I have a dear and very cheerful friend who always assumes that the worst is going to happen. It very rarely does and so, when things turn out better than expected, she’s always much happier than she thought she possibly could be bearing in mind that things are always turning out better than anticipated!
Photographing a wedding is, in many ways fraught with the potential for things to go wrong. There are so many variable factors involved, many out of the photographer’s control, and it’s important to have strategies to reduce risk as far as possible and also to have mechanisms in place to cope when things do go wrong. It’s good to assume the worst will happen so that you can do your utmost to prevent it, you can cope if it does happen and, if it doesn’t happen you can count your blessings and come out smiling!
