Wedding Day Photo Tips

If there's one tip I can give you that will make your wedding day run more smoothly than anything else, it's coming up with a list of family shots ahead of time. Organizing these shots so that there is a minimum of shuffling of people is also key. These shots are really important, and the faster these shots are done, the happier your guests will be, and the sooner you can enjoy more time with your guests.

Attention to detail like putting shots of young kids and elderly people at the beginning of the shot list and near the ceremony site will keep everybody happy.  Kids would rather be running around and playing and perhaps getting into the wedding cake when no one's looking, and some elderly people may have mobility issues and trouble standing.

In some families there have been separations or divorces and arranging these shots with care is important to avoid any unnecessary tension.

In the case where a family member is no longer with us, special arrangements can be planned ahead of time to honour their memory.  Sometimes candle ceremonies are performed or a thoughtful arrangement of photographs or objects is  displayed in their honour.

Family is such an important part of our lives and with some careful planning, these photos can be created quickly, efficiently, and tactfully.
