Never run out of memory cards or batteries
A truly professional wedding photographer makes sure that he never runs out of memory cards or batteries in the process all throughout the wedding photography shoot. Although you might think that packing in everything that you can possibly pack in is the quickest and the most efficient solution to this particular need that is actually not the case. It is something that goes way beyond than just buying everything that you need in one go. There are so many other things that come along and that you will need to prepare ahead of time so that you will be able to pull things off as seamlessly and as smoothly as you would like to as a wedding photographer.
Aside from just buying everything you may need, you also need to make sure that they are well taken care of as well. Your memory cards as well as your camera batteries need to be in excellent shape all of the time so that you will be able to make sure that you get things done the right way and that they don’t mess up somewhere along the way, most especially when you are smack right in the middle of a wedding photography shoot.
Double memory space
Bring in about twice the amount of memory space than you think you will consume as a wedding photographer during the wedding. This is so that you have enough leeway in terms of the shots that you are planning to take. It is always way better for you to pack in so much more than you will actually need other than end up lacking in the long run. More than that, memory cards weigh less to nothing and they are also quite tiny so it won’t really mess up your gear weight dynamics all that much when it all comes down to it. Make a habit out of constantly cleaning up your memory cards as well.
Constantly wipe out the data by transferring them to dedicated external hard drives.
This way, your memory cards are kept clean and in top shape all of the time. Formatting issues usually occur when the memory cards get archived saved data or when they have old files in them over a long period of time. You can’t afford to have your memory cards bail out on you because you could potentially lose a lot of important moments during the wedding if you do so. Take care of your memory cards and they will return the favor and take good care of you as the Leicester photographer as well.
You should also make sure that all of your camera batteries are charged fully and are in kept in a safe place until you will be able to get to a wedding photography shoot. There are usually a lot of places wherein you can get your batteries at about $20 or so a pop. It won’t cost too much of a dent in your budget when it all comes down to it so you can really pull it off.
