Creating Consistency

I can’t stress consistency in wedding photography enough when it comes to creating and sticking to a brand image, as well as “getting it right in camera”. However, there’s another element to consistency when it comes to weddings that’ll help pull together your photographic efforts throughout the day.

The Manor Wedding Pictures

Ideally, your clients will want your photos in a wedding album with multiple pictures on a spread. If you take a picture of the wedding shoes in the grass, and then the invitation against a purple bridesmaid’s dress, and then photograph the engagement ring on a black table, those images most likely aren’t going to flow nicely together in the album. The same goes for if you photograph the bridesmaids on one background and the groomsmen on another and try to match them together on one page.

The Rockleigh Wedding Photos

Try to create consistency in series of images so that they match when you put them side-by-side either in a wedding album or even in a cluster of photos you post online on your blog, Facebook or Instagram account (see below). To take this one step further, consider staging the consistent theme around the wedding theme. For example, if it’s a rustic theme, maybe photograph the smaller details on a wooden floor rather than on a glass table to set the mood for the wedding.
