Must-have wedding photos to take on your big day

Your wedding album is the best way to look back on your special day. Make sure to have it captured in style with an expert wedding photographer

While you probably want most of your photos to have that beautifully candid effect, it’s important to sit down with your photographer and plan out a few must-have wedding photos.

Here are some moments you won’t want to miss:

The process of getting ready

The day is finally here! Remember to take a moment and have your photographer capture you enjoying a cuppa with your besties, or all of you listening to your mom talking about old romantic stories as you get ready for the special day. Sweet shots of you staring in the mirror, or your maid of honour zipping your dress up will remind you of your excitement.

Your wedding shoes are often hidden beneath the long dress, not affording them the attention they deserve. Make sure to get a snap of your shoes in all their glory, before you kick them off to dance the night away.

The invitations

These guys usually take months of planning, yet they’re sometimes easily forgotten about. Take a snap for posterity’s sake so that you can always remember the details of your big day, from the time it started to the dress code.

Details, details, details

It’s easy to get caught up in taking general pictures of the bridal couple and the reception, but make sure to take a moment to hone in on the finer details. The bouquet and groom’s boutonnière play a pivotal role in your wedding attire. Also consider taking close up shots of your ring, the food, and decor so you won’t forget a thing.

Everything happens so quickly during your wedding. Have images taken of the entire space so you can go back and appreciate what you and your partner planned together and see things from a different angle.
