In my years of shooting wedding photography, there has been just a few couples-to-be who took out time to plan the photo section. I love giving wedding photography tips because, in the end, the whole point of having a ceremony is saving memories worth keeping. It’s 2019 and we have much attention given to social media and the internet. For you to have high-quality, well-organized pictures to share with your friends and family online, make this post your buddy.
What’s a wedding picture plan without bridal train photography? Most brides take dedicate half their planning time to the bridal costumes and accessories. Wedding planners book photographers for the ceremony weeks before the deal day. The only physical proof aside from the wedding certificates is the stunning pictures in your photo album.
So you see why an ample amount of time should be put into wedding shoots? Let’s briefly take a look at a few tips to make you manage and take memorable bridal wedding photos.
Make Enough Time For The Reception
In 2019, in as much as it is important to pay a considerable amount of time to the marriage ceremony itself, the reception time should never be affected. I honestly do not support the idea of having to travel quite a distance to the reception. However, if you have to, include the travel time in your planning. The general standard for a reception time is half an hour, however, I recommend 2-3 hours if possible.
If you have this planned well, you’ll get enough unawares pictures of you and your guest. As everyone would be relaxed and already synced to the reception atmosphere. You don’t want to have sweaty pictures of you and your guests as a result of not planning well for the reception.
Create A Social Media Hashtag
Because it is 2019, couples only print wedding invites for formality sakes. We now have the option of wedding hashtags, posts on social media, email newsletter and so on. These trends now make it easier to reach a wider range of distant family and friends.
Couples hashtags also help your pictures trend to make your day special and be the only thing focused on everyone’s lips. The innovation of hashtags in wedding photography is brilliant, as it also makes those not present at your wedding follow the happenings of your day.
Plan Ahead For Group Shots
If you’ve ever attended a wedding ceremony before planning yours, you can tell that the group photos take as much time as always. Except you plan to have a ceremony with less than a hundred guests in total, you should create a spot for group pictures for your wedding photography. To make this go smooth, run the specific groups you want pictures of with your photographer. Let your photographer be aware of the number of groups in total, and make him stick to those numbers.
Wedding organizers who take group pictures before the reception begins to enjoy the very essence of having a reception. Plan to have your guests arrive early, so you can take the group pictures and save everyone the stress of struggling to have their picture taken.
