Photographing the groom is always fun. Most guys are camera shy, but once you pose them up just right they think they're James Bond 007. I usually photograph the groom before the bride, since he can usually dress down afterwards then get re-dressed for the wedding. It makes it a lot easier since photographing the bride is much more detailed. While doing the grooms wedding photos it's really important to face him into the light to make him appear bigger and strong in a flattering way. It also helps if they have nice accessories to photograph like a watch, cuff links, bow tie and shiny shoes which this groom had.
This wedding was at the Hilton Fort Lauderdale Beach resort and the ceremony took place in the center of one of their giant penthouse suites. The groom had his own room and made getting all the wedding photos with him easy.
