There are many challenges to succeed when we are going to photograph a wedding and it can be a stressful day, even for the most experienced photographers. Here are some tips to make this work easier.

Let's start

- Preparation Is The Key

Many things can go wrong in the day, so we need to be well prepared. We must have a backup plan (in case of bad weather), charged batteries, blank memory cards, think about the routes and the time to get to the places and get a full day itinerary so we know what will happen in the next moment. If possible, we attend the rehearsal of the ceremony where a large amount of information is gathered about possible positions to shoot from the lighting, the order of the ceremony, etc.

- Shoot The Small Details.

The photograph of the rings, backs of dresses, shoes, flowers, table arrangements, menus, etc. This helps make the final album an extra dimension. It is good to investigate a little before the big day, like seeing wedding magazines or similar, to have a little inspiration.

- Use Two Cameras.

Pray, borrow or rent an extra camera for the day - using a different objective. Let's try to take pictures with a wide-angle lens (ideal for natural photos and in confined spaces (especially before the ceremony at the stage of preparing the day) and a longer lens (which can be useful to have something as large as 200 mm if you can get one).

- Consider The Funds.

One of the challenges of weddings is that there are often people who go everywhere - including the funds from our shots. Especially in the formal sphere, it is a good idea to go out looking for good funds in advance. The ideals that we are going to want are clear areas and places with shade so it does not give direct sunlight since it is unlikely that people walk in the background.

- Group Shots.

One thing that is very good to try at weddings is to take a picture of everyone who is present, all in one shot. The way this is done is to make arrangements for a place that we can rise above everyone immediately after the ceremony. This could mean getting a ladder, a balcony or even climbing on a roof. The beauty of standing tall is that everyone's faces enter the frame and can adapt to a large number of people in a single capture.

The key is to be able to get everyone to be in the place we want to be placed quickly and be prepared to take the shot without having everyone standing around for a long time. The best way to get everyone to the place is to put the bride and groom there and have a couple of helpers to take everyone in that direction.

- The Ceremony.

This important part of the wedding day can be technically difficult. There is no second chance and we have to have good ingenuity. In this type of situation, it is best to change from program or semi-automatic modes to manual to be able to have full control over the camera settings.

There is often limited light, so we will have to set the sensitivity to ISO 800 or ISO 1600. Let's keep the white balance in automatic unless there are difficult light sources - in which case, we perform a white balance reading previously.

During the reception, we will have to grab the bride and groom for about 15 minutes. Let's make sure we have all the equipment we need, which should include a ladder and a reflector.

It is essential to have a plan . Let's try to work with three locations previously explored in our mind. We can even use walking to and from places to make different shots; lie on the grass and shoot the couple walking towards us. We can search for funds, such as doors, bars, stairs, walls, wallpaper, or any other architectural detail of interest. Even the seemingly more mundane place will have some large areas if you look closely.

We start with the couple in a scene that generally using a wide-angle lens and then use the zoom to get a tight shot. It is important to also get the bride alone to take the boyfriend out of the picture for some unique photos of her. We shot a full body, half body and a shot in the head, taking several photos and changing the attitude or direction of the look slightly between each frame.

- Fireworks.

Let's end the night with a bang! If you're starting wedding photography, stay all night just for the experience. As you progress, be sure to charge extra for a stay until later. Sometimes fireworks can take place very late. The brightness of the fireworks and how long they last will affect the exposures.
