10 must-have shots on your wedding day!

As a wedding photographer, I’m always looking for the little details and split-seconds of emotion to try and capture on your big day. In addition, there are a few mega-important shots not to miss! Here’s a list of 10 of those important ones I feel are most important!

#1: The details

I’m talking jewellery, flowers, shoes, any accessories you might have. These little details all have a special meaning for brides, and it’s something that I feel is very important to capture.

#2: The dress

Without anyone in it! Again, this means a lot and it’s often something that there has been a lot of deliberation over. It’s important to capture the dress in all it’s glory.  Let it speak for itself.

#3: Getting ready

The anticipation on the morning, that excitement as everyone’s getting ready, it’s a feeling, which is second-to-none. Capturing the preparation of hair and make-up while you’re reflecting on the day ahead makes for some beautiful photographs.

#4: Walking down the aisle

One of the most important parts of the day and a memory that should stay with both of you and whoever walks the bride down the aisle, forever.

#5: The vows

I mean, it’s the whole point of the entire day really, so it’s got to be documented! As you become a married couple, the feeling is amazing and that needs to be remembered forever.

#6: The kiss

The happy couple’s first kiss as husband and wife. It’s got to be recorded!

#7: Group photos

Many of your guests will most likely have travelled a long way to be with you, and you’ll want to remember how happy everyone was to be sharing your special day with you.

#8: Bride and groom portrait

While I’m primarily a documentary-style photographer, it’s so important to make time to get a few posed pictures of the happy couple.

#9: Cake cutting

This is such an exciting part of the day! By this point you’re both nice and relaxed and you’re enjoying the party with your nearest and dearest. It’s such a special moment.

#10: First dance

Whether a traditional slow dance or a choreographed flash-mob, you’re going to want to remember this moment.
