Four Lesser Known but Very Helpful Tips for Wedding Photographers

Being a wedding photographer is tough enough, but there are some small steps you can take to make your job easier that really add up in the long run. This helpful video will give your four lesser discussed ideas to make your wedding photography life just a little better. 

Coming to you from Wes Perry, this awesome video discusses four ways to make your job easier as a wedding photographer, ranging from improving your photography to taking care of your health so you can withstand the long hours and hard work with a bit more resiliency. In the video, Perry mentions Soylent. I'm personally also a big fan of it; I've drank it for a couple of years now and find that it provides very balanced energy that lasts for quite a few hours while leaving me feeling sufficiently satiated. I'm personally a fan of the Coffiest flavor, as it packs some caffeine that can be a nice pick-me-up around the middle of the afternoon. I also agree with Perry on the subject of footwear: a comfortable and properly supportive pair of shoes can make all the difference when you're working. Check out the video above for more helpful tips.

If I were you, I'd demand my money back that FS charged you to join. No...wait...

Or at least give me a transcript of the video so I can read it or watch it.

Seriously if you have time to write a couple of lines what the video is about, you could as well finish writing the points as well. Love to have my data utilised well.

tl;dw

1 - Comfortable Footwear (00:27)
2 - Bring snacks/drinks, just nothing too sugary (02:30)
3 - Sticky tack, for macro photos of rings n’ stuff (04:11)
4 - Speaking of ring shots, use reflective paper you can get from the dollar store (05:48)

Once again, please stop with the videos. I have skipped numerous articles cause watching videos is a pain.

Just as important as good shoes, wear knee-length compression socks. They will make even more of a difference on the day after a wedding as good shoes.

That's a great idea; I never thought of that!

I do that as well...but who wants to show their socks on YouTube? 😏

No problem with the videos. I don't watch them all because not all of them are relevant for me, but the videos that are, I enjoy. I do check into the comments though. I'm always amazed by the amount of disdain people have for a site that doesn't cost one a red cent. Human nature is a funny thing.
