Wedding Photographer’s Tips & Tricks for Perfect Photos


There are three key considerations to take into account when getting great wedding photographs. These are – the light, the location and a good attitude. This infographic goes through the little details that you need to know about.

Speak to your photographer about the editing of the photographs afterwards and what you are expected to get. Make sure and identify the style you want, especially if you are having a themed wedding. Have a look at photographer portfolios online to get some inspiration.

Draw up an itinerary of the day, as timing is key when organising photography, especially with a full Bridal party and extended family. Check your travel times to the venue or if you have a specific photography location agreed upon in advance.

Think location, location, location. It is important, but be realistic on how long it takes to get there and back, especially if it’s a separate location to your wedding reception.

Red carpets might look great, but on camera they can cause a red glow on the skin, so best to avoid them. Make sure to avoid the sunlight where possible as it can be the cause of you squinting your eyes, get sun burnt and cast shadows on the photographs,

When posing for photographs try to smile and relax. Enjoy the day and the time with your new husband or wife. Every Bride should get professional hair and makeup on the day but also have a trial run a few weeks before the wedding.
