You’ll find that a majority of your budget is centered on the details of your wedding. For example, catering, favors and entertainment. As so much of the emphasis gets put on details like this, sometimes the wedding photography meant to capture these memories gets put on the back burner. Because after your wedding, all you are left with (besides your memories) are your photos, it’s important to consider your wedding photography options carefully. Carrie Reagan Photography is sharing must-have wedding photos + how to ensure they are captured!
Must-Have Wedding Photos
- Slipping on your wedding dress: Your wedding dress is one of the biggest decisions you will make in preparation for your wedding. And it will be one of the most memorable aspects of your wedding. Showcase your beautiful gown by getting a shot of your dress on a hanger somewhere pretty. And also the moment your mom and bridesmaids see you for the first time in your wedding dress!
- First look: Are seeing your groom for the first time during a private moment before the wedding ceremony? Or are you opting for the more traditional option of waiting until you walk down the aisle? The first time you and your groom see each other is a must-have wedding shot as it really captures the raw emotions of the day. A second shooter comes in handy! One photographer will be able to focus on the bride and the other on the groom.
- Exchanging vows: Your promise and commitment to one another is really what the day is all about! You’ll want to remember these moments for a lifetime. Whether your vows are funny, sweet or traditional, whether you’re captured laughing or crying.
- The kiss: This one is a given and a guest favorite to capture. You might want to consider having an unplugged ceremony. This ensures your photographer is able to get the perfect shot without dodging guests and their camera phones.
More Wedding Photography Tips
Give your photographer a must-have list of images you want captured. Also, consider sharing your Pinterest wedding board of photos that you would like to recreate with your photographer. But also keep in mind that it’s often the raw, unposed moments that happen organically that make for the best and most loved wedding photos!
Having a second shooter is an important consideration when planning your wedding. Most photographers will recommend budgeting for two photographers! One photographer can adequately cover your day. But, having a second shooter gives you twice the wedding photography coverage to capture more views. Plus, the ability to get both creative and traditional shots from your day.
