Photographing Weddings Page 2
As a parting shot, you may want to photograph the happy couple as they leave
for their honeymoon.
You'll want to use lenses ranging from wide angle to telephoto if you're shooting with a camera that accepts interchangeable lenses. If your camera has a built-in zoom lens, you'll probably utilize the entire zoom range while shooting a wedding. Most wedding photography is done in color, but many couples like some black and white or sepia-toned photos for their wedding album, as well.
Weddings are wonderful occasions to photograph. Like many events, however, you won't get a second chance to capture the moment. For this reason, bring lots of film or high-capacity memory cards, take lots of pictures and focus on emotions and all the important traditions. You're sure to come away with some images that truly mark this special occasion.
