The Kissing Game, revisited

As I’ve mentioned in a few posts over the years, it’s always nice to get the bride and groom loosened up a bit when shooting their portraits. The cameras I carry have large lenses and flashes and it can be a little unnerving to have all that gear pointed at you over and over again 🙂 For this reason I employ a few ‘tricks’ designed to loosen up the newlyweds and make them forget there’s someone taking their picture. My favorite one is the kissing game: the bride has to try and kiss the groom in his ear and the groom has to resist with all his might…until he finally surrenders. Then I switch it up. By the time the game is over, the bride and groom are usually laughing and very relaxed…and I’ve gotten some great images!
