Over the past 10 years, having a wedding photo montage to display at your wedding reception has become an increasingly popular idea. What is a montage? A montage is a collection of pictures or video clips that show the two of you from infancy to today. But there are a few key elements that can change your montage from a home-movie slide show to a dynamic presentation. A well done montage should give guests a window into your
personalities and your lives. Picture selection: Selecting the right pictures to use in your montage can make all the
difference in the world. If it is only a display of your school pictures from every year since kindergarten, it's going to be kind of dull. Certainly a few of your favourite school pictures ought to be included, but you want to find some of your most colourful and exciting pictures.
Look for photos showing you participating sports, hobbies or perhaps standing in front of a famous landmark, or overlooking a beautiful vista. Look for photos that show that you are an interesting person. Numbers of photos: A good montage will be balanced in the number of photos it shows. Typically it is preferred to have about one third of the photos of the bride, about one third of the groom, and the remaining third of the couple together. It is also nice if the pictures of the bride and groom age together at about the same rate. This allows the videographer to mix the pictures of the couple (one of her, then one of him, etc.) and watch them grow up together. But it can also work well to have a section of all her pictures, all his pictures, and then them together.
