Preparation is Key: Before the wedding day, I communicated extensively with the couple to understand their expectations, key moments, and any specific cultural traditions that need to be captured.
I familiarized myself with the wedding venue in advance. I identified key locations for the ceremony, reception, and group photos. This helped me to move efficiently on the big day.
I ensured I had my 2 cameras gear, extra batteries, memory cards, and backup equipment. With such a large event, it's crucial to be prepared for any technical issues.
Work with the couple to create a shot list, outlining important family members, cultural rituals, and specific group shots they wish to have.
While I was photographing the main events, consider having assistants or second shooters to capture candid moments and different angles during the ceremony and reception.
