Tuts+ Tips for Wedding Wins
- Communication is key. Knowing the running order and key people in the party is essential. Communication works both ways, too – make sure the couple know what your role will be on their big day.
- Have backups, but don’t carry too much. Keep extras nearby in a secure location or locked in the boot of your car – don’t try to carry everything with you or you’ll spend more time lugging gear around than you will shooting.
- Don’t forget audio. We can get so caught up in visuals that it’s easy to forget you need great audio too. Place microphones appropriately for speeches or see if you can plug into the PA system if they’re using one.
- Remember B-roll. If you can have a second shooter, great! If not, then try to get into rooms before anyone else arrives to capture all the little details.
- Try and capture people interacting naturally – this may mean you have to practice being stealthy!
