Roll out a white sheet for the bride whenever you are shooting outdoors as the wedding photographer.
This will help protect the dress. Outdoor shoots can be quite challenging for a wedding photographer but they can be more so for the bride and this is what you need to watch out for whenever you have something that you need to shoot in an outdoor setting. The wedding dress is one of the most iconic things that a bride can hold on to even way after the wedding has come to past. This is something that the bride will be holding on to quite dearly. If you ask her to pose somewhere outdoors and she comes across the high risk of ruining or soiling the dress somewhere in the process, she might not turn out to be as cooperative or as willing as you would like her to be and that can seriously be a problem unless you prepare for it ahead of time. Prepare a roll of white sheet, preferably made of something waterproof such as plastic or tarpaulin so that you can just wipe it down or wash it and dry it off once you are done using it. You can reuse it over and over again so it will not cost you too much money. More than that, it is something that will real
Give the train enough coverage.
The bride opted to include a train in her dress and she made that intentionally. Regardless of what her purpose might turn out to be for the train, whether it was for added impact and effect or whether or was to make her turn out looking demure during the shoot, the point is, she added it there for a special reason and that is something that you should not take for granted as a professional Essex wedding photographer. As much as possible, give a special section for the train of the dress. The train can really make for a dramatic entrance just during that time wherein the bride is about to enter the church doors as well as when she is making her walk down the aisle with the train of her dress trailing behind her, the loose flower petals splayed on the floor moving along with it as the bride continues to walk forward. This is something that the bride might turn out to be very disappointed about if you miss out on providing the train of the dress the kind of coverage that it deserves.
Learn the technique behind positive exposure compensation.
It is something every Essex wedding photographer should know. The wedding dress tends to have a lot of white in it. This is something that the camera might see as potentially problematic for the rest of the photos but luckily enough, you will be able to go ahead and fix this through a little technical background on exposure compensation. Make sure that you get to dial that in when the right time comes for you to use it.
