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.
