Top 10 tips to add charm to the photos at a wedding

Guest Post:  Daniel Lewis

The wedding is one of the most important things in your life, and probably one of the busiest. From choosing the people who will walk with you down the aisle and your wedding dress to wedding necessities such as invitations, receptions, and of course photography to capture every moment. Some couples take almost a year just to get everything ready and perfect for the day they will be one.

Now, as a photographer, you do not want to waste those long preparations and ruin a supposedly perfect wedding. If you want to further impress your clients and make their day unforgettable, read this 10 tips that can make their wedding photos more awesome and charming.

 

1.     Capture every first

Whether it is the first kiss as couples or their first dance as a couple, you need to capture every first that happens. You need to be alert and attentive for such moments since they happen really fast. However, if you do get good shots of such moments, you will give the couple a memory for a lifetime.

2.     Look for Smiles

There are countless smiles during the wedding day. But there hidden pearls you might not notice quickly that can provide you a great shot. I am referring to kid’s laughter, kids enjoying the chocolate fountain and other sparkling moments. Such moments cannot be planned or created, these are original and rare. Look for such moment and do not even hesitate to click. The couple will surely love these photos.

 

3.     Shoot the reactions

Even though the couple might be the happiest people at the moment, you will also notice that there are other people who also enjoy this wedding. Those priceless expressions of families, relatives, and friends deserve to be captured. While you’re busy taking pictures of the newlywed make sure that your partner takes as many happy pictures of families and friends as they can.

The couples might be busy in their own world that they cannot focus on other people’s happiness, but you can show it to them later through the photos.

 

4.     Don’t forget about the smallest preparation details

Flower arrangements, table settings, dress details and even the rings— these are the smallest detail that most people won’t notice during the wedding. However, such small details took hours and planned carefully by the couple. They deserved to be photograph so that the couple will always be reminded of the things they’ve been through in order to have a perfect wedding. Also, such small things will be the very thing to complete any wedding album.

5.     Friends are Important

Friends of the groom and bride are the life of the wedding. During the wedding, expect to see them taking selfies with the couples every side and around corners. Seize, those moments and take stolen shots of those moments of happiness and enjoyment.

6.     Make Use of Continuous Shooting Mode

On wedding days, having the ability to shoot many images fast is really handy. So, make use of your camera’s continuous shooting mode. Sometimes it is the shot after a formal shot where everyone is relaxed that really captures the moment!

7.     Take a photo of everyone

And I literally mean everyone who attended the wedding. This might be hard to achieve, however, this can be a great summary of the wedding. You should be higher up than everyone else during this shot which can involve bringing a ladder with you or taking the shot from a balcony.

8.     Little Things mean a lot

Be alert and watch for the tiniest display of affection; a mother shedding tears around the corner, a father holding her daughter’s hand tightly, or the groom kissing his bride’s hands. Couples love seeing such moments those were unexpected and spontaneous.

9.     Be the first one to arrive

As a photographer, you should always and always be the first one to show up— whether in the church or at the reception. You need to capture every corner and nook of the event; the long-planned decorations or the reception’s preparation for the guests’ any second arrival.

 

10.                         Add photobooths

Suggest the couples to add or rent a photobooth at their wedding. Photobooth does not focus on the bride and groom, but to those who attended your wedding. A wedding photobooth included different props for people to use and make silly poses. You can ask for assistance from amateur photographers to be in charge of the photobooth. So when the couple added the pictures taken in the photobooth, they will be reminded that on their wedding day, they might be the happiest, but looking at the pictures they will know that the people who attended their wedding were happier for them.

 

The wedding is a valuable event in a couple’s journey, and it’s something that they would want

to capture and immortalize via images to cherish on forever. Being the one assigned to such task, either you are a paid professional photographer or just someone who wants to save the moment, it is important to apply our tips to add charm to the photos you’ll take in the wedding. Having photo booth as we mentioned also gives fun activity to the visitors as the couples would really be busy while the ceremony and party are taking place, so services of this booth included different props for people to use and make silly poses for their entertainment.
