Add smiles to the Tears and Romance Humor is crucial in wedding photography for at least three reasons, according to the wedding shooters we interviewed.
First, it can break the ice with your subjects—an upbeat photographer is often rewarded with real, unforced smiles from subjects.
And most weddings are studded with humorous moments. Capturing them adds crucial leavening to your wedding albums.
Finally, as Todd Laffler, who shot the tongue-in-cheek portrait above says, “It’s important for me to capture fun and humorous images at a wedding because I want future clients who relate to such images. The result is I will hopefully attract other couples who like having fun.”
