Upon my return from the WPPI convention I got to thinking about the state of wedding photography. I sat in on much of the competition and was struck by how few photographs there were of family groups. Especially evident in album competition, I wonder, where are all of the people? There are photos a plenty of the bride and groom running down the street, jumping in the air, and sitting in every café known to man... Not to mention at least fifty photos of headless members, body parts and inanimate objects. It seems as though we've become afraid of photographing people looking in the camera.
