The Life of a Wedding Photographer

It comes up a lot. Usually when I’m standing in the buffet line for dinner, or when there’s a slow time during the day when I’m not taking pictures.

“So you’re the photographer?”

“Yessir, I am, and I absolutely love it.”

“Well I don’t doubt it. You’re doing a great job out there. It must be great to work only one day a week!”

To knock down some of the common misconceptions of what a wedding photographer does during the rest of the week, one of the guys asked 50 wedding photographers what their weekly activities included.

Here’s some graphs for illustration…

What Wedding Photographers Do In Reality

 

And let’s not forget that many wedding photographers don’t do photography full time, because it’s a hard job to support yourself with.  Most have a day job that supports themselves and families, which are generally much more stable.  So they’re doing even more work than usual.

October Snow Interrupts Wedding Photography, Breaks Trees

So before Halloween and before fall even ended…I mean the leaves are still green on some trees…we already received a generous amount of snow.  I just got back from a wedding too!  A white wedding, indeed! (The DJ played the song)  The bride assumed it would be nice weather with the nice fall colors and all.  This affected our wedding photography, but it was an indoor ceremony and reception so we just stayed inside.  No outside photography at this wedding.  It was an older couple (70+), so I don’t blame them.  The groom almost slipped before the ceremony walking down a short snowy hill.

Anyways, I documented this unusual event with some snowy photography.  I even found a snow model as I was walking around.  I really would like to do some more kid photography in the snow.

Photographer in Harrisburg PA and Photo Booth Harrisburg PA

A nice attraction at a wedding reception is a photo booth.  This isn’t your typical traditional photo booth either.  It features a real live professional wedding photographer who helps pose you, takes your photo, and then prints out a 4×6 color print a few minutes later.  The actual set up is fairly simple.  It’s essentially uses portable photography studio equipment with lights, a backdrop, a table or two for the laptop, printer, and to layout all the photo booth prints of the evening.

I’ve participated in several photo booth wedding events and they’re always popular.  Once people see me photographing, they all want a photo.  Props are essential because they add a lot more to the fun.  Kids tend to get addicted and want one pose after the next, parents want one of the entire family, and others just go crazy with the props and do something silly.

If there’s room at your wedding reception, you should definitely consider a photo booth.  It doesn’t require that much space, and it makes the evening a lot more entertaining for your guests.  Some places charge a lot of money to have an on-location photo booth, but my prices are very reasonable.
