Some people hate detail shots and see them as fillers to an album or slideshow. I have shot quite a few weddings this past summer as a second shooter and I shoot the details because I want people to “feel” how it was to be there. If I show 100 detail pictures of the church, flowers, cake, table settings, dress, corsages, tuxedos, and other surroundings and NOTHING else then I want the observer to tell me that he it felt like to be there even if he never saw a picture of the bride and groom. I think documenting the day in this manner as a second really adds value as the pictures and albums are meant for generations. I wish my wedding photographer had added these shots to our coverage because as the years roll along it would be a gentle reminder of that special day.
