Make Them Laugh

When capturing a wedding, you really want to be able to portray those true feelings of joy on camera. So why not set the mood by telling a joke or two that will make the bride, groom, and bridal party laugh. Joke about how it’s too late to run away now or make a comment that you know will draw a giggle. This will help your bride and groom to feel more relaxed and happy.

Don’t forget the Important Photos

Never forget to photograph the things that are important to the bride and groom. This could be that one shot they wanted to try, the photos with the older family members, their first dance – whatever it is, make sure you know the most important shots for the day.

Get Them To Kiss

There’s nothing more romantic than some adorable photos of the happy couple kissing each other on their wedding day. All dressed up, beautiful dress and handsome tux, you need to get lots of intimate and, dare we say, passionate shots of the bride and groom.

Encourage Chit Chat

Some of the best wedding videos and photos are shot when the couple is encouraged to talk to each other about something that has nothing to do with the wedding. It eases the stress they might be feeling and gives a more natural feel to your shots. Give it a try! It works.
