Welcome to my wedding photography blog for wedding couples and wedding photographers alike! Today we’re focusing on tips for amazing formal wedding photos!
1. Designate a Helper
Designate someone in the wedding party who knows most of your guests to help your photographer round everyone up for photos. Remember that formals take at least 5 minutes each.
2. Make a List
Make a list of 5 or 6 group shots, this may take half an hour, so you won’t be able to hold your smile much longer than that!
3. Big Groups First
Start big groups, end with VIPs. It’s easier to start with the big groups and take people out of the shot as you go.
4. Share Your List
Show people your list. Slip it into the order of service or have a sign out on show, to let everyone know who’s needed and tell them where to be and when. This will help get the formals out of the way so you can enjoy the rest of the day.
If you're a newly engaged couple looking for relaxed and creative photographers, book an informal chat on zoom to see if we're a good fit for your wedding.
