Photographing the Groom | Online Wedding Workshop

Last week, we featured our online educational workshop, Photographing the Bride.

In this article, we’re going to show you our approach to capturing unique and expressive imagery of the groom and his groomsmen.  Photographing the groom is often overlooked in wedding photography, an afterthought with the responsibility delegated to second shooters contracted from Craigslist or Facebook forums.

But this is where we at Lin and Jirsa are different.  We train each and every one of our photographers in a systematic approach to capturing impactful, creative images of the groom, his family and his groomsmen.  The result is an unmatched consistency of quality and creativity.

This workshop, Photographing the Groom, is the exact guide that we use to train our shooters.  It teaches a step-by-step approach to capturing all the vital elements of groom preparation, groom details, group shots with the groomsmen and much more.
