Today we have a picture of the Bride and Groom. This was taken when they were cutting the cake. I converted it to black and white to see if I liked it.
As I said yesterday, this shoot was done as practice, as they were originally not going to have any photographer other than the multitudes with their small digital cameras. As such you are competing with a lot of people with cameras. As a true wedding photographer you would have to be clear that you are the one photographer and they are to pay attention to you. Handling "family and friends" with their own cameras is one of the challenges you will face as a wedding photographer.
Take the shot above for instance. I had the full attention of the groom, but the bride was distracted elsewhere. While I like this shot I can't help but wonder if it would have been much better if she had been looking directly at my camera.
The challenges of wedding photography.
Have a great Monday.
