Tips for Photographing Children at Your Wedding

Children are full of energy! Therefore, it could pose as difficult to get them to cooperate when capturing wedding photos. From becoming easily distracted and quickly bored, it certainly isn’t easy to keep little ones focused on the camera.

However, with a couple tricks, you will be able to capture an array of stunning images of the children within your wedding.

Everyone, including the kids, should be beautifully captured within your wedding photos! That’s why, here at Joseph Hummel Photography, we have gathered some tips to assist you in photographing them. To learn what these tips are, be sure to continue reading:

  • Showcase Poses. Providing your little ones with a duty is a great way to keep them occupied for photographs. Have them showcase some poses that will provide a sense of fun for them. In addition, you can turn it into a game. Whoever can hold still the longest, wins a prize! This is a wonderful way to keep them still and focused on the camera.

  • Provide Props. If children have their hands full, they will be more prone to staying active for the camera. Consider having your flower girl hold her basket and your ring bearer hold his pillow. Also, having them hold hands is a great way to keep them occupied as well.

  • Gifts. Good behavior should always be rewarded. Providing the little ones with gifts for their great behavior while taking wedding photos will certainly motivate them to smile for the camera. Gift them something that they will enjoy, and let them have it after the photo session is complete.

Children are such a wonderful addition to a wedding photo collection! These are just a few tips to assist you in photographing them.
