You want to make sure that you have enough light to capture the details. Remember that we don’t have colors to distinguish and make details. We have to let the light do the trick. A beautiful blue sky will look gray in a black and white photo.
All megapixels are not created equally. In fact, for the most part, they don’t mean anything. Almost any new camera you can buy today has enough megapixels to print pictures up to 11×14 inches. There are a few other things to consider. The short list includes speed, lens, and batteries.
The biggest mistake a bride can make is trying to please everyone involved in their day. The thing that every bride needs to remember is this is their day and it only happens once. Spending time trying to make everyone happy is not only impossible, but will take away from the fun and excitement of the planning process itself.

You fill in the shadows by using anything large, and preferably white, that the hard light is hitting. This will be a source of soft light and, if you keep it on the opposite side of your subject to the hard light, it will fill in the shadows, allowing you to photograph the details. It is always a good idea to take a reflector with you (anything large and white) when shooting on a sunny day.
