1. Do not miss any important shots during your wedding photography coverage.
One of the most common fallout points between the bride and groom and the wedding photography expert they hired is the aspect of any missed important shots during the wedding event. This is not the kind of mistake that you can afford to make especially if you are only new to the wedding photography scene and if you are only starting to more or less establish yourself and work on your branding and reputation when it all comes down to it. The bride in particular will not be all that readily willing to forgive you if there are huge windows of missed moments in the coverage of the most important day in her life.
And to be honest, you owe it to your clients to make sure that there are no lapses whatsoever during your wedding photography shoot. What you can do to avoid this would be to meet with the bride and groom ahead of time so that you can go through the list of shots that they think would be extremely important to the shoot. Once everything is said and done, you should be able to walk away with at least thirty items or so on your list. As the official shropshire wedding photographer, follow through on this list like your life depended on it. You can embellish it by adding a few items of your own.
2. Change up your lenses every now and then if you want some variation in the facial expressions.
There will be times during the actual wedding event wherein you will notice the bride and groom as long as the rest of all of the other guests in attendance starting to get bored, or awkward, or just altogether bored and awkward in the pictures that you are taking. A quick fix to something like this would be for you to shift to a different lens, ideally something that will allow you to keep a fairly good amount of distance and still be table to take the photos that you are shooting as if you are right next to the people being filmed. One of the best lenses for this particular kind of job would be a telephoto lens. So the next time that you see people starting to get tired of having the camera shoved all up in their faces all of the time, mount up that telephoto lens and move over to the back of the room and start shooting your images from there.
3. Ask for the names of the groom and of the maid of honor so that you can consult with them during the actual wedding day.
You will need this particular kind of correspondence for when you are covering the actual wedding day. The bride and the groom may not be available to answer any questions that you may have so getting chummy with the maid of honor and best man who are clearly key players in the wedding process will really make things so much easier for you.
