Here at CineCrown, we pride ourselves in capturing the most natural, candid portraiture possible. This style showcases your day as it was, helping to bring your personality forward and documenting your day for a lifetime of memories. While we shoot the majority of our images this way, it’s also very important to capture traditional formal portraits. These group shots are best immediately when everyone is ready and fresh, right before the ceremony; and since our most important goal is getting you to your wedding on schedule, we allow 3-5 minutes for each desired grouping to ensure maximum results with minimal time.
A FORMAL AFFAIR
Weddings are a gorgeous combination of posing and candid shots. Putting the fun in formals is what we’re all about. Even in a flurry of excitement, we can offer a few tips to help wedding parties strike the best pose yet:
ON TIME AND TERRIFIC
Because we prefer to shoot these group shots when everyone is ready and fresh, right before the ceremony, meeting at the designated spot 15 minutes before the formal ensures an on-time arrival. Since our most important goal is getting you to your wedding on schedule, we allow 10 minutes for each desired grouping to ensure maximum results with minimal time.
FESTOONED AND FABULOUS
Make sure all flowers and boutonnieres are delivered on time and affixed to family members and to the wedding party in advance. Have hair and makeup teams arrive extra early since those tend to cause a delay more than anything else.
FORMAL THEN FUN
Because we prefer to keep the number of groups to ten or less for more intimate group shots, we always start with the largest groups and families and break it down after that to allow for mingling. As time permits, we love to include a picture of the bride with each of her bridesmaids and the groom with each of his groomsmen, since each person has been invited due to close, personal ties with the couple
