Everything you’ve heard is true: Your wedding day comes and goes so quickly. That’s why preparation is key. Once you nail down your wedding photographer it’s time to start thinking about your shot list. While your photographer will guide you on the moments they plan on capturing, it’s important to know exactly what you want too. After all, you’ll want to keep these memories intact with the perfect photo album. You will remember your wedding day for the rest of your life, but it’s often the smallest and unexpected details that will make your day most memorable.
Working with your wedding photographer to come up with some great wedding photo ideas is a lot of fun, but also a lot of work. But not to worry, we’ve put together some wedding ideas to discuss with your wedding photographer.
As a rule, wedding photographers and cameramen begin their work about three hours before the wedding ceremony: in fact, it will be necessary to capture the moments of waiting for both spouses, the anxiety, emotions, the preparations of the bride, surrounded by her mother and from dearest friends. These are in fact the right moments to make the bride’s close-ups, since the makeup is perfect at the beginning of the day.
Wedding is a day so full of emotions, unique and interesting moments that dozens of photographers and thousands of shots would not be enough to capture such an important event.
Whatever the style and approach you have chosen for your photo shoot, there are some essential photos, which must necessarily be included in the wedding photo album.
Let’s see what they are:
Photos at home of the bride during the preparations.
Photo of the arrival of the bride outside the church.
Photo of the entrance to the church of the bride with her father.
Photo of the exchange of wedding rings.
Photo of the rice toss on leaving the church.
Photo of the kiss of the newlyweds.
Photo of the decoration of the wedding location.
Photo of the wedding buffet.
Photo of the first dance of the newlyweds.
Photo of the launch of the bouquet.
Photo of the cake cut.
But apart from these moments, absolutely essential, your wedding photos cannot miss the funny shoots, group photos with friends and relatives, the candid shots of the guests who get excited and have fun, but more than anything else, they cannot miss the romantic photos who portray both of you, finally husband and wife, in your splendor of the big day.
Just remember that any wedding photographer will give you suggestions and propose various ideas or poses, but it’s also important to know what you want.
