How to shoot a wedding if you aren't a wedding photographer

If you’re a photographer and happen to take good images every time you fire your shutter, sooner or later someone might approach you to capture their wedding. While this is a job often best left to professionals who shoot weddings for a living, you can up your chances of success with a bit of preparation and planning. Shooting a wedding alone can be a difficult task, but if you are a one man team or are just casually taking pictures of your friend's wedding, some basic level of preparation along with the right approach will help you in the execution of your shoot. 

A wedding is a special day for many people. It's not just two people beginning a new life together but also rotates around that person who is making all the efforts to preserve the memories of the special day. If you are not a person who is familiar with shooting weddings, it can be rather intimidating for the photographer to deliver the quality he/she is known to produce. All the results of your preparation will take you a long way in making the day memorable for you as well. This time we shall discuss about how to shoot a wedding when you are not a wedding shooter.
