    Beginner Wedding Photography Mistakes: 03 Messy background

    Final wedding photography tips from our professional photographer: stand back to blur the background

    Most professional wedding photographers usually check out a wedding venue before the big day so that they can identify the perfect location for the essential shots of the couple and their families.

    A nice, clean background can make a huge difference to a shot, but don’t make the mistake of thinking that it needs to be plain or uninteresting.

    Shooting the couple in the doorway of the church, for example, gives context as well a creating a frame around them and it looks much better than photographing them in front of the hedge in the churchyard.
