Must-Have Wedding Photos
When it comes to wedding photography, many brides would argue that it’s one of the most important aspects of the big day. And we would agree. Today, we have made a list of different photos that are popular and sometimes overlooked.
It helps to give your photographer a list of must-have photos before the big day so that he or she can determine how to make that happen for you. It actually makes the process much smoother for both you and the photographer because you both know what you want photographed.
So, here are a few you might have forgotten about, or you might want to add to your list after reading about them!
1. Three Generations Photo.
If it’s possible to get your grandmother and mom together for a photo, do it. This may be the only time that you all three are dressed to perfection. If your relationship with your grandmother and/or mother is strong, you might want to consider making this photo a priority.
2. Bride and Maid-of-Honor.
This is one you don’t want to miss out on. If your MOH is your best friend, you won’t regret taking a little extra time to make her feel special by adding a few photos of just the two of you to your list. If you have a photo of the two of you from childhood, maybe you should try reenacting it for fun!
3. Prom Reenactment.
Speaking of reenacting a precious moment, you might want to consider this one if you and your groom were high school sweethearts. Do you have a photo from prom that you’d like to redo on your wedding day? Now is your chance!
4. Getting Ready.
You might think that skimping on photos before the ceremony is a good idea, but there are plenty of candid moments to be captured as you get ready. Most brides will focus on them getting ready, and rightfully so. But, if you have the opportunity to see what the groom was doing with his men while they got ready, it will be worth it to also make sure his moments are captured.
5. Your dress and shoes by themselves.
Chances are, you’ll never wear these items again. Make sure that you photograph what they looked like on the rack as well as what they looked like on!
6. Bride and the Flower Girl.
If you’re close with your flower girl, this one is a must. Find a cute way to incorporate her into your photos and make her feel included. Having her picture taken with you could be the highlight of her time as your flower girl. Make sure you give her that special moment while the two of you are dressed to perfection.
7. Alone shots with your Groom.
Many brides regret not having enough photos of just her and her man. Take the time to make sure precious moments between the two of you are photographed – even if that means your guests have to wait an extra 15 minutes. It’ll be worth it in the long run.
