Apart from the groom and bride, on the list of photographs a wedding photographer needs to take, few can rival family portraits in terms of importance. If you want to make sure you capture all of the shots you wish to, make sure you watch this video tutorial that provides an array of practical and actionable tips along with behind-the-scenes footage of how a wedding photographer tackles the challenge.
This video tutorial comes from Jana Williams; this tutorial video is excellent and provides helpful tips for creating wedding portraits of the family. While it’s great to be able to meet as many of your family members as you can prior to the wedding, as Williams mentions, regardless of whether it is due to availability or size or availability, there are times when that isn’t possible.
This is the time to have not just an inventory that lists the family members in every group required for various photos but also a person beside you who has a basic understanding of the family and will assist you in attracting their attention and managing them effectively to ensure that you don’t forget anyone. You maximize the typically brief amount of time in which to take all your photos. Watch the video above to get the complete rundown from Williams.

This video is from John Branch IV Photography. The video tutorial explains the present “engagement gap.” Although there’s a lot of excellent advice within the video, the most important idea is to be aware that this won’t last forever. The world has mostly recovered from COVID in terms of social interactions, which means it is reasonable to anticipate trends in relationships and dating to improve and wedding and engagement bookings to recover.
