A Helpful Wedding Timeline to Ensure You Get the Best Shots

Being a wedding photographer takes a lot of skills, one of them being the ability to effectively manage time while corralling a large group of people. This excellent video tutorial will show you how to properly plan and schedule your timeline to ensure you get all the shots you need.ย 

Coming to you from Chelsea Nicole Photography, this fantastic video tutorial discusses proper scheduling and time management for wedding photography. Time pressure is perhaps one of the most challenging aspects of wedding work, especially since you are not in control of the events and there are so many must-have shots, thus the importance of being organized and prepared. This is, of course, part of the reason why it is so crucial to meet with the couple beforehand, understand the venue, interface with the vendors, etc. It is also why it is so crucial to have backups of all your gear ready to go at a moment's notice, as if something goes wrong, you will often not have the time to sit there and troubleshoot, and you will need to have equipment that you can quickly pick up and continue working with.ย Check out the video above for the full rundown.ย

I think an articel about photographers expecting the bride and groom to buy them a meal, would be interesting.
