I get asked this a lot, and the fact that this question relates to the wedding photography industry is probably the best news that I could find. Every year, countless couples get married, and many of them ask me for wedding portraits. I get asked this question a lot too, but it’s because I’m a wedding photographer, and a big part of how I’ve grown my business is by working with couples.
Wedding photography is a very demanding profession. For months, photographers must make sure they get their shots taken without worrying about lighting or camera settings. The fact that they are asking for portraits in particular is a very good sign that they are doing things right. It means that they are confident with their talent, they have a good understanding of how to take good pictures, and they have time to do so. In short, it means that they are professionals.
Wedding photography is a demanding profession, but it isn’t all that difficult. I know it sounds like a nightmare, but it isn’t. In general, you can’t be too picky as to how you shoot a wedding. The fact that you can see your pictures online doesn’t mean that the people you’ve chosen to take them are in fact the best photographers in the world. You need to have a good understanding of the subject, the venue, and the situation.
In short, weddings have to be done with an exacting standard. You can make mistakes, but if you do its best to have someone you trust take on the job. This is very hard, but it can also be rewarding. You get to travel with your chosen couple and work with them to make sure that they get what they want. It takes a lot of practice, but you get to spend lots of fun time with your favorite couple.
The process of figuring things out is the worst part of the job. For some people, just making a mistake is a huge mistake. For others, it can be really annoying. If they’re married, you can be on the phone with them in the middle of a major part of the ceremony, or you can end up in your car listening to them talking about their plans for the next twenty-four hours. Both are equally frustrating.
This is why it’s so wonderful how weddings are completely free. They never charge for anything. So, at least you can watch a lot of the ceremony in comfort. And you can be on the phone with a couple you’ve never met. If it’s a big wedding, you may even have to wait 20 minutes for it to end.
While it is still possible for a couple to get married in the middle of a ceremony, its not as fun. You can’t wait to get back into your car and drive back to your home. I have a feeling I know what happened to our two wedding pictures.
At least the couples are happy and not worried about wedding pictures. In the past, we’ve been amazed by how well most weddings have run with very little effort. But, in our last wedding, the day before the wedding, we were all dressed up and ready to go when the ceremony ended, and we all had to wait for the groom and the bride to leave their respective cars. Not fun.
People who have been to many weddings were surprised at how much work went into the day. We were surprised how little we had to do. And I mean, only a couple of couples were there to get their photos taken. So that’s how we ended up with two pictures, one of the groom and one of the bride.
The wedding stuff is a huge deal for a lot of people. We were at least 5 feet tall, and about a foot shorter than the bride. So we get to look like we were about 10 feet tall. Some of the best photos are those of us in our wedding clothes. We aren’t wearing the same clothes in the photos, because we all had different outfits on. But its a good thing we have those pictures, because we can look at them for a long time.
