Wedding Tips for Grooms | Mississippi Weddings

Often, guys aren’t really into wedding planning and aren’t jumping with excitement about being in front of the camera for Mississippi weddings, let alone for Wedding photography in general. I promise there are ways to make it enjoyable – even for the most uninterested groups of guys. Look below for 4 tips for guys on the wedding day!

It will be quick 

The goal on wedding day is to work at lightning speed – especially taking portraits of the guys! I’ll take basic photos and get specific requested shots immediately, so if you want or need something particular to be done, you’re good because I’ll get them quick! For Mississippi Weddings, I understand the importance of getting you out of the Mississippi heat as quickly as humanly possible! Those suits can be miserable, I know!

You’re just hanging out 

Very rarely (if ever) will guys be by themselves – they’ll either be with family, groomsmen or their soon to be bride. Forget about the camera and the girl behind it. Just hang out and have fun with them!

Do it for your bride

No, you might not care about good photos – but your bride and family would love to have great professional photos of you and it will make them so happy to take photos with you!

You’ll probably have fun 

I always make it fun and super laid back. I love joking around with you too. I’ll incorporate your style and personality into photos so they feel like your photos – because this is all about you!
