Boys Will Be Boys: Shooting the Guys On the Wedding Day

Boys Will Be Boys: Shooting the Guys On the Wedding Day

I don't think anyone would disagree that a wedding day is all about the bride, and rightfully so don't you think?  That being said, we can't overlook the guys!  I was just scrolling through our blog looking at all the beautiful brides featured in our posts over the years and I realized we are leaving out the other half.  A true shame too because those grooms and groomsman take some amazing wedding photos.  Well, there is no time like the present!  Here they are ladies; the men you now call your husbands and a few of their best friends. 

I have to start with my favorite images from our wedding day shoots, the first-look photos.  They are always so incredibly impactful from the groom's perspective. Look at Jon as he watches Sara walk down the aisle at their Winson Salem wedding.  These two chose to have a true first look, spending the whole day separate until Sara started her walk down the aisle.  What you view here is Jon's genuine emotion as he see's his bride for the first time on their wedding day.  You see the same raw emotion from Peter as he watches Jenny make her way to him to say "I do."

When we think of wedding details that are typically captured by photographers the things that come to mind are the wedding gown, the bride's bouquet, the bride's heels...you see the theme?  Detail photography is not just for the ladies! We could never exclude the guys when it comes to capturing the intricacies of the day. Just look at Andrew's boutonniere below, such a simplistic, but elegant statement piece that photographs beautifully. And of course coordinated accessories are going to produce amazing images.  Testament below...Derek and his groomsmen had to show off their coordinated socks for the camera.

The groom and his groomsmen are the subjects of some incredible and dramatic wedding day images. We don't just make the girls do all the work. I know you guys are familiar with DaLice and Britta, but I bet their groom's aren't quite as well known to our readers.  Meet Greg and his groomsmen.  Greg requested to have some urban photography included in his wedding day shoot, and of course we were happy to oblige.  Romare Bearden Park is smack in the middle of Uptown and offers an amazing view of Charlotte's impeccable skyline.  And as you know, we LOVE the Charlotte Skyline!

And here is Matt!  As the wedding party was heading out after their wedding prep we stopped for this photo.  The day was insanely windy as you can see, which added a bit of the unexpected and drama to this wedding image.

So make sure you aren't underrating the guys on wedding day.  Their role is just as important as the ladies, and we will work a little harder at testifying to that on the blog. ;-)
