Hey, readers! Are you ready to talk about something that doesn't get enough love in wedding photography? That's right, I'm talking about groom photos! As a wedding photographer, I've noticed that a lot of people tend to focus more on the bride and overlook the groom. Unfortunately, I was in the same group of people who had done that. But guess what? Grooms are awesome too, and they deserve to have their special moments captured on camera. So, let's dive into this topic and answer some burning questions that you may have about groom photos.




Getting Ready Photos

First things first, do grooms take getting ready photos? You bet they do! Getting ready photos are a great way to capture candid and emotional moments before the wedding ceremony. Plus, it's a great opportunity for the groom to bond with his groomsmen and family members. So, don't forget to snap some shots of the groom getting dressed, doing his hair, tying his shoes, and maybe even sharing a toast with his crew.

Photographing the Groom


Now, how do you photograph a groom? Well, there's no one-size-fits-all answer to this question. It all depends on the location, theme, and personality of the groom. But, in general, you want to make the groom feel comfortable and confident in front of the camera. Give him some direction on where to stand or how to pose, but also let him be himself and show off his unique style.

Styling and Attire for Grooms

Speaking of style, how can grooms look their best on their wedding day? This is a great question, my friends. Grooms can rock any colour they want, but some popular choices are navy, grey, black, and even burgundy or green. It all depends on the season, the venue, and the bride's dress. And don't forget the accessories! A nice watch, cufflinks, or pocket square can really make the groom stand out.

What is a first look?

Alright, let's talk about the lovebirds. What is a first look with the groom? This is when the bride and groom see each other before the wedding ceremony, usually in a private moment. It's a great opportunity for them to share their emotions and take some stunning photos together. And, of course, don't forget to take some solo shots of the groom looking all dapper and handsome.
