Every wedding has keys events that are expected to be documented in their images. Capturing these is important for creating an album that will tells the story of this special day.
Below are some tips on what to shoot and ideas on what are the Must-Have Shots.
Wedding day coverage usually starts with the bride getting ready.
We can spend between 1 to 3 hours photographing this exciting time. It offers a lot of opportunities for candid and family shots, particularly with the mother and daughter or the bridesmaids.
|While the bride is getting her hair and makeup done, we start photographing all the wedding accessories (dress, shoes, bouquet, rings, veil…)|
Next stage is when bridesmaids or mother of the bride are helping the bride to put her wedding dress, shoes and wedding veil.
After the bride is fully dressed, we will focus on the bridal portrait photos.
Based on allocated time, we do want to photograph the groom before the wedding. It usually takes around 20 minutes.
Again, there are many portraits and details picture opportunities before anyone else arrives. It’s also the perfect time to do formal portraits of the groom, with his dad, and with his best man, with the groomsmen or details such as its tie and tuxedo, putting his watch,...
The groom in the photo should always been central to the composition
Church or other religion locations have their own customs and traditions; Therefore some photography restrictions might apply. For instance, they can let the photographer moving around freely (go into a gallery or the balcony), or they can allow only photographs to be taken from the back, or sometimes they won't accept any pictures during the ceremony.
Whatever photography policies is in place, as a photographer, we keep in mind to work quietly and unobserved—in short, be invisible.
Here some of the events you will cover:
Family groups are photos that are desired by all. We will work with you to find the best time to make the requested "on the list" group shots. If there are too many “must” shots to do in a short time, we will consider making them at the church door or at the reception if needed.
Portraits of the Bride and Groom
After the ceremony, it is usually the best time for portraits of the Bride and Groom. If the light or the location are not good, you can also make the formals at the reception, where we can find a nice setting such as beautiful hotel lobby or outdoor garden.
We make at least two formal portraits, a full-length shot and a three-quarter-length portrait.
Before the guests arrive, we try to make a photograph of the reception site. We photograph a single place setting and a few other details. Usually, the bride loves to see them in the album design.
We take a lot of candid shots during the reception. it is all about the couple and guests having a great time. We will work closer to you to be aware of the flow of the reception events such as the bouquet toss, removing the water, the toasts, the first dance, the cake cutting, and so on
