Be in the right place, at the right time
Photographing the Ceremony is all about helping you to never miss another moment by understanding how to direct and manage your wedding team, while understanding the nuances of common wedding cultures and ceremonies. Our goal has always been to help you create consistently amazing imagery that tells the story in a photojournalistic and artistic way.
manage your photo team to get the most important shots
In the simplest terms, all shooters rely on the lead to be the most dependable shooter when it comes to capturing the most important moments and tell the strongest story. However, it is up to the entire team to add supporting details and cover positions when the lead is occupied or wants to try out new and artistic shots. We’ll show you how to best position your team for optimal success and strong storytelling imagery.
shooter positioning & lens choices
It is highly important to be aware of the focal length choices that your fellow shooters are using to capture the action. If the lead is shooting down the aisle on a wide angle lens, the second shooter should be shooting the ceremony with a tighter focal length, such as a 70-200mm lens. We cover what gear the lead, second, and third should have on hand during this portion of the wedding day so that everyone is well equipped to never miss a moment.

With this solid foundation of information, you can anticipate and create artistic story driven wedding photographs that honor the respective religions, traditions, and cultures of your clients.
