The Wedding Day

  • Dress professionally! Business casual is the minimum.

  • Arrive at least 30 minutes before the coverage time begins. 

  • Equipment check 

    • Primary shooters are required to have a backup body.

    • Check sensor & lenses for dust/scratches.  Clean regularly.

    • Have plenty of batteries and empty SD cards (periodically switch out cards to safeguard against possible corruption)

  • Have fun!  Be a positive and calming force for them on what can be a stressful day. 

  • Take charge when needed (family photos, portraits of bride/groom)

  • Blend in when needed (ceremony, reception) 

  • Remember that especially with COVID, do NOT touch anyone without permission.

  • Ask how close they would like you during the ceremony.  Some couples prefer you keep your distance, and others want close-ups.

  • Remember to be conscious of the guest's view, and try your best to not block it.  A good zoom lens is really helpful for ceremonies!

  • Smile, and ask for a smile!  Help things move along without being pushy. 

  • Work cohesively with the other team members.
