1. TIME IS YOUR BFF
Time is the single most important resource on your wedding day. When time is lost, so are the pictures. One of the most frequently observed mistakes in planning a wedding is not allotting sufficient time to the photographer for portraits. Many couples devote an hour to the photographer but don't take into account, time to travel to and from the photo destination, alternate traffic routes or even how many people will be part of the group portraits. TIP: Leave you're photographer approx. 90 minutes, excluding travel time, for portraits and group formals. This will make certain that your photographer has enough time to create the beautiful art you hired him/her for.
2. FORGET THE RECEIVING LINE
Many brides and grooms feel its important to greet each and every guest that attend their wedding. And so after the ceremony they decide to have a receiving line. The reality is that, the receiving line is a time consuming formality which feels good at the moment but only sometimes leads to great candid. Given the amount of time and energy it zaps from you, the one or two nice candids you get out of it, may not be worth all the great images you and your new husband/ wife could be shooting with the photographer. TIP: If "Time is your BFF", the receiving line is your Frenemy. Forget the receiving line because you are going to see everyone at the reception. Give that time to your photographer so you can have fun with your portraits.
3. SAVE YOUR STRENGTH
Many couples who haven't done a receiving line at the ceremony believe they ought to go to every table and shake every hand at the reception. Not so. I f time is a limited resource, than why not kill 2 birds with one stone. It is far better to take the couple to the dance floor and have the DJ make an announcement for anyone wanting to take a picture with the bride and groom should meet us on the dance floor. TIP: Be the star of the day, that's what you paid for. Have your guests meet you on the dance floor for a picture and you will get to greet each of them. You'll even get better pictures because the mood has changed and now everybody is dancing.
