World Photography Day: Celebrating a day in the life of a wedding photographer
19 Aug 2021
Hi, I’m Anica Scholtz! Based in Tzaneen, Limpopo, I specialise in weddings, elopements and lifestyle sessions. In celebration of this year’s World Photography Day, I’d love for you to join in on a typical day in the life of a wedding photographer.
My day starts off with replying to some emails, balancing my own books and backing up folders.
Sharing beautiful client memories
When I’m done editing, I spend time carefully wrapping parcels and making sure they arrive safely and in one piece on the other side.
Next, I start cleaning and packing my gear before the photoshoot. My camera bag tends to get super full with all sorts of souvenirs and memories.
On my way
Then I’m off: I spend hours and kilometres in this nippy car of mine; scouting for locations and travelling to venues.
The main event
Finally, my favourite part of the day: working with people during a photoshoot!
Wrapping it up
I end the day off by planning timelines and schedules for (mostly) wedding clients.
Being a photographer requires passion and great time management. Flexibility is key as you navigate various tasks throughout the day. What is your schedule like? You’re welcome to share in the comments below.
