Wedding Day Photography Tips

Remember Your Special Day with Wedding Photography

You likely have your picture taken all the time, but when you are getting married, those are photos that really matter. They’re pictures that you will hang on your wall and look at for the rest of your life. You’ll pass the wedding album around when you get back from your destination wedding, so everyone can see the beauty of your ceremony. They’re important, and it can feel overwhelming making sure your wedding photography session goes just right. Here are a few things to think about to ensure you get the most out of your wedding photography.  

Consider The Timing

The wedding photographer will know what timing is best for photos in the region you are getting married. There’s often a golden hour of lighting and if you want to catch the ceremony at that time, the photos will be gorgeous. Or, you can choose to just take photos at a particular time, and skip live pictures during the ceremony. You will also want to think about how long the pictures will take. You can generally have a wedding photographer as part of a package for a certain number of hours, and that time should be allocated accordingly so that everyone gets a picture with the bride and groom.

Make A List Of Photos You Want

Take a look at wedding websites to get inspired for certain shots. There may be things you have in mind that you know you want and, of course, the photographer will have other ideas for you as well. Make a list of photos you definitely want and include lists of people and combinations you have to have. It’s important to consider which groups of people you’d like in a singular photo together, as well as poses and stances. This list can help the photographer succeed in getting you everything you want. 

Remember The Background

When you have your wedding photos taken, you want everything to look just right. When you choose your dress, the outfits for others, the flowers, and more, you’ll need to keep the photos in mind. How those things will come together and look both at the ceremony and well into the future is important. The background is something that needs to coordinate with those items as well. Luckily, having a destination wedding means you are going to have a lovely background to work with. Whether you are getting married right on the beach or overlooking the ocean on a cliff, you can’t beat the aesthetics in wedding photography.
