When photographing reunion events it is very important to catch those moments when a former teacher and student reunite.  That moment will be a great memory for all of those present, as it can help them and many others recall the memories of the educator and student from years ago.  By photographing the moment you are helping connect decades of many memories, as well as preserving the reunited moment for the friends, family and many others who could not attend the moment in person.  Moments like the one pictured here very important to generations of people who recall their own teachers, fellow classmates, and the various memories of school days.

Many remarkable memories and stories are often recalled  from viewing a single photograph.  Those memories can lead to long discussions involving smiles, laughter, and so much more.  Be sure to watch for and photograph those magical moments at reunions and other events where two people are reunited and greeting each other.  The photograph will mean so very much to the people in the photograph and many more people who view it.

Do you always photograph those first greeting moments that happen between people early on at events?  Do you post or print that moment onto your website, Facebook page, or Twitter for others to see and comment on?  Are your photographs capturing that reunited moment clearly with every face very visible and showing the expressions?
