Over vs. Under Communication

With groups, you always want to work on filling the silent moments. Here are some tips we have on communicating with your clients during the few minutes you have with them:

  • Get to know them
  • Give them genuine praise
  • Talk about the wedding day
  • Explain the vision of the shot
  • Explain lighting, posing, and other adjustments you are making


You want to over communicate to make sure they understand what you are doing and why you are doing it. Just talking to them and not working with them doesn’t give them as much purpose and makes them feel like they are just subjects being placed into positions rather than components of a larger piece of art.
