It's important to give your photographer these extra sparkler tips as this could be the first time they're using wedding sparklers. It is easy for your photographer to create wonderful wedding sparklers images so do not stress!



Have A Designated Sparkler Helper 



  On the day of your wedding, it can be overwhelming with tasks that need to be completed. Do not let that hold you back and have an assistant or best friend that can help mediate between task or run some on their own. The more help you get the merrier you will be. It always helps if your assistant is a wedding photographer as well.



Organized Groups for Wedding Sparkler Exit



  We all want to take pictures with everyone at our wedding; however, it can be chaotic to even get that arranged. The most efficient way to organize this is to create a list of the groups and individuals that will take pictures with the bride and groom. No one wants to forget Uncle Bob or Great Grand Mary. Your photographers may not know who they are, but it is easier to organize this process by creating the order and groups before your wedding day.



Picking the Perfect Wedding Sparkler Photo Location



  Your reception venue of choice may have different areas throughout that are better photo areas than others. We advise you to walk the perimeter and scope the entire venue for the best locations to capture group photos or other event photos. By contacting the venue coordinator, they might be able to inform you of specific locations. As they have seen numerous weddings and events come through their doors. Consider picking a couple spots for your wedding sparkler exit beforehand and your photographer will help pinpoint the ideal location. You may be shocked, but you might have some wonderful sparkler exit locations besides the obvious exit.



Weather Delays, They Can Happen



  No one can predict the future, we only hope for the best. In the event of a drastic change in weather conditions, make sure you have a Plan B. Climate changes can happen the same day or there may be updates a few days before. If your weather update is a few days before you are in luck with time to prepare for an alternative. But fear not if you get hit with an unwanted weather update the day of your wedding. Plan for outdoor weddings to have an emergency tent and transportation on stand by with your venue or local vendors. You can also have the inside venue, if there is any, to be on hold in the event of an unwanted weather update. The good news is you can still use sparklers in a slight drizzle as long as it is not in a complete downpour.



Importance of Shutter Sounds



  No one wants to interrupt any of the important family speeches! The shutter sound on your cameras can be a real mood kill during speeches and any other time throughout the night where silence is key. There will be many friends and families that want to be the photographer for the night as well. Let them have their turn and then you the professional can take the lead.



Multiple Cameras To Capture Sparklers



  There are numerous tips that can be given; however, something as simple as using more than one camera is revolutionary. This will allow you to capture images and moments from different angles and perspectives. You are now able to capture double, triple, or even quadruple the number of photos for your event! Capturing a sparkler exit from each side can really give you some unique photo's you will not want to miss!



Keep Wedding Photo Mistakes



  The photos that do not come out perfect can indeed become favorites! These photos should be saved and can be looked back on in the future and guaranteed that you will see something new each time to reflect on it. 



Group Bridal Sparkler Shots 



  Group shots are the best way to incorporate all the friends and families. There can also be individual shots to follow. Many photographers will inform you that you will need a few assistants to get everyone in order for the group shots.



Burst Shots Are A Wedding Must



  Being able to shoot a considerable measure of pictures quick is extremely helpful on a big day so change your camera to burst shooting mode and utilize it. It's the shot you take a moment after the formal or postured shot when everybody is unwinding that truly catches the occasion!  This is extremely crucial when capturing wedding sparkler photos. Double check with your wedding photographer they can utilize burst shots with sparklers.



Prepare for Anything



  You never know when an accident may occur! Maybe wine spilled on the wedding dress or a missing wedding member for a specific set of photos. Accidents happen and it's best not to panic! Don't panic and instead move onto the next picture if someone is missing momentarily. If you do spill something on your dress your wedding planner always has stuff to cover it up or erase it! The worst thing you can do is let it ruin your day!
