Just to be clear, when I first started my photographic experience with an SLR and later with a DSLR I would have never thought of reaching the point of shooting a wedding.
Shooting a wedding is not an easy thing to do. You have to be prepared days in advance, know the places, know the timings, know the bride and groom (B&G). And it doesn’t finish there, after you have shot for a full day around 1200 pictures, you have to sort out which ones are going to be a keeper and have a deep dive in post processing for about a week.

The wedding is a moment in time, you can’t repeat it, you shoot that moment or you have lost it forever.

Andrea and Sandro are my first experience in this magic world. I asked Sandro to shoot a pre-wedding session to create a feeling between myself and them and understand how they react in front of the camera.

From this first experience I can give some suggestions:
1. If you have never done it, don’t do it. If you don’t know what you are doing you may screw it up.
2. Have a backup, this includes a camera, lenses, flashes, batteries, memories and even a person that can help you in the setup of the various shots.
3. Have a script, know exactly what will happen and when.
4. Get in touch with somebody that knows everybody, this will be handy in the moment you will have to shoot formals.
5. Be there, you can’t leave for lunch and miss important moments.
6. Never shoot at a friend or a family member’s wedding, it may jeopardize your relationship with them.

From what I have heard from the B&G, I haven’t done a bad job for the first time and they are quite happy about the results.

So long,
F.
