So it’s pretty much a given that there is a bride, groom, bridal party, guests etc. and that they will all need a picture taken. This is easier said than done and then there are the details….. cake, rings, custom wine bottle labels, the location itself.
When I book a wedding it’s my time to take a deep breath, shut up and listen oh and brides this is your turn to speak up. The only question I ask is “what are the details?” It always returns a blank look at first but it’s the most important question and can make or break your shoot when its time to deliver the job.
The last wedding I shot was full of little details and asking the bride really pays off. The groom had made all the yard games himself, the pizzas were hand tossed, the cake was made up of cup cakes, drinks were served in mason jars, there were eccentric guests, the list was endless but asking the above question and taking that deep breath always pays off.
So the next time you shoot a wedding just ask “what are the details?”
