Encore! Sunny Day Chasing the Clouds Away

Since I specialize in photojournalism, I prefer to keep the formal portrait sessions short.

Roxana and Claudiu had a beautiful fall wedding. After taking lots of photos of the bride and groom, we were running low on sunlight and took these group photos in about ten minutes.

Top 3 Tips for Short & Sweet Portrait Sessions

1. Focus on the bigger picture. Instead of photos with each one of your aunts and uncles, a group photo with the bride and groom with each of their families takes less time and your families can spend more time partying.

2. A photo with the entire bridal party can be fun. Especially if your wedding is short on time or sunlight, I recommend focusing on the entire bridal party and taking a few great photos of everyone, skipping the bride and bridesmaids / groom and groomsmen shots.

3. Save time for yourself. Although all your guests are important, I want to make sure to have the best photos of you, the newlyweds. After all, it’s your wedding!!!

P.S. This is my new blog series called Encore!

When I blog about a wedding or portrait session, I try to arrange all the photos to tell a story. Sometimes great photos don’t quite fit. Encore! will feature one (or two!) of those photos every Friday.
