When you find your photographer it is a great idea to provide him with a list of all the important photos you would like to have in your wedding album. You don’t want to miss any significant moments, so it is best to make a detailed plan beforehand.
The first set of photos is usually made while the bride is getting ready with her bridesmaids. It is a fantastic opportunity for the mini fashion shoot, but it is also important to have portraits of bride with her maid of honour, bridesmaids and flower girls, as well as her father who will escort her to the ceremony venue. Simultaneously, a second photographer can take photos of the groom and his attendants before the ceremony.
You should also make the list of all the crucial moments at the ceremony including bride and father walking down the aisle, exchange of vows, ring ceremony, the kiss and the newlyweds leaving the church while guests are throwing confetti and flower petals on them.
At the reception venue, your photographer should picture all the lovely decorations, wedding cake, buffet table and presents for guests, but also capture every emotional moment from giving toasts to bride and groom leaving the party in their wedding car. Your wedding photo album should also include all important portraits of bride and groom, and their family and friends.
