Photographing the Processional
The couple are seconds into their union- husband and wife.
It is seconds into a process that for some has started years before. The Processional.
The release of emotions at the moment of the processional is spectacular.
This is a must have shot that all wedding photographers must get- it’s on par with the kiss.
Capturing it is pretty easy to with the right gear.
A zoom is preferable because of the low depth of field and the ability to flatten the background. This will help keep the focus on the subject.
A word of Caution. You will be walking backwards. So please be extra careful you dont trip or bang into something. I have seen so many Youtube videos of photohs walking backwards and falling into something.
I love the various reactions you will get from the couple. They are either making contact with certain people in the church- a wave or handshake, or they are stealing occasional glances at each other.
Regardless of what they are doing – they are always beaming with joy. These reactions are priceless.
These are tremendous pictures your clients will love.
