Being a wedding photographer is more than just being a photographer taking pictures for the day. To be a wedding photographer you have to be friendly and make connections with people enough for them to feel comfortable letting you photograph the moments that they share. You are basically part of the family for the night. If the family doesn’t feel like you are part of the family, it might feel awkward to them when you try to capture the moments where the family is being the family, like the table filled with a mixture of the bride and grooms family having a laugh or someone burning the dance floor with their hot moves. The last thing you want as a photographer is people feeling awkward with you there, then the pictures are going to turn out awkward, fake smiles are the worst. Altogether, being a wedding photographer is a great job that many love because at the end of the day you end up with a bunch of new family members and great memories captured.
