As you consider your first or your 101st wedding photography project, it is important to have the necessary back up plan in place. Every photographer needs to have this plan in place if they have any hope of making it through a difficult situation on the actual wedding day. The good news is that with a few well planned and executed wedding photographer tips, you can easily overcome the most common, and even the most challenging, of circumstances.
Tips For Planning For The Unknown
You have no way of knowing what could happen on the wedding day. It could be a controllable problem or something you have no ability to foresee or predict happening. The following tips will help you to plan for some of the more common wedding photographer problems.
- Have a backup plan planned for poor weather. The weather does not cooperate often and for anyone who may be considering outdoor shots, having a few backup locations is quite important. Select locations that you know well or that offer the beauty and glamour of the outdoors, although they are indoors.
- You should plan for your needs on the wedding day. For example, make a list of all equipment and supplies you need to take with you as the wedding photographer. Keep this list on hand and add anything you may forget over the course of a week. Soon, when you have done a number of photography events, this list will be set in stone.
- Plan a route for getting from place to place. Although the famous “just follow me” plan may work when going to locations unfamiliar to you, it is best to have a well laid out plan in place ahead of time. You can use free software online or an in car GPS unit to help you with this process.
- Try to attend the wedding rehearsal. This event is not one where most photographers go, but it can be one of the best things to do so that you can familiarize yourself with the layout of the locations, the people involved and even work with the bride and groom on their particular needs.
Making a few plans ahead of time will save any wedding photographer from problems on their wedding day. Although there is no way to plan for any problem, many times you can rely on these back up plans, and the bride and groom will appreciate you doing so.
