Anyway, your photographer should co-ordinate things for you. I usually brief people on a ‘one, two, three, throw’ count in to get it all sync for maximum effect. It tell them to get in close, get a good handful (of confetti) and throw it up high. Once I’ve got the shot, there’s always people who have some left in hand or who are desperate to stuff it down the groom’s shirt, so I step back from the centre and then capture the rest of the action unposed.
So there you are. Bet you didn’t know that there was so much to consider in throwing flower petals in the air!
