5 Must-Have Wedding Photos
Capturing your wedding day is incredibly important and these photos will provide you with a lifetime of memories. Making sure you connect with your photographer(s) and have ideas of what you would like captured is essential, but here are some noteworthy photos to add to your list!
1 | Highlight the Groom: Take a few extra shots of the groom. We love this photo showing off this groom’s fashion. The blues, grays, and wine tones in the suit and boutonniere are perfect for a fall wedding! Or try something fun like our featured image above of the groom holding the bride’s bouquet!
2 | Silhouette Photo: Find a beautiful spot at your venue where you will be backlit or have your photographer bring the necessary lighting equipment to create this look. Profile shots work great for these types of photos to show off more details and create an interesting shot. This bride and groom posed by our stained glass window with holiday decor to create a romantic silhouette facing each other.
3 | Ceremony Group Photo: Sometimes it can be a challenge to get a picture of everyone who attends the wedding and getting a large group photo later in the day may be difficult to organize. Take an extra minute after the ceremony to grab a group photo before everyone exits.
4 | Parent’s First Look: We can usually find photos of the couple’s first look, but having one with your parents can be just as emotional. This photo beautifully captures the moment this father sees his daughter and his touching reaction. Some brides also have their bridal party leave the room so that they can have a first look with the bridesmaids.
5 | First Touch: Whether you are having a first look or not, you can always have a first touch before the ceremony! Sometimes couples like to read letters they wrote to each other while they have their first touch. This bride and groom chose to blow each other a kiss.
