You’ve picked out your dress, booked the perfect venue and now it’s time to start thinking about wedding photography. Capturing the essential moments of your special day is so important so you can look back on them with fond memories in years to come. As a bride or groom, you’ll want to be sure that your photographer captures all the small details that make your wedding unique as well as those timeless moments shared between you and your friends and family. Let’s take a look at some of the must-have shots for any couple.
The Details: From the bouquet to the bridesmaids’ dresses, capturing all of these little details will make up an important part of your wedding album. Your photographer should take pictures of items like centerpieces, table settings, cake decorations and anything else that adds the perfect touch to your special day. Be sure to communicate any extra ideas for shots directly with your photographer beforehand so they can be ready when it comes time!
The First Dance: When it comes time for the first dance, no photos are more special than those of you and your partner sharing a romantic moment together on the dance floor. If possible, have a secondary shooter or videographer positioned nearby so they can capture both wide angle shots as well as close-up footage of this beautiful moment between you both!
The Exit: The grand exit is always one of our favorite moments during a wedding reception! Whether it’s sparklers at night or balloons during the day, having photos taken while everyone cheers you on makes for an unforgettable memory. Ask your photographer ahead of time if there are any specific angles or shots in particular that they need for optimal coverage during this momentous occasion!
The Guests: Of course, half (or more!) of what makes a wedding such a great event are all its wonderful guests! Make sure you get plenty of group shots with family and friends so everyone can remember how much fun was had by all attendees alike!
With thoughtful planning ahead and knowing what must-have shots to look out for during your big day, you can be sure that no detail will be left unnoticed! Wedding photography is an art form; when done right couples will forever have lovely memories captured through beautiful images—all these years later—to look back upon with joyous nostalgia. Don’t forget to ask lots of questions when meeting potential photographers so they know exactly what’s most important to you before taking their first shot!
