There is no room or space for any major mistakes on your end in wedding photography.
Your clients are basically paying you a really hefty fee for your services. More than that, you are responsible for the most important day in their lives. This is not the kind of responsibility that you should be taking lightly at the end of the day. You need to make sure that you really get to prepare for things ahead of time. One thing that you will need to make sure you are able to watch out for as much as possible is the way that you save your files. You need to back things up as much as possible.
Make sure that all of your memory cards are well maintained.
Routinely wipe your memory cards clean so that they are always in the best possible shape at the end of the day. Buy a couple of high quality external hard drives and make a habit out of constantly backing your files up to these hard drives. It will make your life so much easier knowing that your files are safe and stored separately the entire time. Your image files are basically your most valuable possessions other than your actual photography gear. You have to keep in mind of the fact that you have worked hard to get your files. Once the wedding is over, all that is left from the event are the photos that have been taken from the event. Once you lose your files and you didn’t back them up in any way, shape or form, there is no way for you to bring your files back. Not backing up your files is just downright irresponsible and you need to make sure that you do not get to commit this kind of mistake.
You should also be particular with the kind of makeup that is being used or worn by the bride.
The wrong kind of makeup look really can ruin a London wedding photography shoot in so many ways than you could ever imagine. You need to make sure that you are able to take care of this as much as possible. Ask the bride if she will be willing to get a test run and have the makeup artist give out a sample makeup job so that you will be able to see if it is a kind of look that will work for your particular style of wedding photography. Take note of the makeup artists who complement your wedding photography style and try to keep the list with you all of the time so that you will be able to have something that you can recommend to your clients in case they have a need for makeup artists and in case they ask around for any referrals. You need to make sure that the right kind of makeup is always worn by the bride because this is the best way for you to make her the star of the entire show.
