    Beginner Wedding Photography Mistakes: 04 Couple squinting in the sun

    How to shoot outdoor portraits in harsh, overhead sun

    If you are able to visit the venue before the wedding it’s well worth doing so at the same time of day as the service as you’ll be able to assess the position of the sun.

    It’s all very well identifying a nice background, but the couple won’t thank you if they are squinting into the sun in every shot.

    Look for a location that has a nice background and provides some shade – or rope in someone to hold a large diffuser.

    As well as avoiding squinting, shooting in softer light produces more flattering shots with less harsh shadows.
