  • First you should ask if your groom wants to be the one walked up to or if you the bride wants to walk up to your groom.

Sometimes the best pictures are when you are facing each other because if your groom turns the wrong way your photographer could miss his expression. Also, if you are facing each other you get more time to let it all sink in.
