4. ARRIVE EARLY AND TEST

If you’ve ever talked yourself out of trying something new during an engagement session out of fear you may not be able to pull it off, arriving early and testing your ideas out beforehand will quiet that doubt. Whether the idea involves a lighting technique you’ve never done before or a location you will be working in for the first time at a tricky time of day, an early arrival will allow you time and space to get familiar with your surroundings and test before the couple arrives. This means you can push the creative envelope with confidence.

5. USE AN EFFICIENT GEAR SETUP

When working on location, bringing only the gear you will need and want to work with will allow you to move around with ease. When you’re out on location, there is also so much room for gear to get lost along the way, particularly the small things like transmitters and flash modifiers. Take an efficient approach to gear and pack light.
