This is a rant. It is a rant on wedding photographer attire.
One of the things I love to do at weddings and receptions is observe and learn from photographers and videographers when I am just an attendee. My eyes follow their actions and movements, the expensive glass they attach to their big camera bodies, the gun holster looking leather straps they use, and the way they move around and interact with their surroundings. This weekend was slightly different.
I attended my aunt’s wedding and the wedding photographer was wearing a baseball cap, a pair of Nike Roshe Runs, a pair of black pants (thankfully they weren’t yoga pants or sweat pants), and I think a track jacket? The cap Lol. I was so surprised with how casual the fit was. It seemed like a wedding CASUALty to me (ok, I’m stretching). It wasn’t even business casual. But hey, at least they weren’t shorts.
So I thought, what should wedding photographers wear exactly?
Photo peeps definitely need to feel comfortable and move around without any hitch in their step, but I think they also need to blend into their environment. I haven’t seen or read many guidelines about this, and I feel like the proper attire for photographers are quite loose so there is adequate room for movement and bending, but where is the line?
