As a wedding photographer, you may not always have the chance to photograph in wide-open spaces with beautiful mountains or beaches adding that ‘wow’ factor to your photographs. Your couples might choose indoor venues, or weather conditions may force you to photograph indoors. Even at weddings where you do have a chance to shoot portraits outside, you might have to photograph the ceremony inside a church or any other type of venue. And even though indoor locations can also add a unique touch to wedding photos, indoor venues can sometimes be small or dark or maybe both. However, this doesn’t mean that you can’t create stunning photographs in these situations. It’s all about having some (photography) tricks up your sleeve! From finding natural light sources to creating beautiful silhouettes, this blog offers you 10 tips on how you can improve your indoor wedding photography game even in less than ideal settings.[···]
Couples spend a long time planning their weddings and pay a lot of attention to even the smallest details. The flowers, the cake, the reception set-up, the table settings – they are all planned with purpose and bonus! they make for amazing pictures too. Even though every wedding is different, there are some detail photos that are common at most weddings. From the rings to the dress, there’s likely something in these details that are personally connected to the couple that, when captured, will help you tell a better story.
Planning weddings is so much work. The bride is busy deciding on her gown, her hair, makeup, and handling all the details of the day. She might also be managing some – or maybe most – of the vendors. The groom has his own things to do, like deciding on his suit, what family to invite, or he might even be in charge of some of the details of the wedding as well. The couple has many things running simultaneously. They often forget a few details here and there. Even if they have help, sometimes they skip a few points during discussions with vendors. This might happen when they are booking you as their wedding photographer.
When it comes to posing your couples on the day of their engagement session or wedding, you only get one shot. Well, technically you get thousands of shots…
But the poses that you create in those shots are everything when it comes to taking photos of the bride and groom they can treasure for years to come.[···]
