We've all been a part of a large group photo before at one point of another. We stand there and smile until our cheeks give out and with a no longer genuine smile at that. It's tiring, I get it. But if you're on the other end of the camera, you'll understand why sometimes it just take a little bit more time to get that perfect shot.
Welcome to another installment of How to Take Better Photos! This week in the blog: Group Photos!
As photographers we are expected to have a eye for details. But even if you not a professional, that doesn't mean you don't have to.
Here are the Top 5 things to consider when taking group photos to take better group photos:
Wanna know something about taking pictures that a lot of people don't know? Always wonder why some photographers take photos in the shadows instead of in the light where "there's more light"?
Well you're in luck, friends. I gotchu! ;) I've collected tips which stem from the same topic: How to Take Better Photos. With this mini-series I intend to educate my clients in what my reasoning for working the way I do as well as teaching you simple tips and tricks in creating better images for your everyday photo taking. Go on, keep reading!
Have you ever seen a wedding blog or magazine and fell instantly in love with the decor or floral arrangements? Or the way the makeup and hair on the bride looks so flawless? If you answered yes to all of the above, chances are you're either getting married or you're like me and love wedding magazines a little too much. No judgment here!
In my years of shooting weddings, I've learned one major fact: When searching for your wedding vendors, you need to be selective.
Just as you search for your wedding photographer, you want to be sure your cake and floral arrangements suite your style as well.
Here's something I wish I would've told my first couples in the past:
Her wedding ceremony was planned to start in 30 minutes, and she couldn't find her shoes. Her bridesmaids couldn't them, and the flower girl hadn't been dressed yet.
The bride was--to say the least--flustered.
The mother of the bride found her shoes in the hotel laundry hamper. All everyone knew was life was restored and the ceremony continued as planned.
If you're reading this and you're wondering, how did the shoes get there? No one knew.
Why didn't anyone know? Well, because no one was given that job.
You see where I'm going with this?
Everyone knows the old saying that no matter how much you plan for something, nothing goes as planned. But what I like to say is not everything will go as planned.
