This is the largest collection of wedding photography tips to ever be assembled on one page of the Internet. My hands hurt from typing it, but you can help to ease my pain by sharing this on Facebook and Pinterest after you’re done gorging yourself on these wedding photography tips.
Thanks to the awesome group of photographers on the Improve Photography Facebook Page who pitched in with tips to help me get to 68. I’ve credited each of them in the article.
Wedding Photography Tip #1: Wear comfy shoes
You’re going to walk like you wouldn’t believe as a wedding photographer on a wedding day. Sure, the Stilettos might look good at the wedding reception, but you’ll be the grumpiest wedding photographer on the planet.
Wedding Photography Tip #2: Take out Uncle Bob early with a sharp elbow to the stomach!
It’s funny, but I have seen “Uncle Bob” ruin more wedding photos than you could possibly believe. What I mean by this is that there will (almost) always be someone in the wedding party who likes to get in the way. They either tell people how to pose while you’re trying to get everyone in the right spot, or they step in front of you to take pictures, etc. The wedding photographer must be CONFIDENT and take charge. Simply saying something like “Thanks for your help. I’m trying to do something a little different here. Is it all right with you if I go ahead and get the posing set up here?” It might seem forward, but your couple will be glad to see you moving quickly and getting the photos done correctly.
