Taking pictures in a wedding ceremony doesn’t mean only to take shots of the people involved. Details can be really sweet and look pretty nice in a wedding album. So, take pictures of the menus, the tables, the flower arrangements, the backs of the dresses, the rings, the bouquets, the shoes and so on…. This will create a nice visual effect when it comes to the wedding album.

Also, for the big day one camera isn’t necessary. You can have another one set up with a different lens and this will definitely be useful, because you’re going to have diversity when it comes to great looking pictures.
