We recently shot a wedding shower for a client as a substitute for the engagement photo session that was included in the wedding package they chose. Since they already had engagement photos they chose to have us shoot the shower instead.
While getting set up and ready for the session we noticed that the shower began to take on the feeling of a family get together. It was nice to watch as people seemed to see each other for what looked to be for the first time in a while.
The catching up and posing with each other was a fun for participants and photographers alike. The relaxed atmosphere probably was a welcome reprieve fro the hectic wedding planning of all involved.
If you have not thought about photos at your shower you might want to reconsider. What a great way for everyone to get together in a family atmosphere and take a step back from the upcoming wedding day activities.
