CEREMONY

Walking Down the Aisle

When capturing the wedding party walking down the aisle, make sure to be at the opposite or alternative angle than the lead shooter. Shooting vertical helps clean up the space and block out any unwanted surroundings. When photographing from behind, make sure you are not visible to the lead shooter, who is usually at the top of the aisle. Capturing the bride from behind is important and whenever she is handed off to the groom. Also think of creative angles to compliment the lead shooters photos.

Don’t forget to capture each member of the wedding party walking down the aisle, included any family members, flower girls, or ring bearers, and the groom’s reaction of the bride walking down the aisle.

TOASTS & Speeches

You don’t have to overshoot toasts — focus on family and guests reactions, any cute moments the Bride & Groom have, when people cry, and when people Cheers or Toast. Whenever you do photograph the person giving the toast or speech, make sure to be intentional with your shot and get them when they are laughing, making a funny face, crying, or any time of emotion.
