Wedding photography – rewarding and sought after niche
The first thing that you need to know about wedding photography is the fact that it is currently one of the most sought after niches in paid professional photography. You will be able to charge a premium for your services in wedding photography. More than that, what you can be quite rest assured of is that it is one of the most rewarding niches out there as well. When you come to think about it, your clients are basically entrusting you with one of the most important days of their lives. This is both an honor and a responsibility. You need to make sure that you are able to move around a lot and really keep up with the moments and events as they happen, no matter how difficult it may turn out to be. You need to make sure that you are able to really move around and follow through the events of the day.
Make sure that you get to wear a comfortable pair of shoes in the process.
You need something that will be able to help you last all throughout the rest of the wedding photo shoot. Although it may at times seem a bit tempting to reach out for that attractive pair of shoes that look really great but aren’t really that comfortable, you should take a step back and really think things through again.
Go for a pair of shoes that are both comfortable and look great for your outfit. You don’t always have to choose one over the other at the end of it all. Your feet will thank you for it at the end of the day. The way that you feel factors in quite importantly during the wedding photo shoot. You need to be in your best possible shape and you need to really be comfortable enough and confident enough to carry things through with the tasks that you will need to go through with in your wedding photo shoot. You have to remember that no one really likes a grumpy wedding photographer and it will be next to impossible to smile from ear to ear for about three hours straight or more if your feet hurt.
Manage people well
Manage the people who are trying to disrupt your photo shoot by trying to take photos of their own while you are going through your shots as well. You need to handle things like these carefully. You need to learn some crowd management skills to make sure that you do not step on anyone’s toes and so that you do not end up offending anyone when you are at the point wherein you are telling them that they can’t do what they want all of the time. You should work on some kind of solution that will both work for you and for what you those people are trying to achieve as well at the same time. Give them a few minutes in between takes so take photos of their own so that they don’t end up disrupting your shooting process when you are going through your shots.
