Your wedding will be such a wonderful event! Comprised of lovely elements of décor, delicious cuisine, and festive entertainment, you will certainly enjoy your celebration with your closest friends and family members.
With an array of guests celebrating your nuptials with you, you will want to ensure that you capture photos of them all! However, if you will be having children attending, they may pose as more difficult to photograph.
We understand how high energy children are! That’s why, here at One Fine Day Photographers & Videographers, as Long Island wedding photographers, we have comprised some tips to assist you with photographing children at your own wedding. Be sure to continue reading to discover what these tips are:
- Props. Children tend to lose focus easily! Which, in return, can cause them to not focus on the camera when having their photos captured. When photographing your flower girl and ring bearer, provide them with props to hold onto, such as their flower girl basket and ring bearer pillow. This way, they will be focused on holding onto their items, so that they can focus and smile for the camera!
- Their Own Place. If children feel as though they have a duty to fulfill, it will make them feel important! So, when having their photos captured, make them feel as though they are in charge. By providing them with their very own place to stand, and by telling them that it is their spot, and to not let anyone take it, they will feel superior, allowing them to stand boldly as they have their images captured.
- A Treat. A little bribery never hurt anyone! So, let the children know that if they behave and act appropriate when having their photos captured, they will receive a treat! Whether it be candy or gift, you can ensure that they will behave much better if they are going to be rewarded.
You deserve to have fabulous photos captured of the little ones on your big day! These are just a few tips to assist you with capturing yours.
