4 Wedding Photography Tips | Digital Cameras


There’s a huge market right now for really
good wedding photography, and for obvious reasons. It’s a really special moment in people’s lives
and they want it documented. So another question we get a lot at Popular
Photography is, “How can I take better wedding photographs?” The best tip I could give would be have an
itinerary. Sit down with the bride and groom before the
wedding and have an itinerary of the shots they want you to get. And bounce ideas off of each other and just
come up with a solid list of really easy shots that you can bang out through the course of
the ceremony. That way you’re going to get everything that
they want plus all the other candids you get. Another really great tip is to look for just
really candid moments. They may not involve the bride and groom. It might be the grandmother or the aunt or
the uncle. But just keep your eyes open for anything
emotional, anything out of the ordinary, small details, things like that. Variety is always king. You know, the more you shoot the more great
photos you’ll get. When I shoot weddings I like to shoot with
two cameras in the same way that I would shoot maybe a photojournalism event with a wide
angle and a zoom lens on one camera and a wide angle on the other. This just gives me more versatility to move
around. So maybe the bride and groom are hugging. Shoot with a wide angle lens to get the full
shot. Bring the zoom in to get maybe a close up
of her ring on his back, something like that. Another really important thing to remember
is to have a ton of memory cards. The absolute worst situation you can be in
is be halfway through the ceremony and have no photos left, no space left and be deleting
them. Because chances are you’re going to keep missing
more and more moments. So just make sure you’re thoroughly prepared,
you know, to spend the entire day shooting. And just shoot a lot. You know, get those special moments, because
these are photographs that people are going to look back on for years and years and cherish. So, yeah, don’t it up man.
