Wedding photography tips
April 28, 2011

Dear Stay Focussed reader!

Welcome to May's newsletter.

Congratulations to Kate Middleton and Prince WilliamI realise there are some people around the world that can't bear being swamped in Royal Wedding news. Personally I can't wait until tomorrow and will be watching the whole thing on the sofa with my wife, a glass of bubbly and a box of tissues!

I just hope the weather holds for them. We haven't had a drop of rain for weeks now, and yet the forecast for tomorrow is showers. Good for the garden, bad news for weddings!

Anyway, wedding fever has got me thinking that over the coming months there will probably be a fair few of my newsletter subscribers attending weddings. Maybe even a few actually tying the knot.

So now seems to be a good time for some wedding photography tips.

Wedding photography tips

If you want to get some great shots of the bride and groom spend a little time familiarising yourself with the venue and the timings.

  • If you know that the bride and groom will be arriving in flashy cars then don't be the first to enter the venue - wait outside until they pull up.
  • Check backgrounds for 'foreign objects'. This could be anything from a litter bin to a poorly placed drain pipe sticking out of the bride's head!
  • Zoom in close to the bride and groom. They're the focus, not the grassy lawn they're standing on.
  • Follow the pro! If there is a profession photographer present stay close to them if you can. I don't mind hangers on - always gives me someone I can talk cameras to during the day! And you'll get the best angles to shoot from.

The digital wedding photography home page goes into more detail on wedding photography in case you're after even more tips.

See you next month, and to Kate and William - my very best wishes!
