Coming back to the topic, let us have a look at the tips for stunning event photography.
- Pick the time of the photoshoot in advance. In outdoor photography, light plays a very important role. During the day, the sun is at its peak, so harsh lighting is expected which is not very preferable. However, during the evening team, you will witness soft lighting which will result in amazing photographs. Talking about the season, if your event is in the summer season, then avoid having the event during day time but if the season is winter, then you can go for the day event.
- Be prepared with the list of poses for the event. You can browse through pinterest to get the ideas. If you know what you want, then it saves a lot of time because then you won’t have to think on the spot. Also, you can discuss it with your photographer for the day. They are much more aware of these things because it is a part of their work.
- Finalize the venue way before your event. Even take your photographer with you to the venue so they get an idea as to where the event will be taking place, how to get the photo shoot done, etc. Ask for your photographer recommendation also as they are professional so they can give proper advice to you in this matter.
- Choose the outfits as per the background of your outdoor setting. First, select the theme of your event, then pick out the outfits for that theme, and lastly, select the backdrop based on your outfit and theme. Most of the people often overlook this aspect. They do not understand that your outfit must align with the background of your event.
- Prepare a bag with all the essential items which will come in handy while you are shooting outdoors. These things can be a small makeup kit for touchups, perfume, comb, tissues, safety pins, a pair of clothes, bandaids, a pair of comfy footwear, some snacks, rubber bands, water bottle, sunscreen (an essential for the outdoor photoshoot), small mirror, etc.
