Try to photograph as many bridesmaids and groomsmen during cocktail hour or throughout the night with their significant others.

Remember these couples are likely spending the most time with you outside of your couple. And these VIPs are just as likely to gush about you to people they know when they get engaged.

Take the time to make sure they also get a beautiful portrait with the person they are with. Your couple will also love these photos, and there is a good chance they end up in an album or that they order these as a print.
