What You Need for a Perfect Wedding Photoshoot
Weddings themselves are exciting and amazing events. However, they do come with a lot of stress and planning.
Often times, there are those small things that will simply fall through the cracks and it only becomes apparent that they are missing once they are needed.
That’s where making a list comes in really handy and wedding photoshoots are a great example of an amazing event that can go wrong if not planned correctly.
People who have seen many photoshoots and weddings at AZ Limo share some things they know are essential for a successful wedding photoshoot.
Bring Comfortable Shoes
The ideal wedding photo is of a bride in her wedding dress and presumably high-heel shoes, and the groom in a suit and lacquered dress shoes.
However, the sad reality of this kind of footwear is that it is simply not as comfortable as you might think, especially if you are going to be wearing it for a while.
Knowing how long these photoshoots take, you should really consider coming in wearing some really comfortable shoes, and only putting on those special ones when they will be seen in the shots.
What’s more, if you are planning any kind of photos which are not on pavement, like in a park or a forest, chances are that high heels will be a nuisance before long. Think comfort first.
Food and Drinks
In the same vein, bringing enough food and drinks to your photoshoot might also be a revelation which comes too late. Staying somewhere for hours can make you and everyone around you hungry, so be sure to have enough food to go around.
Taking a break every once in a while is preferable to getting hangry and potentially souring the sweet moment.
This is where a lot of the wedding photography parties fail, especially if the photographer is a beginner or wasn’t involved in the planning process.
Anything from the veil for the wedding dress to the bouquet that the bride will be carrying is important. It can help you come up with great pictures and it is often an underestimated part of the photoshoot.
It’s not too much of a problem if you are taking photos somewhere near your home, but if you go out further, especially out of town, your photos will likely end up without those props.
One of the ubiquitous symbols of weddings is a stretch limo which brings the happy couple to and from the wedding venue. It may be something that was implanted in our minds by pop culture, but it is there now and it is considered a staple.
So, why should your wedding photoshoot be any different? Rent a limo for a few hours and recreate all of the magic moments of the wedding. Not the mention the projection of luxury and enjoyment that the limo ride can offer you.
Extra Photo Equipment
This part is not for the happy couple to think about, but rather for the photographer. However, it doesn’t hurt to know the little secrets of the trade. If you want certain kinds of photos, you might need to instruct your photographer to bring such equipment.
A simple spray bottle can create amazing effects, especially if the photographer is skilled at using the sunlight in conjunction with the water droplets.
If you want to create the rainbow effect, all you need is a small, clear glass prism. These will difuse the light into the many colors of the rainbow. Those colors can be perfectly projected on the white of the wedding dress.
