5 Tips for Aspiring Wedding Photographers

Last Updated :

“A stethoscope does not make a doctor, and a camera does not make a photographer.” Weddings are inspiring and wedding photography for an aspiring wedding photographer can be a satisfying journey, a journey that can bring out the best from the photographer. A good traveler will be equipped for the road ahead, and a photographer needs to know about resources, and how to journey ahead, set milestones and achieve them too.

5 Tips for Aspiring Wedding Photographers:


1. Set your goals

As an aspiring wedding photographer, it is best to begin your journey with knowing why you wish to traverse the path and set some concrete goals. Also make sure that your goals are time-lined so that you know by when you wish to reach your goals. Setting goals will also clearly define your journey and your further steps ahead.

2. Don’t follow, make your style

Everyone seems to be with a camera today, and well cameras really don’t make a photographer, it needs sheer passion and vision to be a photographer. So don’t just follow, learn, explore and make your own style. You would be recognized for your work, and for that you must know your strengths and your style, which reflects the best in you.

3. Invest in yourself

Invest a lot in yourself and your tools. Wedding photography needs some pretty expensive resources and it is best to plan your buys, and save up for the essential gear. Spend a lot of time on learning the techniques, observe, research and also it is good to be an intern so that you could get a more confident grip photographing and gives you the general awareness of what happens on ground in the area, which you will soon be working.

4. Feedback helps

Exploring and experimenting with your trial shots need a photo expert opinion. Feedback often helps you get a perspective, which will help you find firmer ground. It is nice to share your captures with friends, family, social network and to formal photographer associations and experts. Each will give you a different perspective and help you learn more.

5. Practice keeps you going

How does a sportsperson achieve milestones? It is by practicing the sport every single day. As a photographer, practicing your techniques, mastering and knowing your gear is what will help you on that big day. It will be a smooth run when you’ve practiced long hours and you have experimented with every single aspect and you are truly prepared for the challenges, which a wedding ceremony has to offer.

PicBackMan does exactly what it's supposed to. It's quick and efficient. It runs unobtrusively in the background and has done an excellent job of uploading more than 300GB of photos to 2 different services. After having lost a lot of personal memories to a hard drive crash, it's nice to know that my photos are safe in 2 different places.

LOVE this program! Works better than ANY other program out there that I have found to upload thousands of pictures WITH SUB-FOLDERS to SmugMug! Thank you so much for what you do! :) #happycustomer

I pointed PicBackMan at a directory structure, and next time I looked - all the photos had uploaded! Pretty cool. I use SmugMug and while I really like it, the process of creating directories in is pretty laborious when you need to make 80+ at a time. This was a breeze. Thank you!
