Raise your hand if you've ever shot a wedding. Yeah, I know; most of us photographers at some point in our career have either dabbled in or have been full-time wedding photographers. For many, shooting weddings is the first time you get paid for your craft. If you're just getting started in the wedding industry, check out this video with Pye Jirsa from SLR Lounge and Jay P. Morgan from Slanted Lens as they discuss 10 tips for wedding photography.
When it comes to shooting weddings with a team, organization is key. Jirsa gives you some great advice for using websites and apps to help you keep your team on the same page and same time. Seriously, it helps so much when you sync your cameras together; you'll thank yourself later while editing. Another great tip is creating mood boards for your client. There are a ton of sites, and even Pinterest would be great for this. This helps you and your client have the same vision, so when it comes to the big day, they don't have to worry, and you can get their perfect shots. Also, do yourself a favor, and download Sun Seeker. When you're location scouting, you can use the app to see where the light will be to help you plan accordingly so you can find the best light on the wedding day. It will help you save time, and your couple will think you're a magician.
