Arranging Wedding and Family Photography

photo2Since bride’s family photography in Houston, TX is considered arranging a group, it is important that the professional you hired are well experienced in handling such challenge. Most of the time, wedding photography that involves groups is hard to manage. It clearly means that you should not let the job handled by a beginner or else you’ll get a devastating result.

Here are some of the basic tips in arranging a family photography session:

The photographer should have handheld remote and tripod. There is a magic when using a tripod. It gives a sense of central object to look at while the family is doing their poses. The purpose of the remote control is to avoid arranging the camera from time to time. Sometimes, it is awkward to the family if the photographer is around.

The Houston senior photographer should have wide angled lenses. This is an important factor especially when your family is composed of too many people. It is always better if you are looking at wide angled photos with detailed faces and expressions.

If you will be shooting in a certain location, please make sure that you have scoped the place ahead of time. By doing so, you can gauge whether you’ll need some accessories and props for the shoot. As much as possible, your photographer should be aware and familiar with the location. When picking a location, there is a need to focus on places that will not distract other people. There are so many options like open landscape meadows, garden, parks and etc. Golden hours like sunrise and sunset are also perfect for family photography that captures dramatic settings.  

Since this is a group, please remind your photographer to get multiple shots. There are cases wherein everyone’s expression is perfect, only to find out that one of your family member—say your mother or father—is not focusing on camera. By having multiple shots, you can choose the best photos with perfect expressions from family members’ faces.

Asking the family members to wear solid colors is also important. The clothing will affect the overall aesthetics of the photo. Solid colors means the attention will be drawn towards the facial expressions of the individuals in the photo. Please tell your family members to avoid wearing outfits with stripes and big logos for better photography results.
