OK, I’ll be honest; THE best subjects to photograph at weddings are kids (so maybe after the bride and groom, and the cake, and flowers and…you catch my drift though right?) I absolutely love photographing babies and children. My own son is two and they are always so intensely busy with their own little projects whether their grown ups are playing directly with them or otherwise preoccupied with some silly adult task like, you know, getting married! They don’t get our world and they rarely care, instead utterly entranced by an ant climbing a wall, the way a flower petals fall just so when pulled and dropped in the wind or the way adults scream and run when they wobble the table leg of a very pretty cake stand!
Needless to say they make excellent subjects simply by introducing a bit of that photo-magic I like to call chaos. As you are probably aware by now I am a passionate documentary photographer and children give me everything I need to take amazing shots, as always I am equally happy to do ‘posed’ shots but it can definitely be helpful to adjust your expectation of what this means in advance!
