Wedding photojournalists capture fleeting moments at weddings that cannot be repeated in the exact same way again. The photographers need to skilled at spotting unique imagery, anticipating when the best moments will occur and take advantage of photographing the opportunity.
These skills are moulded by years of visual training and practice. Talented photojournalists will spot moments that make for great pictures, with the finger ready to click the shutter. Such moments can be missed by the casual eye photographer.
Wedding photographers must be alert the entire time, with their minds wholly focused into observing the ceremony. After spotting and anticipating where a photo opportunity will happen, it’s then a matter of framing and quickly taking the photograph. Unnoticed and often unseen.
The photographer should know how to use their equipment like the back of their hand, and there can never be a question about their camera’s readiness for capturing the action.
Most professionals will keep their camera’s exposure to the available light so that there is no fumbling with the lens when a quick shot needs to be photographed.
It is important to take stock of the wedding’s overall tone so that you can keep an eye open for special moments that are unique for the bride and groom wedding day.
Photographers must be quick to shoot as spontaneous moments wait for no one, and they never get a second chance.
The best photographers are excellent at anticipating the moment. An instant in time that can never happen again exactly the same way is captured by a camera lens with the click of the shutter.
So, who said candid wedding photography was easy.
