Chapter 4. Preparation

Preparation

Although nothing like what the bride and groom must do, you will also have a checklist of essential preparations to make before the wedding day. The more work you put into the event before it happens, the easier the shoot will be, and the more satisfied everyone will be with the results. Preparing for the wedding day involves understanding the couple and becoming familiar with the locations of the ceremony and the reception, as well as the wedding schedule.

LOCATION

One of the most important decisions a couple makes when planning their wedding is where to hold the ceremony and the reception. As I'm sure you know, sometimes the ceremony and reception are held at the same place. Other times they are miles apart. Obviously, being familiar with the locations is important from a technical point of view. You need to know ahead of time what type of lighting you can expect, where you can find the best back drops, and what challenges you may face. Yet, you shouldn't limit your focus on the location to identifying technical concerns alone.
