Plan Your Work
Whether you are shooting an event or a scene for a documentary, you usually have some idea of what’s going to happen before you start shooting. Use this to your advantage! Make a list of the things that you know will happen (guests arrive, bride and groom walk down the aisle, etc) and then of the shots you want to capture each moment (Bride’s parents arriving at ceremony, groomsmen getting ready, etc.). This will help keep you efficient while shooting – and prevent you from realizing in post-production that you don’t have a single shot of the mother of the bride!
