Know your must-have moments 

Your photographer will likely have a keen eye for capturing meaningful moments. However, you’ll want to make sure you communicate with them about your must-have photos.

What aspects of your day do you want to prioritize?

Maybe you’re dying to capture first-look photos with your partner.

Maybe you’ve gone above and beyond to coordinate every fashionable detail between you and your wedding party.

There’s no need for a 20-page shot list – your photographer has got you covered. But a simple list of your must-have moments makes sure you don’t have to worry about any missed details.

Make a timeline (and use it!) 

The structure of a well-planned timeline will greatly impact your wedding photos. Having a set time for all of the day’s important events makes sure you and your photographer are on the same page.

It lessens the potential for unexpected surprises and ensures you have time for each of your must-have moments.

Plus, a solid timeline takes the stress off of you. And that always makes for more natural, comfortable, and candid photos.  

Not sure where to start with making your day-of photography timeline? You’re in luck!

Consider multiple sessions 

Your wedding day is one piece of what’s typically a really important time in your life. Naturally, most of your wedding photos will happen on your wedding day. But why not book multiple sessions to capture even more of your story?

Consider starting with an engagement session. Not only will this help you capture the excitement at the beginning of your wedding journey, but it can also do wonders for getting you comfortable with your wedding photographer. 

And after your big day, why not celebrate a year later with an anniversary session? Follow your photo shoot with a nice dinner out to look back on your first year as a couple. 

From getting engaged, to getting hitched, to celebrating your first anniversary, this is a time filled with meaningful moments worth capturing and a love story worth telling.

Take a deep breath (we got you!)

At the end of the day, the best tip for capturing memorable (and stunning) wedding photos is to take a DEEP breath. 

Weddings can be stressful and full of surprises, but it’s often the unexpected that makes for a truly memorable day. 

You’ve spent the last few months worrying about the details. When your big day finally arrives, it’s time for you to let go. 

Instead of worrying about all the little things you can’t control, focus on being present for what’s about to be one of the most exciting days of your life.

As your photographer, we’ve got you covered in more ways than one. Yes – capturing amazing photos is what we do best, but we’re also really good and pumping up the wedding party, keeping your timeline on track, and finding the missing safety pins.

Trust that everything will be handled. Be yourself, relax, and enjoy your day like you’re supposed to, which of course, makes for the BEST kinds of photos.
