The Line-Ups

​​The family line up! A seemingly simple set of photos, but one that can go wrong in so many ways in the wrong hands!

Firstly you may notice there isn’t a single family line up shot anywhere else on my website. The simple reason being they don’t really show off my style or ability, and usually just aren’t very interesting apart from to those who are in it! But after a couple of clients asked whether I do get those shots, I thought I better make it clear that I absolutely do, and every wedding I have ever shot has them.

​These shots may not be the most challenging to snap, but that’s not to say you can’t make them a bit special. The skill in these shots is to plan ahead, not to let it all get out of hand with a million variations, and to get them efficiently without taking 30 minutes of time you’d all rather be having fun! Can you remember being at a friend’s wedding and spending ages waiting around saying cheese? Well don’t worry, you won’t with me.

I have a few secret tricks I use that I’ll share with you before the day itself to allow us to work through these quickly, and in a controlled manner. Ultimately by working through them efficiently, it frees up my time to be taking more natural moments. I also try to add a bit of creativity to them where possible by finding an interesting angle or vantage point.

Although these shots aren’t working me to my hardest, I respect and understand how important they are, and during our pre-wedding consultation we will pan out exactly when and where we will take them. We have line ups from my wedding day, and they include my Nan who passed away soon after, so it is not a burden to capture.

Photography As Unique As You Are

Even if you don’t really know what you want, in a brief chat over coffee I will understand how best to approach your day, resulting in you being relaxed and able to enjoy your wedding and resulting in a set of images tailored to you.
