Preparation is very crucial for any event. You never five any excuse to your client because they hire you to capture the moments. So before going to a wedding event, you should prepare fully. Check your bag. Recheck your Camera,Lens bag,memory card,tripod,light,etc.
2. Teamwork is power
“Talent wins games, but teamwork and intelligence win championships.” – Michael Jordan
Teamwork is power. Set your team in terms of your focus. In a wedding, photography teamwork help you to develop a good and quality output.
3. Use Many cameras
I always try to use two cameras one is for wide angle and another is of portrait shots. It helps you a lot. I prefer 17-40mm for wide angle and 85mm lens for portrait. You can set your set up with your budget. Never shy to use 18-55mm lens for wide angle photos. Sometimes I used it.
4. Don’t Discard Your ‘Mistakes’
As all photographers know every click will never be a good click. So if you take any bad quality picture don’t need to delete those immediately. Keep in mind that images can be cropped or manipulated later to give you some more arty/abstract looking shots that can add real interest to the end album.
5. Know your Clint
Clint is everything. Know your client demand.What actually they want. So them what you click. Disclose price, place and time before an event. work for them not for you.
6. Capture Moments not Pictures
Try to make different with others team. Try to take some emotional or funny moment at the event. People like candid photos a lot. So be a moment maker.
7. Know your gear
It is important to know your gear. A full fame gear is your advantage, on the other hand, a crop body is your limitation. Gear not only mean camera body but also your full setup of photography. So before the start, a wedding photography team know what types of gear you need.
8. Think Different frame
The same picture in the different frame makes interesting. Always search in different angle and frame. Sometimes a bad quality photo makes attractive only for good framing. so Get a little creative with your shots.
9. Shot in RAW
Try to take pictures in RAW mode. Many people don’t like this because its need time to manipulate all the photos. But you will get some interesting thing if you take photos in RAW.

visit your event place before time. Many people think it is nothing but a waste of time. But it really helps you to know the place properly. And choose some specific place where you take a couple of photos.
