When Just One More Picture Means More

Listen, if you have been a photographer for any length of time, you have probably run into that one person in every group photo session who wants to make the photos all about them.

Everyone else in the photo is willing to actually work with you to get a good picture…

But then that special someone comes along who doesn’t want to cooperate with you. Maybe it’s the overly enthusiastic aunt who wants to pose extravagantly for every shot, or the friend who insists on photobombing every group photo. Whatever the case may be, it can be a challenge to keep things on track when one person wants to hog the spotlight.


Listen, most people dont want to stand around having their photo taken when they could be doing something else. Personally, I feel uncomfortable having my picture taken. It’s one of the reasons that I try to get through the more formal photos of the family and wedding party as quickly and painlessly as possible without sacrificing quality. The more we all focus on this part of the day, the sooner it will be over with and you can get back to celebrating! #weddingphotos #weddingphotographer #weddingphotography #weddingtiktok #weddingtiktok2023 #weddings #weddingparty
