Few things look better in wedding photos than genuine, heartfelt smiles and laughter. But getting guests, family, and bridal party members to laugh and enjoy themselves during a long day and multiple photo shoots can be next to impossible. So, how can you get your friends and family to smile like they mean it? Here are 5 tips for any wedding, whether you're just snapping photos or taking professional pictures.
Slide shows are a great way to entertain your guests at your wedding reception. It can get a little boring in that period of time before or after dinner when there's a lull in your reception and there's only so much polite conversation to be had. The addition of the slide show can help not only conjure up a few laughs, but get your guests to reminisce about the past a bit as well.
Being proud of your family is something that may come automatically to you. There is a great deal of work that's involved with raising kids and getting all of the daily tasks completed. You may want to treat you and your family to having photos taken of all of you together. If so, you will want to be aware of specific tips to help these turn out as well as possible.
If you're new to newborn photography, the very prospect of trying to capture those tiny little fingers and toes can be intimidating. The more you understand ahead of time about how to simplify the process, the easier the entire shoot is likely to be. Although there are some things you can't completely avoid, such as crying and messes from the baby, you can take some steps to create a calm, soothing environment.
Your wedding day is one of the most important days of your life. It is also one of the times in your life that you will look your absolute best. And everyone who is special to you will be there, looking beautiful as well. No wedding is complete without a photographer who is there to capture the magic that happens when you join forces with your favorite person while your family, friends, and loved ones cheer you on.
