Your planner and/or entertainment director will have many helpful suggestions for the overall flow of the day and reception details. One important consideration will be the time needed for photography. While many couples prefer a more casual approach to their wedding photograph, with a more photo journalistic feel, there will always be some things that need to be posed, such as groups of family and friends and your wedding party.
Photography can be an exciting part of your day. Most couples really enjoy the time spent with their photographer. A experienced professional photographer will know how to put you at ease and allow you to enjoy the process while getting great natural images of your day. It is important to understand that many images that appear unplanned, especially in wedding magazines, are actually the result of direction from a photographer. A good photographer knows that a combination of posed groups, directed romantic images, and unplanned photo journalistic moments will provide a couple with the best images of their wedding day.
