You’re planning your dream wedding, putting creative ideas and exertion into every minor detail. After all, it’s going to be a day to remember for the rest of your life. But years from the wedding, all that remains are the moments, emotions and memories captured by your photographer.
Here are few tips to get perfect photographs on your wedding day:
Schedule Enough Time for Each Section of the Day
It is significant that you create a course of events for your wedding day, something your wedding planner can help you with arranging. There should be an estimated start and end time for hair, makeup, reception setup, and so forth. Within that timeline should include all your photo sessions such as the first look, bridal party photos, and couple’s session.
Plan Enough Time for Hair & Make-up
Delays with hair and makeup can set the whole day behind. Plan to finish the process well ahead of schedule, too often do we see brides rushing because of unexpected delays. Many great hair and makeup artists will create a schedule to follow during wedding preparations. Your creative team will typically ask for one hour in order to document final touch-ups, detail shots, and candid moments with your closest friends and family.
Capture the beauty of the bride’s dress
Make sure to get photos that flaunt the details of the dress. This is no doubt the most vital dress the bride has ever worn, and she’ll want those details archived. Ask the bride what’s her favorite part of the dress, and make sure you feature it. Get shots from behind, so you can see the intricate buttons. Find ways to showcase the lace, or bows, or any other unique details. Pay attention to what shoes she is wearing, and if she might like them featured in a photo. If she has a beautiful Mehendi, get photos that show those off too.
Capture the groom’s look
It used to be a strict tradition that the groom could never see the bride before the wedding. Some people still want to follow that traditional rule, but many are setting it aside and getting formal before the wedding instead of just bridal portraits. I love adding a groom into the photos because you can get an added level of emotion to the session. The photos become more than just a girl in a gorgeous dress; they become a record of the love and excitement that surrounds that time right before tying the knot. You can also get great “first look” shots of the groom’s face the first time he sees his beautiful bride in her dress.
Hire Photography and Videography from the same company
Both Bride and Groom should choose a photographer and videographer from the same studio for a better choice for many reasons:
- The Shared Incentives and Accountability
- Better Communication, Workflow & Positioning
- The Common Shared Vision and Style
- Fewer Contracts & Admin for a combined Photography and Videography Package
- Wedding Photography and Videography Package Discounts
Most of all, have fun with the session and enjoy getting those perfect captures for the married couple to treasure always.
