Cover Your Ass

Sometimes couples will tell you that they don’t want any posed pictures or maybe you only like to capture natural moments. In our opinion it’s worth getting a couple of safe shots to keep clients (and their parents) happy in the future. For example it’s a good idea to make sure you get one full length and one close up shot of the couple together looking at the camera and smiling. Often parents will have a whole wall of this kind of traditional formal from their own wedding or weddings of their other children and there will be a certain expectation that you’ll get this kind of shot. I joke about it with my couple and even say “Come on, let’s get the Mom shot – looking at me, smiling” – it’s often ordered for large prints by the family.

Neither Kate or I accept shot lists (except for a list of who’s who for immediate family formals) but it’s a good idea to talk to your couples before the wedding to find out if there are any images they have their heart set on so you don’t have headaches after the wedding
