Wedding Day Photography (Don't Miss) Details!

 

You put so much thought and effort into the details of your wedding day. Make sure that they are captured! These are 14 details we think are a MUST when it comes to your wedding day shot list.

1. The Invite

All of your wedding day details preserved on a pretty piece of paper. You know what they say: "Take a picture, it'll last longer."

3. The Gown

Before you put it on. We always like to stress that some of the best photos of your gown happen when it's on the hanger. Same goes for bridesmaid dresses!

4. The Finishing Touch

The final button on your gown or slipping your heels on. The finishing touch is a valuable candid moment as well as the best time to capture the small details.

5. Nails

Nail art is the coolest. But we all know too well that it does not last forever. A casual hand-on-the-hip pose allows your photographer to capture your perfectly polished nails and gown details all in one.

6. The Space

Photos of your ceremony and reception space before the day begins give the best perspective for remembering details. Let your photographer know that these photos are important to you, especially if you're the type of couple who spent a lot of time planning the details.

7. Tablescapes

The sweetheart table is most important and guest tables are the heart of it all! Be sure to have photos captured of every detail that comes together at your table settings.

9. Signage

Here's where all of that hard work on personalization comes into play. Signs and place cards tell the story of your wedding so well. We've seen SO many cool signs over the years, and they're the most inspiring of all!

10. Your Guests

Detail could be too insignificant of a word, because without your guests, there wouldn't be a wedding! Still, it's important to consider the type of shots you want captured of your guests: posed or candid.

Many couples give gifts to their family and bridal party members. Don't let these go undocumented. Guest favors come into play here, too.

14. The Views

Your wedding day "moves pretty fast. If you don't stop and look around once in awhile, you could miss it." Ferris Bueller knew what he was talking about. Capture that view.
