This is one of my formal photographs of the bride and groom at a recent wedding. Now I know you my be thinking, "Is he talking about a different photograph" but I'm not. Many people think of formal photographs as being stiff and lacking in emotion but they do not have to be. This photograph of the bride and groom was set up by me making it formal? I like to call this type of photograph editorial and I do a lot of this type of photography at my weddings. Most of my wonderful couples are not natural in front of the camera. If you say to most couples, please look at the camera and smile, you will get a forced smile at best. I use lots of techniques to ensure my formal / editorial wedding photographs don't look forced.
