Question 1 of 25

How do you handle directing guests for group photos?

"I like to make group photos a fun and fairly quick experience for everyone, so I try to engage everyone as quickly as possible without needing to shout or draw too much attention. When it is close to time to take group photos, my team and I will casually weave through the crowd and inform those involved that we will be meeting in a specific location in a certain number of minutes and to please meet us there. I always estimate an additional 2 to 3 minutes for guests to trickle in, so I give them a timeframe that is a bit before the scheduled time. Once we are all together, I will stay back with the camera while one or both of my team members will stand by the crowd and support them in arranging appropriately. I'll signal to them when it looks good, and we shoot!"
