Indian marriages have a charm of their own. A wedding ceremony is one of the most jubilant celebrations you can be a part of. Filled with various emotions, wedding photography is a genre that is the ultimate test… of craft, of aesthetics and of you as a person. Being a wedding photographer lets you experience a wedding as if you were a member of the family. This is the most important event in the lives of not just two people, but also of their respective families. So, this art of wedding photography is not just about self-fulfillment, but is a serious responsibility. Here are six categories to look into:

  1. Taking Care of the Basic Gear and Settings
  2. Getting the Lighting Right
  3. Using Flash Creatively
  4. Bringing Out the Love between the Bride and Groom
  5. Photographing Group Portraits
  6. Exploring Spontaneity
  7. Don’t Forget All the Behind the Scene Action
