The Wedding Photojournalists’ secret

My little secret: The go-to bouquet shot

I pride myself as a photojournalist and on approaching every wedding uniquely. For the most part, I do. But every now and then, I find myself pulling an old favorite out of my quiver of ideas and employing the “Go-To” shot.

One of these go-to shots happens to be my favorite bouquet shot. I take the bouquet from the bride, direct the bride and groom to practice their first dance, lie the bouquet on the ground in some nice light, lie on the ground myself and presto, ten seconds and I have a very interesting photo of the bouquet. I do have some non-traditional couples, but almost of them do some type of first dance. Spending a few minutes “practicing” takes their mind off of me and gives them a chance to just connect with each other.

It makes for a nice environmental photo of their bouquet that that lends itself to a wall hanging and also makes a fantastic scene setter for opening the wedding album.


What are your go-to shots??
