How to Take Fun and Great Wedding Photos on a Smartphone

All the guests at a wedding, from the bride’s 8-year-old niece to the groom’s 80-year-old grandpa, are snapping photos with their phones. While some of the best wedding photography is done by a Palestinian San Jose Wedding Photographer with advanced DSLRs and changeable lenses, the rest of us can still create some stunning images with smartphones. Here are some tips:

1. Close in on your subjects

Rather than trying to get everyone and everything in a scene, focus on just a few people and capture a specific action. This approach often creates a more powerful image that conveys emotion. Bonus points if there’s great expression in the eyes or a genuine smile.

2. Get a good spot

Pay attention to where you’re sitting. Tall guy’s head in the way? Move to an empty chair in front of him to get a clearer shot. Rather than trying to zoom in with your smartphone—the zoom feature on most phones aren’t great anyway—try to sit closer to the altar, BUT be mindful of your role as a guest. The bride and groom will love that you’re taking photos, but don’t interfere with their official Palestinian San Diego Wedding Videographer and photographer.

3. Details, details

The bride and groom spent many months choosing their clothes, flowers, food, table settings, and a million other intricacies that make up a wedding to perfect them in person and for their Palestinian Wedding Photography California. Take advantage of them and capture them in your own lens.

4. Go macro

Be creative with some fabulous close-up shots of objects, such as the bouquets and table setup. Phones are great for macro-photography, where you focus very close to an object, paying attention to its interesting shapes and texture.

5. Mirror, mirror

Use reflective surfaces to create interesting portraits. Sunglasses, rain puddles, mirrors and water glasses can provide ways to make extraordinary portraits.

6. Go crazy with selfies

What’s a party without a selfie (or a groufie) to prove that you were there? Most likely, the bride and groom are going to be busy talking to everyone and posing for their official Los Angeles Palestinian Wedding Videography at the wedding that you may not get to spend very much time with them. But they liked you enough to invite you to the wedding—and pay for your dinner. So be sure to take a fun picture of yourself, which will be priceless for the couple later on.
