How to Photograph the Bridal Party at a Wedding

The group shots at a wedding are some of the most important, but they can also present some of the most difficult challenges for the photographer. If that is something you struggle with, check out this excellent video tutorial that features an experienced wedding photographer sharing a wealth of practical advice on how to get the best shots. 

Coming to you from Katelyn James, this fantastic video tutorial will help you improve your bridal party photos. Of all the great tips James offers, one that I think is often easily overlooked is simply being authoritative. Of course, this does not mean being bossy or unpleasant, but on a wedding day, you are working on an extremely tight schedule, and there often is not time to allow people to become distracted or to socialize when you need to get shots done in an efficient manner. Don't be scared to take control of the situation and project an attitude of precision with a dose of pleasantness. Check out the video above for the full rundown from James.
