Generally, wedding photography is one of the most thrilling type of photography since you need to consider a lot of things such as the camera and lens to use, the couple’s wedding concepts and ideas and more.
In this article, we will focus more on how photographers prepare before the wedding shoot.
Essentially, the first thing you need to do is make sure that you have the right photography equipment (camera, extra lenses, battery, tripod, photo editing tool like Lightroom, ready to use wedding preset for Lightroom by Sleeklens and drone if possible). Obviously, you have to invest your earnings with the right set of equipment.
Wedding photography is more convenient and easy when you have two sets of DSLR camera. I recommend that you use two advanced DSLR cameras. Why? Aside from the fact that you don’t need to change batteries every now and then, you can also see the difference and choose which is more appropriate between the two images.
Also, owning two sets of DSLR cameras is more reliable. You don’t know when will your other camera will fail or not. It is much safer to bring extra cameras with you for you not to compromise the time and effort of your clients.
The next thing you need to prepare is a set of memory cards. Expect to run out of storage on that day since you would want to capture everything there. Also, just like anything, you can’t expect one memory card to work perfectly fine. So, it’s better to bring a lot of extras than sorry.
The next thing that we will discuss is not a thing, but rather a question to ponder on. When shooting a wedding, you should always know when to use the flash or not. Ideally, photographers don’t use flash since it’s annoying to the eye.
Lastly and most importantly, you need to be skilled enough with lightings, and the basics of photography for you to produce the best and perfect wedding shots.
