Here are tips for taking great photos in a church setting.

Experience

When choosing a wedding photographer for your church wedding, it is important to consider their experience with photographing ceremonies in churches. Many photographers have experience shooting weddings at other venues such as parks or country clubs, but may not be as familiar with the specific challenges posed by photographing in a church. Make sure to ask potential photographers about their experience and if they have any specific recommendations for shooting in your church.

Style

Another thing to consider when choosing a wedding photographer is their style. Do you want traditional posed portraits, or more candid and natural photos? It’s important to find a photographer whose style matches your own vision for your wedding day.

Lighting

One of the biggest challenges of photographing in a church is the lighting. Many churches have very dimly lit sanctuaries, which can make it difficult to get good shots. Ask your photographer if they have any tips for shooting in low light conditions. They may recommend using a tripod or flash, or taking advantage of natural light sources such as windows and doors.

 

Restrictions

Finally, be sure to discuss any specific restrictions your church has regarding photography. Many churches have rules about how photos can be taken and what type of equipment is allowed. Make sure you are aware of these restrictions before hiring a photographer so there are no surprises on the wedding day.
