Taking Candid Wedding Photos
There was an interesting TV show called ‘Photo Finish’ where three different amateur photographers were given a different challenge each week. I thought there were some great tips given on how to capture a wedding day – right from the preparations, to ceremony and the reception.
Interaction tip – stand back and be more of an observer, rather than being ‘in’ the event; keep low key and don’t overwhelm children if you have a loud personality – get down to their level, and allow them to shine or just be.
Final tip – take pictures of personal elements – details of flowers, close-ups of people, and small but important details such as the rings or wedding dress fabric.
What have you found works? Did you capture a great shot by taking a different approach?
