Photography Tips for Your Wedding

Your wedding photos tell an important story. They capture the romance, laughter, and joy shared on your wedding day. Work in sync with your photographer to create the perfect timeline for your album by following these easy tips.

Commination is key.
Before your wedding day, meet with your photographer to clearly communicate your vision. Do you imagine photos full of guests celebrating on the dance floor with you? Would you rather focus on the romance and the sweet moments shared with your new hubby? Perhaps you prefer a mix of both. Some brides choose candid shots over the formally staged moments. Wherever your preferences lie, be clear in your communication. It helps when all parties are on the same page.

Focus on the big moments.
While it is important to capture small moments throughout the day (like the ten-year-old romance that bloomed on the dance floor) let your photo album highlight the big events. Determine the top four or five elements where you want your photographer to shift focus. It could be saying your vows, cutting the cake, the first dance, throwing the bouquet, or the heart-felt toast before dinner. Whatever moments you choose, assign a feature page in your album to showcase these actions. Forming a fluid story is easier to follow than a book of scattered photos.

Mix it up.
Wherever your preferences lie, be sure to include a little variety. Even if you prefer the candid shots, do not miss the opportunity to incorporate a formal family picture while everyone is together.  Your photographer is a professional with the knowledge and experience to catch the irreplaceable moments of your day. Trust their creative abilities. You will be pleased with an assortment of memories.

Photo Ideas for Fall

Fall is a popular time of year to tie the knot, or just take scenic photos for your upcoming wedding. Now, the summer heat has finally subsided, and nature has created its very own picturesque backdrop. No doubt this is the best time of year to get outdoors and create those fantastic photo memories.

Engagement Ideas

If you and your beau are planning to take engagement photos, this is the best time of year to catch a few lighthearted candid moments. Yes, romantic photos are perfect for the album, but the memories of the two of you playing in nature is sure to spark extra joy. Roll around in the leaves and climb a tree together. Just spend a day having fun and let the photographer do the work. The best photo opportunities happen when you aren’t thinking about the camera.

Save the Date

It makes no difference what time of year you plan to get hitched; Fall is the perfect time of year to create a romantic and sweet Save the Date card. The crisp air gives you an excuse to cozy up together and be romantic. Once you snap the perfect photo, print them onto a save the date card and send them off!

Wedding Memories

If you are getting married during the Fall months, take your wedding party outside for posed pictures. Most photographers allow time before the reception for this to take place. You may want some indoors or at the altar, but if you mix them in with outdoor shots your wedding album will have an amazing mix.
