Wedding Guests can Capture Unforgettable Photos by this way – Tips From A Pro

The trend of guests wanting to capture their own photos at weddings they attend has only increased in the last year. While some think this adds a personal touch to the celebration, others worry that snap-happy guests will get in the way of the professional photographer the couple hired at great expense!  

Claudia Postigo, the owner of The Planner Co., provides a comprehensive guide for guests who want to capture great shots without interfering with the professional photography.

How To Deal With Unplugged Weddings

Since many couples are going for ‘unplugged’ ceremonies these days – and sometimes entirely phone-free weddings – you may be asked not to take any photos at all. Guests need to respect the bride and groom’s wishes regarding photography, so if the couple requests an unplugged ceremony or asks guests not to take photos during specific moments, it’s essential to honor their wishes. Refraining from taking photos will ensure an uninterrupted and immersive experience for everyone involved.

How To Avoid The Professional Photographers

It’s also essential to show respect for the professional photographers hired for the occasion. Guests should be mindful of their presence, refrain from obstructing their shots, and defer to their guidance during formal photo sessions to ensure the seamless execution of the couple’s vision. Claudia says, ‘Remember, not only did the bride and groom pay for their services, they very likely have worked out a shot list of key moments for the photographer to capture. You could mess this up if you get in the way.’

Make Sure To Choose The Real Moments

Focus on capturing candid and spontaneous moments rather than replicating the formal shots taken by the professionals. This adds authenticity to the wedding album, as candid photographs often capture moments both the professionals and the bride and groom aren’t watching. Candid photos can be looser, quirkier, and more unique than the formal shots simply because they come from random chance!

Make Your Photos Look Amazing

Since you’ll probably be using your smartphone to capture those perfect moments, Claudia has some tips on optimizing your phone’s camera settings to significantly elevate your photos’ quality. 

Claudia says, ‘Simple adjustments such as focusing the shot properly, adjusting the exposure, and utilizing grid lines for composition can enhance the visual appeal of smartphone photography and ensure stunning results. Exploring creative features like portrait mode or HDR can add artistic flair to the images.’

Guests attending outdoor ceremonies can maximize the beauty of their photographs by harnessing the power of natural lighting. Positioning themselves strategically to capture the best angles and using ambient light can result in breathtaking, well-lit images that encapsulate the magic of the moment. 

Elevate Your Snaps With Creative Photography Techniques

You can make your photos even more fun by exploring creative photography techniques, such as capturing reflections in water or glass surfaces. This adds depth and visual interest to your photos, making them stand out. Reflections can create stunning visual effects that enhance the overall aesthetic of the images.

Claudia says, ‘Additionally, guests can incorporate negative space into their compositions by leaving areas of the frame intentionally empty. This technique can draw attention to the main subject, creating a sense of balance and visual interest in the photograph. Experimenting with different angles and perspectives can also add depth and dimension to the photos, creating visually captivating compositions. Get down on your knees, stand on something, or even hide in the bushes; you can use hundreds of interesting angles for photos.’

Putting It All Together

After the event, it’s a great idea to set up a way for guests to share their photos through designated platforms or social media channels. Claudia says, ‘If the bride and groom haven’t set something up, offer to do it for them – they’ll probably thank you for taking something off their plate!’ A collection of everyone’s photos allows all the guests to enjoy a diverse collection of memories and ensures that the couple receives every possible photo of their special day.

Guests can play a significant role in documenting precious moments while respecting the work of professional photographers. Claudia says, ‘Strike a balance, embrace your creativity, and let the wedding celebration become a collective effort to preserve beautiful memories.’
