One of the struggles we hear most from wedding planners is how difficult it is to find and book the kind of clients you want. No one is alone in this—it’s not always easy, but there are a few practices that make it possible (and even enjoyable) to accomplish!

Are you creatively satisfied? . Absolutely and never. Fully and not at all. This is a total paradox. You need both parts. You can never be fully satisfied, and that’s what keeps you hungry, but you also need to know what good looks like, and you need to recognize when you’ve arrived in that place. -Elle Luna .

When it comes to exposure, you always want to err on the side of overexposure, even with digital - but with film even more so. An underexposed negative is something you can’t come back from. We asked @richardphotolab to explain more. . “There’s a point where we can’t do anything to help an underexposed negative. If you’re one stop, two stops, or three stops underexposed, it’s all over. With overexposure, on the other hand, it’s really hard to get to that terminal point. You also want to narrow down the kind of light you like to shoot in. I always recommend investing in a hand-held light meter. That’s one of the best things you could do for your craft and business. I know some photographers use their in-camera meter. Hand held meters can be expensive—between $400 and $500—but it’s so worth it because of the control you get. You can put it anywhere and figure out your lighting situation in the scene you're photographing. You also get a better negative.” Learn more from Richard Photo Lab in our online course, Wedding Photography with @tecpetaja. #ifimade
Not all bouquets are made to stand alone. Ask your florist to help if you want to get a shot of just the bouquet. Try not to lay the bouquet down as it can look flat. Prop it up against a beautiful textured wall or surface. Fold the ribbon in soft loops to create movement of the fabric. . You can also try shooting the bouquet with the bride by having her embrace the florals and cut into your frame by focusing on the florals. This draws our attention to the arrangement. If there is a natural breeze outside, ribbon flowing in the wind makes for beautiful and feminine imagery. An excerpt from Process Driven Design by @ginnyau.

Line in and of itself is an element of design, but the way we use that line is a matter of composition. Movement can communicate all kinds of nuanced messages, depending on multiple variables, many of which are transmitted in the lines. Straight lines, such as arrows, produce direct, rapid transit; curved lines almost always create a softer kind of movement; while hard lines, diagonals, and sharp angles create more dynamic movement. Lines often provide the paths our eyes travel through a visual piece. The qualities of those lines will determine a lot about our eyes’ (and emotions’) journeys. .
