Communicate with the couple a day before and create a short list of shoot they want to click on the occasion. Get a family member one for each side who can direct you to shoot. Before that big day gets a visit of the location with couple so you get familiar with the place. You need to be well prepared for the day. Get a back up plan (in case of bad weather), have all the accessories. Show them your previous work. How many shots they want, the price charged etc. Put your camera on silent mode so that they don’t make interrupt in gorgeous moment like to kiss. Shoot the things like ring, table settings, menu etc. This will help you to add extra dimension. Use two cameras with different lenses. It will help you to take a good click in different situation. Having a second photographer is a great idea. One will capture the formal shoot and another to get candid shoot. Sometime you have to be bold to capture a moment. During the formal shoot be bold, you know what you need and ask the couple to do that. Ability to use a diffused light or flash is a key. Sometime there is a situation you don’t allow to use flash. If you not able to use flash you have to use a fast lens or bump with ISO. Click as much as you click. This will provide you the flexibility to manipulate shoots. Display your shoot on Reception. Upload shoot you take-in and rotate them as a slide show. This will add a fun element to the night. Manage background is the main challenge in the wedding party because there are often people going everywhere. Make a special place only for the photography so that no one can interfere in that area. With digital cameras you have the power to check the images you shoot and delete those that don’t work. Keep in mind that you can edit those images later to get arty/abstract shoot. Get creative with your shots. Make sure you mix things up a little by taking shoot from up, down, wide angles etc. One thing you have to do to shoot the every face who attend the wedding. For this you have to climb up on the roof or use a ladder so that you can get more face in one click. When shooting outside you probably want to keep your Flash attached. There are some condition you have to use it. On wedding put your camera in the continues shooting mode and use it. Through this you can get some interesting shoot. Sometime you will get some unexpected thing like raining at the end of the ceremony, groom forgets to do up his fly etc. This will give you some awesome shots.
