Your wedding is a day you will want to remember forever. When planning
your wedding in St. Louis,
a wedding photographer will be able to capture your most cherished moments. On the day of your
wedding, it can be hard to keep track of which photos you want to make
sure are not missed. This article will give you a checklist that you and
your photographer can go over before your big day.
Many couples have two photographers, or will get ready at different times
so they can have their photographer take shots of them both getting ready.
Some classic photo options are pictures of the bridal gown on a hanger,
the bridesmaids’ dresses, the rings, and the bride’s jewelry.
You may also want photos of the bridal party applying make-up, bridesmaids
assisting the bride in putting on the dress, and putting on the veil.
The groom may want photos of him and his groomsmen putting on their ties.
Must-have photos of the ceremony include guests arriving, the bridal party and family walking
down the aisle, and the bride and her escort. During the ceremony, wedding
photographers will capture the vows, the “I do’s,” and the kiss.
Before the reception, or before the ceremony, is an ideal time to get
all of the necessary photographs of the bride and groom with family. Make
a list with your wedding photographer of which family members you want
Before guests arrive, have your photographer take photos of the reception
site, and include all the details that you’ve spent the past few
months preparing. Have photos taken of the bride and groom entering, as
well as the bridal party. Take pictures with guests, and of guests dancing.
Many couples opt to have a photo booth for added fun and photo opportunities.
Get photos of the first dances. Have your photographer take photos of
the newlywed exit at the end of the night.
