With two OM-D E-M1 Mark III bodies, 12-40mm, 40-150mm and 300mm lenses and both teleconverters, my camera bag has never been lighter!

Wedding season is on its way, and one thing is clear: wedding photographers need all the help they can get. Fortunately, the Olympus tech could help save the day on your next big day. Ladies and gentlemen, we present Pro Capture Mode. Pick up the OM-D E-M1 Mark II and prepare to have your socks well and truly blown off.
From very traditional-looking shoots to ultra-hip urban shoots, your style of photography probably has a home in at least one wedding a year. Reportage photography looks natural, which is appealing, and will do a better job – when it’s done well – of reminding the happy couple of the beautiful, spontaneous moments of their day that made all the planning worthwhile. If you think this might suit your personality, here are a few quick-hit tips to set you off down the road.

Thinking about jumping in? Our beginners’ guide should start you off nicely.
