Have two cameras
A wedding photographer Hertfordshire should always have two cameras in tow. A single camera will turn out to be a little irresponsible if that is all that you are bringing around with you during the wedding photo shoot. You need something so much more than that. Your clients deserve something so much more than that with the amount that they are paying out for your professional services.
You need to make sure that no matter what happens, you get to take into account the possibility of your photography equipment failing or bailing out on you somewhere in the middle of the photo shoot and that is something that you need to really do something about before it actually happens to you and you end up being empty handed all throughout the time that you are there. It doesn’t even have to be a super expensive camera either.
If you have a full framed camera for your primary camera, you can make do with a cropped framed one as your secondary camera. It gets the job done, albeit with less features but nonetheless, it should be good enough as your backup camera. If money is a bit of an issue, there are a lot of other ways for you to do something about it without spending too much money. You can borrow one from a friend in the meantime.
Have a second shooter.
A wedding photographer Hertfordshire should also always have a second shooter in tow during the shooting of the wedding. If you don’t have a second shooter, you are going to end up spreading yourself a little too thin for comfort and you just can’t afford to do that. Weddings take up hours and hours on end. It can turn out to be extremely exhausting and just a little too much for you if you go in and do things all alone. You need an extra pair of hands to help you out. This is particularly true for huge weddings. You might need to be in two places all at the same time when the party is in full swing and that’s just something that you will need to really cover for when it all comes down to it. Make it a point to hire a second shooter no matter what happens. Most of the photographers out there actually come in teams but if that is something too much for you to provide in the meantime, a second shooter should be well worth the time.
Strike a balance
You need to strike up the perfect balance of being unobtrusive but bold enough for people to acknowledge your authority as a wedding photographer Hertfordshire. You should minimize talk and you should not speak up unless it is absolutely required but when you do, make it a point to get people to actually listen up to what you have to say. This is something that you will eventually need to master so try to aim for it whenever you are at weddings. You need to hit the perfect balance in order for you to become effective at this.
