That’s why we have put together helpful tips for photographing children at your own wedding. Keep reading to discover how you can have stunning photos of all your beloved wedding guests:

  • Interact with Them. Children are happy to respond to those that will interact with them or play with them. Take a second to visit with the kids attending your wedding so that you have genuinely happy moments to capture with them. They will be happy to play, and your photographer will be right there with the camera to capture organic photos.

  • Let Them Play. If the kids are your wedding have to stand still and pose for photos, their happy demeanor will take a quick turn for the worst. Let them play and enjoy the wedding festivities. The happier they are, the more beautiful photos you will be able to capture. Once they have hit the dance floor or taken time to expel some of their energy, they will be more at ease for their photography session.

  • Know When Enough Is Enough. It’s crucial for you that your guests enjoy your special day. When you force the children to stay in one spot for too long and pose for photos, their frustration will begin to show. It’s important to know when enough is enough for these little ones, and to not pressure them into having their photos captured.
