All in "wedding photography tricks"
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.
