B&H Wedding Guide: A Photographer’s Pre-Shoot Checklist

If you’re new to the business of wedding photography, here are some suggestions on how to plan your coverage of the great event—what you should check out in advance, conversations that are helpful, and what you should do to ensure that your equipment is in tip-top shape.

Holiday 2012: Family Pictures in Low Light

As the holidays approach, it’s a good time to get your game on, in terms of all those family photos you will be taking.
