Well, if you would ask me about the most exhausting yet pleasurable type of photography, I will definitely tell you a straightforward answer: Wedding Photography.
Why? Because even if I am fully aware that it is a once in a lifetime event for the couple, the whole wedding session preparation is not easy. That’s why I prefer 3 to 6 months wedding preparation since I also need to prepare myself, my abilities and skills to provide the best wedding photography service.
While wedding photography is one of the most tiring photography sessions, I also consider it as a training ground and an add on to my portfolio and experience. The important thing for me when covering a wedding is to see my client(s) happy with my images.
So as a photographer, I would like to share some thoughts and tips on how to become the best wedding photographer in your community. I’m not asking you to follow these tips, instead, I would ask you to internalize and see if these things can help you grow as a photographer.
“Are you sure you can do the job well?” I know most of you (amateurs and professional photographers) know that this simple question matters a lot. Wedding photography is hard, and you don’t want to just accept your clients money and give them nonsense images. Asking yourself this type of question will help you decide whether or not accept the job.
Another thing to before accepting wedding photography offers is to make sure you’re prepared physically, mentally and emotionally. Not just that, you also have to make sure that your photography gears and equipments are intact and functional. In today’s modern era, a camera and a lens is not enough. Photographers often consider using advanced technologies like drones, action camera, photo processing software like Adobe Lightroom with a Lightroom presets for wedding bundle collection.
Basically, these are just some important reminder to ponder on. Hopefully, you can use this as a guide and help you grow as a wedding photographer.
