I believe the wedding day must be documented fully with the unique and intersecting stories of the guests as they enjoy the festivities.
The bride and groom may be the center of attention on the wedding day, but they’re certainly not the entire story. The day is also very much about the friends and family who have been invited to share in the joy, catch up with loved ones, and do a little partying. Or maybe a lot of partying.
Sideline shots broaden and deepen the story of the day, and are in fact an essential part of the record. I always try to surprise my clients with good sideline shots!
