Your wedding proceedings are not complete without having a wedding photography session conducted. However, it’s also not a walk in the park for you to get an awesome shoot. You have a lot to prepare for in order to get amazing wedding shots. To get that done, you’ll need the following:
An awesome shooting location to work with
Inasmuch as it is possible for the photographer to channel some sleek moves. Try to get the best shots, the location actually does a lot of the work. Make sure to select a good location.
A planning assistant
While you’re worrying about the details of your photography session, there’s no doubt that there will be a million other things go running in your mind at the same time. Why carry that burden alone? If you can see that the work might be a bit too much for you to handle, then don’t hesitate to get an effective and reliable assistant.
Enough time to prepare
Whether you will be working with a photography coordinator or not. It is highly recommended that you send a schedule to every party that will be involved in the shoot at least two weeks prior to the big day. That way, everyone is coming prepared and ready for the shoot. Basically, this list will contain everything that you need from the photographer as well as your obligations to him or her as well. A wedding schedule that is sent with enough time makes it possible for proper preparations to be made. And as such, everyone will be able to put all their focus on the shoot when it’s time.
Also, if you’re familiar with the venue, try to visit the place again with the photographer before the big day in order to clearly outline tit and check for the “photographic sweet spots”.
A replacement photographer
As much as you might have everything in order from your end, it is also possible for there to be some crew ups on the side of the photographer. He or she could be sick, or have any other reason to cancel the appointment. To prevent against any unwanted issues, you can just have an assisting photographer n standby.
Also, if it happens that your first choice is available, then having a backup photographer won’t be an entirely bad idea.
Enough food in your stomach for the big day
When making preparations for every wedding photography session. You should ideally know that you’ll be spending quite a lot of time. Apart from changing from location spot to location spot and striking pose after pose. It is also possible for you to have a change of clothes (this is actually really recommended) tat sad, you’ll be in need of all the strength that you can get. Worrying about your wedding on an empty stomach is surely one thing that you don’t want to do.
At least two sets of clothes
When you go for a wedding photography session, please don’t wear the same clothes
I mean, what’s the point?
You’ll look monotonous, and there won’t really be any creativity. Try to have a change of clothes and at least rid yourself of the monotony.
