5 Tips Your Wedding Photographer Forgot To Tell You


Hello guys! Jess Fouts is back with more tips for wedding photography. This time I am going to share 5 tips that most photographers forget to tell their clients.

When you shoot a few hundred weddings a year, you get familiar with certain patterns that help you take great shots. Over the past few years, I have learned a lot of things. I learned how to deal with hard patterns, rude or drunk guests and a lot of other complications. Let me share with you some of the tips that I learned in the process.

Hair and Makeup

Before the big day, you will get your hair and makeup done. The problem is these things may take more time than you expected.

You may be an hour or more behind the schedule. So, it’s better to have a solid plan ready for the big day.

Family Portraits

It’s hard to get everyone in the frame, especially when you are going to shoot family photos. So, what you need to do is bitten a little grumpy while your photographer is taking family shots. But believe me, it’s worth it.

Your Aunt Millie

Your photographer may not have any idea of how your aunt Mille is. In fact, it’s hard for most photographers to get to know all of your family members on your big day. So, you must let them know about the special guests that you want to be photographed with.

For this, it’s better that you put their names on your photographer’s shots list.


If photography is on top of your list of priorities, I suggest that you give a go to backdrops. While details can improve the feel of the event, big-ticket items can add much more.

Café Lights

If you love photography but have a small budget, use café lights aka market lights or globe light. They are the best investments for your wedding. They will make your pictures look absolutely stunning.

I think these 5 tips can make your wedding photography much more amazing.
