TIPS on being a female photographer!

Well in my experience as a female photographer, I have been truly blessed to have mostly respectful clients but in more than one occasion I have had to deal with a guest hitting on me or asking me to dance. So what to do in such situations? Also, because of my height and baby face people don’t take me very seriously. In the last 11 months, I have learned to overcome such situations. I have also made sure my gender, and my looks don’t determine my ability.

First and Foremost :
– Dress normally, if not professionally. I put minimal makeup, conceal blemishes, try to look well groomed. I mostly wear jeans and a shirt.
– Don’t try to look attractive, try to look approachable.

– When you are confirming a deal always show professionalism.
– Avoid talks about your age
– If someone is trying to flirt with you, or ask you to dance TURN THEM DOWN NICELY. I have turned people down in my “sweetest” way. I reply ” smile please” and take a photo.
– Always have a smile on, but make sure you look serious about your job.
– Don’t take “breaks”. Stay on your feet as much as possible.
– If you are bothered by a certain incident, don’t let that show.

– There will always be outrageous requests from clients and it may be hard for you to fulfill them , turn them down nicely and remind them about your contract again (nicely)

Why I love shooting Weddings!

I have often been asked WHY I love shooting weddings when other sectors of photography have more opportunities. Before I begin my post, let me tell you I am completely against people spending a hefty sum on their weddings BUT I love weddings as long as they are fun and not done to show off. As a wedding photographer, we have to meet many kinds of people, shoot different cultures, listen to different love stories and sometimes arranged marriage stories.
My love for wedding photography is very straight forward : it is capturing a person entering a new life with a new partner. Weddings are amazing because every emotion is so genuine. When the bride smiles, she is smiling because she is happy not because she is a model for my photo shoot. When the groom smiles, he is smiling because he adores the bride. When they look at each other, they are just happy.
The other thing I love about weddings is the family bonding. I love how in that one event how you get to see so many relationships, so many emotions, so many smiles and so many tears of joy.
The best part and my favourite part about wedding photography is the trust our clients show in us. It is a special moment, and they trust us with life, we have no opportunity to mess up and I can VERY confidently say after the officiant our job is the most important jobs in weddings.
