The wedding party photos are always an important part of a typical San Francisco Bay Area photography shoot. Over the years we have found that some cultures value the wedding party images more than others. It seems that in America, the wedding party images are important, but not something that is overdone. We often just do the wedding party in a number of different fun poses and then we move on to the bride and groom. However, with some cultures, the wedding party sticks with the bride and groom throughout the entire wedding shoot and continually make it into future photos. The wedding party shot above was from one of those types of cultures that value the friends to the extent that they are involved in many of the shots during formal wedding shoot.
