Tips to Make Your Day Flow Smoothly
If somebody asked me what the biggest factor was that made a wedding shoot go off without a hitch, my answer would be “having enough TIME to think”. Most jobs are less stressful than a wedding photographer’s. The standard of quality expected of us is high, and we don’t get second chances at opportunities we’ve missed.
FORMAL GROUP PORTRAITS
So often I have seen brides on their wedding day looking totally smashed even before the wedding has started. Its a very emotional day, but just relax and take things as they come. I can guarantee that not everything will run exactly on schedule.
I've seen a wedding venue nearly burn down, flower girls refuse to co-operate, wedding dresses not want to fit and rain wash away any opportunity to shoot outside. Dont think that these things are bad, these are things that make your wedding day unique. Have fun, you only get married once.... ;)
