Well, first of all lets define both terms. Direction is easy...I tell the members of the bridal parties where to stand, and what to do to take advantage of the best backround and lighting, as well as the feeling I'm looking for in the photo. I want to cover all the bases by doing the traditional photos in combination with the animated version of the same group. Expression is the key element in knowing when to record the image. My belief is that 10-20 years down my clients will appreciate the union of facial recognition in combination with expressions that bring out the personalities of all the important people in the wedding. After 30+ years of photographing weddings I am aware of the fact that I don't have the luxury of waiting for my bridal party to strike that perfect look. I have to make it happen! One of the key elements in direction is knowing every bridesmaids and groomsmen's first name.
