Tips for Wedding Photography

Tip #1) I wanted to capture a candid moment between the bride and groom for this shot. The 35-150mm allowed me to feel as if I was “in” the scene, as opposed to being far away and zooming in a bunch.

Tip #2) For this shot, I wanted the groom to whisper something special in the bride’s ear. I think their genuine smiles shining through speak for themselves! By zooming in, I was able to give them privacy for this precious moment.

Tip #3) We all know the time women spend on finding their dream wedding ring. Therefore, I wanted to make sure to capture the details of the bride’s ring. Having a longer focal length and wider aperture helped to create that beautiful blur and attention solely on the ring.

Tip #4) To capture this image, we walked alongside the bride and groom. By being on the wider end of the lens and walking with them, it gave us a more “in-the-moment” feel than if we had zoomed in and caught them at a distance.

Tip #5) We wanted to capture all the details going on the background while still maintaining the attention on our couple. By zooming in and using a wide aperture, we were able to blur the details so they wouldn’t be too distracting, but still present. I also had the bride look away from the camera, so she wasn’t tilting her chin down to the camera too much.

Tip #6) We wanted a candid feel for this photo so we had the 35-150mm zoomed in quite a bit. When photographing with dogs, we’ve learned that walking shots are perfect. While our couples look at each other, the dogs do their thing, and it produces a natural looking image!
