After any formal groups, I take a discrete, candid approach to photos during the apéro, capturing the ambiance of the event and images of your guests enjoying themselves. I am also always available for impromptu groups and portraits. If there are any special events or surprises happening during this time, do let me know and I can help set up for the best reactions.
If you have planned special details for the food and drink of the apéro, we can schedule in some time for me to arrive in advance of the guests to capture this hard work before everyone arrives. This is especially important if you are arranging a procession of cars from the ceremony to the apéro as the photographer is usually at the very back!
Towards the end of the apéro is usually a good time for sunset portraits or, depending on the season, your couple portraits.
