So, I kinda shot my first wedding a couple of weeks ago, and it went fairly well. There were, however, a few things that came up as an issue. The mother of the bride was in charge of food, so I suggested we do family shots first, then the bridal party, groom and groomsmen, group shot and then the bride a groom together before we ran out of natural light. I figured this would make sure that everyone would be taken care of in order of commitment to the wedding photos. What ended up happening is the mother of the bride ended up getting frustrated because the guests had finished or had no interest in their horderves and wanted to get their main meals. So, we ended up with very few shots of the bride and groom together. Is there a better way to do this so that it’s broken up a little bit more? They were very adamant about not seeing each other before the ceremony and I have another wedding coming up in a week. I just want to see what great tips I can get from you guys. I really appreciate it all!
I have a few friends who work weddings, they usually schedule about an hour for the pictures after the ceremony ends at the church. The gardens surrounding most churches make for excellent backgrounds, or so I’m told.
