Harpreet Bachher says, ask yourself why you’re a wedding filmmaker or photographer. Are you enjoying what you’re doing? If you’re not enjoying your job, stop doing it. There are 100s of other jobs that will pay you better. All you have to do is start enjoying your job.

Excel at Your Technical Skills

“Laugh a lot, but not at the cost of your profession, please understand there’s a thin line between a sense of humor and crossing that line,” says Harpreet Bachher.   If you’re good at what you do and you know the technical aspect of photography then you will enjoy the wedding. Work hard and get better at your technical skills because you’ll only enjoy your job when you’ve excelled at what you do.

Harpreet says, there is a thin line between what you give to your clients and what your clients expect from you. Learn to say no, if a client doesn’t come under your wavelength and is not understanding you. For a good sense of humor, you’ll have to start saying NO and select your clients wisely. If you don’t do so, you’ll have a tough time dealing with these clients.

Don’t Ever Show Your Best Work to Your Clients!

Harpreet says, if you show your best work to your client, you will surely close the deal but he’ll keep comparing his own wedding to your best work. Your favorite work has become your favorite work out of 100s of weddings you have shot.  Be honest with your clients, and state to them the reasons why your best work became your best work. 

Keep Your Calm

While filming or photographing a wedding, you’ll get stressed, you’ll get angry, and a lot of people will irritate you.  But that doesn’t mean you’ll not shoot them because it’s a life-long memory for them. Communicate with them, ask questions, and resolve things with them. 

Final Thought! 

Harpreet ended his session by saying, “Maybe after one or two years, we’ll re-unite as a community in real-time, physically.”  He also adds, “The real asset for me is all of you and not the money.” We hope these Pro Tips to Staying Humorous as a Wedding Filmmaker by Harpreet Bachher help you handle the stressful situations at the wedding.
