Wedding Photography is a photographic genre that captures images of a couple on their special day. It is a highly specialized and professional field that can offer a high level of satisfaction and career fulfillment to photographers who have superior people skills and an eye for creative imagery.
Shooting styles vary from a traditional, classically-inspired style that includes posed family portraits and other formal photos to a more photojournalistic approach that aims to capture the day as it unfolds. The traditional style often involves a long lead-time before the wedding and the use of film.
Photographers also need to know their gear and how it works well with different settings. Familiarize yourself with your camera’s lenses and shooting modes and test them out in advance.
Make a Shot List
Before the wedding, make a shot list of all the important moments that you will be trying to capture. This will give you a clear picture of where to go and who to shoot during the ceremony and reception.
Keep a Backup Plan
Back up your pictures regularly to avoid losing them all if the card is stolen or your computer crashes. You can backup them to a USB drive or a cloud service.
Take RAW shots
Using RAW mode helps you capture every detail that’s in the frame without sacrificing image quality. However, this mode can create more pressure on the camera’s system and fill up the memory faster. This means that you need to have high-quality memory cards and batteries.
