2 Tips to Shoot Beach Photos for Weddings

Beach photos provide you with a problem not encountered in many other areas; glare. The backdrop of the sea and the surf creates a luminescence not encountered in many other areas. Here are few tips to help you out.

  1. Height Matching: If you know in advance where the wedding is going to be held, scout the scene out. This way, you will be able to determine where the best backdrops will be and can arrange the bride and groom suitably without wasting time. Make sure you seat the bride if the groom is shorter. There are many ways to organize him to stand on a rocky outcrop, but make sure that you get the height balance correct. Wedding photos invariably become a bore to the bride and groom, but if you are organized in advance and can get the required posed photos with speed, it will be far better for all concerned.
  2. Filters and Exposure: Take the correct filters with you. Beach photos require special filters to reduce the glare from the sea and the light created by the vast expanses of light reflecting off the water. On a really sunny day, the glare can cause the whole photo to be almost transparent when printed. The correct filters to reduce the glare are a must for any beach photos.
