  • Darker clothing is preferred, as you should blend in with the background at night (lighter clothing stands out like a soar thumb in photos). DO NOT WEAR WHITE.
  • Men should have dress pants and a dress shirt. Suite jackets are not always required, but it's better to have it and not need it, than to need it and not have it.
  • Ladies should have formal shirt & pants or a full length dress.
  • If you show up in casual attire, such as jeans, you will be sent home.



EXPECTATIONS for ASSISTANT PHOTOGRAPHERS


GETTING READY

Your first major responsibility is photos of the guys getting ready. They're typically hanging out in the venue or at a hotel nearby. When you arrive, start by introducing yourself and ask the groom for any details he'd like photographed such as gifts, jewelry, watches, cuff links, etc.


Once you've finished the details, grab some candids of them hanging out and then let them know when it's time for them to get dressed. Get some photos of the groom, after he gets his pants and shirt on, while he's putting on the cuff links and the jacket (typically in window light). Grab a few portraits of the groom and some details of the outfit once he's fully dressed.


Find a spot with clean light and ask the groom if he has any friends/family photos that he, or his parents, would like.



FIRST LOOK

If there is one, I'll typically want you to shoot the grooms reaction up close, while I photograph a profile view.



THE CEREMONY

The couple has my undivided attention for the majority of the ceremony.

You should be focused on the parents/grandparents reactions, the wedding party, and the guests. You should be delivering mostly candid moments from this section of the day.



COCKTAIL HOUR

At this time, I'm typically doing family & wedding party photos and then couples portraits.

  • Detail photos that showcase the food displays before everyone starts picking through them.
  • Detail photos of the signage, the welcome table, etc.
  • Group Photos of the guests (you will have to ask the groups of people you see if you can take their photo).



THE RECEPTION

During the introductions, I would like to have you photograph a wide angle perspective of the wedding party and couple entering the room. This happens fast and it's good to have a back up for this. I typically shoot this on a 35mm or 50mm. I would prefer that you shoot 35mm or wider.


During the formal dances and speeches, I would like for you to focus on the parent and family reactions as well as the wedding party (specifically the maid of honor and best man).


Once the dancing floor opens, we keep one photographer on the floor and one photographer roaming the outskirts and other areas.
