4 Tips to Improve Your Wedding Photographs

Whether you are a Sedona Hindu Wedding Photographer or a soon-to-be-wed couple looking for ways to help your wedding photographer get great photos of your wedding, you can certainly do a lot to improve every click and shot of the camera. Having covered hundreds of weddings in Arizona and all over US, we’ve come up with a few tips to share to you on how you can improve the overall look and charm of your wedding photography.

1. Know when the sun sets

The best portrait light of the entire day is the hour before sunset. You need to carefully plan on what shots you will take at that time of the day, because before you know it, the sun have faded away. That last hour is what we call the golden hour as it makes everyone look healthy, glowing and gorgeous. It lets you capture those images where the light from the setting sun floods the subject and creates a dramatic look that’s almost impossible to recreate with artificial lighting or even with natural lighting from other time of the day.

2. Get shady for formals

We mean look for shady spots for formal shots. Is there a spot at your venue that has enough shade for a large group that’s easily accessible and near the reception location? This is essential. Make sure to ask your Tucson Indian Wedding Photographer about this, so he/she can look for a spot for your formal group shots. Most venues have something like this, but if they don’t, consider if you’re going to want the hassle of not having a great place to shoot a large group in good lighting.

3. Have a good indoor portrait lighting

When looking at a venue’s indoor shooting spots, look for large windows that do not have direct sun shining through them. Make sure there’s at least one window in your getting ready area, and that the makeup artists don’t set up in front of it. Also, the larger the window, the softer the light and the shadows will be, which is what you need for shooting portraits.

4. Secure great artificial lights for reception venue

Your Payson Wedding Photographer may have their own way of shooting receptions, but one technique we find great and have given us great images is using the on-camera flash to bounce the light. Bouncing flash means pointing the camera flash at a flat, neutrally colored surface nearby the subject, so the light that bounces off the surface will illuminate the scene. It creates softer, more portrait-friendly lighting instead of a harsh, direct flash.
