The wedding report
A wedding photo shoot is one of the few things you keep from your wedding day. This way, it lets you relive the moments but also see the events you may have missed.
In this article, I will give you some handy tips on how to start and end the wedding shoot at a good time. We will also go through which locations work well to the most beautiful wedding photos to make.
The best time to end the wedding shoot.
Depending on the season, sunset is a great time to finish. To see what time the sun sets, type "sunset 1 June 2022" into google and you will immediately see the sunset time.
When everyone goes to the table and there are no further speeches, dinner is a good time to end the wedding shoot.
The opening dance
When you have a opening dance then that's a nice ending to the wedding reportage. So end the reportage with the start of the party.
You can also choose to finish when the party ends or have one hour of the party photographed so you also have the atmosphere.
Choosing a photo location
a good photo location
Searching for a good location can be challenging but with these tips, it is quite easy.
1. Go for a photo location with a lot of variety. For example, consider a location where the background is different such as a botanical garden or a farm. Even a forest can give many different backgrounds as long as there are different plants and trees.
2. Choose a location which is different from a wedding venue because photos will already be taken at the wedding venue itself.
3. See what is on the route so you are close to wedding venue at the end of the photo shoot. This saves unnecessary stress.
Backup photo locations
Always have a plan B
It seems to be sunny all week and yet it starts raining exactly when you want to take the photos. What now?
If you haven't prepared anything at that point, you still have to find a venue at that point. The wedding photographer tries to help with that but the choices are often minimal.
It is most convenient to have too many photo locations for the wedding shoot so that on the day itself you can decide what best suits each weather. So plan at least one indoor location in case it rains. Think: a museum, greenhouse, theatre, factory, farm, ship, restaurant, Ikea, swimming pool, mill etc.
