I love capturing the most natural, candid portraiture possible and believe that this style shows how your wedding day really was, shows the true personality of those with you on your day, and documents the wedding for a lifetime of memories!
Most of your wedding images are candidly caught, however, it's also important to capture more traditional formal group poses as well, where everyone is looking at the camera and smiling. It's good to get traditional shots done as soon as the ceremony has finished so we have more time for fun and candid ones and you can continue to enjoy your day. These group shots are best immediately when everyone is ready and fresh, right after the ceremony. The heels haven’t started to rub any feet yet and the groomsmen are still possibly happy with being in their full suits. It's good to allow 1-2 minutes (on the basis the individuals are close by) for each desired grouping to ensure maximum results with minimal time, so make sure all the flowers and boutonnieres are delivered on time and attached to the wedding party and family members.
If you have any ideas for important ‘cant-miss’ portrait groupings, there's a section on your wedding questionnaire for you to add in additional groupings. We’re here to work together in capturing all of your special moment! When it comes to organising a photo list it might seem like it's a lot to plan but it is 100% worth it as you will have those photos of your loved ones forever to remember them and your day by.
Here's our guide list for group photos:
