Your special day has arrived! I am sure that you pictured this day over and over again. Every photographer has their own list of important moments to capture, but it's still a good idea to create your own, particularly if there are key elements or people you want to get a shot of. Tip! Every wedding is unique; you should focalize on what makes your wedding special.
Getting ready. Those precious, nervous, excited pre-wedding moments are so special. Having wedding photos of both sides of the wedding party captured while getting ready is definitely important to you.
Group photos. Avoid the usuals! There are many fun ideas and stunning captures to look for. Your photographer knows the way to create timeless moments with your beloved ones.
Arriving at the ceremony. The moment when all the nerves and joy seem to come together - this is an essential part of the day to document. It's also a moment your other half doesn't get to see, so capture it on camera to make sure they can see just how excited you were! After this point you could possibly break into excited tears too - so it's a good time to have a photo take.
The venue. Often most of the work in planning your wedding culminates in what your venue looks like - the tables, place settings, florals, all of you ideas end up here for guests to enjoy. Your photographer will usually sneak into your venue to capture an amazing shot of the setup before guests see it (and quite frankly mess it up by having fun) but make sure that you've communicated this with them - especially if the details are really important to you.
First dance. When your setting is as magical as this - it's essential to capture your first dance. Now I totally appreciate that for a lot of people, having to do a first dance is hugely stressful, let alone has it photographed. But I promise you, by that point in the day; you'll be having too much fun to even care. You'll be so full of joy that you'll want to dance your socks off all night. And your first dance can always include the wedding party and your guests too! It doesn't have to be just the two of you on the dance floor.
Keep in mind that it’s your day! Feel free to discuss with your photographer anything you are thinking about for your wedding day. I am sure that your photographer is more than willing to help you accomplish whatever you have dreamed of.
