Brides, grooms, and bridal parties often think they need to be serious when it comes to wedding day photos. They try to make sure they’re as formal as possible when posing for pictures. Maybe they feel like they need to take picture-taking seriously … and that if they don’t, it might seem like they’re not showing enough respect for the day, the guests, the photographer, and the bridal couple. But the truth is, the photographers AND the bride and groom want everyone to have fun! And they want that fun to show in the pictures! Yes, they want their wedding to be taken seriously. Yes, they want everyone looking their best. But that doesn’t mean you can’t goof off for some pictures! Everybody loves looking back, seeing the laughter, remembering how much fun it all was. Plus, with everyone having a good time, the photographer’s job is much easier. Often, it’s these fun pictures that turn out to be the best!
So, shed the formalities and seriousness when it comes to wedding day photography! Don’t be afraid to be yourself! Let your personality shine in the pictures, and most of all, have some fun!
