Wedding days are jam-packed with photo-worthy moments and a good wedding photographer will have a clear idea of what they’ll be looking out for. That said, there’s nothing worse than receiving your photo files back to realise there aren’t many shots of certain family members or snippets of the day you would have liked photographed.
We’ve put together a list of must-have photographs which will hopefully help you make sure you get all the perfect photos for your big day.
Invite your photographer to wherever it is you’ll be getting ready to get some shots of you and your favourite people as you brush-up and look your very best!There are lots of unmissable shots to be taken before heading to the venue from getting into your dress/suit, opening letters from your other half (tissues and makeup at the ready!), and popping open a bottle of bubbly with your besties.
The jaw-drop, showstopper moment of the day – you arriving and your guests and other half seeing you after long-awaited anticipation. Take a look at photos online of this moment to get an idea of how you’d like yours to look i.e. do you want your photographer behind you to capture your partner over your shoulder/would you like a close up photo of your partner’s face.
Little peck, thrown over your partner’s knee… as much as we’re all for doing whatever feels natural, it’s definitely worth having an idea of what your other half has in mind for your kiss. Do you want a photo of your guests behind you smiling as you and your partner lock licks? Or maybe you want a more intimate photo of just you and your partner close up.
If you’re lucky enough to have your parents and grandparents, make sure you get a shot with you all in – this is definitely one you’ll cherish forever.
The cake alone, you and your partner with the cake, feeding each other cakes…these are all photos worth getting and also communicating with your photographer.
The dance floor is one of the best places to get shots of friends and family laughing together and letting their hair down. You can let your photographer have free rein here! If you are looking for a dance floor with a difference then why not check out our LED Dance floors?
