Wear comfortable shoes.
As a wedding photographer, the challenge has always been being able to keep up with the events of the day. This is something that you will really need to prep for one way or the other because of the fact that there are so many things that you will have to consider, mainly, you start of with the shoes. When you are on the lookout for shoes to wear as a wedding photographer, one thing that can really help urge you on towards the right direction is thinking about the fact that you are most likely going to live in those shoes for the next 10 hours or more, if you’re not so lucky. This means that there are so many things that could possibly happen and go wrong somewhere along the way. You need to opt for shoes that are fashionable and something that suits your tastes well as well as something that will be comfortable enough for you to run around in during the wedding event. Don’t even think about wearing heels. Just remove it from your list of possible options and move on with it. Heels will not do you any favors as a wedding photographer.
Manage the annoying snap shooters during the wedding.
Camera phones and even professional grade camera equipment are everywhere. Anyone can get them and they are not that expensive, at least not as expensive as they used to be, which makes them easily attainable to the regular folk. Although this may be the case, this can bring in some real problems for you when you are shooting as a wedding photographer because people will always try to go ahead and sneak some of their own shots in whenever they can and for as long as there are windows of opportunity to go ahead and do so. Take care of it as much as possible. Talk to them and let them know that this is something that can be potentially distracting for the subjects. With too many cameras trained on them at the same time, they won’t all look at the same lens all at once and this can really mess up the dynamics of your shooting session. Give them their own time to shoot their photos so that you don’t ever have to clash about it during the wedding.
Prioritize your initial client discussion.
The initial discussion is what will pave the way towards a successful and a productive wedding photo coverage. Pay attention to what your clients are trying to tell you because these are things that can really help you to pull through as a great Los Angeles wedding photographer in the long run and this is something that will really pave the way for a better relationship with your clients at the end of the day. Get a notebook out and list things out as you go along so that you will be able to make sure that you don’t forget anything or allow anything to fall right into the cracks.
