Camera with dual card slots
When you shoot a wedding as the official wedding photographer, you should make it a point to really go ahead and use a camera that more or less comes with dual card slots. That way, you will be able to go ahead and double up on the photos that you are able to take without really going through so much trouble with it because the camera will pretty much get it done for you right then and there. When you think about it, all of the photos that you click through will be recorded in both cards so it is something that can definitely work out well for you at the end of the day. This is something that can turn out to be really great insurance however; the downside to all of this is the fact that when it all comes down to it, you will be using a whole lot of memory cards in the process. This means that you need to make sure that you are able to bring along more memory cards than you will end up using in the process. Make sure that you pack in enough and you should have no reason to worry at all about anything. Make it a point to really wipe the memory cards clean all of the time so that you could avoid any formatting issues that memory cards usually have when they are not kept up to the best possible state all of the time.
Include immediate family
You should also make it a point to really include the immediate family of the bride and the groom in the photos that you are taking. You have to understand that as a wedding photographer, you will need to be able to more or less wrap your head around the fact that this is something that can turn out to be really quite important and treasured by the couple who are being wed. Take note of this fact and you should come up with pretty great looking pictures if you include the family members in the process. Get to know which people are included or are a part of the immediate family circle of the bride and groom and make sure that you know them enough to decide which people go with which group photos because that is something that will make things so much easier for you and for the wedding photo shoot that you are trying to bring together one way or the other.
When you get to the wedding that you are about to cover, just be confident and be quite rest assured in the fact that you are a perfectly capable wedding photographer. You don’t really have to try all too hard for people to like you because there is a pretty good chance that people like you just fine the way you are. You have to take note of the fact that people hire you for your skills as a wedding photographer and not because of your skills of being able to entertain people.
