Creative Wedding Photography Shots for an Amateur

Last Updated :

Weddings are inspiring; every corner of the wedding location has positive vibes and a story waiting to be captured. Your unique ability to create stunning images, keeping the emotions and energy of the special day alive will speak volumes. Weddings give you a platform for furthering your niche forte and also develops your signature. So just place a heavy dash of yourself to your shots, and remember be inspired by the wedding you are about to capture and it will reflect in your captures. Follow the tips below and you can become a successful wedding photographer.

Here are a few tips for those creative wedding photography shots:


1. Tell-a-story, make it alive

Each wedding is special, and every couple has a story. What is engaging for the couple is their own story coming alive. So have a heart to heart dialog, research and then connect to the story. Through the day you will find awesome photo opportunities, which will simply bring the entire story together.

2. Emotions are powerful

Smiles, Tears, a bit of nervousness, pride, all emotions speak volumes and are really powerful. Happy smiles of the couple, tears of the bride, the mother of the bride, the nervousness of the father of the bride giving away his daughter, and pride of the parents watching their children taking their vows. An awesome spread of emotions for the photographer. It is nice to focus on emotions and capture them naturally; it gives you some really clean and crisp shots.

3. Showcase personality

Each subject has a special personality, so shots that will best describe their personality will really be appreciated. Try and guide your subjects through the process so that they open and respond to you and you will find that you can showcase their personality in perfect clicks.

4. Capture Energy

Weddings will give you everything you are looking out for. Be a keen observer; look out for the wedding celebrations that are an awesome platform unleashing energy. And try and capture the energy as it spills over.

5. Challenge Yourself

Bring out the best in yourself always, keep challenging yourself. And you will find that you are not only growing as a photographer, but you are connecting to your dream and you will find more satisfaction in the shots you take. Challenge your style, your techniques, which you feel, you always needed to work on, put in more efforts to learn. The big day you will find that would make a world of difference and you would have a confident and positive attitude, which would reflect when you take your shots. Enjoy your own journey as you capture that of your clients!

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!
