One of the areas I have been experimenting in is groupings. It’s easy and fast to line everybody up in a straight line; and when I am short on time, that’s exactly what I will do. However, if I get some time, I like to play with different arrangements. Groupings have their own language. By the way you place people in the group – front to back, side to side, top to bottom – makes a statement. It makes a statement about how that person relates to the group and each person’s role in the group. You look at the image on the left, and you can tell immediately who the groom and the best man are just by how they are positioned.
