Talk to the bride about the things that she would like to get out of your wedding photography service.
The first thing that you would need to make sure that you are always able to do would be to have a good and long talk with your clients to make sure that you know exactly what they are looking for in a wedding photographer, to know what they have envisioned for the event, and to discuss whether or not these are things that you will be able to deliver or make good on when it all comes down to it. You need to make sure that before you get any kind of agreements signed, that everything has been laid out to the clients out in the open and that there should be no unpleasant surprises from there on out. Be completely transparent to the clients. They need to know exactly what they are getting from the service, how much they should be paying, when they are getting the final products, and so on and so forth.
Ask the couple to kiss slowly for wedding photography.
More often than not, the kiss only lasts for a split second or so. That’s not something that the camera will be able to document well enough especially since moments like that breeze by with hardly anyone being able to properly document it. Talk to the couple and ask them if they can prolong the kiss a little longer than usual. There is a pretty good chance that you won’t get a lot of complaints out of this. This is something that will be fairly easy for them to do and most couples are game when it comes to requests like these anyway. Brief them ahead of time. This may seem like a really small thing at first but something like these can really make a whole world of difference for you and for the photos that you are trying to pull off.
Bring a few props along to embellish the wedding photography shoot.
Props can really bring out the fun factor in a wedding photo shoot. You should seriously consider using them if you want something interesting and different in your photos. Check out the theme of the wedding and try to make sure that whatever props you decide on will really get to work well with what you are bringing with you to the shoot. Most of these wedding props are stuff that you will actually be able to more or less make yourself out of everyday items so it shouldn’t be too hard to get some props together for your wedding photo shoot when it all comes down to it.
Figure out what you camera can to and work out the technicalities.
You want have enough time to figure things out during the wedding photography shoot. The last thing you would want to do is stop mid step right in the middle of the bridal march because you had to fumble with the camera settings because you don’t know them by heart. Spare yourself from all of that embarrassment and know your camera like the back of your hand. Attend some classes teaching you the technical fundamentals if you have to. Practice with your camera any chance you get and be as well equipped as you possibly can.
