- Small Details Count! Key west photographers Miami Hialeah
You’ve imagined how you will look on your big day for months, maybe even for years. Now it’s time to capture it on camera. Take pictures of your manicure, your accessories, your shoes, and your bouquet so you can easily remember every little detail of your party Key west photographers Miami Hialeah
Visit the locations of the different places that you’ll be shooting before the big day. While I’m sure most Pros don’t do this – I find it really helpful to know where we’re going, have an idea of a few positions for shots and to know how the light might come into play. On one or two Key west photographers Miami Hialeah I even visited locations with the couples and took a few test shots (these made nice ‘Key west photographers Miami Hialeahphotos’).

In Key west photographers Miami HialeahPhotography Preparation is Key Key west photographers Miami Hialeah
So much can go wrong on the day – so you need to be well prepared. Have a backup plan (in case of bad weather), have batteries charged, memory cards blank, think about routes and time to get to places and get an itinerary of the full day so you know what’s happening next. If you can, attend the rehearsal of the ceremony where you’ll gather a lot of great information about possible positions to shoot from, the lighting, the order of the ceremony etc Key west photographers Miami Hialeah
Set expectations with the Couple Key west photographers Miami Hialeah
Show them your work/style. Find out what they want to achieve, how many shots they want, what key things they want to be recorded, how the shots will be used (print etc). If you’re charging them for the event, make sure you have the agreement of price in place up front. Key west photographers Miami Hialeah
Turn off the sound on your Camera Key west photographers Miami Hialeah
Beeps during speeches, the kiss and vows don’t add to the event. Switch off sound beforehand and keep it off.
Shoot the small details Key west photographers Miami Hialeah
Photograph rings, backs of dresses, shoes, flowers, table settings, menus etc – this help give the end album an extra dimension. Flick through a Key west photographers Miami Hialeahmagazine in the newsstand for a little inspiration.
Use Two Cameras Key west photographers Miami Hialeah
Beg, borrow, hire or steal an extra camera for the day – set it up with a different lens. I try to shoot with one wide angle lens (great for candid shots and in tight spaces (particularly before the ceremony in the preparation stage of the day) and one longer lens (it can be handy to have something as large as 200mm if you can get your hands on one – I use a 70-200mm). Key west photographers Miami Hialeah
Consider a Second Key west photographers Miami HialeahPhotographer
Having a second backup photographer can be a great strategy. It means less moving around during ceremony and speeches, allows for one to capture the formal shots and the other to get candid shots. It also takes a little pressure off you being ‘the one’ to have to get every shot! Key west photographers Miami Hialeah
Be Bold but Not Obtrusive Key west photographers Miami Hialeah
Timidity won’t get you ‘the shot’ – sometimes you need to be bold to capture a moment. However timing is everything and thinking ahead to get in the right position for key moments are important so as not to disrupt the event. In a ceremony I try to move around at least 4-5 times but try to time this to coincide with songs, sermons or longer readings. While the formal shots are bold, know what you want and ask for it from the couple and their party. You’re driving the show at this point of the day and need to keep things moving.
Learn how to Use Diffused Light Key west photographers Miami Hialeah
The ability to bounce a flash or to diffuse it is key. You’ll find that in many churches that light is very low. If you’re allowed to use a flash (and some churches don’t allow it) think about whether bouncing the flash will work (remember if you bounce off a colored surface it will add a colored cast to the picture) or whether you might want to buy a flash diffuser to soften the light. If you can’t use a flash you’ll need to either use a fast lens at wide apertures and/or bump up the ISO. A lens with image stabilization might also help. Learn more about Using Flash Diffusers and Reflectors.
Shoot in RAW Key west photographers Miami Hialeah
I know that many readers feel that they don’t have the time for shooting in RAW (due to extra processing) but a Key west photographers Miami Hialeah is one time that it can be particularly useful as it gives so much more flexibility to manipulate shots after taking them. Key west photographers Miami Hialeah can present photographers with tricky lighting which result in the need to manipulate exposure and white balance after the fact – RAW will help with this considerably.

Display Your Shots at the Reception Key west photographers Miami Hialeah
One of the great things about digital photography is the immediacy of it as a medium. One of the fun things I’ve seen more and more photographers doing recently is taking a computer to the reception, uploading shots taken earlier in the day and letting them rotate as a slideshow during the evening. This adds a fun element to the night. Key west photographers Miami Hialeah
Consider Your Backgrounds Key west photographers Miami Hialeah
One of the challenges of Key west photographers Miami Hialeah is that there are often people going everywhere – including the backgrounds of your shots. Particularly with the formal shots scope out the area where they’ll be taken ahead of time looking for good backgrounds. Ideally you’ll be wanting uncluttered areas and shaded spots out of direct sunlight where there’s unlikely to be a wandering great aunt wander into the back of the shot.

Don’t Discard Your ‘Mistakes’ Key west photographers Miami Hialeah
The temptation with digital is to check images as you go and to delete those that don’t work immediately. The problem with this is that you might just be getting rid of some of the more interesting and useable images. Keep in mind that images can be cropped or manipulated later to give you some more arty/abstract looking shots that can add real interest to the end album. Key west photographers Miami Hialeah
Change Your Perspective
Get a little creative with your shots. While the majority of the images in the end album will probably be fairly ‘normal’ or formal poses – make sure you mix things up a little by taking shots from down low, up high, at wide angles etc.

One thing that I’ve done at every Key west photographers Miami Hialeah
That I’ve photographed is an attempt to photograph everyone who is in attendance in the one shot.
The way I’ve done this is to arrange for a place that I can get up high above everyone straight after the ceremony.
This might mean getting tall ladder, using a balcony or even climbing on a roof.
The beauty of getting up high is that you get everyone’s face in it and can fit a lot of people in the one shot.
The key is to be able to get everyone to the place you want them to stand quickly
And to be ready to get the shot without having everyone stand around for too long.
I found the best way to get everyone to the spot is to get the bride and groom there and to have a couple of helpers to herd everyone in that direction.
