    Have A Shot List

Aside from making your shots look good, you’re primary concern is probably to look good on your client’s eyes. To make that happen, the first thing that you should make sure is to get all the shots that they would like to have. How would you know what shots they like? Simple, ask them. Make a list of the specific shots that they want so you won’t miss any.

  • Visit The Locations Beforehand

Professional photographers probably don’t do this, but since you’re still young in the field of wedding photography essex, you still lack experience, know-how, and tricks. So to make up for it, you need to work harder. Visiting the location before the big day will give you ideas on positions, angles, and how the lights could come into play.

  • Be Bold Enough

Standing in the corner won’t get you those amazing shots. Find a great timing, where you won’t disrupt the ceremony, to move around and find that perfect angle. When it comes to those posed shots, instead of making do with how the couple is posed, give them directions about how to stand, where to look or put their hands. They’d be happy to oblige as long as you’ll produce great pictures afterwards.

  • Pay Attention To The Background Too

Don’t just focus on the people when shooting, mind their background too. Make sure that the light, other guest or any random thing is working out for your shot instead of working against it. If your subject has to move to the left or right, or you have to rearrange or remove something from the background say so and do so.

  • Be Prepared

Wedding photography isn’t all about shooting; it also includes a lot of prenup preparations. You won’t believe how things could go wrong in such occasions. To be certain that you’d be able to accomplish your job from start to finish, you have to think ahead. Stashing some extra batteries and memory cards should be a no brainer, know some alternative routes in case of road troubles to avoid being late, and find out as much information as you can about the wedding. You’ll be surprised how much preparedness can save your life and job.
