Wedding photography

Took up an assignment  a couple of months ago. The bride and groom are lovely couples, both in look and personality. I am sure you will agree too.

This is the first time I went solo. Started the shoot from about 7am and did not finish until almost midnight, with a couple of hours of rest in the afternoon. I don't think I will ever want to shoot solo again. Most boring, and rather tiring too.

Anyway, just thought I will share a couple of thoughts that another photographer friend shared. In this instance, I gave them a lot more images than they asked for. This should be a no no, as inevitably some not so good shots sneaked through.

Also, there may be some situation where the scene can only be 'covered' using a fish eye lens. That is also a no no, for most people cannot appreciate photographs taken with a fish eye lens. Let it be. If your 17-55mm could not cover the angle, forget it. Or check with your client (if you really want to cover the whole event) if they care about seeing images taken with a fish eye.

Last, but not least, ensure that you edit all photos really well, and discard those that may not make you look good. And good luck!
