Whether you have been frantically following latest trends from the world of wedding photography, or trying desperately to avoid them, you will still most likely be interested in finding out the tricks of the trade. In other words, you want to know how world’s best photographers get those breathtaking shots.
There is no better way to get answers than from the horse’s mouth!
Marcus Bell is no stranger to stunning locations, but still believes that it is not the location that makes the shot, it’s the happy couple.
Rocco Ancora is a master of wedding photography and many of his shots look like Renaissance paintings. As he once said in an interview for American Photo, “I like to take the light source away from the camera and create as much modeling and mood in the image as I possibly can.”
Parker J. Pfister thinks that the key to wedding photography success is not moving with the crowd. The key is being different from other photographers.
Not many photographers will be found quietly observing the wedding. And that’s exactly what Sean Cayton does.
It’s no big secret that photography is about capturing a moment. Christian Oth feels that the ability to predict best moments comes mostly from experience.
Want to know his secret? He never tells couples how to pose, because the very best pose comes naturally.
Camille and Chadwick Bensler think the same as Jonas Peterson does. The bottom line is, if the wedding guests (or the happy couple) are aware of the photographer’s presence, the shot will most probably lost all of its uniqueness.
One of the basic (yet often its significance is not acknowledged) rules of wedding photography is to get to know the couple. In other words, get to know the happy couple, find out what’s important to the bride and groom, and finally find out what’s their family like.
One thing is certain, you will have a hard time escaping breathtaking photos from leading bridal magazines. But at least now you have more clue on how to shoot them
