3. While shooting groom portraits I like to stick them on the edge of open shade or on the edge of a light pocket. This brings tons of light to their face and illuminates their eyes. Giving that “smolder” look.
4. I ALWAYS shoot the pocket detail. It’s one of my favorite shots. I also love jawlines so this gives me the option to highlight that while showing off their boutonnieres & awesome ties/jackets!
5. Grooms shots max out at about 10 shots. Let’s be honest, gentlemen aren’t a huge fan of portraits. This results in me working quick, efficiently, and painless. What typically happens is I set the groom in a pose then move AROUND them. Catching different details as I move. This gives the opportunity to get multiple shots in one pose and allowing them to get back to their brides.
I hope those were useful and not too obvious or well known. I adore working with grooms and I also love getting good portraits for their ladies!
