Here are some nice, practical tips for shooting a wedding ceremony and getting awesome results:
- Know the venue by heart – figure out the best angles, the lighting conditions, and everything that may turn into a possible obstacle. It would be a good idea to go to the location a few days before the event and familiarize with it.
- Wear shoes that aren’t loud – because, you know, you don’t want everyone paying attention to you (instead of the ceremony) when you’re walking around. Or even worse, guests getting uncomfortable when knowing they’re about to be photographed is not fun at all. Keep things quiet.
- Capture the key players – focus on the bride, groom, parents, siblings, grandparents, the best man, the maid of honor, and so on. However, take enough shots of the rest of the guests, as well.
- Various angles – during the ceremony, you can shoot from the front, from above, from one side, and also capture lower angles.
