Beginner's Guide to Graceful Wedding Photography

Last Updated :

The enchantment of a wedding remains, and for the couple and folks they relive it quite often with the photo album. Remember you are not just photo shooting, you are capturing memories for a lifetime and this is a great responsibility. With immense effort the grace in captures can easily be put forth.

Here are some tips for wedding photography beginners:


1. Seek and find your style

Research on different wedding photography styles, the styles from traditional, to contemporary, reportage and documentary styles. Dig deep within and be really honest to know your style, to know which style brings out the best from you. Equally figure out a perfect style for your clients, every couple has their own aura and the style should reflect it.

2. There is always a story

Well, there is always a story, and the photographer listening intently will know how to capture the wedding rituals, and every aspect and element that bring the story alive. Remember to change your perspective, and keep an open mind to look for details.

3. Soften flash

Natural looks are a delight, and age-old techniques to bounce flash help, ease the hard shadows, which are a usual worry. You can try and experiment with inexpensive options such as tissue papers, which work as flash diffusers.

4. Turn off the sound

Wedding rituals need their own space and it is nice when photographers can do their job being as unobtrusive as possible. So one can definitely take care of that audio effect of the shutter, which tends to be a distraction at times.

5. Relax

It is nice to be seamlessly a part of wedding rituals, go as per your detailed plan. Go with the rhythm and if things go wrong, they always will, relax and figure out your best way not to miss out any special moment, remember the couple would really appreciate this. Being stressed will not help your creatives and if you are relaxed the subjects will also reflect the same and you will have those perfect shots. So simple be a part of the event, have fun, capture your magical moments.

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!
