Creative Group Portraits at Weddings

People come from near and far to celebrate weddings and top photographers capture those friends and family members in creative group portraits that show off their connection to the couple. Without an experienced photographer on board, your bridal party and family photos can take a lot of time away from the big day and still look boring. Not with our members behind the camera! They know that great wedding group shots with commonplace posing and forced smiles will never be as interesting or valuable as portraits that are artistically creative. To give you an idea of what’s possible at your wedding, we’ve chosen 10 extraordinary shots from our galleries.
