Group shots at weddings are tricky. I'm guilty of glancing over the creative aspect of the large shots and just want to get them done. Logistically it can be very difficult to get everyone together and happy. I dread having to "shout" so everyone can hear me. "squish together and everyone at me!" It's a bad first impression of my personality. These shots also aren't regarded as the blog worthy award winning photos. You just do them so you can move on to the fun sweetheart photos. I always struggle with this because I want every image to reflect the personality of the couple and the excitement of the day and to reflect my vision and style as well. I need to say Thank you to the girl in the front row who rejuvenated me. She reminded me that everything around me is art and even the ordinary, must have shots can be special and frame worthy. Thank you sweet lady!
This next photo I like alot too. I know you all think I'm crazy when I say "everyone shout yay like this" (with my arm in the air). I see the speculation of insanity in your eyes, but I do it at every wedding anyways cause I love what it produces. Every persons response reflects their personality and each individual face reflects a different expression. I love it!
