Melbourne Wedding Photography Tip #1: Have a frank talk about seeing the bride
Some couples are very serious about the tradition of the groom not seeing the bride before the wedding day. Eyesoneme – Melbourne wedding photography like to sit couples down and explain that we really NEED at least an hour just with the couple (nobody else in the wedding party) so that we get a decent album together. Once they realize that they need to commit to this much time and see they can’t fit it in the wedding day plans, they are usually open to doing a shoot the day before the wedding all dressed up. It gives the bride a chance to try her hair and makeup out, and you’ll have unlimited time with the couple to nail the wedding photos.
Melbourne Wedding Photography Tip #2: Wear comfy shoes
You’re going to walk like you wouldn’t believe as a wedding photographer on a wedding day. Sure, the Stilettos might look good at your wedding reception, but you’ll be the grumpiest wedding photographer on the planet.
Melbourne Wedding Photography Tip #3: Take out Uncle Bob early with a sharp elbow to the stomach!
It’s funny, but Eyesoneme – Melbourne wedding photography have seen “Uncle Bop” ruin more wedding photos than you could ever believe. What we mean by this is that there will always be someone in the wedding party who likes to get in the way. They either tell people how to pose while you’re trying to get everyone in the right spot, or they step in front of you to take pictures, etc. So, the Melbourne wedding photographer must be CONFIDENT and take charge. Simply saying something like “Thanks for your help. I’m trying to do something a little different here. Is it all right with you if I go ahead and get the posing set up here?” It might seem forward, but your couple will be glad to see you moving quickly and getting the photos done correctly.
