When it comes to planning your wedding day photography timeline don’t forget to include my top 5 wedding day photo moments not to be miss. Organizing your photography timeline is an important aspect to keeping your wedding day flowing. There are many events that can take place throughout your wedding day, but I have curated a list of just 5 moments that are meaningful and intentional.
Many brides love this time as it showcases lots of candid and emotional moments. Whether or not you want to have your makeup and hair photos captured or you and your bridesmaid’s popping champagne, the moments not to miss are those spent with your mom as she zips up your dress and places the veil atop your head. These are some of the most intentional moments I have the honor of capturing before the day truly begins and you get to spend time with your mom taking it all in.
I encounter a few different ways that brides decide to have a first look. You can have one with the groom, which is most traditional or consider having one with your parents, your dad and brother or with your kids. Whether or not you choose to have a first look is entirely up to you, but I truly feel like to helps with the flow of your day. First looks with the groom can lend in getting even more couples portraits in as to not disrupt time spend with all your guests.
The ceremony is the biggest part of your wedding day you don’t want to not have photos of. Capturing the groom and bride’s reactions, the guests, the placing of the rings and of course the iconic kiss as husband and wife. If you decide to say vows to each other during the ceremony, this will lend in emotional photos that you’ll want to see again and again. Other aspects of your ceremony could be special speeches from loved ones, a meaningful song played or a traditional ceremonial event for the two of you.
Family portraits are another important photo moment not to miss on your wedding day. If you decide to not have the formal portraits before the ceremony we can capture some fun family moments during the reception. Not every bride and groom are interested in formal photos, and that’s ok. As long as we get photos that you can share with family is what matters most.
Candid photography happens mostly during cocktail hour and the reception. These photos are fun, carefree and show the spirit of the bride, groom and all their guests.
Your wedding day comes and goes in a flash and I want you to be able to enjoy every moment of it without having to be taking away for formal photos that may not feel like you! Be sure to take a note of this to ask your photographer and make sure that these moments are within your timeline for your wedding day!
