wedding photography tips

Introduction: Welcome to DRichJr Media's blog! I'm Dowayne, a seasoned wedding photographer with years of experience capturing the magic of weddings. Your wedding day is one of the most important days of your life, and there are some key things you should know to ensure everything goes smoothly. Here are wedding photography tips to help you prepare for your big day from a photographer's perspective.


1. Prioritize Lighting Good lighting is crucial for stunning photos. Natural light is ideal, so consider the time of day when planning your schedule. If your ceremony is indoors, make sure the venue has ample lighting or consider bringing in extra lights.


2. Schedule Enough Time for Each Event Allocate sufficient time for each part of your day, including getting ready, the ceremony, the reception, and photo sessions. Rushed timelines can lead to stress and missed photo opportunities.

3. Have a First Look A first look can be a beautiful, intimate moment for the couple and also allows you to get some great photos out of the way before the ceremony. It can also help calm your nerves.


4. Prepare a Shot List Work with your photographer to create a shot list of must-have photos. This ensures that no important moments or family groupings are missed.


5. Keep the Space Clean When getting ready, keep the area tidy. Clutter can distract from the beauty of the moment in photos. Designate a space for belongings that won't be in the frame.


6. Consider Unplugged Ceremonies Ask guests to put away their devices during the ceremony. This prevents distractions and ensures everyone is present in the moment, resulting in better photos.


7. Coordinate with Your Vendors Ensure that your vendors are on the same page,

especially your wedding planner and photographer. Good coordination can help the day flow smoothly and keep your timeline on track.


8. Plan for Weather Have a contingency plan in case of bad weather, especially if you’re having an outdoor wedding. Discuss alternative photo locations with your photographer.


9. Choose the Right Attire Select wedding attire that you feel comfortable and beautiful in. Consider how your dress and veil will photograph and how they move with you.


10. Trust Your Photographer You’ve chosen your photographer for their expertise and style. Trust their judgment and creativity. Being relaxed and enjoying the day will shine through in your photos.


Conclusion: Your wedding day should be filled with joy and beautiful memories. By keeping these tips in mind, you can ensure that your day is as stress-free and magical as possible.
