When you plan for two hours of shooting and only actually get seven minutes, things can suddenly become very stressful.

See how the two photographers were able to get all the shots in less time than it takes to unpack all your gear.

Bride Getting Ready

Typically, there’s a lot of things going on in the bride’s staging area and it’s usually all happening very fast. When taking photos of the women in the bridal party getting ready, having a second shooter in the room can be a lifesaver. Here, the photographers explain why, and which positions they take when shooting the wedding preparations.

The Guys/Groom Getting Ready

Very rarely do things go as planned. As Mary states in the intro of this clip, “Show me a situation where the photographer planned to go au natural light, and I’ll show you a situation where it goes wrong.” For some reason, the men in the wedding party are usually stuck in dark conference rooms where lighting leaves a little to be desired. This video is perfect to show you how to handle these types of situations and get great photos of the groom.
