Talk to the bridesmaids.
The bridesmaids are oftentimes neglected amidst the hustle and bustle of the wedding prep work but as a wedding photographer, you need to make sure that you get to pay attention to all of the different elements and people involved in the wedding photography side of things when it all comes down to it. Take the time to really step aside and to really give the bridesmaids a bit of a pep talk just right before they make their walk down the aisle. Although the common tips that you give out to them are pretty cliché and something that they must have heard before, it surely will not hurt if you make sure that they get reminded about the things that are being expected from them for one last time.
Tell them to smile a lot when they make their walk. No one likes a sour faced bridesmaid. The bouquets should be held at the same level as with where the belly button usually is. When the bouquets are held out this way, you get to make sure that the dress will be showcased the right way, same with the rest of their main profile features from the face to the arms and down to the legs and feet.
Talk to the best man and maid of honor.
The best man and the maid of honor are automatically the closest people to the bride and groom. It can be quite understandable and strategic if you reach out to them as your secondary contact persons somewhere along the way. It can be very tough to reach out to the couple the moment that the wedding is in full swing. They will be the center of attention all of the time and it can be very difficult to go ahead and pull them aside to talk to them in private. You will need to establish liaisons who can go ahead and scurry information back and forth between you and the couple that you would like to go ahead and communicate with. Get the couple to introduce you to these people ahead of time. It is always better to work with familiar faces during the wedding day other than just working with complete strangers. This is something that can really help you out a lot when you are trying to get the job done or provide coverage for your clients as a professional Edinburgh wedding photographer.
Talk to the wedding planner.
The wedding planner will turn out to be your best resource person all throughout the wedding prep plan. The wedding planner is usually someone who is on top of things and who has all of the info that you could possibly need as a professional wedding photographer one way or the other. There will also be certain times wherein there are minor decision making moments that need to be taken care of for you as a wedding photographer. The wedding planner will be able to take care of that and so much more when it all comes down to it.
