If you are shooting a wedding there are all sorts of considerations that you should keep in mind. One of the most important ones is who to shoot. When you are preparing to shoot a wedding talk to your clients, try and ask who are the people the bride and groom would like to see in their photos – this includes family and friends of course but you can sometimes get more answers – write them down so you won’t forget and bring this list with you to the wedding and go over it while you work so you will not forget anyone. There might also be some people who are less relevant – try and make sure you won’t be wasting your time with those – your job is to make your clients happy and supply them with the images they want.
