Wedding Photography TIps: How to Photograph Children At Weddings

Last Updated :

Snapshots of children bring in a natural smile. It is fun to see your youngest guests; nephews, nieces, and cousins, with their cutest moves on your big day. Every subject needs special care, and photographers would know the joys of capturing their little, energetic subjects. The innocent heart-melting moments of children on the big day are something to look out for. Try and look out for the soul of your subjects, connect to them and you will find some awesome captures.

Tips to Photograph Children at Weddings:


1. Be geared up

There are a multitude of things running on the big day. Remember to just be geared up to capture some natural fun moments that the children are into. Time is crucial, as you would have planned a lot of captures. But don’t miss out on photographing your little delights.

2. Natural works best

Children may not be in their best elements when asked to pose. Faking is not just their thing. Simple minds that just wish to have a fun time on the big day; so go their way and try and capture them at their natural best, not requesting any poses.

3. Have fun

Fun is something, which will automatically reflect. So if you are having fun, likely chances that the children too would have fun. And you will find an array of perfect shots while they are trying and having a good time with you around, which at heart is all that you could ask for.

4. Mood swings

It is natural that children will have their mood swings. It is best to accept, and try and work your way around with swings. Relax, be patient with your young subjects and remember when you were a child, how would you have best related to a photographer. Also realize that the generation is different but they are still the very same, being a child!!

5. Show your captures

Children are inquisitive and love to observe. It is logical that you capturing them will not go unobserved, so treat them showing your captures. It always works, their faces will shine up and sometimes, you may just find them posing up better for you.

PicBackMan does exactly what it's supposed to. It's quick and efficient. It runs unobtrusively in the background and has done an excellent job of uploading more than 300GB of photos to 2 different services. After having lost a lot of personal memories to a hard drive crash, it's nice to know that my photos are safe in 2 different places.

LOVE this program! Works better than ANY other program out there that I have found to upload thousands of pictures WITH SUB-FOLDERS to SmugMug! Thank you so much for what you do! :) #happycustomer

I pointed PicBackMan at a directory structure, and next time I looked - all the photos had uploaded! Pretty cool. I use SmugMug and while I really like it, the process of creating directories in is pretty laborious when you need to make 80+ at a time. This was a breeze. Thank you!
