The Secret to Epic Wedding Photography is Less Group Shots
Here’s the Deal. Nobody likes taking huge group family portraits on their wedding day. The people in the photos don’t like it. The people waiting on the people in the photos don’t like it, and typically, the couple are only having those photos taken because they feel some sort of pressure from society and social norms and nobody even knows why.
It most likely stems from back in the day when photography was relatively new and the only time people had photos taken were at weddings. You know, back when Lincoln was president and we were in the Civil War.

Wedding Planning Tips from a Photographer
Believe it or not, one of the best first things to do is decide what you want your wedding to look like. Will you have a church ceremony followed by a reception? Do you want to have it all at one place? Maybe a rustic barn or a swanky venue? Do you want a cocktail hour for your guests so you can take pictures in-between? Do you want to rent a limo and drive you and your wedding party all over the city? Do you want to meet up with your beloved for an hour or two beforehand, just the two of you, at a meaningful location? How do you want to end your night? Breathlessly dancing under a disco ball or with a sparkler send-off?
These are questions you get to ponder as you create your wedding timeline. I'll show you what a "typical" timeline looks like, but honestly, I don't work much with "typical" couples. . . and far be it from me to crush your creativity when it comes to your day!
