King’s Chapel Boston weddings are some of my favorite to photograph. King’s Chapel in Boston is a church that dates back to 1686. Loaded with history that includes a bell that was re-cast by Paul Revere, it was the oldest church I have ever shot a wedding in. King’s Chapel states their photography policy as follows: “in keeping with the solemnity of the marriage ceremony, we would be most appreciative if you would make certain that your photographer and guests understand that there is to be absolutely no flash photography.” Because of this, there were no arms waving mobile phones into the aisle making attempts to get a shot of the bride. Every couple deserves unobstructed photos of the processional, so if you are reading this and are invited to a wedding, your iPhone or blackberry shouldn’t make an appearance in church wedding photos. Different churches have varying photography policies. Some churches require the professional photographer to keep behind the congregation or to not stand in the center aisle even during the processional. It is important to understand the rules of your ceremony site and understand how it may impact your professional wedding photography or guest photography.
If you have cultural or religious traditions, such as those of a Greek wedding shown below, please let me know.
