What can a bride and groom do to get the best photos on their wedding day?
Before the ceremony, they can de-clutter the area where the photos are being taken. For the ceremony, the couple can consider the positioning of the bridal party and the bride and groom so that the photographer has the best vantage points from which to capture the important elements of the ceremony. For the post-ceremony shoot consider the time of day. Natural light is best closer to sunset when the light is golden and soft, as opposed to the middle of the day when the sun is highest in the sky casting more shadows. During the reception, consider lines of sight and allow room for the photographer to manoeuvre throughout the reception site to capture the energy of the reception.
What are some of your favourite locations to shoot post-ceremony photos?
My aim is always to customise my photography services to my clients, but my personal favourites are “urban” areas of the island, as well as forts and off-the-beaten-path locations. Specifically, I love shooting in St. George’s. It has so many interesting nooks and so much character.
