Got my first wedding shoot tomorrow night/saturday morning. Can't wait, but also nervous.
Considering all of the work I've seen from you on here, I don't think you have anything to worry about!
Hope to see some of the shots!
good luck john...but you wont need it..youve got an eye for people shots...youll blow them away..
Awesome! Can't wait to see em! You'll do great!
You'll do wonderfully, Shark. Your shots that we've seen are excellent. Let us see when you've got them.
Don't be nervous about your ability...you're a great photographer.
Just don't forget anything...nerves can make you forget the most obvious things.
Two tips I will offer is to pre-focus if you want shots of them coming down the aisle. Pick your spot, focus on it, and wait for them to walk into it, then shoot. That's the one I could have used. The camera I normaly shot with at the time I thought had a very reliable autofocus.
Boy was I wrong but a little quick thinking saved me.
The other tip is simply this. DON'T FORGET TO HAVE FUN.
Good luck, and I can't wait to see them.
Good luck SHark! YOu will do great!!
Good luck.... awaiting your pictures and experience!
You'll do great.
Do take the time to check out the location before the shoot. I had a wedding where the bride wanted to get married in front of a west facing window, in an old CCC restaurant (dark wood interior - floors, walls and ceiling) at 5:00 PM.
If I hadn't checked out the location before the ceremony, I would have panicked when I got there. On the upside, I wasn't satisfied with the pictures after attempting to adjust for the bride's wants.......but she and the family were very happy with them.
I'm sure you'll take marvelous shots! Don't worry - be happy now
Don't be nervous. You'll do great Be confident knowing you'll do your best and that's pretty good... so do your thang!
