You spend so much time planning your wedding day, including every little detail that makes your day uniquely yours. You want to be sure each detail you have planned is beautifully captured on your wedding day, so you can look back and remember the day to the fullest. I’m here today to share with you some tips to ensure you get the best detail photos possible.
First and foremost, have everything together. It is so much easier for your photographer to get amazing shots of your details if you have them all in one place and ready to go.
During getting ready photos, ladies, have your: shoes, jewelry, invitations, flowers (bouquet and boutonniere, if available), rings, and veil with you and all in the same spot. Have your dress hanging and out of the gown bag so it has time to release any wrinkles the bag may have caused.
Gentlemen, have your: tie, cuff links, shoes, socks (if you’re wearing fun/special ones), watch, and any other personal touches all ready for your photographer.
Before the ceremony, allow your photographer a little time to get details of decorations, unity candle, programs, and floral arrangements before guests begin arriving.
The same goes for the reception. Allow your photographer in before the guests are allowed in, this way they can get some great wide-shots of the whole venue, the centerpieces, favors, toasting glasses, and any other personal touches before guests begin settling in for the evening’s festivities.
You will be so thankful when you get your photos back and see all the beautiful shots of everything you worked so hard planning!
