Wedding etiquette

Wedding etiquette
I have seen it all so I have decided to write about wedding etiquette
*Reply promptly to the R.S.V.P
*Arrive on time
*Dress as stated on invitation, casual, black tie but do not out shine the bride.
*Stand up for the bride when she walks down the aisle.
*Stand up for the bride and groom as they are announced publicly for the first time as husband and wife
*Do not join the dance floor during the bride and grooms first dance
* It is rude to just show up for the reception and not the ceremony unless work is involved.
* Mingle with the guests
*Keep your phone off and in your pockets or purse, this not a place for face book.
* If you do not know what to get the bride and groom for a gift a check to a least cover the meal and drinks is much appreciated.
*On the topic of gift, see where they are registered at
*If you bring your toddlers, watch them or better yet get a baby sitter. We actually had the wedding cake pushed over and fall to the ground from an unattended 3 year old.
*Smile for the photographer, the photo is not for you, it is for the bride and groom
*Have a few drinks, but do not get drunk
*Please do not make several trips to the buffet unless no one else is in line and there is plenty of food left.
*Sit at assigned table, So much thought goes into the seating arrangement and the bride and groom try to seat you with people you know or guests with something in common with you
* Do not bring un invited guest, this includes children.
*If you are planning to be married soon, do not make it all about your wedding.
*Respect religious traditions of the bride and groom, you may learn something at the same time if this is not a religious wedding do not insert your opinon.
* Do not leave until the cake cutting tradition.

*Do not take the microphone from the DJ unless it is OK with bride and groom
*Do not make song request unless it is ok with bride and groom
*If you do capture photos of the bride and groom do not post them on social media until the bride and groom see them, most likely they hired a professional photographer, let them do their job.

For the Groom- No funk face or jaw drop

For the groom: No funk face or jaw drop.
When I first started as a wedding photographer in the 80’s in L.A. California, I was an assistant photographer to the best wedding photographers. They were great mentors and I owe so much to them. They got me where I am today, but since then I have learned a few tricks on my own to capture the best shots at a wedding.
Example: This is for the groom. I will tell you now you will never be prepared enough for when you see your bride for the first time walking down the aisle. First off, you know she is beautiful and the love of your life, but when a woman is a bride about to marry her soul mate she has a glow like never before. Her beauty will even pour out through her flawless make-up and hair. You will see her walk differently in a beautiful gown with a smile that is familiar, but you never have seen her smile like this. This is your soul mate coming towards you to vow spending the rest of her days with you for better or worse.
As you soak this view in it finally hits you that this is it, you are really getting married! On top of that you will be overwhelmed by her beauty. This is what causes JAW DROP or FUNK FACE. Your wedding photographer will want to capture your expression as you see your bride for the first time. The photo is usually not pleasant. Sometimes a FUNKED FACE or JAW DROP can look like disappointment, but we know it is not disappointment. There is a simple fix to this Mr. Groom, as you are standing there with your officiate and groomsmen promise yourself to smile. Not a fake smile, just smile. Once you think about this I promise the FUNK FACE/ JAW DROP will not appear.

Wedding cake

Make choosing your wedding cake a fun time, call bakery’s ahead of time to schedule a tasting Make sure when you purchase your wedding cake you make sure you get the right size for the amount of guests you will have at your ceremony, you do not want to be short but most of the time there is a lot of cake left over.

Try not to buy because it is beautiful, in most cases it’s a wow factor that last for about 5 minutes and remember less is more.

Make taste a priority and remember cream icing does not do well in the summer months unless you have it inside a cool venue not by a window facing the sun.

Next Smoosh or not to smoosh that is a question. If you are having a traditional religious ceremony and reception talk to your Reverend or Pastor.

If you are having a fun, casual wedding it is up to the both of you to make that first soul mate decision. I photographed a wedding a while back where the bride and groom smooshed the parents .Image

If don’t want to spend the money to hire a professional wedding photographer then you should have a friend with a nice camera do your wedding photography. That way if your wedding pictures are not spectacular at least you didn’t pay some amateur a few hundred dollars to shoot them! If you want professional wedding pictures capturing all the special emotions of your wedding day, you are going to have to hire a professional wedding photographer with the knowledge, skills, equipment, and experience needed. At a wedding you only get one chance to get it right and capture the moment.

The rates for professional wedding photography are usually going to vary from one part of the country to another. What you are expecting from your photographer will also have some weight in the wedding photographer prices you get.

Some of the options you have to decide on are:
Do you want natural looking pictures?
Do you want a Photoshop expert that will change the color of your lipstick, reshape your nose, and remove every blemish?
Do you want your pictures to look like a Mannequin?
Do you think you will want to have prints made?
How many hours do you want to have pictures taken?


Once you’ve made those decisions you will be ready to start looking for wedding photographer that will fit in your budget.

If you want your wedding photographer to spend 50-200 hours editing your photos then you should expect the prices to start at $2000 and go up to several thousand dollars. If you want natural looking pictures, those require less editing and professional wedding photographers should start at about $1000. If you are in a major city and you want to hire one of the area’s most popular photographers you should expect to pay triple what the lesser known wedding photography rates are.
