White wedding dresses can be an issue.
This is something that you will need to face head on as a Kent wedding photographer. The camera sees the dress as something that is potentially a little too bright and as with all things that turn up looking way too bright at times, the camera will attempt to automatically adjust the level of brightness in that particular spot or area where the wedding dress is. The results will come out with the wedding dress a little too gray or a little too dull and that is not something that the bride will end up being happy about. You need to make sure that you get to do something about it. A gray looking wedding dress submitted to the clients as a final photo will be disappointing and unprofessional beyond compare. You can do something about this issue. Figure out how to adjust the exposure compensation on your camera and that should take care of how things will turn out. The wedding day tends to come in with a lot of white clothes. This is also oftentimes an issue with the portrait shots when the skin tone might be a little bright. Dull looking pictures are awful to take a look at and you should avoid them at all times.
Get to know the inner wedding circle.
You need to get to know the inner wedding circle such as the bridesmaids, best man, and maid of honor because you might need to tap into them. It really tends to help out a lot if you are more or less chummy with the people who are close to the bride and groom. This way, you have people that you can reach out to and more or less tap into when the going gets tough. You may not be able to reach out to the couple being wed as often as you would like do once the wedding is in full swing. The wedding is all about them, after all. When you know most of the bridesmaids, the groomsmen, and the couple’s closest relatives and best friends, it will make your job far easier to accomplish because you can always reach out to them to help relay the info for you whenever you need to ask the couple about anything all throughout the wedding photo shoot. Get the couple to introduce you to these people in advance so that you can get rid of the awkwardness and the discomfort of being around complete strangers once the wedding day comes in.
Gauge the temperature of the crowd.
As a wedding photographer in Kent, you should know how to gauge the temperature of the crowd that you are dealing with. Try to see how the crowd is receiving you. Are they excited to get their pictures taken or are they trying to just follow through on an ordeal? Once you start seeing them getting a little bored or annoyed with your presence, make it a point to keep your distance and switch to a longer lens while you are at it.
