the social report. In my case, I cannot speak of an experience of many years as it is a field in which I just started, but these first tests have allowed me to realize several things I would like to share with you.
Then I make a “list beta” with some tips for wedding photos.
Tips for photographing weddings
First contact: Talk to the couple and ask them what they want exactly. Some just want five beautiful pictures of pose and you’re done, others also want you to be at the ceremony, as well as for group photos. Some ask you to stay up dancing; even you might also be interested in days after the wedding to do some photo sessions on other different sites with more calm.
Price: Given the above, let them a budget, based on your working hours will assume. Not only the wedding day, also remembers the time you spend editing them later. Nor will you charge the same if you go to get photos in a flash drive or you do an album. Obviously this will last you a few hours at the computer. Do not give away your job, but not overdo it. Talk to other photographers in the industry will serve to orient at prices that are usually given.
It meets the couple for coffee. Make trust you, so when you have to do them photos do not be a stranger to them and be calm before the camera. You can ask them how they met, what your tastes are, what hobbies are, how they work … this information will give you ideas for you to think about what kind of photos you can do. The more personalized, most original will be your work and time will be happier. As an example, look at this photographer Wojtek made Kornet wedding photo on bloggers and travel Adri Gosi . The photo could not be timelier.
Planning: The wedding day time flies as if they were minutes 30 seconds. It is therefore important that before the big day arrives; plan all your work well. Grab ideas by looking lots of pictures of other photographers, think the photos in advance and calculates the time of each, as well as transportation if the need to do. Nor is nice to have a plan B, if the wedding day things do not go as expected (the bride leaves hairdressing later, it starts to rain …).
After they are married, usually disappear nerves and is a good time to do a photo shoot without the pressure of those minutes 30 seconds we mentioned above. Be another ordinary day has interesting advantages like taking pictures with better light at dusk or dawn, move to more sites, etc…
Surely there are many points that I’m overlooking and yet would have to consider. So what advice would you add to wedding photos?
