Often, unruly guests are not willing to post for photos. So, it’s better to take photos on the go. Another challenge is to take photos of those who are a bit high. In this situation, you need to be quick and capture the best shots.
- Videotape the ceremony
Another way out is to record the video and capture photos from the video later on. You can crop out great photos in order to do your job.
- Work With “Good” Guests
During the wedding, you will have some stable and cooperative guests. They will be set to pose for you, but you still need to guide them to make poses. However, you can still shoot on the go.
- Work with a Supervisor
If possible, you should ask for the help of a good coordinator or supervisor in the contract. That person will give you a list of important friends, family members, and guests. They will also help you deal with rude guests.
- Keep your cool
While taking photos, you may come across unruly guests who may not be ready to behave well with you. But you shouldn’t lose your cool and act professionally. You don’t want to create a scene by arguing with the misbehaving guests. You need to keep your cool throughout the ceremony.
So, if you follow these 5 tips while taking photos during a wedding ceremony you have been hired for, it will be easier for you to deal with unruly guests. As a professional photographer, you have to remember these tips as you will often have to deal with misbehaving guests.
