Family photos are a staple of almost every wedding I've photographed for the past 20+ years. And for good reason. It may take years to happen but these images often become an important part of your families history. But today's clients are seeking more casual, candid images - even with family photos.
When I photograph families and small groups I set up the group in great light, take a quick look to make sure everyone has details in order including boutonnières, ties, bouquets, and then capture a standard image of everyone looking at the camera. That will get delivered to the client, of course. But then I "break" the pose, asking the subjects to look at each other, or laugh, or hug, or handshake. And that's how these effortlessly candid family wedding photos are created. When you see your wedding photography gallery, different generations may have different favorite styles of family photography, and that's OK because it's all there for everyone to select what they love.
