Obviously, the is the whole key to great candid wedding photography. I hate to admit it, but sometimes there is some luck involved at truly catching a great moment. The photo above actually occurred in between poses. So we have started to pay more attention to what happens after we make the pose. I have learned to keep looking through the viewfinder for a few moments even after I tell the couple we are done with a particular location or pose. There will be some shoots where nothing exciting is captured, but we still make sure that the couple ends up with candid like images. We do this by putting them into situations where they can interact naturally and have fun with each other. There are many ways to get these types of wedding photography images. San Francisco city hall definitely is a great place to do it! Keeping it fun is what makes all of this work.
A memorable moment, but one that we created for the couple as a starting point
