Again, the unique and varied experiences of wedding photojournalists are often an asset in taking advantage of a sudden, and brief, opportunity to turn chaos into substance. Our members are experienced photographers who have seen just about everything, and they have concurred that, surprisingly enough, weddings are some of the more tame and predictable events to cover; their skills, oftentimes in multiple facets of photography, allow them to capture these quick, chaotic moments as soon as they happen.
IT ALL COMES TOGETHER
Sometimes, the chaos of the wedding day comes together in ways that no one can fully anticipate, which is, after all, part of the excitement. A brief panic just seconds before the ceremony as several guests surround the bride and all scramble to help her with her necklace can make for an active and memorable photo. In moments like these, our members have said, a bit skill, as well as luck, are necessary. With a moment occurring so fast, they cannot necessarily wait for the perfect arrangement of hands around the necklace, for instance. However, the ability to anticipate that something might happen and get into the best position to capture it will go a long way towards capturing these brief, chaotic moments.
