Reply Sergio MH says: January 10, 2020 at 7:59 pm Thank you very much for the inspiration! Question: how many photos do you end up giving to the couple in a wedding like this?

Reply Kelian De Valck says: January 11, 2020 at 10:03 am Why are you always cropping the feet ? :S Reply Lucio Busa Photography says: January 11, 2020 at 10:03 am Great work Reply Lambang Kumara says: January 11, 2020 at 11:14 am In the US/EU the wedding looks amazing and much more easier to do pose with the bride/groom.and soooo much spare times to do so. meanwhile in my country, if the reception at 11AM.the ceremony shold be at 7-8AMwe "photographers" need to standby at 5-6AM.bride already do the makeup at 3/4AM, groom usually get ready at 6AM.and usually they don't stay at the same place (need to drive to get to the groom) We only got like 5 minutes or maybe got no time to do pose before the ceremony.After the ceremony is done, bride and groom need to go to make up room ASAP. We only got 15 minutes to do pose, and find a good spot for photos. Bride and groom change their clothes around 10AM and touch up till 11AM.Still got no time to do proper pose with new dress & tux. In my country, reception is all about guest. So, in reception there's barely anything interesting, just group photos till 2AM.After the reception, we want to do pose with bride and groom? lucky if they're still have some energy. They STAND UP from 11AM till 2AM just to shake hands with the guests and take group photos. Maybe in the next project i'll make this kind of videos, so we can learn how much different the wedding culture in every country🤔 Reply photom2 says: January 11, 2020 at 12:43 pm John, hope you don't mind me making a suggestion. @10:45 when taking a flat group, bring the outer men in to make a very slight semicircle. If you look you at the feet, the feet will be slightly semicircle and just makes a more pleasing image. Reply Omar Gonzalez Photography says: January 11, 2020 at 1:01 pm Dude! Great stuff! Reply BloM says: January 11, 2020 at 6:30 pm Awesome content! 👌 Would love to watch videos about posing and Light painting ☺️ Reply tuonyy says: January 11, 2020 at 6:35 pm Love it!

Reply Jasperr says: January 11, 2020 at 8:56 pm The Taku beat vinyl on the background seals the deal! I'm subscribed!

Reply Denis Khotkin says: January 12, 2020 at 10:48 pm Hey John! Great video! I thoroughly enjoyed it. Just out of interest, which flash do you use with your Fuji, and also what is this diffuser you have on top of it? I have a job coming up soon and I am suspecting a dark environment so really need to invest into a good flash. Thank you in advance!
