When The Groom Becomes The Photographer

I’ve already described how fun and imaginative our photographer Alex was, and one the best things we learned is that his creativity continues even when he’s not the one behind the camera!

How did he manage this? During our sunset photo session, he handed a camera off to Stephen so that he could snap a few fun shots of me! Having the groom take control really helped me loosen up, and I had a blast laughing, blowing kisses, and shimmying around in my dress.

Of course, ever the pro, Alex took advantage of this and captured the entire shoot from the sidelines. Here, a few our favorites, including a couple shot by my very own husband.





Did your photographer have any unique tricks up his or her sleeve, either during the wedding or at your engagement shoot? What about any other vendor?

  2. I love this! A friend of mine also took photos at his own wedding. He is known for always being the guy who sticks a camera in your face, so it was very appropriate.

  6. I love these photos! And no, my photographer sucked when it came to finding creative ways to get us and the wedding party to loosen up or do something fun and active. He was horrible at giving direction or tricking us into cool and fun poses. I love this idea! So fun!
