Moodzie realizes that a wedding is one of the most precious days of a couple’s life. If one himself is a wedding photographer, then they will be responsible to capture the best moments and create great memories for the respective couple. Moodzie will share some of the best tips to take great photos and also avoid common mistakes. Wedding photography is different from other types of photography, as weddings are a one-tome event, thus the room for error is very marginal, whereas on other types of photography you can re-take photos, and edit stuff out, in wedding photography you have to be much more precise. First challenge a wedding photographer will have to face is either the stressed bride, or the families of the couple, as naturally they will want the photos to be perfect and something they may cherish for the rest of their lives. Moodzie also realizes, that weddings are very short usually only a few hours, hence you must capture nearly every moment, and then edit it later onwards. Moodzie believes, that before starting your own wedding photography business one should first learn from the pros, basically assist a wedding photographer for lesser money, but learn from them, what works well and what doesn’t, as this will make you an experienced photographer once you start up your own business.
Moodzie also believes, that a key part of wedding photography goes into investing in a great camera, as naturally you will be using it much of the time, and it is your main investment, thus make sure it is optimal for your task, and also has no errors needing to be fixed. Many weddings are very large, and also require tons of equipment to capture photos, thus Moodzie believes it is best to hire an assistant or a partner to go along with, as it can be tough to carry the equipment alone, and also near impossible to capture everything alone. Planning, yes Moodzie believes that pre-planning similarly to how the couple does before a wedding, as it is very important a photographer knows when and where to take the photos, also knowing which guests or sights he or she should capture first. Lastly, a tip by Moodzie would be to interact with the guests, look for smiles, and natural reactions, as those will always be the most memorable photos at any wedding, something the couple and their family will cherish for a long time.
