If you are a fashion photographer, you can reasonably expect the range of locations you will shoot on to be small. Most of the time you will be in a well-lit, white room, using skills that you use every day and have honed to perfection. This is not the life of a wedding photographer; one day, you'll be shooting in the grounds of a castle, the next you will be at a sea life centre. In a guide that is both accessible to new photographers and useful for seasoned wedding photographers, Daniel Doke talks through how to capture a special day, wherever it takes place.
