Indoor Wedding Photography Tips for Amateurs

Last Updated :

Happy faces, beautiful hues, and energetic vibrations, weddings areall this and so much more. It is quite an opportunity to photo shoot a wedding. With many intricate details, which need to be planned and taken care of, it all begins with knowing whether the wedding will be an outdoor destination wedding or one that will have facets indoors. Each wedding has its own unique elements, but a few basics can help plan for the big day better. Here are a few indoor wedding photography tips:

Indoor Wedding Photography Tips:


1. Conceptualize the photo shoot

When the wedding venue is finalized it is best to visit the venue if you can. This will give a first hand feel of how the venue is and you can start conceptualizing the photo shoot. Plan for the big day and start making mental notes about the venue, your frames and the extra gear you would need for the day.

2. Check the light source

Lighting is an essential aspect for the photographer. It can add interesting dimensions during the photo shoot and so it is nice to check out the light source, like windows, chandeliers, candles and other sources. This will help you to plan out the inventory for supplementing the light sources.

3. Basics always work (ISO, Shutter Speed, White Balance)

For the indoor photo shoot, you could keep higher ISO, which will increase the sensitivity to light, select a faster shutter speed and explore the white balance settings. These basics will always work, the settings may need to be tweaked and explored depending on the venue.

4. Using Flash

You may find shadows lingering and to keep them away while capturing your subjects, you may wish to use reflectors. Try exploring on the use of flash. At times you may wish to not use flash and keep the shutter noise to minimal, so as to not disturb your subjects and keep the sanctity of the ceremonies.

5. Be alert

All the conceptualizing and planning, it finally simmers down to the final big day, big moments. For a photographer at heart, and the one who is alert, you will find more than what you really wished for. So keep an open mind, be flexible and you will be able to create magic on the big day.

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!
