Essential photos for your wedding

Posted on April 8, 2016 by Admin under Wedding Photography, weddings

Here is an essential shortlist that every professional photographer should have to hand in order to make sure that those special moments of your wedding are well documented.

Pre-Ceremony photos

The Details

Every item chosen for the wedding carries significance worth photographing. Getting standalone shots of the rings, shoes, invitations, bouquets and the wedding dress before the ceremony, should be the first thing any photographer does.

Bride Preparation

Lots of precious moments from a wedding day begin even before anyone walks down the aisle.  For brides, this means shots of their hair & make-up being done, preparation candid’s with them and their bridesmaids/mother and finishing touches on the wedding dress, such as placement of the veil.

Ceremony photos

Bride & Bridal Party Ceremony Entrance

The ceremony is the main event so expect any photographer’s camera shutter to go into overdrive during this time. A photographer should capture all of the bridal party as they enter the room – from the flower girl, to the bride & father’s climactic entrance. But it’s not just about the bridal party, any good photographer will capture the emotions of the family/guests as it happens too. It is also important to have the priceless reaction of the groom as the bride slowly saunters towards the altar.

Ring & Vow exchange

Every wedded couple wants to re-live the moment they exchanged their heartfelt (and occasionally emotional) vows and official wedding rings. Most photographers will aim to get close-up shots of the ring exchange and images of each person speaking and listening to the other… especially the laughs, tears and other candid expressions shared between the bride and groom.

The Kiss

That moment following the words “you may kiss the bride” is the one moment any photographer cannot miss (or forget to include in the final edit of images). Here’s a major tip to ensure the perfect photograph: make the kiss long, preferably 5 seconds or more, to give the photographer enough time to snap a good, focused shot.

No quick pecking !

Bride & Groom Walking Down the Aisle

Don’t be alarmed if you see the wedding photographer briskly dash to the other end of the aisle after “The Kiss”; he or she is preparing to document the jubilation of the wedding party and the bride and groom as everyone begins exiting the ceremony. This is usually a time when you can capture them grinning ear-to-ear as newlyweds, and is a prime time for that ‘hero shot’ of happiness from the day.

Portrait Photos (usually after the ceremony)

Bride and Groom Portraits (together and individual)

Weddings are an intricate, time-sensitive dance, and the photographer must be involved with choreographing the steps. In order to prevent any scheduling headaches, make sure you speak with the photographer and wedding planner to allot a flexible timeframe for bride & groom portraits, which is traditionally done soon after the ceremony .

Family Portraits

Family portraits can be the most frustrating of the must-capture shots during a wedding as it can be tough to quickly corral and organize both sides of the family, especially for a photographer who doesn’t know everyone by face and name. Mitigate these headaches by providing the photographer – and yourself – with a detailed list of who is in which photograph (for example: bride’s family, groom’s parents, etc.) and assigning a best-man or usher to assist the photographer in rounding everyone up.

Let all family members know well in advance that they must meet at a designated spot for family photos when it is their time

Reception photos

Reception Details (decorated tables, cake) 

Like the pre-ceremony details, any good wedding photographer should pay close attention to the room decor during the reception too. Photographs of the entire room/venue, wedding cake and table details (including any special centrepieces) are a must.

First Dance

As one of the most important moments of the day, the first dance is often memorable and tearful. A good photographer will know ahead of time where they plan on doing the dance, and at what time – and be ready and waiting to capture the perfect shot. If applicable, the father-daughter and mother-son dances should make it in the final collection too.

It was a great pleasure to meet up with Imogen and Frank for their engagement photo shoot last weekend.  We chose Corporation park in Blackburn for the shoot. The weather was perfect and the shoot was informal and fun. Engagement /pre wedding photo shoots are ideal for getting to know each other and getting used to being in front of the camera.
