Photographing Groomsmen Gift Exchange

A little bit of staging can go a long way, and candids can still be manifested from a little bit of artistic direction. Make sure that everyone is visible in your shots, more often than not, the photographer is focused on tight shots of reactions but fail to see that they could still gather those reactions with a wide angle. Always get a variety of shots and check focus as you move through the scene.
