Wedding Photography Tips for Beginners (#AskSamAnything)

#AskSamAnything is a Question and Answer series that provides photography tips and advice from Toronto and international wedding and portrait photographer – Samantha Clarke. In this video, I answer a question received via email from a photographer in Virginia that wants to start break into wedding photography after shooting mostly portraits. My answer provides some beginner wedding photography tips to help build confidence and make a connection with couples that want to hire her. I also discuss my tips for getting bright and candid photos.
