They hung out by the venue, some took phone calls during photos, the girls went for ice cream, Meghan played with a pup. They had fun and we photographed it.
This is some of the most fun I’ve had doing wedding party photos. I waited while everyone moved themselves while conversing and laughing. When things played out in a composed way, I would take a picture.
I love that they naturally created “levels” with themselves which always makes for interesting pictures. (A couple of people stood at the top of the stairs while talking to others at the bottom.) When scenes like that played out I would take the bride and groom and place them beside their friends, while they were carrying on their conversation.
I always love when groups of people are doing separate things in one frame.
