Don’t let the precious moments disappear. Even though they will be with you in your heart, why not make sure to capture the most beautiful and romantic situations of your wedding day? After all, this is going to be one of the most important days of your life. Not to mention that the actual photos will help you relive those loving memories. Of course, you can have your friends snap as many photos as they want. Still, when it comes to professional photography that will truly capture the setting and the feeling of it all, definitely ask for the following shots.
Walking down the aisle
There are just so many different perspectives and ideas when it comes to this particular photo. If you want to capture the iconic moments of your wedding ceremony, walking down the aisle should definitely be the first shot. Use the ceremony hall as inspiration for your perfect picture as well. Recently, photos that capture the moment the bride approaches the groom, with her back turned to the camera, have been extremely popular.
Bride and groom’s first look
Is there anything more special than this single moment during the whole wedding ceremony? Of course, if the photographer manages to capture the look on the groom’s face as the bride walks down the aisle, that’s perfect! But to focus the shot on the couples’ faces as they stand next to and look at each other with all the love they hold in their hearts is truly something worth preserving in time.
Personal, unique moments
Depending on the wedding theme and the whole ambient of the wedding ceremony hall, as well as different traditions, there will always be something interesting and unique to capture. These can be your bright smiles, special flower girl moments and even quirky details that the excitement make even more obvious. Let your photographer know to be on the lookout for these, once-in-a-lifetime, uniquely stunning shots.
Your party people
Of course, you can’t forget about people who love and support you and want to share the happiest moment of your life with you. Capturing the joy on their faces is definitely a special memento since you’ll be able to see their love for many years to come. Not to mention that you’ll also get a valuable reference and ideas for your next celebration, especially for when you’ll be the one of the party people.
Exchanging the rings
This iconic bride and groom portrait deserves more than one shot. After all, there’s just so much to capture. The moment you place the rings on each other’s hands, the two of you holding hands with rings on them, the beauty of the rings in focus, etc. This is truly a moment to remember. Therefore, don’t be shy to flaunt your rings so that they can shine beautifully on the photos as well.
The first kiss
The big finale of the wedding ceremony is undoubtedly the first kiss that the bride and groom will share as a married couple. There are many unique poses that you can strike for this photo. Of course, you can stick to the traditional one, in front of the aisle, but you can also make things a lot more special by having everyone around you clapping and laughing, and flower petals thrown in the air as you share the kiss.
Remember, this is your wedding day and you have the right to organize it the way you want. Naturally, something as spectacular and important as this deserves to stay with you forever. As Nicholas Boyd Crutchley said, “If a picture paints a thousand words, then let a picture inspire a thousand words.”
