Hiring a wedding photographer is complicated enough, and while some have a good eye for a timeless photograph, many are looking to you for direction. Don’t overlook this important aspect of your new life together. Capturing perfect photos is more than just a romantic notion; it is part of the start of your new life together.
Decide What’s Important Before the Big Day
Everything in a wedding is rushed, even when it feels like you have time to breathe you’re being pushed to the next event. There’s a lot to be done in a short period of time, so you need to decide where your wedding will linger. If both of you have a mutual love of sweets, spend time cutting cake. If you love spending time with your friends and family, give lots of time to dance. Direct your photographer ahead of time so they can capture which moments you will most want to remember.
Personalize Something Worth Capturing
Weddings are all about small moments you’ll hold dear for the rest of your life. Different couples will want to highlight different aspects, so talk with your partner and see what you both want. Think about what’s important to your relationship, and incorporate that into your wedding. Something as simple as music selection can create an emotional scene that makes for a perfect photo or video.
The wedding is only a beginning, but it’s something you’ll carry with you forever. If you capture photos of that day, you’ll have memories you can reflect on forever.
