How to Photograph an Outdoor Wedding Ceremony - Tip #1 - Movement - One of the best parts of an outdoor wedding is that youre able to move around more. However, before the ceremony, I like to clear this with the bride - make sure its o.k if I photograph from the side or behind the alter. Most of the time, shes completely fine with this but by bringing it to her attention before the wedding, shes less likely to notice it during. No matter where I move around to, it is a priority to be as unobtrusive as possible. This is a courtesy not only to the bride and groom but to the guests as well. Be professional at all times.
4. Get rid of the book altogether! Todays brides are opting for unique twists to the traditional guest book. Consider replacing your guest book with an engravable platter or a picture frame mat. Personalized platters are a great guest book option. Not only are they beautiful, but you will be left with a gorgeous wedding memento that can actually be displayed for years to come not packed away in a box! They are typically either ceramic (guests sign with marker) or silver (come with engraving tool).
How to Photograph an Outdoor Wedding Ceremony - Tip #3 - Variety - Make sure to get a variety of photos from the ceremony. For the bride and groom, the ceremony will go by in a blink. Its up to you to catch the things that they are missing or not able to see. Typically, I like to start wide and then work my way in. One of the reasons for this is that not much happens at the beginning of the ceremony. The priest or minister talks to the couple about what marriage is, etc. So its a safe time to be able to step back for an overview or work your way around the alter as discussed above. Then, when they begin the vows, rings, unity candle, etc., youre back in the center aisle with your long lens ready to go. When considering how to photograph an outdoor wedding ceremony, keep in mind these simple tips listed above. Photographing an outdoor wedding can be easier than an indoor wedding but you still need be prepared and ready to capture those important moments.
