Sometimes, it’s alright to let the kids be themselves during the wedding event. Although it may be true that a wedding is one of the most important days in a bride and groom’s life and everything needs to be prim and proper and set up just right but your wedding photography can also gain some kind of variety and character if you let a little more personality show into the things that you are able to create with wedding photography. If there are any kids attending the wedding that you are covering at some point, it really is quite alright if you let them goof off and be themselves at some point. Kids look amazing in the photos when they play around during weddings. You will surely get the adorable factor down pat.
1. Bring a white sheet with you.
The bride will love you for it. There will be certain instances in the shoot wherein the bride will not be too keen to participate with what you would like to do or where you would like to shoot for the fear of running the risk of ruining her wedding dress. If you have been around wedding photography for quite a while now, you will completely understand the fact that brides regard their wedding dresses with a certain sense of reverence and perhaps even with extra caution at some point. Having a white sheet with you that the bride can just conveniently step on while being filmed in areas such as a nearby pond or something will really help you smooth things out a bit.
2. Keep your wits together and go about as calmly as you possibly can.
When the wedding photographer becomes jittery, the bride gets jittery too. That is something that you might want to avoid by all means as much as you can. Slow down a little. Take really deep breath and take things as they come at your own pace and time. Believe it or not, seeing the Berkshire wedding photographer look jumpy and nervous and just about all over the place is the very last thing that a nervous and jittery bride would like to see at some point. Take charge of things and exude a certain aura and level of confidence. It will help the bride out a lot.
3. Remember to always keep the focus on the bride and groom.
At the end of the day, it is really all about the couple. Keep your focus on them and that should pretty much keep you in line. Do not forget this. It can sometimes be easy to get distracted and just slightly sidetracked with all of the fuss going around during the wedding but keep your priorities in place. Laser focus will get you there.
4. Don’t be ashamed to be in funny positions when you’re trying to capture great angles.
Believe it or not, funny squatting is one of the best positions you can ever make in order for you to get a great perspective on the photos you would like to take. Don’t be ashamed if you look funny. What matters is you end up with great looking photos.
