So, as some of you know I have just gone pro and registered and started my own company to make some money to fund my passion for photography. I have done a wedding before as assistant shooter and i just landed my first wedding booking as main photographer. The wedding is planned for the 5th of October and will take place in a beautiful church in the old town part of Stockholm city, after the church the guests are invited on a boat cruise which will take them to the reception which is located on an island in the Stockholm archipelagio. The venue is at an aquarium so the surroundings will be water tanks with sharks and what not swimming around, pretty cool venue if you ask me.
As this is my first wedding i have asked a friend of mine, who has almost hundred weddings under his belt, to assist me. This makes me feel less nervous as I know I have a backup just in case I freeze ;-)
I have not yet had the planning meeting with the couple but that will be the first thing to do to get an idea of what they are looking for and to plan the day together with them. I also plan to visit the church, the cruise boat and the aquarium before hand to get a feel of the locations and what angles to use and what equipment I need, settings etc.
I would love to get a discussion going here about wedding photography, dos and don'ts and helpful pointers to make my first wedding a success.
