Wedding photographers in Miami are taking a hard look at how to do weddings without getting in the way of people’s busy schedules.
“I do get busy,” says Melissa Caulfield, who works at a wedding photographer in the city.
“My clients get busy too.
People want to come out of the park and eat lunch with me, and I’m like, ‘What’s up?
“It just seems so much easier when you’re not constantly looking over your shoulder. “
“It’s not really something I’m used to, but I’ve gotten used to it, she adds.
“It just seems so much easier when you’re not constantly looking over your shoulder.
I think a lot of people who are into weddings are not accustomed to having a lot to do while they’re in a rush.”
Wedding photographers say they get busy by being “a little more proactive” when they’re shooting weddings.
In fact, it can be a good thing, because “you’re able to take a few more photos that are better, which helps the photographer.”
One of the most popular wedding photography tips is to make sure the wedding photographer can take the picture you want, because you’ll want to show your guests.
“Just keep it simple and simple,” Caulfields says.
“Try to stay away from the big crowds, and just focus on the little moments.”
Caulfords advice for weddings?
Keep the camera at arm’s length, don’t move the lens or shake the camera.
“Make sure your camera is on a tripod, and if you want to take pictures that are not necessarily for social media, you should be able to do that,” she says.

“You don’t want to be a social media queen when you get married,” she adds, because that’s what couples are looking for when they go out.
And she recommends keeping the photos to one a day, because they can’t be shared on Facebook or Instagram.
“There’s always going to be people that want to see the photo they saw and want to share it, but you just have to be able keep the focus and do what you do best,” Caunfield says.
And keep the photographer happy.
“We love to have a professional wedding photographer on the premises, and we have great conversations,” she explains.
“But if you have a little extra time, go to the beach and do a little photoshoot or a family photo shoot, or if you just really love your job and love being the photographer, go do that.”
And, of course, don andreas wedding photographer.
“If you do it right, you’ll get better results than if you were to just take photos,” she emphasizes.
