Guide To Natural Photos You Can Get At Any Wedding

If you’re looking for wedding photo ideas on glamourous websites, or even Pinterest and Instagram, then you have to keep in mind that those photos were taken by different people at different times, in different conditions and possible in a different location.

Wedding photography these days revolves around capturing natural moments. 
Once you start giving your photographer lists of photos you want taken then they stop capturing natural moments, because they have to try to contrive unnatural moments that look natural, because it happened naturally at someone else’s wedding once.
BTW the only list of photos I’d want you to give me is of the group photos, that’s actually really helpful. 

If you’re going to give your photographer any lists other than the group photo list, here is one I recommend.

What’s that, you haven’t got a photographer yet? 
Walking Down The Aisle and The Reaction.
Not everyone bursts into tears, that moment when you both clap eyes on each other as one of you walks down the aisle is a moment to behold.
Straight off the bat this is one of my favourite shots, and one that I make sure I’m in position for every time.

Walking Through Confetti
It actually takes quite a lot of ushering on my part to get people into the right position.
Once I give everyone the go-ahead, it’s all natural.
Sometimes guests throw the confetti into the couples faces, sometimes they swallow a little and choke, sometimes they look down, look up, get separated in the confusion….
Whilst there is nothing natural about the situation, the moment is genuine, loads of fun and makes for amazing natural photos.
