Wedding day details are one of the most important and can be one of the most overlooked portions of the day. When thinking about wedding photography, everybody always includes the couples, ceremony, reception, etc. but those small details really do bring the entire event together. In this blog post I’ll be sharing ways how you, the bride, can help create a timeline that will give your photographer plenty of time to capture those beautiful details that I guarantee you’ll want to remember & 3 helpful tips!
What Are The Details?
Now let’s talk. When I say “details” what comes to your mind? Of course the dress, rings, and flowers but there are soooo many more amazing aspects to include in this list! A list of important details I aim to capture during a wedding day include (but are not limited to):
Rings (all 3!)
Bouquet & Bout
Jewelry ~ earrings/necklace/etc.
“Something Borrowed”/”Something Blue”
These are the details that I photograph for the first 1 – 1.5 hour as soon as I arrive on wedding day. It’s a great way for me to personally get those creative vibes flowing! These details really set the stage for how the whole day is
The wedding day is officially here and imagine you’re getting hair and makeup done, sipping on champagne, enjoying time with your bridesmaids. Ladies trust me – this is not the time you want to be worried about looking for all these important details. Let me help you out – if possible, it would be soooo helpful to your photographer if all these little details could be gathered beforehand so that when I get there we hug, say hello, remind you how beautifulllll you’re looking and get right to work on capturing all the goodies 😉
Now y’all, I know how stressful those days leading up to the wedding day can be. So many things to remember, pack for wedding day and maybe even the honeymoon, get all your ducks in a row. I get it! Let me help!! Here are my top 3 tips to help alleviate any wedding day stress that can come from details:
1.Extra Elements – depending on what the theme of your wedding is, there might be extra elements that would help with photographing the day. If it’s a beachy wedding, some beautiful shells to incorporate would be nice. A rustic themed wedding would be nice to include a little burlap. These elements really help to bring the photos together and look amazinggg included in the gallery!
2. Keep All Three Rings – The day of the wedding it’s best to keep all three rings together before the ceremony. This way the photographer can get awesome photos of the set together beforehand. Most people will suggest handing them over to the best man right away however, the best time to do this is during bridal party portraits.
3. Bring The Bouquet – Be sure to have the bouquet and bouts delivered to the bride before the first look so that she can have her bouquet for portraits.
