The staged shots
Every wedding I have shot has had some element of staged or 'posed' shots. The aim of these really is to get some photos that will sit nicely in a frame somewhere. Hopefully with everyone looking at the camera smiling!
Lots of people balk at the thought of posing in front of the camera and many can find it awkward. Some think it's great fun. Whatever your feeling, my aim is to keep any posed shots fluid and fun. The my posed shots are never overly posed and more a collection of people having a laugh. I find a more relaxed approach helps put people at ease and get better shots. But if you have a bunch of guests who want to jump in front of the camera I won't complain either!
