Being photographed and feeling comfortable in front of the camera, for most feels like one of thee least favourite things to do! So first piece of advice, do a pre-wedding shoot…..
1) you get more gorgeous photos of you and your partner,
2) it gives you both practice, it gives you time with your photographer to get comfortable with them and each other in front of the camera!
NOW – Shot list! This is a really important thing to get nailed, some couples just say we want candid and no formal shots – fine!!!! But some formal shots should still make the cut! We promise formal shots can still be candid and not feel forced, but they are also a memory for so many involved including family and friends aswell as the two of you!
So we have put together a few musts – but we also recommend searching pinterest and pinning down some example shots you love, and then sitting with your photographer, pre wedding shoot, and making a list together! Your photographer will also be able to help, so do lean on them!
Close up detail shots of invites, perfume, jewellery etc etc
Getting ready shots
First look shots, with your mum, dad, sister, bridesmaids!
Bride & Bridesmaids
Bride and her MOH
Groom and Groomsmen
Groom and Bestmen/Man
Whole family shots
Entering/Exiting the church
First look at the venue shots
First moments together as a married couple
Guests outside ceremony area
Top table shots
Table decor (taken before guests are seated)
Entering as Mr & Mrs/Mrs & Mrs
Evening shots (couple leave on their own)
Evening celebrations – Sparklers, Fireworks etc
Any other suppliers/entertainment you have get those photographed
The list could go on! But go through each element and aspect of your day, work with each other and your photographer, and capture those moments that will become the memories that live on forever!
We hope this helps!! We can’t wait to see your post wedding photos, please tag us and submit to our website aswell to feature!
Lots of Love
