Tips on the perfect wedding photos
Planning your wedding photography can be a stressful and nerve-wracking experience. It’s one more thing on your checklist before getting married. You’re worried about the location, shoes, dresses, hair, make-up, getting photographs taken from your “good-side” and so much more. That’s why we’ve compiled a list of some photography ideas that you might want to include in your wedding album and reminisce the journey to spending an eternity with your partner:
The pre-wedding shoot: The pre-wedding shoot should ideally take place a couple of months before the wedding. This allows the photographer and the couple to get to know each other more intimately vis-à-vis having a purely professional relationship. The couple will feel more at ease and relaxed when they’re being photographed; allowing them to be the best version of themselves while in their wedding attire. During the pre-wedding shoot, the photographer will also be able to determine the most flattering angles and which lighting techniques to use and these can also be used on the day of your wedding. The photographers and videographers are there to help you get rid of your photography insecurities and make your look your best.
Wedding Details: Weddings come to life with all visual details that go into them. A lot of time is invested into making the wedding into a stunning and alluring one. It would be a crime not to preserve a memento of these wedding details. The flowing gown, sheer veil, elegant shoes, freshly cut bouquet, neatly pressed suit, the venue adorned with glowing lights and aromatic flowers deserve their own special place in your wedding album.
First Look with the Dad: Brides likes to share that first moment with their future husbands but you can also do a first look with your dad. The bond between a father and his daughter can be so strong, and to capture it clearly on film is absolutely heartwarming. Giving away his daughter can be a particularly emotional moment for the father of the bride. After all, he was the first man in your life. It’s not until that moment he sees you in your wedding dress that he realizes that his little girl is all grown up and is ready to start a new chapter in her life.
Bridesmaids and Groomsmen: Best friends, sisters, brothers, your childhood friends are people from all walks of your life! And they will be standing next to you, supporting you as you take the next step in your life. The photos of your bridal party will be one of the most treasured moments of your wedding. You can use a fun and interactive photo booth for your wedding. Guests will be able to print the photographs they liked the most and take it home as a remembrance of your special day.
And don’t forget to be natural, your wedding photographs should reveal your personality, essence and unbridled joy of spending the rest of your life with your soulmate.
