Recently entered a few favorite photos into a global contest. I'd love to share with you our submission that made it into the top 30% of the 18,800+ photos submitted to the Wedding Details category! Considering the caliber of the submissions we saw, it was so exciting to see a photo make it so far! We still have a few more screen shots from the contest to share over the next couple of days...
There is a difference between completely setting up the photo and creating a moment. This isn’t an easy skill to have as a photographer. Everyone wants candid photos, but sometimes to get a candid photo, you’ve got to work some magic.
Communicating with your clients during the photo session is so important. Cheer them on if they’re comfortable and getting all cute! Guide them if they appear uncomfortable. It’s important to get a feel for what your clients like and don’t like! And there is a huge plus as a photographer if you know the difference between forcing fake photos verses guiding and creating real, fun moments!
