make weddings work for you

For most engaged couples, wedding photography plays a pivotal part in their plans for the big day. Being asked to photograph someone’s wedding is something that any photographer worth their salt would never dream of taking on lightly, and being able to cope with this added sense of responsibility and pressure separates wedding snappers from the rest of the pack. Get it right and your career as a wedding photographer will be incredibly rewarding, both emotionally and financially. But get it wrong, and you risk ruining one of the most important days of a person’s life. No pressure then!

Turning down a job is never an easy thing to do, especially when you’re trying to earn a crust – but if you really don’t feel like you’re the right person for the job, you’ll save yourself a world of hurt by having the guts to say no when your intuition tells you to.

work with your surroundings

Learning how to think on your feet when something doesn’t go to plan is part and parcel of being a wedding photographer. Time will be scarce on the wedding day, even if it’s efficiently run, so you’ll be expected to take charge and provide solutions to any problems that arise. Assuming that the weather conditions are good, there’s also the venue to contend with; and if the venue isn’t all that pleasing on the eye, it’ll be your role to try and make it at least appear so in the photos. One way of doing this is by turning your attention to the bride and groom, who no doubt will be immaculately turned out. Switch over to a longer focal length lens and try capturing some close-ups of the couple having…
